The SHAFFER SECURITY GROUP (SSG) was founded due to the need for a top echelon, experienced, investigative security firm in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Greg Shaffer, a highly trained FBI agent, Counter Terrorism expert & former Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) Operator has teamed up with Chris “Dutch” Moyer and Brian Harpole. Dutch is a 26-year veteran of the elite U.S. Army’s Special Operations Command; while Brian is a retired, highly decorated police officer, SWAT Operator and Tactical Trainer.

The SSG team of talented and experienced security experts has operated, trained and taught in the Middle East, Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa. Our international liaison partners in law enforcement, military and intelligence provide SSG with a vast global network for both investigations and training; and truly sets apart SSG from other Security Firms.

Our security planning for large-scale, high profile events is unmatched. Our Executive Protection experience includes security details in high-threat environments as well as domestic, low-profile protection. SSG’s tactical training of international Counter Terrorism Teams, SWAT Teams, Police and Civilians across the globe has earned SSG a reputation as a premier tactical training firm.

Utilizing the skills derived from decades of experience, SSG prides itself at understanding each client’s unique security needs and providing customized solutions to effectively mitigate risk providing a safe, secure and welcoming environment. SSG has supported Fortune 100 companies, non-profits, top law firms and foreign governments around the globe.

SSG has also partnered with the Consolidated Training Group LLC, and has a newly renovated, 178 acres Firearms Training Center (FTC) located just 45 minutes west of the DFW International Airport.  Our FTC offers multiple handgun ranges, a 1100 yard long-range rifle deck, a 180 degree, 80x80x80 yard carbine range, a helicopter (non-operational) and two roof pitches from which to practice your rifle/carbine skills; plus an obstacle course, Close Quarter Battle (CQB) live-fire Shoot House, camp grounds, covered areas for instruction and more.  All of our courses are TCOLE Certified.

Our comprehensive global security solutions begin with thorough threat and vulnerability assessments based on up-to-date, local intelligence from those on the ground.  We then create, manage and implement security, intelligence and training solutions designed to protect businesses, organizations, facilities, individuals and special events both domestically and internationally.
