I'm a retired cop (Deputy Sheriff) and former military, and now own two companies, or better stated, they own me!
The first which I've had for over 20 years (concurrent to my L.E. career) is a Private Investigative and Civil Court Process Service Company. Our services include locating people, conducting backgrounds (not your $25.00 computer backgrounds, but REAL, in depth backgrounds), asset searches, and on occasion conducting surveillance. We also serve civil court documents across the United States and into several OCONUS Countries.
The second is training company which is relatively new, being formed only the beginning of last year.
We are separated into various divisions, which on occasion overlap, depending on the clientele.
1- Marine Safety.
This unit conducts Airboat, Powerboat and PWC training, and Safety Consulting and Site Reviews.
We offer both basic and advanced courses, to include a Federally certified program for the professional airboat operator. There are also specialized courses in Search & Rescue (SAR), law enforcement/tactical application/operations, and "other" courses suited to and written specifically to fit the client's need. While we have trained a number of private individuals, our clientele last year consisted primarily of government agencies. Our site reviews are conducted to ensure that the commercial marine operator, is providing a safe environment for their passengers, and that all operations are in compliance with Federal, State, and Local laws, as well as industry standards as applicable.
2- Personal Safety (medical).
This team specializes in areas such as First Aid, CPR, and AED Certification, as well as advanced and Austere Medical Treatment. While the basic courses are suitable for the corporate environment, the advanced courses lend themselves well to the sportsman/hiker, camper, boater, off roader and others who occasionally find themselves off the beaten trail and away from immediate medical assistance.
3- Personal Safety/Self Defense.
We do just what it the title implies.
We provide armed and unarmed defensive tactics training, to include both conventional and unconventional weapons and tactics.
Each course is tailored to the specific need of the client, and includes physical training as well as an indoctrination into the legal aspects of the use of force (as applicable to their operation), and the psychology of combat (Pre-UOF mindset, PTSD, etc.).
Our firearms courses (other than basic) include stress courses designed to make the student think and respond to a "known" threat, rather than simply fire randomly at a perceived threat.
All of our instructors come from the Law Enforcement, Fire Rescue/Paramedic, SAR and Military Communities, and all of our courses are open to both the public and private sector with proper identification or vetting for security purposes.
When this isn't keeping me busy, I operate an airboat for a Deployable SAR team, and play "papa" to my 7 year old granddaughter (that's probably the most fun-other than playing on the water )
