When you think of the State of Colorado, do you picture snow boards and snow covered mountains? If you do, you’ve probably seen too many movies! We Coloradans don’t wear our parkas year ‘round, you know. Plus the topography of the State includes deserts, foothills, canyons, plains, valleys and large urban centers – not just mountains. Visitors come to Colorado summer and winter to enjoy the beauty of the State – including four National Parks – and the many outdoor activities available. No matter your reason for coming here, there are fun things to do and also many opportunities available, especially for unarmed security guards.

The Mile High City, Denver, is both the capitol of the State and the largest city. You should have no trouble finding interesting things to do in Denver or interesting places to work. Like many big cities, security personnel are needed in office buildings, museums, shopping areas and malls, movie theaters, hospitals and clinics, parking garages and more. If you have an interest in meeting people from all over the world, look at opportunities in and around the Denver International Airport – the fourth busiest airport in the United States. Tourists visiting Denver might also show up at the Denver Zoo, Coors Brewery or the Denver Mint.

Denver residents are fortunate to have so many great sports teams. The Rockies baseball team plays at Coors Field. You’ll find the Broncos at Sports Authority Field. The Pepsi Center is home to both the Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche hockey team. Those aren’t the only opportunities to see sports in Denver. There’s also a major league soccer team and two professional lacrosse teams. This doesn’t even include NCAA level sports based at the University of Denver. With this variety of teams, there’s sports action – and security opportunities – year ‘round in Denver.

Minimum Requirements

It’s important to note that becoming an unarmed security guard in Colorado takes a few more steps than in other states, but don’t be concerned. This is not a bad thing. Although you are required to be licensed by the State, getting the license is not difficult, just annoying. Once you have that license you are in the driver’s seat. Colorado is one of the top states for business in the United States and has a very low unemployment rate – just over five percent!

Must be at least 18 years old
High school diploma, G.E.D or equivalent certificate

Fees Schedule

The Federal Government has a big presence in Denver – all over the State actually. The U.S. Geological Survey, the Denver Federal Center, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and Buckley Air Force Base are all located in the Mile High City. In Colorado Springs you’ll find the Air Force Academy, NORAD and Peterson Air Force Base. The federal Supermax prison is located near Canon City, while the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and NOAA can be found in Golden. Of course these are all federal facilities, but besides that they don’t seem to have very much in common with each other at all. Looks like a big variety of security opportunities for an interested party!

If you’re not certain about these choices here are some other big name organizations around the State. Waterpik and Otterbox (manufacturer of rugged cell phone cases) are located in Fort Collins. The Sports Authority has its headquarters in Englewood. The Hain Celestial Group, (maker of Celestial Seasonings natural teas) can be found in Boulder. In cities throughout Colorado, Wells Fargo, FedEx, WalMart, Home Depot and Costco are also big employers. If you are looking for a beautiful place to live and work with plenty of interesting, diverse opportunities, you should definitely consider Colorado and a position as an unarmed security guard.
