Welcome to Secure 1776 – Public Safety Professional Resource, LLC. Our firm and website are dedicated to helping foster enhanced public safety – particularly in the field of law enforcement.

We offer professional training and consulting services, as well as analysis of key news and research related to public safety.

Without question, America is in the midst of a public safety crisis. The way forward must be a proactive one. In this effort, it is essential for us not to be deceived by those who are seeking perpetual division for their own ideological and political purposes. When the police are one with the community, our neighborhoods are safer, freer, more stable, and better positioned to help foster the improved well-being of all of the community’s members.

Why Secure 1776

Learn more about why Secure 1776 was chosen as our first name by reading our 2022 American Independence Day Editorial. We also strongly encourage every American to read the United States Constitution. Without question, the constitution is the foundation necessary for our communities to both secure individual liberty and enhance public safety.

We believe in the enduring importance of the American Ideal. America was founded as a republic. A nation which established a government that understood that each individual had been granted unalienable rights by the Creator. That among these were life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Within this ideal, no one person is above the law, all are equal before the law, and none are without its protections. All those who wield governmental authority are accountable to the people. This ideal remains an essential guidepost, if the nation is to have both individual liberty and public safety.
