Rio Grande Region President – Jamie Ochoa
I am Jaime S. Ochoa, President and qualified manager of OTSO Inc. D.B.A. Valley Wide Security. Valley Wide Security has been providing comprehensive security services to the Rio Grande Valley since 1986. Our operations include a Security Officer division, a Private Investigators division, and a Security System division. In addition to these services, we also offer a Level III Security Academy for commissioned officers. As a Texas LTC Instructor, I also offer License to Carry Handgun Classes, as well as basic handgun training.
I am registered with the Department of Public Safety as the Qualified Manager, Private Investigator, Commissioned Security Officer, Level 1 Alarms, and Level III Fire Arms and Classroom Instructor. I am also the Registered Manager under Texas Department of Insurance and Residential Alarm Superintendent (Fire System Planner). I am also member of the Texas Burglar and Fire Alarm Association, RGV TBFAA, RGV Border Chiefs Coalition, Brownsville Crime Stoppers and the Brownsville Chamber.
I have been serving ASSIST in various capacities over the years. I was a member of ASSIST for a few years before becoming actively involved as a Vice-President for RGV ASSIST Region in 2003 – 2006 when we started our region in the Rio Grande Valley, ASSIST Secretary 2004 – 2006, RGV ASSIST President 2006 – Present. I firmly believe that participation in the ASSIST organization has been instrumental in networking with other security professionals to further develop our image as a profession which allows us to bring our security issues to the legislature and make positive changes that will best serve our customers’ security needs.
