Victoria Santagata | Heartland Payment Systems | National Business Consultant
As a experienced professional and national business consultant for Heartland Payment Systems, I have personally had the distinct pleasure of working with the U.S. Protective Service over the last 7 years on many projects. Several of our biggest VIP projects they have been involved with have proven to be very successful and exceeded not only our internal revenue projections, but also the expectations of our select clients. I am extremely excited about the recent development and launch of their new Sentinel 7 asset protection and risk management program as I know and understand the many challenges businesses face today.
The U.S. Protective Service’s business services and security solutions have proven to be so effective, that I now recommend them exclusively to all of my clients and any business that needs real world protection against chronic loss of revenue.
Brian Ross | Music & Records Industry Consultant at International Music Commission, USA
I first met Lance Powers in 1984 when he was assigned to my protection durning many international meetings and events. Today the security company he now represents provides the highest level of specialized security services available to my company which provides music, records, entertainment, concert and international tour support services. We also provide multi-million dollar music consulting and investment banking services throughout the entertainment industry and are well connected with a number of investment bankers, private equity groups, hedge funds, and venture capital firms worldwide.
I would go so far as to say that the security services provided by U.S. Protective Service are not only exceptional, but military grade. Lance Powers and everybody at U.S. Protective Service are carefully selected for their intelligence, creativity, integrity, high ethical values, and extreme competence. Lance has also provided international security services for Brian Ross Productions, Starborn Records and the International Music Commission, specifically in Cannes, France, during the Midem Convention (www.Midem.com). Lance oversaw my activities in connection for international licensing for the music from “We Are the World”. written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. Experiencing the security provided by a professional team from U.S. Protective Service looking after the safety and welfare of the celebrity artists, producers, and executives working directly with me has always given me tremendous confidence and personal satisfaction.
I cannot say enough about the services of U.S. Protective Service other than to say that, in my opinion, there are no finer personal or corporate business protection or executive protective services available at any price, anywhere in the world. I highly recommend the services of Lance Powers and U.S. Protective Service. On a scale of 1-100, I give this company a grade of 10,000. U.S. Protective Service redefines the meaning of the word ‘excellence’. In sum, U.S. Protective Service is an A+ company, 100% state-of-the-art, and at the very top of their game. You will find none better.
Jeff Conway Senior Vice President Mortgage Sub-Prime Division BOK FINANCIAL CORPORATION
U.S. Protective Service provides corporations like BOK with many tremendous advantages with respect to asset protection and risk management services. Their business intelligence capabilities and business security division have proven invaluable in developing an online platform that not only protects BOK and our sister banks from loss of revenue due to new competitors coming into our congested market landscape, but in turn gave us a tremendous competitive advantage over them while dramatically accelerating our customer retention and revenue potential. Over the last year or so, I have enjoyed working with Senior Agent Fleming and his team in the development of the IBS-M1 which has been instrumental in providing effective asset protection and risk management services for BOK.
The U.S. Protective Service delivers world-class business protection and security at an unprecedented level.
David Lyndon Huff | International Music Producer & Entertainment Industry Consultant
Several years ago, Lance Powers of U.S. Protective Service was personally recommended to me by one of my celebrity clients for security and personal protection purposes. In my line of work, one cannot take any chances these days when it comes to protecting yourself, your family, or your clients. From day one, I have been very impressed with Mr. Powers’s professional experience and abilities. Lance and his agents are some of the best protection specialists that I have ever met. They are detail oriented and a meticulous individuals in how they manages my protection and, as I have personally witnessed on several occasions, also lethal in deterring any threats.
I believe that during my last trip to Georgia that Lance and Agent Aggson that were assigned to my protection prevented a life threatening situation and were the only reason I returned home safe. My professional credits include the original music for TV shows: NBC Nightly News, Baywatch, and NBC Dateline, as well as live concerts, HBO original programs, PBS specials, and TV/Radio jingles, and most recently with Leann Rimes on the Desperate Housewives TV series soundtrack. I also contributed music to motion picture soundtracks: Top Gun, Where the Heart is, Runaway Bride, Enough, Serendipity, The Program, The Big Picture, and Life or Something Like That. I have also worked on many specialized music projects with such clients as Billy Ray Cyrus and Martina McBride.
U.S. Protective Service makes it possible for me to continue my work without limitations in a safe and protected manner and are simply the best at what they do.

