All security officers are instructed in proper public relations and their image to the client and/or public. During this time, each officer is tested (written and orally) to ensure retention and competency.

Beyond the mandatory initial training required by the State of South Carolina, American Security offers the opportunity for our officers to improve their professional skills. We have an in-service training program that produces improved job performance, better morale, improves self esteem, reduces turnover and decreases liability exposure. This program helps the officer to develop and maintain positive work habits, which in turn results in a more effective and efficient security officer for the client.

Our in-service program is structured so that topics can be chosen for special emphasis during monthly site training by the supervisor or completed individually by the officer in a self-paced format. Sample topics include legal issues, communications, safety, fire protection, disaster preparedness, affirmative action, and time management. Once the officer begins the course, they receive continuous follow up to ensure successful completion of the course. A certificate is awarded upon successful completion of the material.

Officer Selection

American Security is proud of the aggressive recruiting efforts we take to ensure the availability and quality of personnel for our clients. Our staff is dedicated to seeking new recruiting sources as means for reaching a broader range of candidates. We rely on an established network of contacts within the local and regional markets for officer candidates. Referrals by current clientele, as well as our employee referral bonus program remain the most successful means for recruiting.

Our standard for the quality of our personnel is to provide people that fully meet your expectations and needs. Our product is our employee. We are judged by that standard.

We do not rush to place an employee in a position. Doing so reduces retention, which is costly to us as well as our client. Employees see our commitment to them through direct wages and benefits, recognition through certificates of excellence, and financial rewards through bonuses, gift certificates, and savings bonds. We are the only security company in North Carolina and South Carolina that pays for each returning officer’s state registration fee. Most companies take payroll deductions for this cost.

When you choose American Security for your security service needs, you are receiving the most qualified professionals with the deepest experience, talent and regard for clients available.
