Mr. Batiste served four years in the U.S. Air Force as a Security Specialist with assignments stateside and overseas. He also served ten years as a Police Officer/Supervisor with the University of Texas Police Department before resigning and founding Southern Comfort Security (SCS).

Examples of services provided by SCS include the prevention of unauthorized activity or entry, traffic regulation, access control, and fire and theft prevention and detection. These services can be broadly described as the protection of personnel and/or assets.

Other security services provided by SCS involve roving patrol, bodyguard, and guard dog services.
