Unarmed Security Officers
Unarmed Security Officers
When many people think of security officers, they often assume they are always armed with a gun. In many security situations where unarmed security guards can be the best option. In the vast majority of situations requiring private security guards, an unarmed security officer is able to keep an area safe and secure. From a residential facility such as an apartment complex to a sporting event where crowd control is the main priority, unarmed officers are able to maintain high levels of safety. In other situations armed officers can be intimidating to a crowd and ruin the atmosphere of your event.
Because of this, more and more clients request unarmed officers to protect their buildings, employees, and residents than ever before. Ranger Guard & Investigations understands unarmed guards are a smart option for many clients. That’s why we make it a top priority to hire the best people and train them in effective security procedures.
Training and Certification
Quality matters. All of our guards are certified, licensed, and insured to meet state qualifications. Because we know how important hiring only the best and most qualified applicants is to our clients safety, we go far beyond other security firms in our hiring and screening process. We use a combination of aptitude tests, strict drug testing and background checks, to make sure those we are sending to protect our clients’ safety are the best guards in the industry. Because there are so many types of security threats in today’s world, modern private security officers need to be prepared to handle a variety of situations. Ranger Guard and Investigations uses state-of-the-art training methods to ensure all officers are able to handle various situations with professionalism and good judgement. We ensure they undergo a variety of training classes before starting their first assignment. For example, since terrorist attacks are a concern in today’s United States, all guards must undergo and pass a 10-hour Anti-Terrorism class. Guards also must take and pass 24 hours of training in both Defensive Tactics and Patrol Techniques and Criminal Law. Other areas all officers are trained in include First Aid/CPR, Anti-Terrorism Security Procedures, Evacuation Methods, Patrolling and Surveillance, and Crowd and Access Control. And finally, all guards are thoroughly trained in Customer Service, which we feel is ultimately what determines the success of our company.
By having guards who realize the importance of keeping clients satisfied, an assignment can be completed to everyone’s satisfaction.
Combining our excellent customer service with high levels of security responses, Ranger Guard & Investigations always has the needs of our clients first and foremost in our minds. As a result, we are able to maintain professional standards that far surpass any other company in the industry. Rather than following the lead of many other security companies and hiring anyone who walks through their door and submits an application, we choose instead to have only guards who are well-trained, present a professional appearance and demeanor, and commit to protecting the property and people to which they are assigned.
To accomplish this, we hire many U.S. Army veterans, letting them put their skills and discipline to work protecting their fellow citizens.
Unarmed Security Officer Responsibilities
Our security guard services are tailored to your needs. That’s why we offer a free security assessment consultation at the beginning of working with each client, to assess your needs. At sporting events, concerts, festivals, and other types of special events, an unarmed guard stationed at various spots or on patrol can prove to be a very effective deterrent against illegal activity or other threatening behaviour. Those on duty will have specialized training in crowd control, bag searches, patrols, and surveillance, in addition to any other appropriate specific training. Even though there may be thousands of people attending an event, unarmed security guards can nevertheless prove very effective in spotting potential problems, providing basic first aid and CPR if needed, and assisting law enforcement officers and other first responders in the event of an emergency. In specific cases K-9 agents with highly trained handlers can be extremely useful for crowd control and deterrence.

This gives clients unparalleled access and peace of mind. By giving our clients this reassurance, we are able to maintain our reputation within the private security industry as a firm that makes the safety and welfare of our clients our number one priority.
Most importantly Ranger Guard makes sure its officers are the best in the industry. To accomplish this, we place a high priority on experience, and actively work with local law enforcement and veterans to recruit applicants with years of experience in law enforcement and military operations. In doing so, we can assure clients our officers will have not only the most up-to-date security training offered today, but will also have already demonstrated levels of experience and sound judgement when dealing with high-stress situations.
