Recruitment and training of security guards

Armcor has a rigorous recruitment process in place to ensure that only the highest calibre personnel are chosen. Security guards must have police clearance, score more than 80% in a specialised test and be successful in the interview process. Once selected, they undergo extensive training before beginning their first assignment. Armcor security guards also attend regular refresher courses.

The Armcor Guard of the Month Award recognises the guard who has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Attendance bonuses are paid to all guards who report for duty in a timely and regular manner. Site bonuses are paid to guards based on the relative importance of the site.

Firearms and maintenance

Firearms and ammunition procedures strictly adhere to all related regulations. All firearms and ammunition are inspected monthly, and an officer is only issued with a firearm when they meet all competency requirements as set out by the National Policing Standards. All staff members are required to qualify on the basic firearm course twice a year.Armcor Security key clients (past and present)
