Impersonating a police officer? Our uniforms explained…

A question that’s come up a lot for us on social media recently is the question of our uniforms.


Impersonating a police officer


Most security officers and guards of course wear uniforms that represent the company they work for. Providing security officers with uniforms has numerous benefits and should not be overlooked when establishing business with a private security company.



Civilians interpret someone in a uniform as more productive and credible than someone not in uniform. Part of building a successful security company is ensuring that the brand image is associated with expertise and professionalism. Uniforms accomplish this in a cost-effective, simple way.
