About GPI Defense

Always Professional.

Our Story

In 2011, GPI Defense CEO & Founder Troy Skeen began consulting for various security companies. Armed with a background in law enforcement, former military, and a passion for defending the defenseless, he noticed a disturbing trend.

And so, after only a year of consulting, Troy decided that in 2012, it was time to build a new breed of security company, and GPI Defense was born.

Based in the Greater Houston area, we’ve had the honor of providing custom-tailored security services for clients of all sizes and have provided security services in 42 states and three countries.

“Professional guards; quick response to an emergency need, available next day; had asked, I think they would have responded same day. Excellent company to work with regarding any security guard services needed. I highly recommend GPI Defense.”
