  • HONEST: Honesty is measurable based on background/criminal history. An dishonest guard can put you, the customer, at risk. That is why background/criminal checks and PSIRA certifications are so important.
  • PHYSICAL FITNESS: Fit guards perform their roles optimally. Also, good physical fitness leads to mental alertness. The officer also has to look good; security is at the forefront of your business’s personal relations and so your guards need to be well-presented, courteous, professional and display a positive attitude at all times.
  • GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS: Good security guards know how to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing. Difficult situations can be handled more effectively with concise and courteous communication. Most importantly, incidents need to be documented accurately. Characteristics of a good Security Officer
