Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most security guard opportunities?

Every State is hireing Security Guards in abundance, with the war on Terror seemingly haveing no end in site. But the good money seems to be in Washington,DC, California, and New York. and Arizona, speaking of Arizona thats where the Superbowl is going to be in 2008 a Security Company called Allied Barton has the Security contract. downside?: you have to pay for your own transportation for training and hotel (7days). and then pay to go back down there if you take the (1)day position, but hey, you will be at the Superbowl. pay starts at $11.00per hr.Even though Allied Barton is nationwide you have to apply at the one in Arizona.

This industry is on the rise in every category from armed guards to private investigations. Only night watchmen type officers, with more and more people obtaining electronic security systems, is mot as dynamic.
