Security guards are meant to safeguard the place and the individuals present there. But are they trained enough to protect the public? Does their training provide a safeguard against the dangers posed by active shooters?
According to Guardian offence, Security Guards are the first set of eyes, and likely the first responders to an emergency at schools, businesses and public areas. Simply because they look the part in their uniform does not mean they are properly trained to protect you or your clients during an incident. When properly trained, they provide a sense of security to their clients and public. According to Gazette News, a security guard in a Denver school was able to take swift action as a first responder and prevent a mass shooting in 2019.
A security guard needs to be vigilant, critical thinker, honest and should possess exceptional communication capabilities.
