Enhanced Security Guard Training


The NYC Hospitality Alliance has been advocating for enhancing security guard training in nightlife establishments. Under NYS law, security guards are required to take the same training whether they are guarding a nightlife establishment or a pharmacy. Require security guards working in nightlife to receive enhanced training tailored for their work environment including de-escalation techniques related to intoxicated individuals, addressing sexual violence, harm reduction, active shooter, gender identity, etc.
