Get your certification before this October and be prepared for upcoming changes!
There is currently legislation up for vote in the Connecticut State legislature that will enhance existing law from 2008 to make certification requirements for security officers much stricter than they are today. We believe that this legislation will pass; we welcome the new regulations, since they will add critical training requirements.
What this means in practical terms is that security guards – or security officers, which is our preferred term – will see a great improvement in terms of their professionalism, training and readiness. These new guidelines will turn security from a job into a licensed profession.
This profession is increasingly more lucrative:
- Security officer pay has improved approximately 20% in the last 10 years
- 48 out of 50 states have certified training
- 47 of them have higher standards than CT, the new law brings us into line with national standards
The new certification is a necessary step to make sure Connecticut’s private security is in reliable hands.
