Qualities to look for in a security guard

Security guards play a very important role in society.  They make sure that people, places, and things are safe.  If there is an incident, they transmit the details and without those details, it would be difficult for the police to do its job.

Professional training

It is essential that before entrusting someone with your safety, they are tested to prove that they completed proper security guard training and took certified courses.  Of course, there are many other qualifications and skills obtained in training.

Good physical condition

Make sure they are in good physical condition, and can run a few miles should a burglar decide to escape!

Communication

They may have to speak to visitors or handle matters their boss isn’t around to handle. Make sure they are well spoken, at least in two languages and maybe a rumour of the third.

 
Acquainted with first aid

It is compulsory that they know how to help when someone gets hurt.   Security guards should know CPR (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation) and other first aid skills.

Trust

With everyone sound asleep at night, a security guard can do almost anything. It’s imperative to test the security guard for trust issues before he becomes the enemy instead of the one protecting you from the enemy.
