Security Guard Overview


Security Guards keep customers and employees safe at businesses, malls and events. Private Security Guards usually occupy one of two positions: static guards, who remain on watch in a single location, or mobile guards, who patrol the grounds and make sure no one is in an unauthorized area. Security Guards are called when someone makes threats, shoplifts or otherwise causes trouble. While some guards have the power of arrest, others detain lawbreakers until the local police arrive. Similar security jobs include positions such as armed security guards.

Security Guard Educational Requirements


To find work as a Security Guard, at least a high school diploma or GED is required. Positions in high-class facilities, such as casinos, often require at least a bachelor's degree. There are Security Guard training programs available from certain technical schools, which usually work to cover the minimum of state certification requirements. Often, an employer will train new guards in the job specifics, patrol routes and reporting techniques. The length of training will largely depend on if a guard is going to be armed or unarmed.

Security Guard Job Market


Demand for Security Guards is high as the world is growing more security conscious; consumers want to feel safe while shopping, and businesses want to ensure the goods they offer will be sold, not stolen. Many locations will hire temporary Security Guards as the holidays approach to compensate for the higher number of shoppers at that time. Some of these temporary positions become long-term. At least 1,074,000 Security Guards are currently employed with another 294,000 openings. This number is expected to grow by 12 percent in the next 10 years.

Security Guard Salary


Security Guards make an average of $24,000 per year. Beginning or temporary guards might expect to make around $17,000 while guards with years of experience or those who work at higher-class institutions can expect to see upwards of $42,500 annually. Private Security Guards hired by individuals have the opportunity to make significantly more money than those working for major corporations.
