About Magen Am
Magen Am USA inc (Hebrew for “Nation’s Shield”), is a licensed security organization whose mission statement is “To Train and Empower the community to Secure itself from within.” We are licensed through the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) as a Private Patrol Operator (PPO #120715).
Our training program covers sections on Security Theory including: psychology and physiology of combat stress, “Left of Bang”, body language, verbal judo, deescalation, types of violence, security screening and questioning, vulnerability assessments/target hardening. We also dedicate a large amount of time towards the Legal Use of Force including: force continuum, less-lethal, combative, firearms, etc. Our firearms training is conducted at the California Tactical Academy. Our course structure has been vetted by members of Law Enforcement and retired Military (Both US and Israeli intelligence and Special Forces). As we are regulated by the BSIS, we also require our volunteers to go through the State mandated training and acquire a Security Guard Licence and an Exposed Firearm Permit.
