If the "diagnosis of your particular circumstances" dictates a security solution that requires an officer to be fully equipped to protect life, then our managers will suggest Armed Officers to be part of your prescribed security solution.

It is important to realize the difference between "armed" and "unarmed" officers. An unarmed officer's responsibility does not include directly protecting life but to observe, report, and to deter. It is an armed officer's responsibility to directly protect life. Our Armed Officer services are second to none in the contractual realm. Our armed officer solutions employ policies and procedures that trains and prepares our armed officers to serve as a type of private police force to our clients. Our armed officers are consistently trained in the following core subjects and principles:


• Respond to life threatening circumstances with the intent to stop the flow of aggression against the lives and well-beings of our clients

• Respond to emergency and non-emergency situations
