It Latin America you are simply not equipped for the security industry unless you have a gun... and of course the will to use it.

    My name is Jennie, and I just wanted to let you and all travellers know that there now is a webpage called theultimatetourist.com, where you finally can get some use out of all these photos you have, posing by different tourist attractions all over the world.

    Choose between almost 150 different attractions and typical touristic activities, upload your photos (and remember, you also have to be in every photo to prove you were actually there.. :), reach different tourist-levels and everybody over 80 points will become Ultimate Tourists.

    So if you want to write something about it, or just compete with your own photos, just go into http://theultimatetourist.com

  2. Seriously, i wont noticed that its a guard if i havent seen the gun..their uniform is kinda different to the typical guard look.

  3. Well, this was just around the main square in Antigua, Guatemala, so there are a lot of tourists around there. Maybe this look is to try to make foreigners feel less intimidated... albeit he has a shot-gun, haha.

  4. But it's not that unusual that a guard should carry a gun. After all, police carry guns too. And seriously...in the US you don't even have to be in the security industry to have a gun, in many states you can just go to the store and buy one. To me, that sounds way more unreasonable than a guard carrying a gun.

  5. The security officer job needs proper training to use weapons efficiently. They are also trained to handle emergency situation in an effective and organized manner in short period of time.

  6. Great article. You’re right about security guards! I think people under-estimate the role and duties that security guards play in society. Security Guards are professionals and they are licensed and trained guys providing security for the businesses and even individuals.

  7. Good post. I like the way you written the post on security guard. You have raised such great points to think about. Thanks for sharing. Really security guards are very helpful in our day to day life. If you are interested to become a security guard in your place, know the eligibility and its requirements from us.
