Professional Security Services in Texas
For private security officers to be able to handle any type of situation they encounter, they must have been trained in numerous areas of security. At Ranger Guard and Investigations, we make it a priority to train all our officers in the latest security methods and techniques. For example, since the threat of terrorist attacks has grown substantially in the United States, all Ranger officers are required to complete training in Anti-Terrorism Tactics. Along with this, they are also trained in such vital areas as First Aid/CPR, Defensive Tactics, Patrolling and Surveillance, Verbal Deescalation Techniques, and Criminal Law.
Only the Best Security Officers
When an applicant seeks employment with Ranger Guard and Investigations, we require they pass a number of tests and background checks before being hired as a security officer. First, they are given a series of aptitude tests, all of which help to determine not only their skills and abilities, but also how they will exercise their judgement in handling various types of situations. Next, we will conduct thorough background checks of all applicants, which include criminal background checks, employment and personal reference checks, and drug tests that screen for far more illegal substances than most standard drug tests. By taking this approach, we can ensure all our clients that when a Ranger private security officer is assigned to them, they will have the best professional protection security services available in Houston and the surrounding area.
Patrols and Surveillance
On most private security assignments, patrols and surveillance play a big part in keeping a facility and those there as safe as possible. Because of this, officers assigned to a client by Ranger Guard and Investigations are trained to conduct patrols in a manner unlike many other security firms. Rather than conducting patrols and surveillance of an area using the same routes and same times each day and night, Ranger officers use various times and routes when conducting foot and vehicle patrols. By doing so, it becomes difficult for anyone to determine when officers will be conducting patrols and surveillance in an area, which often leads to a sharp reduction in such crimes as vandalism and theft.
Armed and Unarmed Guards
Since all security situations vary, it can be difficult for clients to know whether they need armed or unarmed guards at their building or event. Therefore, Ranger Guard and Investigations will not only answer whatever questions clients may have about this, but also conduct a security assessment prior to making a final recommendation to the client. By doing so, we are able to assess various risks, gain a better understanding of the duties that will be involved with the assignment, and consult with clients as to what will be their best option. If after an assessment it is determined armed guards will be needed, Ranger officers are thoroughly trained in all aspects of firearms, and also have the necessary licensing and certifications needed for these assignments.
