Training Makes the Difference

guard_badgeOn a typical day you might drive to work and park your car. After the workday, it’s a quick stop at the grocery store on the way home, then another quick errand to the mall before heading home. That evening, you and your family go to a game at the local ballpark.

What do all the places you go have in common? They could very well be part of the “invisible empire” whose “invisible soldiers” guard your safety and well being throughout your daily life. You don’t really notice them. Private security officers have outnumbered public law enforcement officers for a number of years now,

but you seldom think of them until you need help.

Your parking garage at work, your office building or other worksite, the grocery store, the mall parking lot, the ballpark and maybe even your neighborhood are being kept safe by private security. When an incident occurs, odds are that a security officer will be the first responder, arriving long before police officers or firefighters can get there.

Because security officers are such a strong presence in our everyday lives, ensuring they have received quality, recognized training to handle all types of emergencies is critical to ensuring the safety of people and property. When you hire a private security company, it is essential that you make sure the officers are well trained. Training can mean the difference between life and death. It ensures the safety and well-being of the officer, the public, the employer and the client.

Training is an ongoing process at Pro Security Group to ensure our officers always retain their competency. In addition to site-specific training, our officers are trained in:

  • Report writing
  • First Aid & CPR
  • Customer service
  • Law enforcement relations
  • Conflict resolution
  • Emergency management & control
  • Effective patrol techniques
  • Access control
  • Security officer duties
  • Effective communication
  • Crime prevention
  • Fire safety
  • Self defense
