Retired Military Officer Jobs

Security Officer Overview

Also referred to as "Security Guards" or "Surveillance Officers," Security Officers conduct surveillance and regular patrols to prevent vandalism, theft, terrorist acts and criminal conduct at various sites. Security Officers may be assigned to a broad range of duties. Common examples are large retail establishments, business office complexes and public facilities. Surveillance Officers typically work in restricted areas with specialized audiovisual devices to conduct continuous remote monitoring of interior locations like department stores or casino gaming floors.

Due to the nature of their job duties, Security Officers often work on-call and irregular hours. Former military officers are ideal candidates for this position, due to strong discipline to remain patient and make important decisions under pressure. Keen observation skills and physical strength are also essential, as security officers must be agile and move quickly to apprehend fleeing or resistant suspects.

Security Officer Education Requirements

A high school diploma is the minimum educational requirement for Security Officers. Some employers prefer associate or bachelor's degrees in related disciplines such as criminal justice or police science. Some Surveillance Officers must also be specially trained or have experience in operating high-tech video equipment. Most jurisdictions require armed security guards to hold concealed weapons or firearm permits.

Security Officer Job Market

According to recent statistics, security and surveillance officer positions are expected to increase by 12 percent through 2022. This figure is approximately equal to the growth rate for all occupations. Career advancement opportunities are also commonly available within this field. Security Officers may be promoted to Security Management or Security Consultancy positions.

Security Officer Average Salary

Recent statistics revealed a median annual salary of $24,020 and hourly wage of $11.55 for Security Officers. Annual salaries for this occupation can range from $16,640 to $38,563.
