Sentry Security Guards

Sentry Security’s badge is the badge that represents quality in New Orleans Metro area security guards. The New Orleans Metro area is home to the New Orleans Saints, The French Quarter, Plantations, and the iconic Jackson Square. Residents of the area enjoy the unique lifestyle but are becoming increasingly aware of the need for extra security. Visitors also have come to expect to see security guards posted, keeping people safe and peaceful.

Every Sentry security guard gets rigorous training in general security duties such as:

  • Patrolling
  • Professional ethics
  • Civilian law enforcement
  • Communication
  • Technology
  • Emergency response
  • Crime Deterrents
  • Armed and Unarmed Postings

After guards pass the intial Sentry Security screening process, they are evaluated on their individual strengths to decide which type of security detail is their best fit. We classify each guard as either a Level 1 guard, a Level 2 guard, or a Level 3 guard to proceed with further training. Many guards start as a Level 1 guard, and through training, will get promoted as they gain the required skills and experience. Our Sentry training system never stops. As Sentry guards get promoted to higher levels they get trained for additional post duties. You can expect that every guard will be highly qualified for the duties expected at their assigned posting.

Level 1 – At this level, security guards are considered Watchmen. They control site access, provide a highly visible incident deterrent as well as offer basic public assistance. Unarmed security officers are an excellent deterrent against crimes like theft and vandalism. Because the majority of businesses do not expect any violent crime to occur on the premises the additional cost and time of training for armed security may not be necessary. For average retail location or residential setting, many of our clients opt for unarmed security in their facility or location.
