About NMS Security

Formed in 1974 to provide security services for the trans-Alaska oil pipeline, NMS Security (known as Purcell Security in Alaska) is a division of NANA Management Services, LLC (NMS).

NMS is owned by NANA Development Corporation, (a wholly owned subsidiary of NANA Regional Corporation, the Kotzebue-based Alaska Native Corporation established by the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971) and Sodexo USA. In our 40 years of delivering quality security services, NMS Security has steadily developed and diversified its staff, its clients, its technology, and its protective services and systems.

Today, with dozens of corporate clients in both Alaska and the Continental US, NMS Security is proud to maintain its role as an experienced and responsible security provider throughout the country.

From the excellence of our daily workforce to the strength and leadership of our management team, no other security company will provide a greater value to your operation. In addition, we are Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) certified, delivering yet another opportunity to benefit your business through our mutual partnership. Our commitment to the environment is evidenced in our work with every client we serve.

NMS Security is the largest and most experienced security provider to the oil industry in Alaska. We provide year round security for the Conoco Philips Alpine field in the National Petroleum Reserve, and all the security services for the greater Prudhoe Bay field for British Petroleum. Our experience at working in cold, remote and difficult climates is second-to-none, with a safety record of more than 5-million man-hours without a lost time incident. 

NMS Security business development continues to expand our client sphere, reaching out to deliver security services to a wide variety of businesses and institutions. Today, we are proud to serve not only our oilfield clients of 30 years, but also clients from federal, state and local governments, corporate facilities, health care providers, manufacturing centers, the telecommunications industry and museums.
