PSPA is an Interactive (on-line) Membership Based Security Organization.

Established in 2010, PSPA was founded for the betterment of the private security industry, its practitioners, and end users, which include: Private Security Professionals, the Employers of Private Security Professionals, and the Clients who contract services of Private Security Agencies.

PSPA understands that Private Security plays a significant role in the day-to-day protection of people and assets. The steadfast growth in Private Security coupled with the broadened responsibilities placed upon the Private Security sector, further necessitates the effective hiring, training and deployment of educated security personnel to accomplish the needs of the industry and those served by the industry. 

To this end, PSPA has developed (and where applicable is State licensed to administer) a comprehensive library of TrainingCertification, and Continuing Education (CE) Programs for Private Security (Officers, Supervisors, and Managers) in addition to Employers and Clients who: own, manage, oversee and/or engage security programs, security personnel or life safety services.
