Meet the Benicia Man Who Guards Jim Harbaugh

Jim Vretzos and his Greater Bay Protective Services business approach security from a prepared, professional perspective.

When people like San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh or Michael Jordan come through California needing security, they can call on Jim Vretzos and his Greater Bay Protective Services. In fact, they already have.

Vretzos believes that's because his approach to security and protection comes with a highly professional, conservative and prepared response.

"Our officers are held to a high moral and ethical standard; our firm demands that each officer reflect reliability, professionalism, integrity, loyalty and experience," Vretzos said.

The Benicia-based business services myriad clients, ranging from the Oakland Athletics to Russell Simmons, the Solano County Fair and even Bob Dylan.

A quick look at the business's Facebook page shows pictures of Vretzos with some of his more famous clients and testimonials from the clients themselves.

"The best," said Lana Dora of the Danville-based Lana's Egg Whites fitness business. "Thanks for making all our trips SAFER, Jim."

Vretzos explains his security professionals are carefully screened, selected and bonded.

"GBPS trains these security team members specifically to the client project to which they are assigned," he said.

According to Vretzos, GBPS can handle contracts from executive protection to chemical processing plants and pharmaceutical facilities to high-rise office buildings, large sporting events, corporate campuses and schools.

"We protect the safety of our customers’ people, assets and business continuity every day," Vretzos said.

No reply from JB or the Patch on his dissappearance. Maybe he has moved on to bigger and better things. That would not take much. I sure hope everything is OK with JB. He was the only spark on the Patch staff. It could be a good comment article written by the Patch staff. At least tell us what is up. No lois Requist? It appears the Patch has combined resources for more non journalist to write their goofy articles. But I must admit I love to comment on them it brings out all the Liberals.
