The Safety Squads business is owned and operated by Jeffrey M. Van Diepen and his son, Logan. Prior to starting the business, Jeff was the founder and President and CEO of the national pest management company: Pestmaster Services.

For over 4 decades, Jeff and his company specialized in federal, state, and local government business. At the time of Jeff exiting the company, in September of 2020, Pestmaster was the #1 Small Business Enterprise (SBE) servicing the federal government in the nation.

Jeff’s experience associated with the Pestmaster venture is now focused on providing services to seniors under the “Safety Squads” brand. Potential relationships within the federal arena include the following agencies:

  • – HUD
  • – Veterans Administration
  • – Medicare
  • – Social Security Administration
  • – FEMA
  • – Others

Our CAGE Code is 9A9E6

We also offer services locally to state and local agencies and groups that are interested in assisting seniors to safely stay at home as they age. The services we provide are outlined in detail on this website.

The company also operates and uses the trademark: Guard Guys® and Safety Cops®, which are trademarks owned by Jeffrey M. Van Diepen.


  • Provide seniors with assistance in making their homes safe
  • Eliminating risky chores that often lead to injuries
  • Providing emergency assistance to seniors in disaster situations
  • Adding safety and security measures to veterans in their homes including improving lighting, eliminating trip hazards, and keeping seniors off ladders
  • “Age In Place Safely” is our goal for seniors

Where is the business located?

The Home Office is in Sparks, NV (Reno area), and services are generated from here. Expansion plans for additional physical locations are in the works. Both company owned units and franchisees are being developed.

(Jeff developed Pestmaster operations in seventeen states and had begun international franchising, prior to his exit. He also had a GSA Contract (GS-06F-0013L) for twenty years, prior to selling the company in 2020.)

He intends to do the same with the Safety Squads expansion.
