This month’s tragedies in Dayton and El Paso — which mirrored events that have become far too common since the late 1990s — have more employers looking at hiring their own private security. In Ohio, security services are required to be licensed through the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s (ODPS) and its Ohio Homeland Security division.
If you are considering hiring contract security for your business, or currently use such services, the ODPS encourages you to use its Private Investigator and Security Guard Services (PISGS) as an informal resource. This will help ensure that a company is operating legally in Ohio, and that security guards are properly trained and registered. See more here or call (614) 466-4130. 8/12/2019
