I agree with the earlier reviews and wish to further elaborate on my experience as a client of this company “Off Duty Officers, ” yet there are no off duty officers / law enforcement working for this company! I recently switched companies after I found out that this Off Duty Officers company terminated former Vice-president of Operations Doug Packwood, Operations Manager Juan Santillana and his son Jack Packwood for NOT billing clients like us for the time the guard we ordered does NOT show up. I have REPEATEDELY caught guards Sleeping IN THE OPEN on my property in Grosvenor Square in Point Loma. I have found out the guards we had were not actually off duty law enforcement, but regular $10 earning security guards. If you do not believe me, ASK some of the guards you hired from this company, if they show up at all. I was appalled to find out this company does NOT even conduct a standard background check on some of employees it hires. Also, note the “armed” guards of this company come from a subsidiary of Off Duty Officers, aka JMJ security, who are also not off duty law enforcement- but are recruited among the regular security guards of this company, security guard supervisors such as Eric Jiminez, admittedly not having ANY law enforcement OR military experience working as an Armed “Off Duty Officer” . Employees of JMJ, aka the Armed wing of Off Duty Officers have to BID on shifts weekly via email and are lucky to even land one 4-hour shift a week. Clients, believing these people are actually OFf Duty Law Enforcement through the deceptive marketing of frauds like Terry DeGelder, the founder of this cop impersonator company, his schedulers like Luis Peinado, and Maegan Teague will try to deceive you into contracting with them and ripping you off at rates of $55-75 an hour. Before contracting, ask them if there are even any off duty cops from San Diego PD, or adjoining towns. I guarantee you won’t find them at all, based ny inquiries on the armed guards I hired onto my sites. Do not be fooled; there are no off duty law enforcement/ cops working for “Off Duty Officers.”
