    Security guard is best. Having said that there are times when one might refer to themselves as security officers. Such as in a report that will be reviewed in a court case. Juries find Security Officer much more professional sounding than guard and therefore might consider their testimony more credible.

      But why is "Security Guard" best?

      People assume that "officer" is some magical title. The only thing it means is "a person who holds a position of office." In this case, an employee who holds a position in a security company.

      I don't see a large rush to rename Loan Officers "Loan Clerks."

        A Gatekeeper

        How about this position in central London; advertised salary was 17 to 18k (Sterling) PA.

        Gatekeeper - Central London.

        A trustworthy person is sought for the role of Gatekeeper. Controlling access of personnel and vehicles to Lambeth Palace. You will play a key role in a team responsible for the security and safety of the Palace. In addition you will receive and process telephone calls received outside office hours. An ability to work unsupervised is important. With three other gatekeepers the successful candidate will work a three-shift system between 06.00 and 00.00. Previous experience in security would be an advantage. For further information about the Church of England, please visit www.cofe.anglican.org

              ...... don't see a large rush to rename Loan Officers "Loan Clerks."
              Actually, there are loan clerks (clucks) In banking, the title officer means that the individual is at least an Assistant Treasurer or AVP. They rank higher than the "clucks."

                  We actually dont wear CPO tags on the collar. If we did, I would have them on, but we keep them bare unless you have rank. I actually wear LT bars at my site as I am the site supervisor, but I dont get to wear my CPO uniform out there so I dont pin em on.

                    I wear SO on my collar, and my rank on my epaulets.

                      That would not be authorized on the CPO uniform.

                        Same. Wore agency initials on my collar (SO is generic and some folks in white and green tried to make cases that it meant "Sheriff's Office" and order you to take them off, arguing with them meant arrest), and rank on the X of my epaulets.

                          Fortunately, the Sheriff's Department was disbanded in Conn. somewhere around 2000. Otherwise, I'm sure someone would make an issue out of it.

                            Here in Louisiana the SO on your collar would be illegal.
