Chapter 2

Security Officer Code of Conduct

Abstract

The reputation of private security officers is somewhat tarnished by media using humorous renderings in movies, commercials, and television. This chapter attempts to raise the level of professionalism by setting forth standards for appearance, performance, and education. Security today has barely evolved from the time of “night watchmen”, from which the security profession developed. Standards for performance, appearance, demeanor, and achievement are discussed. An officer code of conduct is posted, applicable to anyone serving in a security position.
