Decades ago, many states did not have any hiring, screening, or training mandates for sworn police officers. Today, nearly every state has some sort of police officer, armed guard or security officer academy training and hiring regulations. There are almost twice as many security personnel in the United States than there are police officers, so why are there not widely accepted training standards for these personnel? This paper will attempt to explain the differences between Security Guards and Armed Guards and their screening and hiring regulations.

The first floor was for his pharmacy, along with retail shop fronts. The top two floors had apartments for rent with secret hallways and passages to the basement to make the disposal of bodies convenient. Holmes decided to turn his building into the World's Fair Hotel when he found out the Fair site was near him. The building underwent another construction project and he added a kiln in the basement

As a security guard he is required by law to report to the police all serious accidents and crimes, including felonies, occurring within the premises in which he is working. However, fourteen months after his date of employment Blue Mountain created a new company policy requiring the security guards to escort intoxicated persons, including drunk drivers, from the parking lots onto the public road.

Before he could fall to the ground the chauffeur caught his hand and pulled him ungracefully upwards. “I would hope our special guest was a bit more careful with his surroundings, isn’t that right Mr. Cole?”, hinted the maitre d’ as he emerged from behind the hotel doors with a suspicious demeanor.

Honk! The sound of the horn of the taxi pulled Cole out of his strange trance. “Adieu,

After failing the Marriott audit on February 10th the management team at my hotel had a three hour meeting about how to improve our score. Everyone was aware that a Marriott auditor would be coming back anonymously within sixty days. The Bistro part of the audit was the area that failed miserably, so that is where management concentrated almost all of their effort on improving their score. The woman from the Bistro that made a score of zero was allowed to stay on with a warning. The week after the audit she came into work and hour late for two of her shifts and just decided not to show up for another shift. I would like to say that management fired her after she skipped her shift without calling, but no she was given one more chance. The Bistro had a mandatory meeting the next morning and she was going to be allowed to continue working at The Courtyard if she decided to show up. She obviously did not show up for the meeting and finally management decided to let her go. Every person in management had been warned about this woman by almost every member of the front desk staff. They could have saved themselves from failing audit by listening.
