Security Guards

Private Security Officer Articles

Security guards and private security officers vastly outnumber police officers worldwide. The role of the private security officer has never been more critical today with the constant threat of domestic terrorism. Security guards and private security officers are in a highly visible profession and are often placed in position of trusts. In many cases, they are the only watchful eye on a commercial property after-hours and we rely on their integrity and judgment.

Security officers face many of the same risks as police, but in most cases the level of income, benefits, and in-service training is far less. Every year we see a move toward greater government regulation for minimum standards for hiring, screening, and training of security officers. The security guard industry has improved in recent years, but still face challenges largely due to low pay, poor training, and high turnover.

I have written a few articles to discuss some of the issues involving security guards in various settings:
