Types of Security Officers

International Guard Services provides several types of security officers performing various tasks.  Your choice is to use either (Unarmed) Non-Commissioned Security, (Armed) Commissioned Security and Off-Duty Police Officers.  Your unique needs and threat level will dictate which type of security officer you will need.  We handle high threat level posts that require ex-military personnel and law enforcement officers with tactical firearm, sniper and hand to hand combat training to low threat level posts where the officer simply documents the comings and goings of employees and visitors.   All of IGS’s employees have the state mandated required training but we take it a step further by investing in additional training such as OC Spray, Baton, Hand Cuff, Tactical Firearms and Hand to Hand Combat Training is just a few examples.

Call 281-822-6700 for a proposal or to discuss which type of security officer is best for your needs. You can also request a proposal online.


Commissioned Officer (Armed Guard)

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 wells as weapon safety. IGS also practices a drug free work environment.

Non-Commissioned Officer (Unarmed Guard)

Non-Commissioned Officers must complete the Private Security Bureau’s most current Level II Training Course. To ensure the highest level of security our security officers are trained to meet the client’s specific needs. Each Non-Commissioned Officer must pass an extensive interview process and background investigation. IGS also practices a drug free work environment.

Off Duty Police Officer (Police Officers or Off Duty Services)

Police officers carry a commission with various agencies such as the City Police Department, Metropolitan Police Department, Sheriff’s Office, Constables Office and the Department of Public Safety (State Police).
