SOP Excerpts

"Alcohol and Drug Policy

1-Substance abuse has an adverse impact on an employee’s work, personal and family lives, as well as on the ability of to provide the highest quality of services.  Alcohol and drugs can cause poor performance, decrease productivity and create safety hazards.  Consequently, YOUR COMPANY is committed to establishing and maintaining an alcohol and drug free workplace.

YOUR COMPANY is committed to providing a safe work environment and to fostering the well being and health of its employees.  That commitment is jeopardized when any YOUR COMPANY employee illegally uses drugs or alcohol on the job, comes to work with these substances present in his/her body, or possesses, distributes, or sells drugs in the workplace.  Therefore, YOUR COMPANY has established the following policy:

It’s a violation of company policy for any employee to possess, sell, trade, or offer for sale illegal drugs or otherwise engage in the illegal use of drugs or alcohol on the job.  It is a violation of company policy for anyone to report to work under the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol-that is, with illegal drugs or alcohol in his/her body.  It is a violation of the company policy for anyone to use prescription drugs illegally.  (However, nothing in this policy precludes the appropriate use of legally prescribed medication.)  Violations of this policy are subject to disciplinary action up to and including terminations..."

"Use of Force

Purpose - To establish clear guidelines for YOUR COMPANY security officers regarding the use of force

Security Officers of YOUR COMPANY have traditionally displayed commendable restraint in resorting to the use of physical force.  The irreversible consequences of such force places a responsibility on YOUR COMPANY to establish a policy which:

A.Clearly guides personnel in its application
B.Maximizes the security officers' safety                 
C.Minimizes the possibility of injury to innocent persons
D.Reduces the unnecessary loss of human life to the lowest level consistent with the need for public  safety

Background - There is probably no more serious act that a security officer can engage in than the use of a firearm.  The occasions for such use are, literally, life and death situations which are invariably confusing and complex, affording precious little time for meditation or reflection.  It is imperative then, that the security officer, through training and the absorption of these guidelines, is able to respond quickly, confident that he or she is acting within the limits of YOUR COMPANY policy.  This serves to protect the public from unlawful and unreasonable use of force; at the same time, it enables security officers to act without hesitation, to protect themselves or another person.  Perhaps equally important, it minimizes the second-guessing to which the security officer is subjected when no such guidelines exist.

Security Officers should have a thorough knowledge of Your State Law and should periodically review this body of law.  Security Officers should bear in mind that State Law only authorizes use of physical force/deadly physical force; it does not command its use.  Officers should also be aware that YOUR COMPANY policy is more restrictive than State law in the use of physical force and deadly physical force..."


The SOP template offered by startasecuritycompany.com saved me a lot of hassle and gave me a real good starting point for my company. I strongly recommend their products for anyone interested in starting a security business of their own.
