Field Supervisor 

Management handpicks field supervisors because they are the keys to customer satisfaction and employee competence. Field supervisors are veteran security guards who are the first point of contact to fulfill the needs of customers and security personnel.

Field supervisors perform on-site training for security personnel; updates them on changes in duties and conducts performance evaluations based on unannounced inspections. This constant site monitoring benefits everyone, especially you.

Security Officer Training 

Training programs for security guards should be constantly updated to reflect societal changes and still provide you with adequate protection. As with law enforcement, security guards must walk a fine line that separates your protection and human rights. We live in a litigious society and the slightest error in judgment or procedure could result in asset loss or client and security company liability. Profiling, illegal search-and-seizure and stricter interpretations of civil rights issues are a few of the newest additions to the gauntlet of legal concerns that private security companies must address with their training programs.

Blackstone is committed to providing professional training programs that keep our security guards current on Arizona’s legal, social and cultural issues that many companies based outside the state take for granted. Our security guards recognize that it is critical to execute their responsibilities in a professional manner with confidence and pride. Thorough training will mitigate the occurrences of everything from petty theft to terrorist activities.
