What About The Chicago Firearm Permit Program?

    The Chicago Police Gun Registration Section has informed us that they will no longer process Chicago Firearm Permits or renewals for any firearms.


Our Statement of Purpose

To provide professional, sound training to individuals at all levels, Civilians, Private Security and Sworn Law Enforcement. To sponsor and host both private and public sector investigative and protective trainings, seminars, and instructional programs, in order to produce professional, ethical and detailed investigators and officers for the sectors requiring their services. Many individuals wish to get a sound start in an investigative or protective career, but don't know where to go to get sound knowledge. We focus on providing the student with the proper knowledge to make the right decisions, which often result in that individual avoiding the need to restrain someone. A thinking individual evaluates the circumstances in order to make the right decision before leaping into action.
