Armed Security Officers vs Security Guards

In many situations, a Uniformed Security Officer is enough of a visible deterrent against potential violence. However, as the threat or potential for violence increases, Armed Security Officers can add an additional level of security protection. MPS Security Armed Security Officers are trained, screened, and licensed in all applicable firearms training required by state and local regulations.

An armed security officer is a place of severe responsibility. While an armed security officer isn’t a law enforcement officer or at least not an active law enforcement officer, they have comparable abilities and duties at a more restricted function.

Carrying a firearm is a weighty responsibility. Not only does it come with the potential danger of misusing the weapon, but it also means that the individual may need to use it in a life-or-death situation. To ensure that firearms are used safely and responsibly, it is essential that those who carry them receive comprehensive training. MPS Security guards’ training includes how to properly handle, care for, and when to use their firearms. Individuals carrying firearms should also be aware of the legal implications of using force and should only resort to using their weapons as a last resort. By understanding the weight of their responsibility, our officers carrying firearms will ensure that they are used safely and effectively.
