Factors to Consider Before Hiring Arizona Security Guard Services

If you are planning to hire security guard services in Arizona, it is very important to take your time and find the right company with which to work. Be sure to consider the following factors before you agree to work with a security company providing guard services:

State License

Security companies are legally required to have a license from the Arizona DPS Licensing Unit. Before you agree to hire an agency, you should definitely ask them if they have the proper licensing so you can be sure that they are a reputable company.

Security Guard License

Security guards working for the company must also have licenses from the state. If a guard does not have a license, he is not legally allowed to identify himself as a security guard. Further licensing is needed for armed guards. You should make sure an agency only hires licensed guards before you agree to work with them so you can get the security services that you need.

Uniforms and Vehicles

Security guard agencies are not allowed to issue uniforms or use vehicles that closely resemble known Arizona law enforcement uniforms or vehicles. You should ask if the company abides by these rules to make sure they are operating a safe and effective security business.


The State of Arizona also requires that security guards receive certain training before they can obtain their license. Talk to an agency about their training standards to make sure they use the appropriate training methods to deliver reliable and responsible security guards for all of your needs.
