A Movement: "A change or development"

We are people that carry the interest of Protecting our Rights, Our Freedom & Our Lives. We provide assistance the people of Planet Earth while obeying our Law & Creating a World without Individual & Police Abuse. 

As a SUPER, you make a commitment to Show up as an example and Provide the Protection needed to move forward successfully into our future. 

This Program provides the following. Each STEP in the Supers S.G.S Program gives you the Training & Encouragement you'll need to succeed. All Supers are Trained Scheduled for A Public Assignment or Task. All Supers are PAID Per Hour and Hold a position as an "Armed or Unarmed Security Officer / Guard and/or Bounty Hunter.

There are plenty of Hollywood movies out there that detail the rigorous Physical and Mental actions involved in becoming a Peace Unit. You might even be able to picture the security courses, shooting Range Meetings and tactical scenario training you'll go thru. These elements are all important in law officer training—but they are only one part of the process.

Given the high level of responsibility and trust afforded to law enforcers, the standards for becoming an Armed Super's Security Officer / Guard are higher than what you’d see in many careers. While it’s true these standards and evaluation process may vary a little depending on the state, county, city or town you want to work for, there are a few steps that all would-be Supers Officers can expect to take. If you’re not familiar with the steps, this can be a complicated process to understand. But once you get going, S.G.S Officials and education programs will help you navigate some of the requirements.

The steps to becoming a Supers Officer

Before you commit to becoming a super, it helps to know ahead of time what’s coming—so let’s dive right in.

Step 1: Background checks

At the beginning of the application process, S.G.S Enterprise Administration agencies will conduct a number of checks into an applicant’s background, including criminal history and even credit history.

While a background check isn’t literally the first step, it is the first one you’ll need to consider before you get too far along. If you have concerns about how your background check or credit history might impact your candidacy, you’ll want to ask an S.G.S academy admissions representative about it.

Your credit history may be analyzed because it gives potential employers an idea of your level of responsibility and potential problems like gambling-related debts. S.G.S Enterprises look into applicants’ history of criminal activity, employment, residency, and academic records as well.

“Basically, the S.G.S Administration is going to get deep into your business,” Administration is looking for responsible people who play by the rules.”

Things like felonies and gross misdemeanors could disqualify you from becoming an S.G.S Officer, but less serious offenses could also be problematic—it really depends on the department and its policies.

A misdemeanor conviction, depending on what it’s for, won’t necessarily be a deal-breaker, but it certainly doesn’t look good. S.G.S Enterprises also encourages applicants to notify their references and teachers on Security Officer Job Reference, because they’ll likely be contacted as character references.

Step 2: Degree or academy training

The requirements for this step will vary substantially depending on the state in which you’d like to work as a Security Officer or Bounty Hunter. Many states do not require their officers/guards to be college-educated, even if they may prefer it. 

Generally speaking, the S.G.S Enterprise training process for would-be security officials follows two routes:

  1. Complete training by earning a two- or four-year certification in Criminal Justice or similar field from a Peace Officer Standings and Training (POST)-certified college or university, or

  2. Completing training through an S.G.S Enterprise -approved Security / Law Academy or Training Program.

The options can differ depending on your state, so be sure to check with the agency that sets standards for Security / Supers Officer Training and license in your area. Some states also have arrangements for military reciprocity, allowing candidates who served in the military to follow a different process in acknowledgment of the training they already have.

Whichever path you take, your training will include classroom instruction in state and local laws, covering topics like constitutional law, civil rights, and police ethics. Recruits also receive training and supervised experience in areas such as patrol, traffic control, firearm use, self-defense, first aid, and emergency response.

“The S.G.S Academy gives you the basic tools you need to become a functional Security / Supers Officer. “It is the gateway you must pass through in order to become a Security / Supers officer, just like how doctors have to graduate from medical school to lawfully practice medicine.”

Though not always listed as a requirement, an Associate’s degree is a plus, while a Bachelor’s degree would be ideal.

“A rule of thumb is that for every hour you spend investigating, you’ll spend two hours writing reports. Plus, having an advanced degree can be helpful in obtaining promotions.”

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) also notes that applicants with previous law enforcement or military experience—and those who speak more than one language—will have greater opportunities to become Security / Supers officer


Step 3: Officer / Guard licensing board

You’d think after all those steps you’d be ready to take the oath and begin serving your community, but every candidate must pass this exam if they wish to become a Security / Bounty Hunter.

Your training program—whether it’s through an S.G.S Enterprise Academy, Community College, or University—will give you the necessary requirements to take the S.G.S Law / POST exam. Bypassing this capstone exam, you are licensed to enforce the law as a Security / Bounty Hunter in your jurisdiction, and you are ready to seek employment with S.G.S Enterprises.

Step 4: Psychological evaluation

That’s not quite the end of the road, however. Prior to starting a law enforcement role, S.G.S Administration and S.G.S Agencies will likely evaluate recruits for psychological stability and mental fitness. These psych tests vary, but will likely include lengthy written exams and possibly a one-on-one interview with a psychologist. You may also be subjected to a polygraph test to cross-reference the answers provided in your application packet.

“[The polygraph and psych tests] are screening tools that look for signs of stability. They look for anger issues, indicators the candidate is not overly susceptible to stress and booze, and [that the candidate] generally enjoy a positive outlook on life.”

The best advice is just, to be honest when answering. Once again, it’s smartest to play by the rules.

Step 5: Continuing education & career advancement

Once you have officially become a Security / Bounty Hunter, you will still have plenty to learn. Nothing beats work experience to show you all of the specialized areas Security / Supers officers might want or need to learn more about. Consider for a moment all of the potential crimes in the legal system and all the skill sets to which law enforcement professionals would need to know how to respond—and you’ll have an idea of just how much an officer could learn.

Many of these ongoing training areas will be mandated by your trusted Law Enforcement department based on federal regulation and local needs. Departments might also incentivize other education opportunities to encourage their officers forward. Law Training is a consistent part of the job.

To give an idea of what’s available, Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLECT) offer courses in a huge array of relevant specialized skills for police officers. You can find everything from Active Shooter Response training to Seized Computer Evidence Recovery—from International Banking and Money Laundering to Digital Photography for Law Enforcement.

Some of these areas are even connected to different job titles. Learn more about some of the different types of Law / Security / Supers officers to get a better idea of what’s out there.

Is becoming an S.G.S Security / Bounty Hunter the right path for you?

While the steps to becoming a Security / Bounty Hunter may seem lengthy, completing them is absolutely necessary if you want to achieve the fulfilling career you’ve set your sights on. And a good law enforcement program will also help you navigate the process.

But as you can probably imagine, a career as a Security / Supers officer isn’t for everyone. It’s well worth your time to evaluate your aptitude for the job before you start pursuing enrollment in a Law Enforcement program.
