Do Security Guards Have To Identify Themselves
Should a security guard identify himself when asked?
It depends on what your identity means. Do you intend to identify or name yourself as a security guard? Although there is no law requiring citizens to identify themselves with other private individuals, this may be necessary if the action results in some kind of civil or legal action. Uniformed guards can now be identified by their uniforms. But if we say accident prevention, then in case of arrests or disputes, they should at least identify themselves as security forces. There is no need to name names, but to ensure smooth operation and avoid further conflicts, companies should, if necessary, identify their employees.
I had to do this once because some people from the company I was in charge of security turned off the alarm. I had to prove to the police that I was a bodyguard and they talked to my boss and fired me.
Security guards who work for private companies (such as factories, supermarkets, etc.) are not required to reveal their first / last name.
