Meet Samuel Griffin, III

Founder, Leumas Security Services LLC 

When most people think of the film The Bodyguard, they think of the late Whitney Houston’s sweet and soaring voice singing “I Will Always Love You.”


Not Samuel Griffin III. To him, The Bodyguard is the film that changed his life. He was only a child when he saw it, living under an abusive father’s rule. After that film, he carried a BB gun while accompanying his grandmother on her grocery shopping trips. It was no childish fantasy about wielding power. It was an early but deep understanding of the power of protection. No one has to be a victim. No one has to go it alone.


Today, with more than 20 years of security experience, Griffin, along with his wife Imani Harris-Griffin, owns and operates Leumas Security Services, LLC. Based in Yorktown, Virginia, Leumas Security Services is a full-service protection and investigation company. Founded in 1996 as Griffin’s Executive Protection Agency, the company changed its name in 2010 to better reflect our years of expansion.


The company now boasts more than 60 years of combined security and investigative service experience.


While attending the College of William & Mary and working in parking enforcement, Samuel Griffin III was asked to join the security team assembled for the visit of actor, author, and educator Bill Cosby.


As part of William & Mary’s security force, Griffin learned the ropes while ensuring the safety of dignitaries such as England’s Prince Charles and the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, as well as the Reverend Al Sharpton.


Rev. Sharpton and his chief of security, Carl Redding, would later connect Griffin to Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr. Within days of becoming responsible for Rev. Jackson, Griffin found himself crisscrossing the nation on a five-day tour in the middle of January.


He had prepared for one day and did not have an appropriate coat. In the middle of that tour, Griffin had to respond to death threats against Rev. Jackson, beginning his relationships with Secret Service agents and police offers who gave him invaluable
training and information.


That training has provided excellent service from Griffin and the Leumas Security Services team for a varied list of clients, including:
