Security Guard Austin, Texas

Central Texas Protective Services (CTPS) is a locally owned and operated business so we are familiar with the security needs of the Central Texas area.

We are currently providing our security services to clients in Austin and San Antonio.

All current Central Texas Protective Services Officers are Level III Certified Commissioned Security Officers licensed by the Texas Department of Public Safety to carry firearms.

Non-Commissioned Officers are also available if an unarmed presence is preferred.

Additionally, we have several Active Duty Texas Law Enforcement Officers available for off duty law enforcement.

This enables Central Texas Protective Services to provide you with a professional uniformed armed security presence to ensure that your particular security needs can be met.

Commissioned officers

We offer armed security officers that provide maximum threat and crime deterrence. Our commissioned officers are meticulously trained to deal with any situation that may occur on your business or property. To carry a firearm, all licensed commissioned security officers in the State of Texas must pass the Level 3 training course that includes training in firearm safety and includes a range test to ensure firearm proficiency with handguns and shotguns. The course also teaches officers handcuffing, defensive tactics, conflict resolution, officer safety, crime scene protection, laws, regulations, note taking and report writing. Finally, the State of Texas requires all licensed security officers to re-certify every two years to keep up with all new laws and keep their training fresh.

Learn what it takes to become a licensed security guard in Texas.

Non-commissioned Officers

Security Guards that do not carry a firearm are non-commissioned officers.  These officers take the same in-classroom training as commissioned officers but are not required to take the firearm instruction.  This means that they have the same level of training in handcuffing, defensive tactics, conflict resolution, officer safety, crime scene protection, laws, regulations, note taking and report writing as commissioned officers.

Personal Protection Officers

We also offer personal protection officers which are commonly referred to as body guards.  Our officers have years of experience protecting high-profile people and keeping them safe is a top priority.  Our personal protection officers require extra training that not only includes the Level 3 Commissioned Security Officer training but also requires Level 4 Personal Protection Officer (PPO) training.
