Security Guard & Officer Legal Requirements In Wisconsin

Here on SecurityGuardTraining.io we want to provide you with all of the information you need to successfully become an Unarmed security guard in the state of Wisconsin!

Wisconsin. The land of dairy cows, cheese, and the occasionally rowdy football fan. It's a quiet state whose Yankee roots and European heritage can be seen and felt in every corner of the state. According to the latest Department of Justice figures, the number of property crimes reported in Wisconsin has remained flat for some time now. For a security guard, it's a relatively easy place to work where your greatest concern is likely to be whether your coffee will stay warm throughout those cold winter evenings.

The state's economy is moving forward, albeit at a slower pace than expected. Like the European immigrants who made the state their home, residents continue to keep their noses to the grindstone, knowing that their hard work and dedication will pay off in the end. And, while companies aren't hiring at the pace they are in other states, they are not laying people off, either. In fact, one of the hallmarks of businesses in the state is considerable loyalty to their employees.

The number of jobs available for trained security guards holding a private security permit is solid. Whether you want to protect a warehouse full of cheese (they make nearly 2.5 billions pounds of the stuff every year), or make sure that no one sneaks off with a case of Miller in Milwaukee, you'll have plenty of opportunities. Of course, if you enjoy hanging around a younger crowd, there are a considerable number of jobs available at the University of Wisconsin, Kalamazooo College, or Marquette.

Now, if you prefer things to be a little more laid back than college life (yeah, it is possible), then take a look at the state's growing healthcare and travel sector. Wisconsin is building nursing homes in anticipation of the baby boomer retirement boom that's just over the horizon. Further, popular resorts such as Blue Harbor and the Grand Geneva are always busy and are expected to get even busier. That means both sectors will need more security guards to keep residents and guests safe and happy.

Still not convinced? Maybe you need a bit more action and excitement in your life? Maybe the thought of guarding fermented cows milk or ushering tipsy college students back to dorms from winning football games doesn't sound appealing? Well, keep reading because while it's known as a boring state, plenty of excitement can be found if you want to look for it.

For starters, you can try the banks. Wisconsin has a solid banking sector and they're always on the lookout for the next Bonnie and Clyde to come cruising through the state. Or, you could find a position at Hydrite Chemical where they are making everything from paints and adhesives, to paper products and biofuels. They're eager to protect their property, and their secrets from prying eyes in the ever competitive world of chemical engineering.

There are also a considerable number of private security gigs that you might be interested in. From sports stars to television celebrities, and CEO's to politicians, there are a lot of individuals in the state looking to hire qualified security guards to keep people off their property. You'll find these jobs centered around the major population centers of Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Madison. These are highly competitive jobs and the individuals who hire private security are going to want to see solid references, solid training, and it wouldn't hurt if your name was Rocko and you looked like you could bench press a Chevy. To land a job with these clients, you most definitely have to be able to look the part and play the part.

One of the best places to start looking for a position in Wisconsin is through AlliedBarton Security Services. Their company is very popular with clients throughout the state and hardly a day goes by when they don't postings open and ready for qualified security guards to fill. An established company, they've carefully cultivated relationships with some of Wisconsin's largest companies which means that once you get in there will be opportunities for advancement throughout their network.
