School Security / Safety
Career Diploma

The use of private security, and private or special police personnel to patrol educational facilities including elementary and high schools and post-secondary colleges and universities is not a new practice but it is a growing segment of the security industry and requires additional specific training for all officers assigned to a school or campus of any type. While most states do offer a basic required training course for registered security officers, only a few provide advanced level or campus security officer training even though providing security services in this environment is much more challenging and different than most other security clients.

This is why we have designed a very intense, structured and in depth training for campus officers.


In this sixteen week program, we will discuss and train on the following topics including:

  • Role and Responsibility of School Security Officer
  • Access Control
  • Use of Technology
  • Juvenile Crimes
  • Mediation / Conflict Resolution
  • Disasters and Emergencies
  • Dynamics of Student Behavior
  • Student Drug Use
  • Sex Crimes
  • Arrest Authority
  • Search Authority
  • Active Shooter
  • Control Techniques
  • Use of Force
  • Criminal / Civil Laws
  • Court Testimony
