MAGEN Chicago SSO Candidate Sponsorship
We aid in vetting proper candidates for this rigorous volunteer program. The vetting process includes initial and random drug screening, a comprehensive criminal background investigation, psychological screening, personal insurance requirements, and credential verification.
Our medical training, taught by the top-tier military, law enforcement, and medical personnel, covers critical lifesaving skills such as Stop the Bleed Certification, CPR & AED Certification, and Tactical Emergency Casualty Care training.
Greeter / Screener Training
Topics covered include awareness and preparedness skills, criminal and civil law, use of force by civilians, psychology and de-escalation, soft interrogation skills, scenario-based training, spotting hidden weapons, non-lethal defense options, and much more.
We offer multi-level defensive firearms training and certifications modeled after law enforcement training modules and taught by law enforcement firearms instructors. Upon successful completion of the program, volunteers will have accrued more than 40 hours of firearms training provided to recruits at police academies in Illinois.
SSOs will have opportunities to participate in additional advanced training seminars and courses with expert instructors from law enforcement, military, and contract security backgrounds, along with a required annual review of their credentials and renewal of their qualifications.
