Highly Trained and State Certified Security Specialists 

At Cascadia, we do things differently. Our security specialists are thoroughly screened, certified by the state, and undergo rigorous training. We’ve implemented such high standards for one sole purpose: to keep you and your business safe. We actively recruit highly trained military and law enforcement veterans as our security specialists.



Our Team Offers The Best Overall Security Experience

At Cascadia Global Security we are different. We understand that there is more to your private security experience than our security service professionals. Your experience starts with our office, the first phone call you make. We are known for our customer service and are proud to provide the best overall private security experience for you and your business. 

Providing the best overall security experience takes a devoted team that is: transparent and forthcoming with information, prompt and reliable, easy to reach and to communicate with, and has a strong focus on customer experience. Services as important as your security demand a company that is readily available for you. 

Our staff is made up predominantly of veterans, guard/reserves and retired law enforcement to ensure that our clients have the professionalism and care that they deserve. Our highly skilled officers are fully trained in de-escalation as well as situational and tactical awareness. We provide uniquely tailored security experiences to our clientele in many different industries at a fair price. 

Together, our office staff and our security service professionals provide the best overall security experience. Call us today, and see how we can be the best for you. 



Vast Security Experience and Entrepreneurial Ambition

When our founders, Asa Palagi and Josh Harris met as students at Washington State University, it was clear they both had ambition and entrepreneurship in their blood. They regularly brainstormed wild business ideas (on-campus beer pong league, anyone?)—until the two went their separate ways after graduation. 

Years later—and with extensive professional experience under their belts—Asa and Josh rediscovered their shared passion for entrepreneurship. Bringing their vast backgrounds of security experience to the table, they set off to provide high-quality security services in the private sector. There was no better place to test the waters than in their home state of Washington. 

With nothing more than eighteen hundred bucks, a garage, and a shared dream, Cascadia Global Security was born. 

CGS now boasts nationwide coverage and offers different career paths to new security specialists, veterans, and anyone wanting to further the CGS mission.

Our Founders:

Asa Palagi

A visionary at heart, Asa has served as an Army Officer, a firefighter, and a Deputy Sheriff in Malheur County, Oregon. Asa’s experience in the Military Police Corps helped him fine-tune his leadership skills and operations planning abilities.

Joshua C. Harris

Prior to founding Cascadia, Josh deployed with Special Forces to support Operation Inherent Resolve as an Army Interrogator and Chinese Linguist. Josh attended the University of Maryland and Villanova University for degrees in, respectively, Finance and Law.

Our mission

At Cascadia Global Security, we believe there’s a better way to handle your security needs. Which is why CGS actively recruits highly trained military and law enforcement veterans to bring you the professionalism and care that you deserve.
