Whose responsiblity is Use of Force Training

Postby tsmguy01 » Sat Mar 30, 2013 8:07 am

The responsibility for Use of Force Training for Security Officers lies with the both the indivudual and the company he/she is employed with. 1. The Security Officer should ask their company if they provide this training and if they do, it would be of their best interest to take the training. If the company does not have the training, the officer should find an outside training facilitator and take the training from them. Secondly it is also also the responsiblity of the Security Company. It should be mandatory for all Security Companies to provide the training and it should be mandatory for all Security Officers to take the training.

What does this have to do with law enforcement? I am sure there are forums dedicated to security guards. Take your comments there.

Any security guard who takes some kind of "training" outside that provided by their employer is leaving themselves open to a huge personal liability. It also indicates that the security guard is probably operating beyond the parameters of their mandate.

Both are not desirable qualities if one ever decides to get into law enforcement. I seriously hope anyone who follows this really really bad advice never applies to become a police officer because you will be bounced very early in the process.

As they should be.
