Why We Exist

Proguard Security was created to provide a resource to churches seeking to enhance the safety of their staff and church attendees.

Both Captain Chad Abel and Sergeant Tom Weger have achieved successful careers in public safety including serving as Safety Coordinators for a large church in the Indianapolis, Indiana area.

Our team realizes the need for increased safety protocols and measures for all public and private organizations where large groups of individuals congregate. We believe our combined experience of over 50 years in public safety can be used to assist others in reaching their safety goals.
