    Chief Clifford D. Powell was born on 31 May, 1957 at Wright Patterson Air Force Base to Jessie and Kathleen Powell. Cliff spent the majority of his adolescent years in foster care. While in foster care, Cliff vowed to himself that he would make a difference in the world; some how, some way.


On his 18th Birthday, Cliff enlisted in the United States Army and achieved great success throughout his military career. Some of his notables duties are with the United Nations Security Area in Pan Mun Jom, South Korea; Drill Sergeant Duty and serving as Aide de Camp to the Commanding General, RCPAC, St Louis, MO.

    After retiring from the Army in 1984, Cliff joined the ranks of the Richland County Sheriffs Department, where he worked until he was offered a Law Enforcement Position at Savannah River Site.


Cliff spent the next 18 years in this position until he retired, yet again from public service.

    In 2015, Cliff started Powell Asset Protection Agency with the intention of offering great paying job opportunities to our countries veterans, while serving and protecting the community. Powell Asset Protection Agency started as a one-man business, guarding Zales in the Aiken Mall. It has expanded greatly since that time and now protects several high risk communities, special events, offers top-tier Law Enforcement, Self Defense and Weapons training.
