Accordiong to news, security guards - rated on  the #23 place among best social service jobs. Here is what they say: 

" Security guards face serious responsibilities on a daily basis: They protect people against fire, theft, vandalism, terrorism and other illegal and dangerous threats. Security guards ensure safety by actively patrolling or using security systems to keep a watchful eye over a facility. Like police officers, many security guards are armed with weapons. Specific tasks vary by setting: Transportation guards use detectors to screen passengers, while security guards at casinos look out for cheating and underage gamblers. Although movies give security guards a bad rap by depicting frequent snoozing on the job, in reality there’s little down time in this line of work, as guards must remain alert to watch for any suspicious activity." 

"The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a steady job growth of 5 percent for the profession between 2014 and 2024, as concern about crime, vandalism and terrorism continue to increase the need for security. During that time period, the BLS expects that 55,500 new jobs will be added."
