Earning Your Guard Card
If you’re looking to attain additional certification to elevate your career, get the training you need from experienced professionals. At Protective Service Agency, we offer training that allows you to become a licensed security guard with the power to arrest.
With authority comes responsibility. The main reason that training is required prior to becoming licensed is so you fully understand the responsibility you are undertaking and how to use your authority to make those around you safer. The responsibilities of a Guard Card holder are guided by ethics, laws, and roles. You’ll learn legal responsibilities and liabilities in addition to arrestable offenses.
Limitations and Restrictions
To avoid criminal charges and civil liabilities you and your employer should clearly understand the limitations on a security guard’s power to arrest and restrictions on search and seizures. You’ll learn how to support local law enforcement while exercising your own authority.
Communication and Relationships
You’ll learn how to interact with local law enforcement and file reports about your observations and arrests. The importance of establishing positive relationships with local law enforcement agencies cannot be understated.
