Hexagon Security Team
My name is Reno DiCarlantonio, I am from Palm Beach County, FL where I have lived the majority of my life. I attended Cardinal Newman High School, in West Palm Beach. After high school I played baseball at Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. I finished up my studies at Florida Atlantic University, where I majored in Criminal Justice with a minor in Public Administration.
As soon as I graduated from college, I put myself through the Police Academy at Palm Beach State College. While I was in the academy I was fortunate to be hired by the Delray Beach Police Department (DBPD), which is where I would spend some of the most exciting years of my life. I started off as a young rookie cop looking to make a name for myself on road patrol. I quickly learned in my field training that my attention was constantly drawn to being a member of the SWAT team and narcotics unit. Shortly after I got off probation, tryouts were held for the SWAT team which I am very privileged to say I was selected for. I spent the next couple of years training and executing multiple high risk felony search warrants, call outs for barricaded subjects, picking up homicide suspects, hostage situations, and even got to assist with dignitary protection during the 2012 Presidential Debates.
During this same time I also became a member of our Departments TACT Unit, which handles mainly street level narcotics, illegal gambling, and prostitution. While in this unit I was fortunate enough to put together multiple cases, work with members of other local and federal agencies on cases, assist our VIN Unit in a wiretap investigation, and work undercover.
Shortly thereafter, I was extremely privileged to be offered the position of Director of Operations for S3 Security and found Atlanta, GA to be my new home. For over four years I have assisted with the development of S3 Security and Hexagon Security in becoming one of the premier security companies in the Southeast United States. In October 2015, I was brought on board as part equity owner of Leviathan Group I, LLC dba Hexagon Security with two fellow colleagues. I look forward to the continued growth and success of Hexagon Security and assisting in the security of personal assets.
