Providing Equipment & Personnel Solutions For All Your Security Needs

We are frequently asked if there is a distinction between Security Guards and Security Officers. Assuredly there is a large distinction between the two. You should think of a security guard as more of a watchman. Security guards tend to be minimally trained. Their only job is to observe and report. They watch over the situation and report back to a higher authority. They lack the training needed to confront criminals and to handle the security situation. They are most likely unarmed as well.

Security officers on the other hand are highly trained and have the skills to handle most any security breech. Depending upon the security officer's contract he may be armed or unarmed. If armed, he has extensive handgun training and is licensed by the State of Ohio to carry the firearm on the security job. The majority of our officers are all trained as Armed Security Officers.

Our Security Officers are a dedicated force of officers with law enforcement or military experience licensed by the State of Ohio, trained to provide our clients with the security they desire. Whether you need a security officer on an individual basis, for your company or community, our Security Officers will work diligently to assure that you receive the best security service available. RSS Investigation & Security provides a range of security officer services including unarmed, armed and personal protection officers and patrol service both random and dedicated throughout the state.

One major issue the private security industry is faced with today is the lack of requirements for its personnel. We understand that there are many other organizations out there that have the same license we do, but they certainly do not have the same officers that we have. Since we are also certified by the Ohio Peace Officer's Training Academy as a Private Security school we utilize our own; Commander, Instructors, Armorers, and Paramedics to make sure that each of our officers have an unparalleled level of training and performance.
