Robert “Bobby” Young

Robert, a native of Tennessee, grew up watching his father (A.A. Young) conduct investigations as a Special Agent with CSX Railroad Police. Wanting to follow in his footsteps, Robert attended Middle Tennessee State University, graduating with a Bachelors of science in Criminal Justice (Minor in Business) in 2006. After obtaining his degree, Robert joined the Metro Nashville Police Department in 2007.

For more than a decade Robert served in many capacities within the police department, including; patrol division, flex unit, crime suppression units, countywide narcotics, and the Drug Task Force. Determined to arm himself with a wide range of skills, Robert took initiative to gain knowledge and certifications in a variety of areas by attending thousands of hours of training, taught by local, state, & federal authorities. Robert’s professional excellence and dedication to service constitutes significant accomplishments, awards, and accolades throughout his productive career.

Without constant encouragement and support of family and friends especially his sister, Angela Proffitt, who is an amazing wedding and event planner, and his incredible wife, Marquie Young, who is an accomplished attorney, the dream of owning a business would not be possible.

Robert's instincts and natural intuitions coupled with experience, education, professional certifications, community service, and endless resources make him and his firm an excellent choice for private investigations or professional security services throughout Tennessee and beyond.
