LionHeart Security Services Paves Way for Arizona House Bill 2096

by Anthony Rumore on 02/06/20

LionHeart Security Services Paves Way for Arizona House Bill 2096 Veteran-owned company works hard to support returning veterans. 

PHOENIX - Feb. 6, 2020 - PRLog -- On January 27, 2020, the Arizona State House of Representatives' Committee on Military & Veterans Affairs passed House Bill 2096.  Introduced by Republican House Representative, Jay Lawrence, HB2096 focuses on improving Security Guard licensing regulations for recently discharged veterans. The conception of the bill was by Michael Morrison, a  veteran of both the US Navy and US Army, President/CEO of Tempe-based LionHeart Security Services (LHSS.) 

As a military veteran, Mr. Morrison understands the potential challenges faced when returning from a deployment and separating from military services.  His hope is to make jobs readily available for recently discharged veterans. In fact, LHSS prides themselves on employing veterans and, out of thousands of veteran-owned businesses in Arizona was recently listed by the Phoenix Business Journal as being #5 on the Top-25 Veteran-owned Business List in 

Morrison says, "In general, veterans are honorable, precise with directions, and extremely detail orientated. Since members of the military already have this structure in place, it makes them a great candidate for security services." 

In the recent past, a veteran would wait up to 30 days to obtain a guard card, therefore not allowed to work in the industry during the wait time. HB2096 allows a security guard company to sponsor a veteran to hold a temporary guard card.   By having a security guard company as a sponsor, the veteran can only work for that one specific company with the temporary card.  With these changes, a veteran could essentially work immediately. They will take the mandatory guard class, obtain their completion certificate, and go to DPS to get their temporary guard card.  Of course, background checks are still evaluated, and the veteran must have been honorably discharged within 3 years of application.

Surpassing Arizona Mandated Requirements for Security Guards

by Anthony Rumore on 01/08/20

Arizona law requires a person to obtain a 70% shooting accuracy to qualify for a firearms license!  At LionHeart Security Services, we have always held our armed security guards to an even higher standard.  For instance, we require our staff to pass the State firearms licensing qualification with an accuracy of 90%.  In addition, all fired hits must remain on the target silhouette even if they miss the target zone.  Ultimately, that means we accept absolutely no stray bullets fired to become a LionHeart Armed Security Officer 


To our team, the odds of 70% accuracy is not good enough!  For the safety of our clients, their customers, and the general public we go above and beyond state laws to demand a higher standard of accuracy for our armed staff.  As a 100% Veteran owned company, LionHeart Security recognizes that every single round fired has potential to cause grave damage if it does not hit the correct target.  From office towers in Phoenix, Arizona to remote villages in West Africa, we continually maintain these core values, whether our client is located locally or internationally


Of course, most security guard companies follow these exact state laws.  In reality, why would they not?   However, aLionHeart Security, we continually work to develop more rigorous standards for our staff, in hopes it can change the state laws. From surpassing state mandated guard training hours for armed and unarmed officers, hosting specialized security education courses, and demanding more precise marksmanship accountability, LionHeart does our part to ensure safety is managed in the safest way possible. 


At LionHeart, we can create the most effective security plan for any endeavor. Wprovide elite professional services for HOAs, public/private events, executive protection, tactical response, and service from Individuals to small business all the way to national and international brands and corporations.?
