About Us

Founded in March of 2011, T.A.P.S. of KC Inc. was created by Mr. Charles S. Bell. The Agency was formed with a simple mission statement, “to honor, to serve, and to protect” wherever and with whom ever calls them to duty. This personal call to action pays tribute in constructing an elite Private Enforcement Agency built on a solid foundation of honor, service, and protection. T.A.P.S of KC Inc. has successfully branched into a fully functioning privately funded Agency that serves as an acting Private Enforcement detail providing many services and duties that are found within (3) three main divisions; (P.E.U.)-Private Enforcement Unit, (C.O.P.)-Community Outreach Programs, and (M.E.P.)-Motorcade Escort Protection.


Private Enforcement Unit

Our trained and commissioned TAPSKC Private Officers perform a variety of duties according to our motto; to “honor, serve and protect” in a multi-jurisdictional capacity.

Our Agency specializes in an array of private enforcement functions that promote general public safety and provides our clients with a visual and active deterrent to criminal behavior and/or criminal activities.

Private Officers are required to have past military or law enforcement training or extensive private security enforcement experience. Our TAPSKC Private Officers are required to maintain current certifications that are comparable to; (NLETC) the National Law Enforcement Training Center, CPR and general First Aid certifications.

Private Property Enforcement is simply our Private Officer’s enforcing your individual, company or organizations; rules, regulations, sanctions and/or stipulations. Our Agency has had the absolute pleasure to provide our “Private Property Enforcement” services to; event spaces, elementary schools, night-clubs, department stores, retail establishments, shopping complex’s / centers and various charitable organizations. We are delighted to engage in conversation as we serve, within the community, on your property, at your school, during your charitable event, and/or throughout the evening into the morning hours. Our Agency is personally invested in a commitment to protect you, your assets, personal/commercial property and all patrons from any criminal activity and personal harm. In the unfortunate event that our presence fails to deter criminal activity our Private Officers are prepared to act accordingly to protect and preserve human life.

Our TAPSKC Private Officer’s are authorized to use the force deemed necessary injunction with their training, in order to protect themselves, their fellow Officers, and the public. Much like our competitor’s and/or any law enforcement agencies, our Private Enforcement Agency is also unable to make or promise any guarantees related to total prevention of criminal behavior and/or activities. Our TAPS Private Officers use the force necessary and appropriate to promote general compliance and public peace.
