Before his impactful roles at ProSource Performance Products, Xenadrine, and Supreme Protein, Conklin served as a dedicated police officer in Toms River, NJ. His law enforcement career, which began at the tender age of 19, saw him actively involved in the Emergency Services Unit as the esteemed "Ram Man," showcasing his commitment to public safety and security.

Motivated by the increasing incidents of violence in public spaces across the country, Conklin felt a strong pull towards his roots in law enforcement. This led to the establishment of Superior Protection Professionals, an initiative that initially started as a side project but has quickly evolved into a full-fledged operation under the encouragement of Bob Chinery, ProSource's CEO and Conklin's long-standing best friend. Chinery's support was instrumental in Conklin's decision to dedicate more time to growing his security company, assured that ProSource's competent team would continue to excel in his absence.
