8 Hours Total
Pre-Requisites: Security Officer I
In this course of instruction the student will learn the following:
- CPR/AED/First Aid – Students will become certified in CPR and the use of the AED (Automatic Electric Defibulator) through the American Heart Association. Additionally, attendees will become familiar with basic first aid and how to react to trauma patients until EMS arrives on the scene.
- Report Writing – This course will teach the student how to write clear, concise, and effective reports. Often overlooked as a secondary responsibility of the security officer, we see proper report writing as an indespensible tool of the trade. As many law enforcement officers often hear, “treat every report as if it will make it to the Supreme Court.” Not only does a well written report reflect positively on the individual officer, it also benefits the employer through improved communications with the client.
- Preservation of Crime Scenes – A thorough overview on the procedures to follow should a security officer encounter a crime scene during their everyday duties. The student will learn the steps they need to take to secure the scene prior to law enforcement arriving on the scene, how to protect physical evidence, and how to properly deal with witnesses.
- Anti-Terrorism – IED/Suspicious package recognition and response
- Testifying in Court – The attendee will learn how to go to court to testify regarding an incident they were involved in and communicate clearly, concisely, and in the manner and fashion expected by the court. Learn the do’s and don’ts of courtroom testimony.
