BOMA 2020: The Show Must Go On!

It’s disappointing that the annual BOMA Georgia Trade Show had to be canceled because of the danger of COVID-19. The show was scheduled for May 6th, and we were all looking forward to attending, but it’s essential to keep people safe and healthy, and it’s far from the only conference or event that needed to be canceled or postponed. With any luck, BOMA 2020 will be held on its revised date in October, but until we’re able to meet in person, here are a few FAQs to help you assess and meet your security needs.


Where is BOS Security located? 

BOS Security has offices in Athens, and Duluth, Georgia and Gainesville, Florida. We can support the Atlanta Metropolitan area and Greater Atlanta.

BOS will complete the minimum twenty-four hours of initial training prior to start plus eight more training hours during the first year. 


Do you provide Commercial or Class A Property-specific training?

How is BOS Security responding to the COVID-19 pandemic 

BOS Security is in continuous communication with our clients and informing them of new developments and the potential impact of COVID-19.

We have also educated our officers on the importance of Social Distancing and preventative strategies such as wearing protective gloves while on duty, sanitizing surfaces, and avoiding touching their faces.

BOS Security leaders are actively engaged in informative webinars about the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure best practices are passed along to our clients and Officers.
