While the main role of a security officer is to be the first responder to any threat or incident, they are also tasked with prioritising and protecting the lives of personnel and damages towards any assets belonging to the organisation they work for. They are also trained to deescalate any situation and prevent incidents escalating to higher threat levels.

Incidents can happen at a moment’s notice, and it’s hard for anyone to be constantly on top of it . Being a security officer is a full-time vigil as they are on the frontline and keep a constant watch for any threat . It’s not a role that people can be half-hearted or distracted in. Personnel have gone through training courses and obtained their security license to carry out their duties.

There are 3 core modules that all security officers are required to take which makes up the foundation of their roles as security officers (although there are other elective modules they can take to upgrade their personal skills), which are:

  • Incident Response: Handle Security Incidents & Services (Security Officer Basic Licensing Unit)
  • Guard & Patrol: Provide Guards & Patrol Services (Security Officer Basic Licensing Unit)
  • Threat Observation (Recognise Terrorist Threats)

You have to get your security clearance with the Police Licensing & Regulatory Department (PLRD) before you send in your application to be a security officer, after which you must attend the 3 modules under the Basic Licensing Units (as mentioned above). You then need to apply to get your Security ID card (which is your security license) before you can be a full-fledged security officer in Singapore.
