Employment Outlook

Employment opportunities exist for those students seeking employment as unarmed security officers, armed security officers, guards, and private investigators. According to Hallcrest II, there are four (4) individuals employed in the private security industry for each public employed law enforcement officer in the United States.

Successful completion of the private security courses (armed security officer, unarmed security officer, private investigator, and firearms training) will meet state-mandated training requirements for registration in each respective area with DCJS, thus making the student eligible for employment in these respective areas.
