Special police officer association
YOU GOT QUESTIONS?
WE GOT ANSWERS!
Sometimes you’re curious or have questions that you need
answered about a service, a product or our association membership.
Remember what they say…The only dumb question is the one you didn’t ask.
We’ll always do our best to respond immediately, and if we don’t know the answer, we promise to research it until we do.
Private Officer International is here to help you!
Our office is staffed 24 hrs. a day, 365 days year, but not in the conventional sense.
Besides our regular office hours, someone is always on duty, monitoring breaking news, taking emergency calls and keeping tabs on our emails.
We are also on top of the latest serious security officer injuries or duty related deaths, making calls and notifications and beginning the assistance process.
Our days are always busy and sometimes even a little crazy and that’s why we ask that you send us an email with your request or need. This way the help desk can dispatch that email to the appropriate person and get you a reply in the quickest time possible.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter!
Private Officer International is a company on the move!
Our organization consists of eight individual companies and our staffing needs can change overnight.
While we always try to recruit experienced, educated professionals, we also have an internal On The Job training program that can be applied to numerous positions.
We want to invite you to submit your resume even if there are no positions available because we do read each one and we will call you if your experience matches our hiring need.
Check our openings often!
Private Officer International is on the move, expanding and growing in many different areas of the security and public safety industries.
We are always looking for talented, experienced, educated and dedicated industry professionals.

Growing Businesses Need To Network!
There’s an old saying in the sales industry which really fits well with what Private Officer International believes: “You’re only as good as your last sale”.
Your store, service or café might be the best in your state but if you don’t advertise, your business won’t grow and eventually it will become stagnant and could close because there’s not enough business to support your operation.
In an association organization, the same holds true. Membership is the blood of our business and to stay alive we must network, recruit and grow.
Area chapters will help us to better reach the security community while providing essential support services to our members in their own backyard!
Join us at our monthly chapter meeting.
Or, if you’d like, you may also apply to be
an Area Chapter Manager!

Imagine being a great chef, making some of the most delicious foods that has everyone in your town talking, but no one outside of your area will ever get the chance to experience those dishes, smells, tastes and joy that your food brings everyone who eats it.
Or how about a company that offers great services, products and innovative methods for a particular industry but this company is located in small town USA and the ability to reach others in this field is difficult and impersonal.
Well, that’s where we find ourselves today. We really have some great training, membership benefits, award and recognition programs, and a growing list of innovative, cutting edge and very exciting industry related products to offer to the security world!
We realize that most people can’t come and see us so we’re going to see them!
On top of that, Private Officer International wants to become part of your neighborhood and part of the security community where you live.
So we’re taking the next big step for our organization… AREA CHAPTERS.

Just a few words that describes who we are!
Our business is solely designed and operated to enhance the professionalism and uniformity of the growing international private security, public safety and law enforcement professions.
Based in Charlotte NC, Private Officer International stands as a beacon in the night as it addresses the growing need for enhanced private security officer training standards, security officer recognition and award programs, pay and benefit issues, and other rising issues as this industry continues to rapidly grow since the devastating events of September 11, 2001.
We have also expanded our services, training, products and memberships to include a wide array of protective services and law enforcement professionals working collectively to protect life and property.
Along with increased responsibilities, scope of authority and proactive daily demands brought on the private officer by clients, employers and the current times that require enhanced security procedures, comes the increased need for officer resources, networking, products, communications, safety awareness and the availability for all of these at the click of a computer mouse.
Founded in 2004 by a 41 year law enforcement and private security veteran, Rick McCann continues as the Chairman of the Board and CEO of this rapidly growing organization.
PRIVATE OFFICER has since its inception offered superb training and services and continues to expand and provide ever changing and diversified services and products to our industry twenty four hours a day, three hundred and sixty five days a year. We continue to add valuable sworn and non-sworn officer training to anyone interested.
We have also recently added a digital magazine, on-demand video training and Internet radio programs and other mass media platforms to our site as a way to further provide our services to private officers when the time is convenient for them.
PRIVATE OFFICER INTERNATIONAL was founded as an enhancement to the private security profession and is fast becoming the go to source for security training, news, products, resources and is quickly becoming an industry leader in the private security industry.
To continuously provide a safe environment for our members and community.
Members strive to uphold the beliefs of being moral, ethical, loyal, and honest.
Our community expects our organization to respond in a timely, competent, and proficient manner.
We deliver our services in a considerate, caring, and sympathetic way.
Our members are dedicated, committed, and accountable to each other and our citizens.
The members and organization strive to be diverse, open, fair, and equal.
Our community is our customer and we can only take care of them if we are a transparent organization who is committed and effective in service delivery.
The objective of PRIVATE OFFICER INTERNATIONAL is “to enhance professionalism in the security industry through the establishment of standards, the promotion and promulgation of ethics and education, and to engage the political process for the good of the industry.”
Additionally, we have now added our same determination for the private police profession, investigators, bail bonds and enforcement, campus and school officers, loss prevention and all private and public professions who work collectively to protect life and property.
The simple, unblemished truth about the whys and who and what for is that we have a vision for the private security industry’s future and that of its two million plus security personnel.
Through a strong Code of Ethics for our members, employees, associates, board of directors, officers and vendors, we believe that we can and will change how the business community and the world around us perceives the security profession and those who are employed in it.
Through our Code of Ethics, unwavering vision, strong commitment and dedication to our goals and our duties, WE WILL ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION!
