  • PPS in Virginia

    Are there many jobs for this in the State and what are the General requirements for the job(company not state) also who may carry a firearm, the state apparently says 18 but I doubt this, can anyone confirm. Also can someone waive certain parts of the training for military training, if not it doesn't really matter.

    Also Training what is the average cost, and what do you have to buy for it. ANyone recommend a vcertain school?

    Any other info will be helpful

    Thanks,
    Varga

      Personal Protection Specialist. Most off-duty cops and private military contractors call it PPS, EP, etc. Mainly because those are the guys that the PMCs are hiring for this kind of stuff.

          One thing I can tell you is that unless you are deployed to Iraq, they're not really going to care if your a reservist or not. Nor will your reserve unit be pleased that your going on details that can last a year or more.

          It is usually Prior Active Duty Military or Law Enforcement to start.

              You should really be asking EP people. They don't associate with security guards, and they're usually law enforcement officers looking for side work, "between agencies."

                  There are several ways in which you can transfer other relevant training to a Virginia DCJS registration category. This is done through a waiver system that is determined on a case by case basis.

                  Varga, if you're planning to work in VA, Fed. or not ( Fed. contracts in this state require Virginia security registration . Even if you work a in a U.S. fed. building, armed, you still must be trained and registered by state standards) then you need to become an expert in all things DCJS, the VA Department of Criminal Justice Services. Security, Law Enforcement, and everything that has to do with protection falls under the DCJS umbrella.

                  Your Security training under DCJS will mimic that of all Police Academies (albeit shorter in duration) within the state. My own, most important certifications were completed at the VSP academy in Richmond. That's how close the Security/LE relationship is in VA.

                  Here ya go, Troop. Learn it, live it! Good luck.

                      im willing to relocate anywhere in VA, but will be more than likely around the tidewater or charlottesville area, maybe even around DC. And I wil be planning on doing this around May.
