Black-Owned Security Business in Detroit is Thriving by Protecting People

“We’re all about security. Everything that involves security, everything that involves protecting people, we’re all about it,” said Daniel Claxton, owner of the Detroit Bodyguard Protection Unit.

Protecting people is what the Detroit Bodyguard Protection Unit on West 8 Mile Road is all about.

“We have about 130 employees, security officers. We work all around the State of Michigan,” said Claxton.

The company is in the security business with a twist.

“We like to focus on high profiles, a lot of celebrities, a lot of athletes, politicians,” said Claxton.

Claxton was born and raised on the east side of Detroit. He said the idea started with him working security for other companies. Then in 2018 he decided to become his own boss.
