git! any jobs in your company lol
Actually, quite regularly! The turn over is not high, but there as it's not the most interesting job. The place is so well defended and tightly locked down, any interactions are very rare. Usually someone with a long rifle hunting deer straying onto the property. Only real police type experience is searching people and cars on the way in and using the metal/explosives/wand detectors. Pay is good though, we earn more than the local cops (stupid I know when their job is so dangerous) and I'm making literally twice what I was in hand as a PCSO.
The firearms training was very extensive. Ex-Police on my course said they never shot as much as we have in recent months. It was around 3 months or daily shooting and by the end of it we all got pretty good. Infact, our pass rate for shooting was 80% where as the law enforcement pass mark in this state is 70%.
And shooting handguns/rifles, I can see now how in the heat of the moment and under stress people's responses like "That cop didn't have to use all his ammo" or "Can't they shoot to wound?" or "What about a warning shot" are all stupid arguments. Security / Police are trained to be proficient in F/A, not sharp shooters.
