Private Security Professionals of America (PSPA)

PSPA is an interactive web-based security organization.

Established in March of 2010, PSPA was founded for the betterment of the private security industry, its practitioners, and end users, which include: Private Security Professionals, the Employers of Private Security Professionals, and Clients who contract services of Private Security Agencies.

PSPA understands that Private Security plays a significant role in the day-to-day protection of people and assets. The steadfast growth in Private Security coupled with the broadened responsibilities placed upon the Private Security sector, further necessitates the effective hiring, training and deployment of educated security personnel to accomplish the needs of the industry and those served by the industry. PSPA footnotes that many States require an occupational license to work as a security officer yet many States have no requirements. Occupational licenses, permits, and/or commissions may include a criminal background check and mandated training. However a national standard ceases to exist.

To this end, PSPA has developed a number of Networking as well as Training and Certification Programs to better educate all U.S. employed Private Security (Officers, Supervisors, and Managers) in addition to Employers and Clients who oversee and/or engage security personnel and related services.

PSPA Training programs are accepted by countless agencies, institutions, and organizations (both public and private) as Continuing Education Hours/Continuing Education Units (CEU’S).
