What’s Ahead

A very large number of jobs are expected to arise in this field as the gaming industry continues to grow. With more and more states legalizing slots and table games, concerns about crime, vandalism, and terrorism will continue to increase demand for gaming surveillance and investigation.

Casino security forces will employ more technically trained personnel as technology becomes increasingly important in thwarting casino cheating and theft.

Specialized Degrees

Employers prefer to hire security guards with some higher education, such as a police science or criminal justice degree, and also encourage applicants to take programs and courses available at some postsecondary schools that focus specifically on security guards.
