May 14, 2018 (Ventura, CA) — Boyd & Associates (Boyd), a Ventura-based security services company, donated a large part of a burglar alarm and video surveillance system to the local, top-ranked, Montalvo Little League (League). Headquartered in Ventura, Boyd is a full service residential and commercial security protection firm serving Southern California.
Recently, Montalvo Little League experienced break-ins and damage to their facility on Johnson Drive, adjacent to their baseball field. After assessing the danger, damage and loss related to successive burglaries, the League’s Board determined they needed a security solution and came to Boyd & Associates.

We’re proud to contribute to a group that does so much good in our community,” Boyd added.
The League’s burglar alarm system includes a control panel, keypad, a motion sensor, micro-contacts for doors/windows and a siren. Coupled with a six-camera video surveillance system, the equipment will help prevent unwanted entries to the League’s concession service windows, doors, attic and perimeter,
“We are thrilled Boyd stepped up to the plate and made a substantial contribution towards our protection,” said Paula Millott, President of Montalvo Little League. She added, “This will further our League’s mission of offering safe, fun recreation for our community.”
