Congrats to Gold Shield Home Watch of Alva, FL, on its fourth-year accreditation!​

Glen and Gary Fredericks

Gold Shield Home Watch of Alva, Florida, has earned accreditation from the NHWA for the fourth year.

Co-owners and brothers Glen and Gary Fredericks are retired police officers from the Boston area and are now full-time residents of Fort Myers. Glen and Gary have been trained in crime prevention, crime prevention through environmental design, and target hardening, which is a process where a building is strengthened into a more difficult target. They have also advised the public about home security.

Glen is a retired Detective Sergeant with over 32 years of law enforcement, corrections, and industrial /retail security. He has a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and has extensive training in crime and intelligence analysis, crime scene evidence, and Information technology.

Gary is a retired Detective Lieutenant Commander with 30 years of law-enforcement service. He has a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, a Juris Doctorate in Family Law, and he is now a practicing attorney and licensed real estate broker.

Glen and Gary did the “snowbird thing” after purchasing property in Southwest Florida: During extended absences, they took the chance that their homes would be okay during the harsh, hot summer months. Glen and Gary found themselves glued to the Weather Channel, watching approaching hurricanes and hoping for the best. They did not use a Home Watch service, and they both had that constant, horrible feeling that something may have happened to their properties. Gold Shield Home Watch’s clients don’t have to feel that way, knowing that their homes are cared for by professionals.

Gold Shield Home Watch is built on one simple philosophy: “To provide people with the key to relaxation and peace-of-mind.” They pride themselves on their professionalism and discretion. When Glen and Gary say, “We are at your service,” they mean it. Everything they do is built around their clients’ particular needs. Glen and Gary have each sat on boards of condominium associations, so they understand the concerns of property owners when they are away.

Both Glen and Gary have earned the designation of Certified Home Watch Professional from the NHWA, putting them into the class of elite Home Watch providers. The CHWP designation shows their commitment to providing excellent service to their clients.

Gold Shield Home Watch serves Fort Myers, Estero, and Alva. You can reach them at (239) 888-9881 or at Learn more from their website, at

Congratulations, Glen and Gary!

As always, I wish you

Much success,

Jack Luber
Executive Director
