Houston Security Patrol Services
Houston non-commissioned security officers are unarmed guards that secure non-life-threatening or low-risk conditions. At Texas Crime Prevention Agency, our non- commissioned officers are your best choice in situations that involve public safety, including schools, hospitals, and apartments. All of our officers have at least five years of experience in either the military, law enforcement, or the private security sector.
While they do not carry firearms, non-commissioned security officers in Houston are still highly valuable. In fact, there are many times when a non-commissioned officer is a better choice than a gun-carrying guard. For example, an armed officer in a mall setting could cause unnecessary alarm for law-abiding shoppers. A non-commissioned officer in a uniform could provide the right amount of deterrence, while keeping the public at ease.

Why Hire a Houston Non-Commissioned Officer
In Houston, a non-commissioned security officer is the best choice for your security needs if you require someone to monitor potentially dangerous situations, theft, or suspicious activity that would not result in loss of life or bodily injury. Non-commissioned officers provide a uniformed deterrent, keeping criminals at bay and enabling the public to feel safe.
There are many situations in which a non-commissioned security officer is a good choice. Take malls, for example. While an armed guard might promote distress for shoppers, a non-commissioned officer represents security without the potential for need for weapons. Other situations include:
- Apartment Building Security
- Parking lots
- School events, like games and dances
- Business night-shift duty
At TCPA, we ensure that our officers receive expert and ongoing trainings in emergency situations, so they comply with the Texas Private Security Bureau’s (TPSB) requirements. Our non-commissioned security officers have a direct line to our dispatch services, which can alert authorities of any escalating threats.
When people who want to commit a crime see a security officer around, they’re less likely to do it. Posting security officers will help deter break-ins and theft. Additionally, people who want to commit crimes in around the property such as drug use or solicitation will likely find our security officers irritating and decide to go elsewhere. Overall, crime is less likely to occur in and around apartment buildings with security officers.
Reacts in Real Time
In the cases where simply posting a security officer isn’t enough to stop crime from happening, you’ll have someone there to deal with the problem. TCPA Security Officers undergo extensive training in order to learn how to react quickly and appropriately to whatever situation they might be presented with. In the event of a break in or some other crime, a TCPA security officer can easily respond to the situation and handle it appropriately.
Residents Have Someone to Call
If a tenant sees someone suspicious or has an issue, she can call your security officer. The security officer can then quickly address the situation. This response is much easier than calling the police because there is no lag time. The tenant will not have to wait in fear until the police arrive. In other cases, you will not have to worry about an untrained tenant attempting to solve the issue herself. Instead, the security officer she knows and trusts will handle the situation for her so she can continue on her day.
Make Management Easier
As a property manager, you probably deal with constant phone calls from tenants. Tenants often complain about parking issues, noise and other problems, which can leave you with a lot to deal with. If you have security on-site, however, your tenants can get in contact with security to voice their complaints about these things. Then, complaints can be handled, and tenants can be made satisfied without you having to do anything, which can make the management of your property a whole lot easier.
Keep Your Property in Good Condition
It’s not uncommon for apartment complexes to become the victim of vandalism, theft and other issues. Bad tenants—and people from surrounding neighborhoods—can spray paint graffiti on exterior surfaces and more. They can even do petty things like litter, which can still make your property look bad. Good teams of security officers can help prevent this from happening, which can save you money in the long run. Plus, it’ll help you keep your property in good shape and looking nice for passerby and prospective tenants.
Attract Better Residents
When your property value goes up, you’re more likely to attract stable residents. Families and other reliable tenants are more likely to move in because of the high property value and feeling of safety. These types of tenants tend to pay their rent on time sign longer leases, both of which will be good for your business. Security officers are great assets to attract stable, reliable tenants.
Houston Non-Commissioned Security Officer Qualifications
In Texas, a non-commissioned security officer must be licensed. The training includes understanding the law, as well as learning the important roles of conflict resolution and non-violent de-escalation techniques. Officers are taught to observe, write reports, and respond to emergencies.
Non-commissioned security officers in Houston must also submit to a background check. They cannot have any felonies or serious misdemeanors. They cannot be registered sex offenders. If they are former military, they cannot have been dishonorably discharged.
At TCPA, our officers go beyond the most basic qualifications. We look for individuals who possess adaptability, integrity, and intuition. We seek non-commissioned officers who understand Houston and many are bilingual. Any officer we hire is screened, selected, and evaluated on an ongoing basis to meet your expectations and satisfy for your security needs.

Increases Property Value
When your property is safe and crime-free, its value goes up. Posting security officers will not only deter crime on your property, but around it as well. Security officers are a great way to make a community safer and ensure that crime rates are low. When a safe property is in a low-crime area, it has better value.
