Mr. Bowen has a long and distinguished career in private security. He first began his work in the field in 1986. He has hundreds of hours standing post in both physical asset protection and executive protection. In 1988 he became a partner in a private patrol company (PPO). His experiences as both a security officer and PPO underscored the need for substantial, comprehensive and practical training for all security officers. In 2004 he made the switch and began teaching security officers full-time.
Mr. Bowen is also one of the most respected NRA Firearms Counselors in the United States with thousands of firearms instructors and students trained under his practiced eye. He is also a certified concealed firearms permit instructor for three states: California, Utah and Florida.
Mr. Bowen owns and operates multiple physical security officer training facilities in the Los Angeles area and the premier online California security officer system. It is rare for him to enter a secured facility and not recognize one of his students on patrol.
