  • "new tactical Special Ops strike team"?!?!?! Boss been hitting the crack pipe and

    watching too many Stallone/Norris/Seagal/Van Dame movies....again.

    And I thought the Help Wanted ads for Armed Guard for Med MJ "Clubs" were 'not a good idea'.(you were required to also have a CA state "Med MJ Card")


    Now these guys want you to show up "anywhere in CA" for 2-3 days a week "open availability"(so you really can't have another job) for $13/hour?.....as some sort of half-baked Mall Ninjas???

    Actually, this is sorta why I got back into security. Remember when Tom Hayden brings in a big squad of "Men licensed to carry firearms" to protect the Don in the hospital. I'm expecting as CA and the rest of USA descends into 3rd World lawlessness there will be more of a market for "heavy duty security" for those with money.


    Maybe it is "strike" as in "labor dispute" but that normally can be seen coming for months.

    HORNET PROTECTIVE SERVICES is acquiring (ARMED STRIKE TEAM OFFICERS):

    Wow. I don't know what Cal's current unemployment rate is, but I guess they're banking on lots of unemployed cops / corrections officers or vets applying? Or it may be the old switcheroo ("We filled those positions, but we've got this muddy construction site in a bad part of town...").

    I say apply - but ask for $17.00 to start and some darn good benefits. Just my 2 cents.

      Why do I imagine a bunch of call of duty commandos applying for this? I hope they have a big budget for starting up a SWAT team and keeping it trained.

        New Tactical Special Ops Strike Team"?!?!?!

        The part about ".....creative writing skills....." also caught my eye. Really? Can you imagine if a guard from there ever had to testify in court? Gee, Mr. Blart, what are your qualification to be an "operator" on the Special Ops Strike Team? Well, I have had Nightstick 101, Pepper Spray 102, and Creative Writing 103. Really, so your report of this incident is an example of "creative writing" then?

          Squid, you beat me to the punch on posting this. I too, saw this ad on craigslist and am not sure what to think of it...

          I do know that Security_K9_Guy is right in that they better have a big budget to keep them properly trained... And even bigger budget to keep them insured. I know some of the areas they operate in are very seedy. Not the kind of place you want to raise a family. Atleast not anymore.

          All in all, I can see this going ALL the wrong ways. Aside from SO's conducting force protection for DHS designated critical infrastructure targets and the like, private security does not need to be running around playing Rainbow Six. By all means protect and serve your community, but do so within the scope of the SO's job and leave the police work to the police.

            "Creative Writing" just means you can start with blank piece of paper and write a semi-coherent report on a given subject/incident, in complete sentences.

            Not just filling out DAR with 0100:All Secure; 0200:All Secure....

            But I'm still wondering exactly what sort of "tac strikes" he is thinking about, given as their aren't that many Mafia Dons able to hire private, legal body guards.

            Maybe it is like the Santee neighborhood in East San Jose where a judge ordered the LL to hire private security to respond to all the crime(why didn't judge order the SJPD to do something???).

                My exact first thoughts with those photos. Some look really silly because they don't know how to properly wear a beret. It isn't a pie plate

                  What an absolutely ridiculous idea. I'm pretty liberal when it comes to private companies ceating positions that are more than just "guards", but a SWAT team is taking it too far. "Strike Team"? Are you kidding me? Guys are going to get hired thinking the employer wants them to shoot first and ask questions later. I can understand this for PMC or foreign type jobs maybe, but domestically? Not buying it.

                    don't know about the berets but...

                    Fairfield/Nacaville is near Travis Air Force base.
                    There is a railroad nearby.
                    If you know the mission of Travis AFB the
                    job could be about protecting military property
                    that is in transit to/from the base.

                    "report writing" could include counting...

                      There website doesn't look very impressive. The Idea of a Armed Strike Team sounds good on paper.
                      But the amount of training & liability is too much. I know a lot of the bigger players have similar teams in place
                      but they call them Global Response Team etc not ARMED SWAT TEAMS. I could imagine all the Security Guards
                      who didn't pass the POST or couldn't get hired on to a police department go and apply. $13 bucks an hour isn't
                      worth the time & effort.

                        Looks like these guys do mostly "Public Housing" AKA 'hard core slum gang ghetto'.

                        So I'm guessing "tactical strike" translates into "flood gang infested building with enough guards long enough for some government clown to say 'all fixed'".


                        Don't worry, the way the USA is heading, this will be needed in all neighborhoods.

                          They flood Section 8 Housing with armed guards to determine the criminal element on the
                          property. Then issue trespass warnings/evict/arrest the problem tentants or street gangs that thrive
                          in that enviroment.. After they all got removed/arrested then you focus on the community.

                            Wow... I am speechless, but not surprised. I have been seeing a lot more smaller security firms turning to this style of "urban commando" security. What I really like to know is how you market this type of security to a client, other than say a secured facility such as nuclear materials facilities or ammunition depots.

                              This security outfit looks like a bunch of fu fu @ss clowns, their web site looks as professional as they do. lol.

                              They have no concept how to correctly wear their Berets, they'd be eaten alive for breakfast in the military world.

                              Mickey Mouse at best.
                              Pop Pop - It reminds me of an old statement by my Master Sergeant. "A Good Run is better then a Bad Stand".

                              Sec Trainer- Pop Pop: Hope you don't mind if I quote your Master Sergeant. He was a very smart man.

                              Pop Pop- Yes Sir, Thank you Senior Instructor Sec Trainer, hope you don't mind if I place your quote into my Signature?

                              Sec Trainer- Permission granted, recruit. Now, police the company area!


                              flat out cool..
