Matt Hendren was raised on a 400 acre farm in Northwest Wisconsin. Hard work and good values were installed at a young age. In 1988 he entered a two-year technical college in pursuit of his Police Science Degree. A nationwide search was posted for an Undercover Police Officer Candidate that would infiltrate drug trafficking in a local high school setting that could expand throughout the State of New Mexico. Matt was hired and trained for this position from 1989-1990.

Matt graduated with his two-year associate degree for Police Science in 1991. Before his graduation date he was offered a position with a Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit as an Undercover Narcotics Officer. He took the position after his graduation. Matt still holds the record of 52 arrests in just eight months that covered the jurisdiction of four counties.

Matt has had uniformed and plain-clothes (loss prevention) security contracts with numerous locations for Walgreens, Mc Donalds Corporation and Roundys (Pick-n-Save) grocery stores throughout the Milwaukee area. Surrounding areas included: West Milwaukee, Oak Creek, West Bend, West Allis, Wauwatosa and more.

Currently, Matt is establishing security services in the La Crosse area and the surrounding areas. Most recently, he has provided uniformed security services to the La Crosse Builders Association Show, in Onalaska, WI, at the Omni Center in 2021.
