Gold Shield Home Watch of Fort Myers, FL, earns second-year accreditation from the NHWA!

Glen and Gary Fredericks


Gold Shield Home Watch of Fort Myers, Florida, has earned accreditation from the NHWA for the second year.

Co-owners and brothers Glen and Gary Fredericks have a combined experience of more than 65 years in law enforcement, security, and the real-estate industry. They 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: They took the chance, during their extended absences, 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 have 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 no longer 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, from prompt scheduling to custom Home Watch inspections, is built around their clients’ particular needs. Glen and Gary have each sat on boards of directors for 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.

I got to meet up with Glen and Gary at our Fort Myers get-together during my Florida tour last June.

Gold Shield Home Watch serves the greater Fort Myers area, Estero, Bonita Springs, Alva, Buckingham, and North Fort Myers. 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
