Protective Force International LLC (PFI) NV PILB#2687 is a Nevada born, Veteran owned and operated security contracting firm.
We provide both uniformed armed and unarmed Officers, depending on the client’s needs. Both have passed our rigorous standards graduating multiple courses from our training branch headquartered in Las Vegas. Our in-house Academy Training School allows us to hand-pick highly qualified graduates from our courses.
Do you know the difference between a Security Guard vs. a Security Officer?
Many people believe that both Guards and Officers are one in the same, there are similarities but they are both very different occupations. Both of them share one common goal and that’s the safety and protection of their client or clients property. However, the pay, responsibilities, training, job requirements, and equipment carried is very different. PFI offers the highest standard of Security Officers who undergo weeks of specialized training and are prepared to respond in emergencies.
What is a Security Guard?
A Security Guard, unlike Security Officers, are lower ranking of the two. PFI doesn’t employ Security Guards within their ranks for the safety of our clients and other Officers. Guards may at times have some supervision in their daily operations but they are not required to have as much experience, training, or equipment like an Officer. Guards may only require a minimal background check, and typically get paid less than an Officer. Guards are usually positioned in one location to only report suspicious activity, and or provide customers information at the clients venue. Security Guards are not usually prepared to respond and address various levels of security incidents and emergencies.
What is a Security Officer?
Security Officers are individuals who are expected to represent and respond at a higher standard than their Guard counterparts. Officers usually have more experience, require an extensive criminal background check, and are required to respond to a vast array of security related incidents. Security Officers at times have a higher pay scale, but are also entrusted with a substantial amount of responsibility compared to a Guard. Security Officers are at times, not stationed and required to patrol and be mobile within their assigned jurisdiction.
PFI Security Officers attend an extensive Security Academy held in-house at Las Vegas, NV. Officers are vetted and trained to the highest standard in our industry. Our program is based around the hospitality industry and ensure a customer service based operation for your establishment and venue.
Both Security Officers and Security Guards are important jobs, and should be given only to trusted, licensed, and properly trained individuals. But there is a difference in service and response, we hope that you make the right decision in protecting your guests, employees, and establishments.

I attended one of the Women's Self Defense Seminars. I recommend it to all ages of women. Some things covered might be common sense, but it's a great wake up to be aware of your surroundings. They touch base on social media and good practices using service like Uber and Lyft. More...
