A security guard is a professional individual in the community. As such, they must present a professional image that gives an air of strength, alertness and efficiency. As an employee, you are representing not only yourself, but also your employer company and the client you are working for. Often, you will be dealing with clients of your employer or members of the public so it is important that you present a polished image. In situations such as working entry points of secure offices and doors of nightclubs, you may be required to be recognizable as an authority official by the general public.

A presentable security officer should always have:

  • Clean, neat hair
  • A clean, pressed complete uniform
  • Clean boots with soft soles. Soft soles will eliminate noisy footsteps when you’re on patrol and also absorb impact more, reducing the likelihood of sore feet, knees and shin splints during long patrols
  • A clean shaven face to enhance your look of professionalism

Be prepared for your job by organising your uniform the evening before. These types of presentation details do not go unnoticed in the workplace and will contribute greatly to your successful security career.
