Types of Employment

Do I have to be a Licensed Security Guard to get a job?


You do not have to have a Security Guard Card issued by the BSIS to work for Praetorian. You will not be hired or work shifts as a Guard. You will be placed in roles at events that do not require a guard to fill the post and you will not be allowed to identify yourself or act as "Security". Once you become employed you may want to consider obtaining your guard cars so you have more opportunities to work.




What is the difference between a "Security Guard" and "Event Staff"?


A person with the designation "Event Staff" is a person who can be hired to fill positions that a licensed guard is not required to be in. These positions are not plentiful and it is highly encouraged that you begin the process to obtain a guard card once hired if you want a bump in pay and more hours. A Security Guard has gone through the process of obtaining a License through the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS). This means they have: 1. Attended and passed the Powers of Arrest/WMD/Terrorist Awareness class. 2. Submited an application to the BSIS. 3. Had a background checked through LiveScan fingerprinting service. Once you have completed these steps, and the BSIS has issued you your Guard Card, you need to take another 16 hours of classes within 30 days, and another 16 hours within 6 months. Praetorian Protective Services can provide all the education you need to obtain, maintain, and excel as a Security Guard.
