Kodiak Security Services prides itself on being one of the few security agencies in the Inland Northwest that can provide highly trained, armed security officers.
Our armed security officers are required to go through a minimum of 40+ hours of training before they can receive their certification as an armed officers. For example, they spend on average a total of 10 hours with the FATS (Firearms Training System) machine, 10+ hours working on holster work/mechanics of a weapon, and another 20+ hours of the range itself with a qualified instructor.
WHAT IS AN ARMED OFFICER?
An armed security officer is similar to a standing guard, but is licensed by the State of Washington to carry a firearm while on duty. They are required to go through a re-qualification every year to ensure their continued capability of handling a firearm, especially since they are in view of the public.
Examples of armed officers used on location include:
- ATM Response
- Executive Protection
- Prisoner Transport / Watch
- Union Strikes
- Mobile Patrol
- Asset Protection / Property Loss
- And many more…
