In addition to our Security Training Programs we also offer two security programs:


  • Security Model Manual - This is a complete Security Department Model Manual.  It is modeled after the FBI Model Manual and written to accommodate a Security Department.  It is the same format that was used for the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino Security Department Manual.  It comes on disk so all you have to do is add and delete some basic information so that is fits your Department.


  • Security Briefing Training Program - This program is a series of daily briefings that are read daily out loud to all your officers or each officer can be alloted just a few minutes a day to read them.  These briefings cover every topic you can imagine for a Security Department.  They are short and concise and help refresh your department on important policies and procedures.  It is an inexpensive way to ensure your Department is being updated and refreshed daily of how to perform their jobs.
