Arcadia Security operates in the Las Vegas Valley, and is regulated by the State of Nevada's Private Investigators Licensing Board (PILB). Anyone wanting to obtain certification as a security officer can obtain an "Unarmed" certification via the PILB website. In order to obtain an "Armed" certification, an officer must first be certified as Unarmed by PILB, and then obtain employment from a Licensed Armed Security Provider. That employer then needs to sponsor the employee in obtaining their Armed upgrade through an approved and licensed PILB Armed Instructor.
Arcadia Security maintains our own, In-House Armed Instructor that we utilize to either maintain our employees Armed certifications or to upgrade new employees from Unarmed to Armed. We do not, and cannot provide armed instruction or certification to those that are not employed by our agency.
All officers employed by Arcadia Security will be required to obtain and maintain their armed certification through PILB. Additionally, all Arcadia officers will receive expanded training and/or certifications in various other disciplines as a condition of employment. As is standard at Arcadia, every officer will receive training and/or certification in the Axon Taser (X-26e, X-26-p, X2 & Taser7), ASP Expandable/Tactical Baton, Handcuffing & Restraint Application, Tactical Flashlight & Safariland Group OC Spray, just to name a few. All training and certification is provided by an actual and certified instructor, not just made up courses we are unable to stand behind. Upon completion, each officer receives an actual certificate of training from Axon, ASP, Safariland, etc., and a copy is added to the employees file, validating their training and certifications.
These courses are standard for all Arcadia officers, but are also available to certified/licensed security professionals that are not employed by our agency, but do hold a valid PILB certification at any level. If you're interested in obtaining training/certification in any of our offered courses, please contact our office for more information on eligibility, scheduling & pricing.
