ASIS Private Security Officer Selection and Training Guideline Open for Second Public Comment Period

Alexandria, Va. 2008-11-06
The ASIS Commission on Standards and Guidelines is soliciting a second round of comments on suggested revisions to the Private Security Officer Selection and Training Guideline through a 45-day public review and comment period. The comment deadline is Dec. 20, 2008.
 
The PSO Selection and Training Guideline was first published in 2004. All ASIS Guidelines are re-evaluated every three years, with the possibility of revision, if warranted. ASIS International is the preeminent society for security management professionals.
 
To review the guideline and provide input, go to the Standards and Guidelines section of the ASIS Web site at www.asisonline.org. The PSO Selection and Training Guideline may be downloaded, free of charge.
 
The PSO Selection and Training Guideline, written for both proprietary and contract security, is not intended to cover all aspects of selection and training criteria for private security officers.  It is intended to set forth minimum criteria that regulating bodies and companies in the United States can use to assist in recommending legislation and policies for the selection and training of private security officers. The guideline also includes definitions of terms and references and bibliography.