Jeffrey Jacobs | President & CEO for Open Mind Worx
As the President & CEO for Open Mind Worx, I work with some of the most innovative technology companies in the world. When U.S. Protective Service assigned a specialized group of agents to oversee our projects, we were incredibly impressed by their dedication and drive to bring those projects to fruition. The continuing and long-term success of U.S. Protective Service projects is a testament to outstanding experience and professional abilities of their team members.
I recommend the U.S. Protective Service to anyone that requires the highest level of strategic business development available anywhere!
Jeff Johnson | entrepreneur and an executive producer
As a successful entrepreneur and an executive producer for the Sony Pictures award winning movie RUDDERLESS, I am very impressed with the diversified services of the U.S. Protective Service. Working with such movie industry professionals as William Macy, Laurence Fishburne, Selena Gomez, and Billy Crudup, I can say that the U.S. Protective Service has exceeded the expectations of both my associates and myself. They are an organization unlike any other and have my highest personal and professional recommendation.
Eve Peppers | Professional Mentor Technologies International
As a professional with many years of experience in business development, I was extremely impressed by U.S. Protective Service. My company was engaged with the HALO Technology Group project that was one of U.S. Protective Service’s projects in 2012. The specialized business team that I worked with floored me with their enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanors. They were very reliable, dedicated, and 100% focused on accomplishing all the strategic business development objectives set forth in the project.
Michael Teig | President/CEO at TigerLight. Inc. Corporation
On January 13, 2011 the Tigerlight Corporation contacted U.S. Protective Service for assistance regarding the development and evolution of our T-100 Non-Lethal Device based on their experience as vetted operators. As the President & CEO of Tigerlight, we work with military departments and law enforcement agencies from all over the world. U.S. Protective Service has been a tremendous asset and instrumental in helping Tigerlight understand what professional operators truly need in a Non-Lethal Device to achieve their goals and return home safely.
U.S. Protective Service also developed a transitional technique which enables any user or operator to effectively manipulate their firearm and Tigerlight NLD at the same time until they corruptly identify the threat. This provides a police officer or conceal carry licensee with an 80% quicker response time to an active lethal or non lethal threat. This technique will unquestionably save lives! The Tigerlight Corporation is more than impressed with the U.S. Protective Service and the fine group of professionals that represent their agency.
Chief Financial Officer at SNT MEDIA
I just wanted to professionally acknowledge what an outstanding job U.S. Protective Service has performed in providing services in the areas of corporate security and executive protection.
SNT contracted U.S. Protective service in February of this year on a 3-year term to provide government level security in the event of an active shooter or workplace violence incident, since their agency U.S. Protective Service specializes in counter-terrorism and protection against high-level threats.
Commander Powers and his assigned security teams have demonstrated to be elite protection professionals, extremely detailed and knowledgeable in every aspect of providing government level protection in a corporate environment. As a former SF Italian Alpini solider, I was impressed with how U.S. Protective Service employed superior weapon systems and body armor above standard security or law enforcement in our area.. Their agents expertise at counterterrorism and counter response tactics in relationship to threat neutralization has made SNT, the building where we reside and the surrounding areas extremely safe and secure for our executives, employees and their personal effects, as well as all of our high value corporate assets. What is extremely impressive is how efficiently they deployed agents and other protective resources in our building with multiple occupying companies and over 450 people coming in and out of the building every day.
I will always be available to provide the reference of excellence for the U.S. Protective Service.
Dan Carney | Co-Founder & Former President of Pizza Hut
As former President and Co-Founder of Pizza Hut Inc, I am very impressed with the U.S. Protective Service. They provide very unique and powerful asset and risk management services for many corporations that constantly face a variety of threats both U.S. and abroad.
The methodology and technology with which they conduct their operations with is exemplamary . These experienced professionals are the best of the best and I am honored to be on their board of strategic advisors.
President at SANCTUARY AT LAKEPOINT
As an industry professional and consultant in healthcare for over 50 years, I built a very successful business with multiple locations that needed serious protection against larger health care corporations that were focused on acquiring my patients and staff in order to increase their own profitability. In the past through my investor channels, I had heard about a security company that could do just that, but after hiring numerous marketing and website development companies over the last 3 years in an attempt to do that with zero success, to say the least I was extremely skeptical. Today that is a different story, because after hiring U.S. Protective Service to provide asset protection and risk management services for my locations within 120 days, their Sentinel 7 program changed everything. Today I am now retired and based on the value U.S. Protective Service provided my business, they literally forced the competition to buy me out.
