4 Reasons Why Our Guards are the Best in the Industry 

Security guards are often your first defense against a security threat. Their training provides them with the knowledge and skills to be alert and identify suspicious behavior and thoroughly patrol the premises to keep your property safe. In addition to impeccable training and real-world experience, guards from Off Duty Officers have skills that enhance their effectiveness every time they begin their shifts.

Excellent Communication Skills

While you may think of security as a solitary role, the truth is that that security guards must be excellent communicators. They will work with you, your employees, customers, law enforcement and many others while they are performing their jobs.

The ability to communicate effectively in both verbal communications and written reports will ensure that information is clear and proper action can be taken. Security guards frequently communicate with people from all walks of life, from high-level executives to bad actors who are attempting to commit a crime. In all of these situations, guards must understand how to best communicate with them to achieve the proper goal.


When you are putting the safety and security of people and property in the hands of another person, you want to feel certain that they are honest and reliable. Security guards often have access to sensitive information and areas of your property that are restricted.

It is critical that security guards take pride in their work and have a level of integrity that impels them to act with honesty and with your best interest in mind at all times. This also includes showing up prepared, on time and ready to perform the duties assigned to them.

Clear and Quick Thinking 

In a perfect world, security threats would be non-existent. However, we know this is not the case. Security guards play an important role in protecting properties from the unique threats they face. All the training in the world won't matter if the person protecting your property becomes frazzled, frustrated or irrational in the face of a threat.

Security threats happen quickly and can escalate in a blink of the eye. Guards from Off Duty Officers respond calmly and quickly assess the situation to identify the correct action. Rather than overreacting to a situation, they are able to remain level-headed to help deescalate a situation. 


When you work as a security guard, no two days are alike. Guards are faced with a variety of situations every day that require them to think, evaluate and act. Problem solving skills are critical if you are to be an effective security guard. You must have the ability to pay attention to detail and think on your feet with the information that is in front of you.
