Why RSS Investigation and Security?

One major issue the private security industry is faced with today is the lack of requirements for its personnel. We understand that there are many other organizations out there that have the same license we do, but they certainly do not have the same officers that we have. Since we are also certified by the Ohio Peace Officer's Training Academy as a Private Security school we utilize our own; Commander, Instructors, Armorers, and Paramedics to make sure that each of our officers have an unparalleled level of training and performance.
