Ohio Security Guards

Think of a security guard as a watchman. Guards are not trained to confront criminals. Their sole responsibility is to observe and report criminal or suspicious activity while reporting back to a higher authority.

Why RSS Investigation & Security of Ohio?

One major issue the private security industry is faced with is the lack of requirements for their personnel. For this reason RSS officers go above and beyond State of Ohio requirements so that we stand out above the competition.

We are currently offering our clients the following security officer services:

  • Armed Security Officers
  • Patrol Officers (Random / Dedicated)
  • Personal Protection Officers (Bodyguards)
  • Corporate Security Services
  • Apartment Security Services
  • Condominium Security Services
  • HOA Security Patrol and Alarm Response
  • Special Events Security
  • Healthcare Facilities
  • Private Property
  • Parties
  • Conventions
  • Executive Protection
  • Temporary Security
  • Manufacturing Plants
  • Colleges
  • Municipal Buildings
  • Construction Sites

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.
