Security Guards

Security guards have a widely varied set of duties and mandates. Some of them are armed, some are not, some are a visible public presence, acting as a physical deterrent, and some sit behind monitors and watch video camera surveillance. Regardless of this vast range, all security guards have the same basic responsibilities: to protect property and customers in a public or private space. Many security guards are retired law-enforcement officers, while others have experience in loss prevention or criminology. A keen eye, professional attitude, and quick response time are the keys to success in this position. Security guards need to be able to scan a situation without being distracted, recognize and respond appropriately to threats and maintain an efficient, capable air.

All security guards must have a high school diploma or equivalent. Those hired as armed guards have usually completed college-level coursework and receive additional training. All guards need to be capable communicators and quick thinkers, and they need to know whether to respond with force or verbal interaction when conflict arises.
