What would it take to be an armed officer at a New Mexico school?

Triad Defense's owner, David Brown, was interviewed by KOB. Three security guards, all with the Dulce Independent School District, have spent the last six days going through 50 hours of gun training funded by the district.


Sief Ali, came all the way from Texas to obtain his New Mexico Security Guard Level 2, 20-hour certification. He found the NM law enforcement standards more challenging than Texas requirements. He is looking forward to Level 3 training at the end of the month. Concealed carry on the horizon. He had never been pepper sprayed. Sief laughed amongst the tears. He should be proud of his efforts and accomplishments.


Just catching up on acknowledging the effort of all my clients in our last range class. Among the participants were concealed carry recertifications, security guard Level 3 recertifications, private contractor, retired LE, special ed teacher and a retired fire chief. Great job by my range assistants in helping keep things safe and on track. Man I cherish our 2nd amendment.


What a great group of dedicated professionals. Wonderful day of productive training at Founders Ranch. The best part - the range is only 8 minutes from our new and beautiful home.


Simple mechanics of leverage disarming. Over and over. Slow is smooth, smooth becomes fast, fast becomes dynamic, dynamic is survival. 40 hours of Level 2 Security Officer training provided to Albuquerque Transit Authority by Triad Defense.


So this is what the 30th of April at Founders Ranch was supposed to look like. Not 5 inches of snow. Sorry we had to reschedule today's Tactical Urban Pistol Course and CCW training. A heart felt thank you to all of my dedicated clients who were willing to reschedule for next week because of weather. Gives everyone that much more time to review your escalation of force standards, and do some focused dry-fire, prior to live fire. See everyone on the 7th!


Pop Quiz fun folks. So I offered to clean the gun of one of my range assistants, and what do you think I found? 1) gummed up extractor. 2) malfunction in the making. 3) poor gun hygiene. 4) archeological dig. 5) all of the above. Don't think our will happen again.


Final day qualifications, speed re-loading. Central Consolidated School District Security Team. Stellar efforts! Great team!

Testimonials | Triad Defense

Thank you, Bryan, for the great testimonial!

"I recently attended the Level 2 Security Officer Certification class taught by David Brown, Special Projects Manager of Triad Defense, and I am truly impressed.
The class encompasses all of the elements necessary for a Security professional to expand both their knowledge and proficiency in their field. Beyond just the legal and technical aspects of carrying out the duties of Level 2, the course also provides the operator with the philosophy and principles that make the difference between “just doing the job” and knowing how to be a professional in the Security Industry.
The physical training: unarmed, handcuffing and baton use were excellent and provided me, as a student with both the ability and the confidence to successfully control any situation that might arise as a Security Officer.
I highly recommend to anyone in the Security field, either just starting or a Level 1 Officer looking to grow in the industry, TAKE THIS COURSE! "
