Security Officer Training

Training programs for security guards should be constantly updated to reflect societal changes and still provide you with adequate protection. As with law enforcement, security guards must walk a fine line that separates your protection and human rights. We live in a litigious society and the slightest error in judgment or procedure could result in asset loss or client and security company liability. Profiling, illegal search-and-seizure and stricter interpretations of civil rights issues are a few of the newest additions to the gauntlet of legal concerns that private security companies must address with their training programs.

Securaguard  is committed to providing professional training programs that keep our security guards current on Arizona’s legal, social and cultural issues that many companies based outside the state take for granted. Our security guards recognize that it is critical to execute their responsibilities in a professional manner with confidence and pride. Thorough training will mitigate the occurrences of everything from petty theft to terrorist activities.

With this in mind, Blackstone’s training curriculum revolves around these training objectives:

On-site responsibilities to include building client relationships, public relations, respect and knowledge of the chain of command;
Proper knowledge of on-site emergency procedures;
Proper acknowledgement of on-site authorities such as security directors and property managers;
Proper response to crisis situations or events;
Recognize supervisory authority;
Minimum of eight (8) hours of on-site training and eight (8) hours of classroom training. Securaguard  provides and pays for classes that include seminars, lectures and videos for each security guard during the training process.
