A Career of experience

After leaving the Army in 1985 Dave Skala began to enter the security field while living in Fresno California. It was soon discovered by his employers that he had a talent for the roles he was placed in, especially when dealing with hostile and angry people as well as high stress situations. That being said, Dave began to handle most of the worst locations the company covered and began his career path.

For several years Dave gained a lot of experience in property security, handling lower end hotels and the issues they typically get. In 1989 Dave moved to oregon where he began his Loss Prevention / Store detective career, began employment as a Reserve Deputy with the Deschutes County Sheriffs office while also gaining his Armed Private Investigators license working as a surveillance and LP consultant for M&R Investigations. During the next decade Dave would begin private Secured Juvenile Transports and at risk youth facility management for Guardian Angel Youth Services, GLC2 for the Oregon Youth Challenge Program Missing Persons and opening a few armed Private Security companies in Central Oregon (South County Patrol and MAGNUM Enforcement Corp) which handled County wide patrols, site security management of Malls and major city events to include the Sisters Rodeo. Magnum Enforcement also handled security functions for the Albertsons, Safeway, Food 4 Less and Shopping cart stores during this time specializing in Asset Recovery and surveillance installations and employee investigations. Dave also chaired on the Oregon DPSST committee to establish regulations and certifications for Private Security firms and individuals.

Eventually Dave rejoined the Loss Prevention field and worked for Target, Fred Meyer, Food 4 Less, KMart, Walmart, Shopko and others and acted as a liaison consultant handling interactions between local police and private security retail investigators. Dave excels at creating out of the box solutions for his clients, establishing policies and procedures is what he is known for. It is pretty typical that Dave will recover at least two times of what his fees or wages incur. This is value to the table for you, the client!
