In the TASER Course, security guards learn about the "force continuum" where they will be taught to understand the appropriate levels of force that is legal to use when suspected intruders trespass or attempt to trespass in protected areas or when a violent criminal commits an act.
When deadly force may not be necessary, it simply makes sense to have an option between physical strength, which is finite, and a bullet, which is fatal. After all, TASER guns emit electrical charges that only temporarily incapacitate individuals but they incapacitate them. If a suspect is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or in emotional distress, the TASER gun will subdue him or her successfully without causing permanent injury.
Security guards put themselves in the face of danger every shift they work. Though their job description does not require them to make arrests, it does ask that the security guards do everything in their power to keep their post criminal-free. However, training for security guards is rigorous and physical fitness is of utmost importance, sometimes a protective device like the TASER gun is what it takes to keep all parties involved safe.
Use of the Stun Gun or Air Taser will be applied towards your (4) hour elective requirement. The Loss Prevention Group Instructor's are certified by TASER International for Security Training with the X26C TASER.
