Every April, the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) observes National Minority Health Month to highlight the importance of improving the health of racial and ethnic minorities and reducing health disparities. 

Newport News, Virginia, March 28, 2022, Samuel Griffin III is the founder of the leading Virginia-Based Leumas Security Services. The business began in 1996 as Griffin’s Executive Protection Agency, handling security for Presidential Candidates, Heads of State, and A-List Celebrities. It grew into a fully staffed protection company handling a variety of security services and consultations for Fortune 500 companies, special events, shopping malls, the hospitality industry, and many others.

The Leumas Security team has more than 60 years of combined experience in executive protection, as well as securing homes, office buildings, a variety of businesses, housing complexes, stores, restaurants, and more. Their business is built on a foundation of professional experience, training, family, and a recognized calling to protect others.

Their security team members are licensed and certified by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services. State and federal background checks are conducted on each guard to ensure that they have quality personnel, and their guards are available to travel overseas as needed.

Channeling his business acumen and professional expertise, Griffin wrote “Rent-A-Cop Reboot: A Security Pro’s Lessons That Could Save Your Career, Your Butt, and Even Your Life, with Theresa M. Caldwell, in October 2020, for industry enthusiasts as well as anyone remotely considering the profession. How timely indeed as people are trying to comeback from the ravages to the economy caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic. A blueprint for success in the security profession.

During a recent interview, Samuel made these comments, “As an African American man, I should have known better than to downplay the pain in my stomach. but working through the pain is done by almost every Black person I know. Now I tell people to stop that. Get your check-ups and take advantage of every opportunity to protect your health. To me, that includes getting the COVID vaccine and the booster.”

He went on to say, “I’ve been in private security for almost 30 years. Nothing keeps you more secure than good health. So, for National Minority Health Month, I’m telling every Person of Color I can, especially Black men, that good health is good security. Eating right and working out aren’t enough to keep you healthy. Yes, you have to see a health care professional regularly. And sometimes you have to insist that they listen to your complaints. Trust me. You do NOT want to go through what I went through with cancer to get clear about the connection between health and security.”
