Armed Security Guard - Minneapolis

Twin City Security has Armed Guards Ready to Protect

Armed Security Guard Minneapolis Do you feel threatened by potential crime or violence? Perhaps your business, or a business in your neighborhood, or industry, was recently the victim of a robbery. Perhaps a fight broke out and employees and clients now feel insecure. It is your job to help everyone feel at ease and ensure their safety. Armed guards do a lot to diminish the risk of crime and other threatening situations. Our Twin City Security (TCS-Minneapolis) guards, who carry weapons, are part of our most elite and advanced officer team. They are licensed, bonded, and insured to carry arms as part of their professional duties.

Our armed guards must prove themselves in difficult settings before they get the privilege to train as an Advanced Officer. Their training includes more than just weapon handling. They learn communications methods for lessening hostile situations and non-fatal ways to stop an attack.

Get Informed about your Risk Level

While unarmed security guards can handle the majority of security issues, armed guards are best for places and events where people are prone to irrational or violent behavior. We use crime statistics, along with our extensive local knowledge, to make recommendations about when getting armed guards is appropriate.
