Unarmed Security Guard Jobs

Unarmed Security Guard Jobs Overview


Unarmed Security Guards are responsible for guarding and patrolling areas in which violent crime is rare. They prevent unauthorized access to stores, sporting events or restricted areas. Security guards often have the duty to:
  • Respond to fires and medical emergencies.
  • Monitor security systems and scanners.
  • Protect properties and patrons from theft, vandalism and violence.
  • Patrol properties or guarding gate entrances.
  • File incident reports.


Because Unarmed Security Guards need to be able to deter people from entering unauthorized areas and do not have access to weapons, they must maintain a strong, confident appearance. Many will interact with customers and members of the public, so Unarmed Security Guards are often required to possess good customer service skills.

Unarmed Security Guard Education and Requirements


An Unarmed Security Guard typically needs to possess a high school diploma or the equivalent in order to obtain employment. They also generally need to be able to pass a background check and undergo criminal history investigations as well. Some companies may require guards to show proof of a clean driving record. Most positions will involve on-the-job training rather than require formal training or certification from an outside program.

Unarmed Security Guard Job Outlook


Statistics suggest that employment for security guards is set to grow about 12 percent over the next decade. This is slightly higher than the job market average, which is 11 percent. As more businesses and agencies require increased security, jobs will open for qualified candidates to protect property and material goods. Other unarmed positions included Private Security jobs.

Unarmed Security Guard Job Salaries


Statistics show that the median annual salary for security guards was just over $24,000 in 2012. Salaries for security guards vary by industry; local government agencies, for instance, pay their security officers around $31,590 a year while bars pay an average annual salary of $24,630.
