Private Investigator Security Guard Services Launches
Summer Training Campaign

COLUMBUS — Ohio Department of Public Safety’s Private Investigator Security Guard Services (PISGS) is launching a summer training campaign. PISGS licenses and regulates the security guard and private investigator industry in the state and regularly shares opportunities for training with those in the industry. However, this campaign was created to bring heightened awareness during the summer months to various free trainings provided at the state and federal level. By raising awareness of these free training opportunities, PISGS hopes to aid the security guard industry in keeping Ohioans safe as they venture out to enjoy the activities and events that the warmer weather brings.

The trainings, which PISGS will promote on a weekly basis all summer long, focus on everything from managing large crowds and responding to bomb threats, to bag checking tips and screening techniques, and are products of the Department of Homeland Security, as well as the Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Ohio Private Investigation Security Services Commission.
