Headquartered in Dallas, Texas

The Shaffer Security Group leads the way in Security Consulting and Risk Assessment services for organizations through-out the United States and abroad.
 
Our team of experts helps protect our clients from potential threats that could harm their business, enterprises, interests, and staff members. From special event security planning where we create strategic security plans that have ensured the safety of over 100,000 civilians and staff members, to situational awareness training for personnel to proactively think about security threats and risks and how to properly respond to an active threat.

Our philosophy is simple.

The Shaffer Security Group was created for the protection and security of our clients’ assets and interests. To train and educate employees, staff members, and the general public that Survival is not a Skill Set, it is a Mindset! To ensure our clients remain safe while traveling domestically and abroad.

There is no suitable word for what we do. Traditional security does not fit; our team is composed of FBI Hostage Rescue Team Operators, Law Enforcement Officers, Intelligence Officers, and Special Military Operation Officers. Security response services does not seem proactive enough. Our job is to prevent
incidents from happening; responding to a threat after the fact means there was a weakness in the security planning. We see ourselves as security planners, not as a security guard company.

Our goal is to help our clients create a unique strategic security plan and solution that will span their entire operation.
