People are the most important part of a successful security program. Hiring and screening is a highly structured program capable of achieving your goals. Our competitive wage rates help us attract and retain highly motivated and dedicated personnel.
Some of our recruiting methods are quite innovative and work very well. We have access to the California Department of Consumer Affairs’ Division of Licensing and can view the listing of all licensed officers. We can check the status of an individual’s standing with the state. In addition to this method, we contact qualified security training schools for candidates and possible placement of their graduates.
The individuals from these sources are well trained and have made a personal commitment to the private security field. Additionally, we maintain a relationship with law enforcement administrators at local colleges with police science curriculum. Guards pulled from these pools have proven to be exemplary employees.
Our turnover ratio is one of the lowest in the security industry. We pay our personnel more than most security companies and provide paid, professional training. We demand more from our officers, and we provide a stable work environment with the potential for additional training and advancement within our company.
We provide professional looking Uniforms and top quality, state-of-the-art equipment to our personnel. AGS provides a full range of Performance Specific Training as a requirement for employment along with periodic refresher training for the most up-to-date security recommendations.
