In The Beginning  ​

In 2005 Mr. Leonard began teaching Concealed Carry classes which progressed into other firearms classes. His experience in Law Enforcement and Federal Security gave him a unique perspective and experience to share with others. Mr. Leonard unfortunately passed away unexpectedly in February 2022, but shall forever be in our hearts and minds.


In 2013 opportunity came to start BHi Security and Mr. Leonard left the Federal Security work and with a former Foreign Customs Agent, his wife Uka, begin BHi Security and quickly acquired some Local and State Government contracts, followed shortly with several exclusive resort properties. 


As Time Passed

All agreed the two most neglected areas in security are training and employee selection. These are the areas which are far better focused on than many other security companies ever attempt.


In 2015 Preston T. Winters also came onboard and later became the Regional Manager and PPSB Instructor. Preston is a combat veteran of the United States Air Force. Post 9/11 he was cross-trained to augment Air Force Security Police and EST (Emergency Services Team). There he was tasked with Base Security and Military Police duties along with Emergency Response to a variety of incidents.  He has also worked with various military personnel across the country on the Tactical Air Combat Training Systems and support units. Mr Winters took over CEO and duties of Chief Security Officer with Mr Leonard's passing.

In 2018 James Casey Blakley exited the Army after a year long deployment. His experience as an Army MP has been valuable to BHi.

To Date

All of our managers and supervisors bring to BHi   experience in Military Law Enforcement and/or Military  Security. Bhi has always been and will always be a Military friendly employer. 

BHi has recently acquired an outdoor shooting range for employee qualifications, recertification, and advanced training. The range also accommodates training for NC Concealed Carry Classes among other firearm classes available to the public.

All of us here at  BHi  take 

        security very seriously.
