We Are Security Guard Educators

November 16, 2014

Welcome to Security Training Center® News! This newsletter is part of our continuing education program, offered free to our students. Twice each month subscribers receive links to relevant and interesting articles pertaining to the private security industry. Every article will have some educational value, be it changes in security best practices, case studies with lessons to be learned, or success stories. Security Training Center's goal is to make our students the best-informed and most current security officers in the industry.

DUTY TIP:  Once called to respond to an incident, the security guard should proceed swiftly and safely to the scene. The officer should be careful not to break any laws or put others in danger while traveling.
