David S. Boone - President/CEO
Pentagon Protective and Investigative Services Inc.
David S. Boone has been an active executive protection agent and private investigator since his retirement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department due to an on duty shooting in December of 1995. After leaving law enforcement, David began his private sector work as an investigator working surveillance and covert operations cases for a private investigation company based in Ventura. He quickly moved up to Operations Manager after a few short months.
David found that his true desire was protection work and began working as an Executive Protection agent. David was assigned to Interscope Records in Los Angeles where he was one of 4 agents assigned to CEO Jimmy Iovine and his executive staff. David was quickly recruited by a record company owner that was working with Interscope Records and hired as the Head of Security. David was in charge of a 5 man detail which covered the CEO's office, home and travel on a 24 hour basis. The Record Company had several acts and tour security was also handled for a few acts.
David was recruited a year later by IPSA International, an international Executive Protection and Investigation corporation that included clients as Ebay, Microsoft, Toyota Motor Sales, Tickets.com and several other fortune 500 companies. David was assigned the southern California region and handled several executive protection details as well as numerous corporate investigations which included terrorist threats, theft and fraud.
David resigned from IPSA International after a little over 2 years after the parent company was sold and the management structure changed. David was immediately recruited and hired by Toyota Motor Sales USA corporate headquarters in Torrance, CA. David was hired as the Executive Protection Manager as well as the corporate campus Manager of Investigations. David was in charge of executive protection of the President of Toyota Motor Sales USA as well as 3 key executives including their homes, travel and office. David was also in charge of the executive protection of Japanese executives when they would come to the United States until their departure back to Japan. David handled numerous executive protection details both domestically and internationally during his employment.
David also formed Pentagon Protective and Investigative Services Inc. This was David’s own company which he incorporated in April of 2000. Due to David’s extensive executive protection background and resources, he was able to manage this corporation using detail agents trained and hired by him in the past on past operations. His bodyguard networking also paid off by having an abundant source of skilled executive protection agents from law enforcement departments including the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, LAPD, Secret Service and the Secretary of State Diplomatic Security Services to name a few. After having such a successful year with Pentagon, David decided to leave Toyota Motor Sales USA in 2001 to run Pentagon Protective and Investigative Services Inc full time.
For the last 15 years, David has been involved with several executive protection details for celebrity and corporate executive clients. David was also one of the first private sector executive protection agents to be recruited and given federal protection powers by the Secretary of State Diplomatic Security Service. David was issued a “Secret” clearance by the US State Department and was assigned to the executive protection detail of the Turkish Consul General who was based in Los Angeles. David remained on the detail for one year and then accepted another assignment.
David has had an extensive background in not only Protective Services but also the choreography skills and coordination for large events. David has been sub-contracted to work several high level security events including the Golden Globe Awards, Academy Awards, Emmys and the Grammy Awards just to name a few. He also handled the personal protection of Reba McEntire during her television show “Reba” which ran from 2001 – 2007. David was also assigned the protection for the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson during a brief visit in Los Angeles in 2007.
