Officer Screening

Lofton Security personnel are our most important resource, which is why each candidate must meet stringent qualifications.

We Screen with background checks and past work experience to ensure you higher caliber officers - and peace of mind.
We Test and conduct personal interviews, skill evaluations, verification of credentials, reference checks, and drug screens to ensure you more capable officers - and satisfaction.
We Evaluate and match each officer to each job, aligning skills, experience, and attitude with the task at hand to ensure you competence - and compatibility.
We Train each officer to fit effectively into your organization. We work closely with you to insure that your standards are our standards, and that all of your policies, procedures, regulations, etc. are clearly defined and understood by our officers - and all personnel.

We Believe...

Relationships are built…one on one.
Know your people - match interest and talents to the tasks.
Don’t manage by numbers. (They just show if we’re on track.) People do the work.
People should feel better when they leave than when they came – and in turn we feel better.
When we help others, we help ourselves.
Great expectations: fair pay, fair treatment, teach me.
Have fun…and be better.
Work at having fun (51% of the time.) If you don’t feel it, fake it. Having fun is not slacking off. Work is more natural than play.