U.S. Protective Service is spectacular in every sense of the word and without any hesitation, I would highly recommend them to any corporation, organization or business.
Jonathan Melendez, Operations Manager at Urgent Care of Kansas City and Urgent Care of Cass County
This professional recommendation is based on the superior performance and professional dedication that I have experienced while working with U.S. Protective Service. As Operations Manager over both Urgent Care of Kansas City and Urgent Care of Cass County, I was amazed at the dedication the U.S. Protective Service team that was assigned to our locations displayed in all facets of our business. We originally contracted U.S. Protective Service to provide asset protection and risk management services, as we were experiencing substantial revenue loss due to new immediate care providers in the area opening multiple new locations.
U.S. Protective Service is unique among the many companies we sought out, and provided us not only with an incredibly successful asset protection and risk management program to drive new customers to our locations, but they also increased our patient retention for both locations as well. After their security business team arrived within 120 days our company gained over 1200 new patients and our BBB raking went to A+.
Thanks to U.S. Protective Service, we are also now in the process of opening our third location and have requested total exclusivity for their program in both the Kansas and Missouri areas. Based on that experience alone, I highly recommend U.S. Protective Service for any company that places a high value on success.
Carolee Martin | GS 15 Ministry of Defense Senior Advisor United States Department of Defense
n a world of uncertainty and strife where terrorism is decentralized and continues to remain present in our homeland, the ARGUS VT-1 platform that U.S. Protective Service has been instrumental in the development of, will provide first responders, special operations, and security operations with a new level of defense against terrorism. I am looking forward to working with Director Powers and the elite counter-terrorism team he commands as we provide special training and support for the ARGUS VT-1 platform.
I am honored to be working with the U.S. Protective Service in the pursuit of savings innocent lives.

Steve Blair | President of International K9
As owner-operator of one of the most prestigious K9 training facilities in the United States, I feel confident that the dogs I have trained are in good hands when partnered with U.S. Protective Service agents.
At International K9 we provide elite personal protection dogs to many celebrities, pro-athletes in the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB, as well as C-Suite business professionals. Individuals such as these demand the best: especially when their life or the lives of their families may be in danger or depend on it. I have personally worked and trained with several agents of the U.S. Protective Service and can tell you from first hand experience that their knowledge base and skill sets are exemplary. International K9 also provides advanced K9 training and support to many law enforcement agencies and is dedicated to excellence.
The U.S. Protective Service is by far one of the most outstanding security companies that International K9 has ever worked with.
Damon Elliott | American producer, Writer, Composer, Recording Artist and Entrepreneur.
As a well respected producer, writer, composer, recording artist and entrepreneur with clients such as Destiny’s Child, Beyonce, Pink, Gwen Stefani, Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera, and Macy Gray, I use U.S. Protective Service’s personal security services exclusively for my protection. I have earned seven Grammy Award Nominations, and also won a Grammy Award for my rendition of “Lady Marmalade” featured in the 2001 film Moulin Rouge. Due to my success and worldwide travels, I am very pleased with the level of security and service that the U.S. Protective Service has provided for my family, friends, clients and I.
I highly recommend their services for anyone that is serious about security and personal protection as they are some of the most bad ass high;y trained individuals in black suits that I have ever met.
Principal at COSTA LUDUS
I am honored to be working with the U.S. Protective Service and look forward to heading up their new G-7 Active Shooter and Counter Response Instructor Team in 2019.
After working with the agency since 2016, I believe what sets U.S. Protective Service apart from any other organization is their relentless dedication to saving lives and total commitment to exceeding the expectations of those they are assigned to train or protect.
U.S. Protective Service is like no other organization I have ever come into contact with, and their credentials and professionalism both on and off duty are impressive.
Colonel Jim Duffy | U.S. Army Ranger Delta Force Retired & Former Top Technology Advisor And Commander In Southwest Asia To The Senior Army Commander For US Central Command.
