About Our Armed Security Guard Services
The decision to provide armed, physical, and contract security guard services for your Minnesota facility will be one of the most important and consequential decisions you will ever make. The actions or inactions of security guards on your premises, which are often made in seconds, can impact your organization for years to come.
When making this crucial decision, we encourage you to consider two important issues:
The Company: What training and experience does the company leadership provide? Have they been trained in when and how to use deadly force? Have they been trained in threat assessment, conflict de-escalation techniques, critical thinking, and shoot/don’t shoot situations? Does the company leadership write effective policies designed to keep your employees, guests, vendors, and the public safe? Does the company leadership train and lead security officers to act in ways that will minimize your civil liability?
The Security Officer: What if any law enforcement experience do they have? Have they ever had to deal with difficult, desperate and/or mentally unstable individuals? Have they been trained to resolve difficult situations without the use of force? Are they a trained and knowledgeable professional, capable of keeping my organization safe and secure; or are they young and inexperienced, with their sights set on higher pursuits?
Here at BelCom, Inc. Physical Security Services, we understand your greatest needs and concerns when it comes to securing your facility.
Our firearms and use of force policies have been written with the full knowledge and understanding of case law for public safety employees. Our policies have been drafted to provide all affected parties with the best protection against civil liability. Our training program far exceeds the minimal state requirements. In addition to the minimal state training requirements, our officers receive 32 hours of classroom training, and 8 hours of training on the firing range.
PS Security Services Officers are former law enforcement officers who have had successful careers with several local law enforcement agencies, or they are individuals who have successfully completed a State of Minnesota certified law enforcement program. This means that the security officers we place at your site have either spent many years patrolling the streets and highways in Minnesota or they have passed every requirement to be hired by a Minnesota Law Enforcement Agency. Ninety-five percent of all PS Security Services officers are former law enforcement, the other 5% are future law enforcement officers. These men and women are well trained, with a vast array of experience and wisdom, and are well prepared to keep your organization and people safe.
