40 Hour Enhanced Security Guard
The Enhanced Security Guard Training Program is intended to support and complement the existing security guard training and counter terrorism efforts in New York State by providing training and education designed to improve observation, detection and reporting skills; improve coordination with local police, fire and emergency services; provide and improve skills in working with advanced security technology including surveillance and access control procedures consisting of instruction requiring at least forty hours of training including 3 hours of training devoted to terrorism awareness; and has been certified as a qualified program by the state office of homeland security.
Eighty-five percent of the critical infrastructure in the United States belongs to private enterprise and corporations. Thus, security guards are literally one of the nation’s first groups of defenders and play an integral role in prevention and deterrence efforts. Success in prevention and deterrence of both general crime, and terrorist acts as well, begins with the establishment of a baseline and maintenance of a robust all-hazards and all-crimes management infrastructure.
The professional security guard industry in New York State with an excess of 140,000 certified security guards inhabit that baseline. This program will provide security guards with the basic awareness of terrorism issues that can potentially affect responsibilities within the purview of their employment. It will improve observation, detection and reporting capabilities while enhancing coordination capability with other emergency response professionals. Additionally, this program will elaborate on previously provided instruction, thereby elevating participants’ familiarity with access control issues and security technology.
Topical areas include the following periods of instruction: Information and Intelligence Sharing; Terrorism Indicators and Trends; WMD Standardized Awareness Training; Anti-Surveillance Strategies; Prevention and Physical Security- Vulnerability Assessments; Safety and Security- Emergency Planning; National Incident Management (NIMS) training to include, IS-700 National Incident Management System
First responders at the awareness level are individuals who are likely to witness or discover a hazardous substance release and who have been trained to initiate an emergency response sequence by notifying the proper authorities of the release. They would take no further action beyond notifying the authorities of the release.
