Todd Horn Security Consultant

Todd A. Horn, Pres.

After serving as a patrol officer, Mr. Horn was promoted to Detective, where he investigated homicides, burglaries, robberies, rapes, felony assaults and thefts, as well as actually processing the crime scene. This gave him direct knowledge and understanding of why certain people, businesses, buildings or corporations are targeted, and how to reduce that possibility.

He was a founding member of their SWAT team and promoted to the level of Team Leader (second in command), and was also deeply involved in officer survival training as a firearms, pepper spray, baton, Taser and “Use of Force” instructor (when to use what level of force). During and after this time, he was assigned to assist the Secret Service on numerous occasions on Presidential and VIP visits.

Mr. Horn was promoted to Sergeant in the Patrol Division and then transferred to the Personnel and Training Division, where he was responsible for all aspects of department, city, state and federally mandated training in all aspects of law enforcement duties. This included reviewing existing policies and procedures to keep them current and developing new one’s when needed, such as “Active Shooter” and “School/Work Place Violence.” He was also heavily involved in conducting and overseeing background investigations for potential hires.

After a 24-year law enforcement career, Mr. Horn was an instructor at the SIGARMS/Sig Sauer Training Academy, which is an internationally know firearms and “Use of Force” training center.  Students included civilian, law enforcement, military and security personnel. The courses he taught ranged from beginner level students up to and including instructor level courses in handgun, rifle and shotgun for self-defense. His duties also included reviewing and updating course lesson plans such as “Concealed Carry” and developing new courses such as “Home Defense.”

In 2012, Mr. Horn created Argent Security Consulting in order to meet the growing security concerns of people, companies and businesses who realize they must take steps in order to reduce their vulnerabilities. He is a member of the American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS), who requires and verifies a written application for membership, and also has over eight years of retail firearms and non-lethal sales experience at the Kittery Trading Post, Kittery, ME.
