The City of Menifee selected The 9th Shield as its May Business Spotlight. The private security and investigative agency was founded by Menifee resident Justin Metoyer.

The 9th Shield offers a variety of services, including skip tracing and asset searches, investigations, locating of people and possessions, K9 narcotic and explosive detection, active shooter prevention, security guards, and executive armed protection.

Metoyer served for 17 years in multiple city police departments and the Regional Transportation District (RTD). He found a passion for protecting and serving others just like his father and dedicated himself to private security and investigations as well as volunteering with first responders. Metoyer honors his father by using his badge number, 9, in the company’s name.

Metoyer is an active Menifee Police Department volunteer and assists the police department in creating neighborhood watch teams, patrolling local schools, providing services to the senior community, and relieving officers from completed incidents so they can attend to more pressing matters. His brother was a fire engineer for Station 76.

“The 9th Shield has undoubtedly provided an additional shield of surveillance and protection to Menifee that is felt by residents and visitors alike,” Mayor Pro Tem Bob Karwin said. “Thank you for extending your protective strength to Menifee and always going above the call of business.”

The City of Menifee Business Spotlight is a free business recognition program to create awareness for the variety of local businesses and their contributions to the Menifee community. Chosen applicants, who are nominated by the community, are honored during a special presentation at a city council meeting and receive a free 30-second professional video developed by the Economic Development Department showcased on the city’s business website.
