If the battery was checked and you still have clicking, check the battery terminals and wiring. Also your ignition switch/lock cylinder might be the issue since you said the radio and security lights were on. You'll have to do some more probing. Don't replace parts until you find the problem.

Also , what is the voltage on the battery? Who checked it? If you had to jump it , I suspect you don't have enough cranking amps. Remove it and have your local auto parts store bench test it. If it is over 5 years old, it's time to replace anyway.
