OUR MISSION

TEP Services strives to arm the civilians, and professional security and Law Enforcement Officers the tools needed to ensure the survival of themselves, their family, friends, and those they are sworn to protect in the US and abroad. Our focus is aimed at offering high-quality, moderately priced survival training, no matter the age, gender or profession, and professional security services for personal and high-value asset protection. The ending goal is to ensure every student will leave each session with more knowledge and confidence than before, and create an environment where our clients feel protected to conduct business and trust their property is secure.
