What Our Clients and Officers Have To Say

  • "On behalf of Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation, I wish to extend our thanks and appreciation to Law Enforcement Specialists for the security provided for our Walk 4 Sight AZ event Saturday evening, March 31st, 2007. We were concerned about the security of the cash the Walk 4 Sight AZ event raised.

    However, the professionalism, courtesy and presence of the officer you sent eliminated all the concerns. Thanks for being part of the success we had and we look forward to having your services in all future events."

    Donna Rowe
    Executive Director

  • LES is the best thing that's ever happened to our family. LES is very reliable and conscientious about the needs of officers. I've been employed by (LES) for 8 years and never had a problem. LES is very conscientious about troup welfare. They makes sure you get everything you need for a job. They come out and check to see if more officers are needed for the job. When we're out in 115 degree weather, they bring us food and water. They are all about troup welfare. If I ever had a concern about a job and brought it to their attention, They resolved it right away. LES gives us plenty of work and is reliable in paying on time. Always the leader of off-duty companies, as far as paying.
    Lt. K. Angel

  • I just wanted to say Thank you for wishing me a Happy Birthday and second for the 2008 calendar/planning guide. It's little things like that that make LES great.
