Officers can use payroll deductions to pay for courses.

Pete served as the Head of Operations for a multi-state private security firm from 1973-1981. Pete was a part of the Virginia Police Revolver Association and was awarded the Governor’s 20 Award in 2003 for excellence in police competitive marksmanship.

The school is conveniently located at the Norfolk Top Guard Headquarters (7400 Granby Street, Suite H, Norfolk VA 23505). Pete Lupica can be reached by phone at 757-705-7784 or by email at
