  • Dave - Security Bus. Owner. beginner adviser said on January 31, 2012
    the comments by J Meldonado are absolutely truth. I've been in the biz for 34 years. I have my own biz 5 years. If you don't know the field, don't have experience and little education - you are barking up the wrong tree. Everyone thinks all you have to do is get insurance, a license, etc. Not true.. and anything bid over $20.00 is not likely to be excepted. It's a tough field.. just because most workers are hs grads for the big biz.. doesn't work for the small biz guy. You have to offer something more since you'll be coming to the table as an unknown. My best advice.. especially for people who don't understand the legal aspects and liability for lawsuits.. is find another endeavor.. a prime example is people who don't understand why a retail giant doesn't send their personnel out after shoplifters. The professional protection field requires more than just brawn.. it requires training and knowledge, coupled with experience. Additionally, if you can't get the insurance (many won't because they don't have the skills and knowledge) you can't get the license.

  • Graeme said on July 17, 2012
    I am planning to establish my own Security company in SE England where I live. It is difficult to get insurance without having company policies and procedures already in place and without Public Liability and Employer Liability plus various accreditation in place, it is unlikely that you would succeed. Also, a security guards pay rates are about 70% of the hourly rate you invoice your clients.You charge £10 an hour, you pay the guard £6.80 to £7.00 and sometimes a little more per hour.

  • Eric said on August 17, 2012
    I've been an armed guard since 1998 with all permits. Another officer and I are thinking about starting our own security business. We know we need to get the business license and insurance we also know where to obtain those. Our question is after we obtain those do we have to open an office? we know we will need a website since our company is going to be a two man operation. we arent looking at business loans yet cause we feel we dont need it we already have our own patrol cars, uniforms, firearms, and duty gear.

  • Chad said on August 20, 2012
    I have been in the Loss Prevention field for a number of years for a huge corporation and worked for a security company for a number of years.. Before that, my degree is in criminal justice. I wanted to be a police officer but thats not looking too bright due to the economy. I am now looking to start a security company working with myself maybe 1 partner. I have been reading peoples "Reviews" on here and noticed so many people saying its literally almost impossible. Truly its not that hard if you know what you are doing and have any experience. with the right license & insurance as well as a car and passing your local and state exam you will be fine (in the US) good luck! & don't let the prior comments discourage you!

  • Lisa said on July 2, 2013
    Hello I am contacting from Texas. I have done research and honestly if you believe you can just put on a suite and tie, and wave a few signs you will not get a license let alone a contract. Please visit the txdps website for all your security licensing forms and informatives for fees, and etc...I also know that in Texas you must take the PSB exam in Austin and to qualify you must have at least 2yrs verified experience submitted to the texas dept of safety before you can even obtain a license. However my question would be I have 2 yrs security experience and college experience as well but there isn't any management experience on black and white so is there a step I could take to go around this. Would a mangers certificate suffice, is there a short term class or course that would suffice? Also I hope I have helped if you have any questions and regards please send them to my e-mail.
