Trained as a polygraph examiner with the U.S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps, Raymond Boyd serves as Director of Security for a major domestic airline. Emboldened with the courage to start their own business, Barbara and Ray Boyd found Boyd & Associates, a private security firm focusing on criminal investigation services, including polygraph testing. Their clients include such companies as Mattel Toys and CBS Records.
The company moves its headquarters, purchasing a two-story 8,000 square foot building at 6319 Colfax Avenue in North Hollywood, providing 24/7 security services.
As municipalities cut their local police resources, the company increases its service offerings to include security officers, burglar alarms and patrol cars – to support local areas.
Always striving to provide an unparalleled level of service to its customers, Boyd & Associates increases its offerings and personnel, as well as renovates its Central Station.
