Meet the Expert

Glen Garrity is a retired 21 year police detective and owner of G2 Safeguards.  G2 Safeguards educates people about various safety topics to help prevent or reduce the risk of being a victim. 

In 2008, Glen was part of a group of Newport Beach Detectives that investigated an identity theft ring.  The theft ring used fake identifications and stolen credit cards to purchase expensive products at an exclusive mall.  It is estimated they fraudulently bought over $1.1 million in products and resold them on eBay.  The case was eventually solved when store employees were trained to recognize a fake identification.  When the next fraudulent purchase was attempted, the suspect was detained.  Investigation led to the search of a car, a house and a business. Eight people were arrested and counterfeiting property was recovered.

Due to the success of this 2008 case, Glen started G2 Safeguards in 2010, to educate others how to protect themselves.  Over the past eight years, Glen has taught thousands of people in various industries (i.e. hotels, property owners, mortgage, escrow, casinos, healthcare, notaries) how to recognize a fake ID. 

Glen continues to do security work and along with his speaking seminars. He lives in Orange County with his wife and has two college graduate daughters.
