Traditional Security Officers:

Screening and Selection

The sceening and selection of qualified security personnel is a responsibility which The Wackenhut Corporation takes very seriously. Through extensive testing and screening, individuals are selected who demonstrate intelligence, interest and motivation. Security Officers will undergo a background screening process; must demonstrate a basic skill in reading, writing and speaking the English language; and must successfully pass a series of job-related tests.

Wackenhut demands those standards of alertness, helpful and positive attitudes, courtesy, tact, integrity, and exemplary conduct which will reflect credit upon the individual, his/her uniform, our Company and the client. Wackenhut's basic background screening includes employment verification, neighborhood and reference checks, criminal records checks, and education and military service histories.

Security Guard Training

Wackenhut Security Officers are trained in a wide range of general subjects, as well as the site-specific security requirements of each assignment. State mandated training requirements are met where applicable, however, all security personnel receive at least the following basic training program:

•* Professionalism and General Responsibilities
   of Security Officers
•* Legal Authority and Its Limitations
•* Search and Seizure Laws
•* Field Note-Taking
•* Report Writing
•* Fire Protection and Suppression
Supervisors conduct on-the-job training and regularly scheduled refresher training to ensure the continued competency of each Security Officer.


Upgraded Security Officers:

Tailoring a security program to meet its customers' needs has been a hallmark of The Wackenhut Corporation since its founding in 1954.

Wackenhut established the Custom Protection Officer service in 1989 to provide a quality security force to those clients whose expectations substantially exceeded that of any commercial guard service. The Custom Protection Officer Division seeks out and recruits men and women with criminal justice degrees, or background and experience in law enforcement and/or elite military units. They are subjected to a rigorous background check prior to employment and given training that goes well beyond industry standards.

Due to the success of this program, and the desire of some clients to combine Custom Protection Officer personnel with a better quality traditional security officer at less critical posts due to financial considerations, Wackenhut established the Upgraded Security Officer (USO) service.

Upgraded Security Officer Program

Considered the “cream of the crop” from the traditional labor market, Upgraded Security Officer personnel are in fact, the same caliber as Custom Protection Officer personnel, absent the law enforcement, military police or criminal justice degree.

USO Qualifications

Upgraded Security Officers represent the best and the brightest of the traditional labor market for security personnel. Their appearance and demeanor parallel Custom Protection Officer personnel. To qualify as a USO, applicants must meet the following minimum requirements:

•* High School graduate
•* Meaningful employment record
•* Good communication and writing skills.
 
USO Background Check

Wackenhut’s background check for Upgraded Security Officers is the same that is used for our Custom Protection Officer(TM) personnel. The background check consists of the following elements:

•* Past employment verification
•* Reference check
•* Motor vehicle check
•* Credit check
•* Criminal records check
•* Drug test
•* Psychological evaluation
•* Physical exam
 
USO Training

Upgraded Security Officer personnel receive the same training as Custom Protection Officer(TM) personnel, excluding the firearms requirements. Their training consists of the following:

•* 40 hours of classroom instruction
•* 8 to 40 hours of site specific
•* 16 hours of annual in-service
•* CPR Certification, where applicable


Custom Protection Officers

A Tradition of Excellence

If there is a secret to Wackenhut's success at major government sites, it is the care taken to screen and select the best possible candidates for each position. Since its inception, The Wackenhut Corporation has provided the most highly qualified Security Officers available in the private sector to major government installations with important defense or related responsibilities.

The Custom Protection Officer Division

Building upon its background and success, The Wackenhut Corporation was well positioned to offer the same quality security force to those clients whose expectations substantially exceed that of any commercial guard service. The Custom Protection Officer Division, established in 1988, seeks out and recruits men and women with criminal justice degrees, or background and experience in law enforcement and/or elite military units. They are subjected to a rigorous background check prior to employment and given training that goes well beyond industry standards.

The result: The Custom Protection Officer - carefully selected, smartly attired and well trained.

The Elite of the Security Industry

The higher quality of security performance by our Custom Protection Officer personnel begins with strict standards in the hiring and selection process. As applicants, CPOs are held to higher qualification standards than upgraded and traditional Security Officers. All CPOs must successfully meet the following qualifications, which exceed industry standards:

•* Former Police Officer
•* Police Academy Trained
•* Former Military
•* Former Military Police
•* Former Elite Forces - Military
•* Former Federal Agency Officer
•* Former Correctional Officer
•* Criminal Justice Degree
•* Combination or equivalent of above
Through extensive testing and screening, persons are selected who demonstrate intelligence, interest and motivation. Of particular importance are individuals who can operate under stressful situations and communicate well.

After determining that an applicant is tentatively qualified for employment, Wackenhut then conducts a background investigation which includes the following:

•* Past employment verification
•* Reference check
•* Motor vehicle check
•* Credit check
•* Criminal records check
•* Drug test
•* Psychological evaluation
•* Physical exam
Wackenhut demands those standards of alertness, helpful and positive attitudes, courtesy, tact, integrity, and exemplary conduct which will reflect credit upon the individual, his/her uniform, our Company and the client.

Custom Protection Officer Training

Wackenhut Custom Protection Officer Division - This elite corps of uniformed security officers was begun in 1988 to address highly critical or complex facilities or situations requiring the highest degree of reliability in the assigned security personnel. Such places include government buildings, banks, locations with highly valuable items, gated residential communities, high-profile events and other special situations. The corporation's screening, training and performance standards for Custom Protection Officer (CPO) personnel are more rigorous than those of any state regulatory and licensing agency.

Everyone in The Wackenhut Corporation receives basic training in security procedures. Basic training, however, is not sufficient for the superior cadre of security personnel who wear the CPO uniform. In spite of the fact that Custom Protection Officer personnel are hired with substantial background experience and training, it is important to point out that The Wackenhut Corporation also administers a comprehensive forty (40) hour new-hire training program, as well as sixteen (16) hours of annual In-Service training. An additional forty (40) hour weapons training program is provided to armed personnel, resulting in an eighty (80) hour training program.

Many contract security companies are putting themselves, their clients and their security personnel at risk through the practice of arming less than qualified personnel. Wackenhut strongly opposes this practice. Only those personnel who are properly trained in firearms safety, "Use of Force" principles, and certified with the required weapons are assigned to armed posts at Wackenhut sites.
