Employee Handbook for Security Business
(editable - ms word)

Why are policies so important for a security business?

Did you know that without an Employee Handbook, or a Standard Operating Procedures Manual, “past practice” becomes policy as a matter of law?  Imagine yourself as a security business owner defending yourself in court on a negligence lawsuit, because your security officer, who walked your client’s employees to their vehicles every night for the last two years, called in sick and one of those employees got mugged in the parking lot? Although your company was hired to protect the client’s property and act as a deterrent to theft, etc… your security officer unknowingly bound you into a personal protection contract with the client’s employees by walking them to their cars every night.

Here’s what is inside of the Security Business Employee Handbook:

  • General Information
