Security Guard Resignation Letter Sample

November 3, 2019

So it is that time in your life when you have to leave your job and move on – maybe to greener pastures.

Maybe not move on at all, but to simply stop and take some time out for yourself. Time to say goodbye to a job that you have loved. Time to write a resignation letter.


Writing resignation letters can be bittersweet events. It all depends on why we are resigning and what we intend to do with ourselves once we have given up a job.

There are many situations that can warrant a resignation including:

• A better offer in another company
• A physical move to another state, city or country
• Forced retirement
• Voluntary retirement
• Illness

The resignation letter that you write has to be according to what your reasons are.


Honesty is of course appreciated but if you are moving to another company because the pay is better, you can hardly say so!

A Security Guard resignation letter includes:

• Statement of intention to resign
• Notice period
• Explanation of why you are resigning
• Something positive about your experiences in the company
• A thank you sentence

Take a look at the following sample resignation letter (from a security guard position):

Mr. Julian Treble
Human Resource Manager
Curtain Fall Security Services
2938 Orange Ave
Nantucket, MA 02582


Dear Mr. Treble:

I am writing this letter to inform you of my decision to resign from my position as a security guard for Curtain Fall Security Services. In keeping with the terms of my contract, please consider this as a two weeks’ notice of my intention to leave. November 16 will be my last working day.

I cannot write the words that will explain how grateful I am for the experience that you have provided to me over the 15 years. However, due to my dwindling health, I can no longer meet the demands of this very challenging job. A security guard has to be alert and on his feet at all times, both of which I am finding quite difficult to do.

I find myself hoping that I have returned the favor somewhat. I will be in touch with you regarding my resignation documents and financial settlements soon and to discuss if there is anything that you would like me to do in order to help you train my replacement.
