Does armed security look good on a police application?

Generally cops don't respect security officers, but it's still probably the most related job to it aside from military police.

Armed Security shows a level of responsibility with firearms, yes. But it is not like putting presidential commendations on your resume.

Military police isn't as highly regarded as you might think since dealing with military personnel and civilians are like night and day. There are armed and unarmed security that wear ballistic vests. Security is a great foot in the door no matter what anyone says.
