Every security officer serves as a witness to any particular incident. The cornerstone of a security
officer in California is to “observe and report.” Whether it is as a loss prevention agent working at a
retail establishment, or as an “in-house” security officer in corporate headquarters, the security officer has to be able to relate their observations in a court of law.
Many security officers are never trained about how the legal system works or what to expect. Their
first experience comes from receiving a courtroom subpoena and sitting on the witness stand. The
results can be a disaster.
Covered 6 has developed a program designed by former prosecutors and current practicing defense
attorneys. There is also the opportunity to have guest presenters who are current and retired judges
who can relate their knowledge and expertise.
This course covers what to expect from the time a subpoena is received to what kinds of questions
they can be asked on the witness stand. They are taught about the role of the prosecutor and the
defense attorney, and how to speak to the jury. They even get sworn in as a witness and an opportunity to testify in a mock trial setting. This course has a written test. A certificate will be issued upon successful completion.
