It's more then only noticing but as a security guar you need to act pro-active, being able to quickly analyze the situation react and figure out how to address it.
  2. Trustworthy: A security guard is responsible for securing the access to locations and protecting people and businesses from crime, so they have to be honest. Your client needs to be able to look at you and think “Yes, I’m safe with this person. I trust this person with my life. A quality candidate will present himself or herself well and be able to provide this trust.
  3. Physical fitness: You need to have healthy weight range and exercise regularly to stay fit. An unfit security guard might not be able to protect as well as a fit one and being in good shape will lead to better mental alertness.  Not only do they need to be physically fit, but they need to look reputable, too.

Depending on the size of the operation, the person or business that needs to be protected, security guards also work in a groups to ensure the perimeter is completely secure. You should be able to recognize the difference between when it’s time to take control, and when it’s time to stand down and take orders.