"Last year marked the biggest annual rise in deaths caused by terrorism, with more than 32,000 people killed in attacks around the world, so we need more organizations like the the U.S. Protective Service to help win the fight against the ongoing threat of terrorism. ARGUS-VT1 developed and supported by U.S. Protective Service is what security forces and military counter terrorism units around the world need to effectively meet and counter the ever-changing threats of global terrorism. Retaining the ability to quickly adapt and counter any threat is what tips the scales of engagement by providing those who fight terrorism with the ability to prevail."
Jim Duffy is currently a senior partner and Director of Projects and Strategic Initiatives for H3 Solutions DMMC, headquartered in Dubai, UAE and the CEO/Founder of GTP LLC, a US Government Consulting Company in the areas of Security Technology, C4ISR, C2 Systems, ITC, Logistics, Project Management, Infrastructure Development & Engineering Support.

Rick A Shepard
President/CEO GOLDEN HEART SENIOR CARE
After investing a considerable amount of money in a Golden Heart Senior Care franchise, I soon learned that I was going to need to find a way to protect my investment from larger competitors that already had a tried and proven track record in my areas of coverage. As a 30 year plus experienced business professional, I knew that I was going to need more then just another marketing company or consulting company, and that I seriously needed a way to protect my business investment. That being said, I started looking for an asset protection and risk management company to help me keep my franchise on life support, because everyday larger companies with national T.V. advertisements and marketing billboards were not only taking new business from me, but they were also even attempting to hire my employees. Simply put after hiring the U.S. Protective Service, everything changed as their agency immediately assigned a security business team that engaged my threats head on and in a short period of time had developed a powerful asset protection and risk management platform exclusive to my area that not only protected my business, but it ended up accelerating my revenue and in conjunction substantially increased my patient flow.
If you really need your business protected from larger competitors that are responsible for long term revenue loss, then adhere to my advice and contact the U.S. Protective Service.
Ron Paul | Republican Presidential Candidate for the United States of America
I would like to thank the U.S. Protective Service for their excellent dignitary protection services. As you are aware, the job of protecting presidential candidates has become a much greater challenge in recent years than ever before. We live in an age of unprecedented political divisiveness and threats can materialize at a moments notice. This can impact the security and safety of those responsible for governing our nation including the final outcome of any election.
U.S. Protective Service is exemplary both in the competence with which they provide protection, and in regard to how they perform their task in and amongst large and disorganized crowds.
Kathleen Forrest | Real Estate Investor
I have been working with the U.S. Protective Service now for over 5 years and in the beginning was very skeptical that their agency could provide me with the type of protection I needed to protect my diversified business assets, which I have spent many years building. As being considered one of the most successful real estate investors in the business, I do not have time to always worry about incompetence, especially with my business growing at such a tremendous rate. I personally cannot say enough about how pleased I am with the professional asset protection and personal security services that I have received from the U.S. Protective Service since I hired them in 2009.
I am a very demanding professional and in my opinion the U.S. Protective Service sets the standard for excellence.
Sheriff Richard Ivan Mack | United States Congressional Candidate
As the former Sheriff of Graham County, Arizona and Congressional Candidate for United States Congress, I was gratified with the special protection services which U.S. Protective Service provided me with during my speaking event with U.S. Presidential Candidate Ron Paul. Lance Powers, as well as all the members of my security detail, did an outstanding job and I felt very safe at all times. The U.S. Protective Service is a world class organization!
Ann Nguyen Senethivisouk | Software Engineer at The Boeing Company
I met Lance Powers over 6 years ago when he was on site with a business intelligence group from U.S. Protective Service. Mr. Powers had me at hello with his professional demeanor and the way that he conducted himself in various situations. Mr. Powers is highly intelligent and projects a level of confidence that makes anyone want to strive harder to achieve their goals. I am not impressed easily, but highly recommend Mr. Powers without reservation to any corporation that places a high value on integrity and performance.
Director of Strategic Corporate Alliances
U.S. Protective Service from a corporate prospective brings an unprecedented level of experience and knowledge rarely seen in our industry. I am not easily impressed, but working with their directors and agents from day one has been a very rewarding experience. Combining their talents with the talents of our team at Protection One will set a new benchmark for excellence in the security industry. One thing I will also mention in closing based on my first encounter with U.S. Protective Service, is that their protection agents like agent Fleming and agent Epting are not to be tested as they clearly demonstrated that their skill sets far exceed the average man.
