About BTSI


Edward Pittari, President and Owner, retired as a Sergeant from the New York City Police Department in July, 2003. During his twenty-year tenure with New York’s Finest, Mr. Pittari gained a wealth of knowledge in security detection, investigations and supervisory management. It was during this same period that, Mr. Pittari expanded the realm of his experience in security and investigations by working part-time as an event security specialist at many high-end affairs.

Upon his retirement, and in response to the increased demand for security professionals in the post 911era, Mr. Pittari decided to make the security business his full time profession and formed BTSI in the spring of 2003.

Mr. Pittari and BTSI now have a track record that spans the last fifteen years for providing event and private party security, investigations, armed and unarmed security services.
