in fact you will find that most companies are unwilling to contract companies for G posts if they dont have enough guards over the age of 40 because other than Brinks and Loomis most G posts are staffed by older more experienced guards that are often times one of 2 things. retired PD or retired military.
If you need the money and you say no to the job because of no weapon i have to ask. is it really safety saying no or ego ,especially since you mention a badge and dont understand that observe and report is the main duty of all security
the reason i don't want to take a gaurd job and not be able to carry is way back when i was around 19 i worked the night shift at a convienece store. one day the boss called me up to come in so he could talk i went to the store and he asked if i had stolen any money i told him no. well he insisted that i took 2 hundren bucks i insisted i didn't take it . so he fired me and let his brother take the spot. i was supose to work that night but got fired man was pissed. the next morning my brother n law who worked at the other store across town came flying over to my house and banged on the door when i opened the door he asked what the hell was i doing there and if i was there who worked the night shift last night ? he then told me that he heard the guy who worked the night shift last night got blown away and when i say blown away they acually blew his head off. two guys and a girl walked into the store in the early morning hours and put the 12 guage sawed off shotgun to his head and pulled the trigger the guy who found him said his head was gone .they also found 2 hundred bucks hidden behind the counter (some employee hid it) that way they could all pass a lie detector if asked to take one(yea i was setup from the inside to be fired) i was never so happy to get fired in my life. now the company that wants me to be a guard has an employment ratio of about 1u.s employee for every 5 imported worker they have them housed in trailers and they live on the property the company is edison chuest they own north american ship yard thier boat colors are orange and tan huge company. it's just to risky to spend a night walking around a shipyard with that many people running around and not carry protection. hell most can't speak english so do you think they will stop if told to stop????
as for as the badge thing do you think a badge will stop someone from doing you harm??no thats why cops get shot every year if i'm gonna have a stupid badge on my shirt i am gonna **** well have something on my side to enforece it or protect myself. has nuthing to do with ego but everything to do with being smart enough to not put myself in a dumb situation without protection.
as for as training all i have done is go to a ccw class .
