Professional Conduct of A Security Guard/Proprietary Private Security Officer

The ability of the security guard/proprietary private security officers to fulfill their duties is dependent upon securing and maintaining public respect and approval, which includes obtaining the public’s willingness to cooperate in the task of preventing crime. The extent to which the community’s respect and trust can be secured is diminished when a security guard/proprietary private security officer acts in an unprofessional or unlawful manner. The personal conduct of a security guard/proprietary private security officer is always under a microscope. You must be constantly mindful of your obligations to serve your employer efficiently and effectively. The degree to which the community will cooperate with you is dependent upon its respect for, and confidence in you.

REMEMBER: The general public sometimes thinks of security guard/proprietary private security officers as police officers, due to the fact that their uniforms are not readily identifiable from a distance. As such, the security guard/proprietary private security officer should maintain his/her appearance and demeanor to the highest level.
