About Us

Michael and Deserée Kenney

My name is Michael A. Kenney, the company’s founder, and I have over 38 years of experience in professional law enforcement and private security.  My wife Deserée has over 15 years of experience supervising adult offenders and parolees in community corrections settings as well as the security & private investigative industry.  


I am a licensed Private Detective, licensed Security Agency owner as well as a New Jersey State Police Certified (S.O.R.A.) Instructor who enjoys teaching individuals that need re-certification or the initial certification training for those looking to get into the security field.

Additionally, we are both certified instructors for:

  • C.O.B.R.A Self-Defense Systems (Child, Teen & Adult Programs)

  • The SABRE Civilian Safety Awareness & College Safety Training Programs

  • The Sheepdog Church Safety & Security Training Program.

  • Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events


The Kenney Protective Agency is a client-based company whereas we ONLY take on what we can handle. A client is subject to see my wife or me working the job allowing us to stay in touch with what’s going on in the field.


Our Agency delivers outstanding customer service, customized investigative & security solutions, at reasonably affordable prices. Our “clients for life” philosophy helps ensure each and every client remains satisfied at every level of service and desires to maintain an ongoing relationship with Kenney Protective Agency.
