Security Guard Services in Houston
In many situations where a security presence is needed, unarmed officers are the best option. Trained in various community policing techniques as well as Ranger’s unique Enforcement Through Reinforcement program, our unarmed security personnel’s goal is to be very approachable to employees, residents, and others on the premises. Utilizing both foot and vehicle patrols, our officers are skilled not only at varying their patrols so as not to establish a recognizable pattern, but also in using verbal tactics to defuse potentially violent situations.
While unarmed security guards work well in many environments, some situations call for guards to be armed while on duty. As a top security guard service provider in Houston, we at Ranger ensure all of our guards are able to handle any situation they may encounter. Along with hiring officers who have years of previous experience in all levels of law enforcement as well as United States military operations, we also train our guards in many of today’s most important facets of security. These include 10-hour training classes in Anti-Terrorism Tactics, as well as 24-hour training classes in Patrol Techniques, Criminal Law, and Defensive Tactics. And to ensure they can help those who may be injured on the scene of an incident, our officers are also certified in First Aid and CPR, and can coordinate activities with local emergency service personnel if necessary.
Meeting State Qualifications
While it’s very important to have well-trained security personnel on each assignment, it’s just as important to ensure each officer is certified, licensed, and insured so that they meet state qualifications. To accomplish this, we use a number of techniques. As one of the most recognizable temp agencies for security guards in Houston, we realize our guards have a reputation to maintain. Because of this, all officer candidates undergo a variety of aptitude tests to make sure they have the basic skills and personality needed to succeed. In addition to this, we also conduct extensive background checks, and use drug testing procedures which are far more accurate and precise than most other drug testing used in the private security industry.
When providing security guard services Houston clients expect to not only have guards on duty at their facilities, but also experienced and knowledgeable supervisors who are available 24/7. By having access to supervisors who are able to take charge of a situation, our clients know they will have the best possible security available at their site.

From patrolling a luxury apartment complex to handling crowd control and bag searches at large concerts or sporting events, our guards are fully capable of taking control of the toughest situations while helping everyone stay calm.
