Who We Are

Legion's culture embraces the concept of the warrior’s purpose being one of service. Our Core Values are the exemplification of such a culture and the fundamental purpose behind our organization, to serve. In our modern age of disposable technology, we have found a place for such age-old wisdom that we believe holds true to this day and is needed now more than ever.

Through the training and continued development of our team we strive to instill these seven Core Values in every member of our team:

  • Courage
  • Integrity
  • Benevolence
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Honor
  • Loyalty

Legion Corporation was formed in 2012 by former San Francisco Police Officer Joseph Shelley. Mr. Shelley developed Legion based on his experience serving the people of San Francisco as a valued member of the San Francisco Police Department. After over a decade of experience working within the city, Mr. Shelley took that expertise into the private sector to deliver an organization whose primary mission is one of service.

Forged from these many years of experience, Legion has quickly become an iconic leader in the local security industry, and a forerunner in the development of the industry’s first privately operated police style patrol force.
