Why hire armed security officers?

It is important to be ready to deter crime and be safe doing so.  Armed security guards are your front-line protection to your property and/or people on that property. Extensive studies have shown that seeing guards armed with pistols conveys a silent warning to potential criminal activity. Furthermore, psychological studies have shown that when an armed guard is present, the public feels a deep sense of safety, knowing that it is of the ultimate priority.


Hiring an Armed security through International Guard Services, guarantees the utmost deterrent of potential threat to you or your property. Our armed officers are experienced, bound for duty, responsible and managed by a choice team of professionals trained in a similar manner.

We believe that thorough training and preparedness are the keys to preparing out guards for any circumstances that may arise on the job. For this reason, a Commissioned Officer must complete a 30-Hour training program and be awarded a certificate of completion from the board approved security officer training school. Before being hired by IGS, the new hire must pass an extensive interview process that includes an in-depth background investigation and show proficiency with his weapon of choice as well as weapon safety. IGS also practices a drug-free work environment.

When deciding the best type of security for your business, it is important to assess your level of risk. For businesses at a higher risk for criminal activity, armed security is most likely the way to go.  Because armed security guards usually carry a firearm and have been through intensive training to carry a lethal weapon, they are more prepared for high-risk situations.
