Benefits of Hiring a Security Guard


Visitors: 1,098

People have property and other investments that they wish to protect. A security guard can help to protect these things, as well as enforcing rules and laws and deterring other criminal activity. For one-time events it is possible to contract with a security guard service or with off-duty law enforcement officers. However, for ongoing needs there are benefits of hiring a security guard including potentially lower overall costs and greater control of scheduling, training in company policies and procedures, and the ability to enforce desired appearance. You have the option of hiring both armed and unarmed guards.

Security guards can perform many useful functions besides deterring theft and misbehavior. They can work at entry gates to prevent unauthorized access to facilities or to provide directions around the facility. If you have a need to receive packages, the security guard can act as an agent and provide an authorized signature. When there will be a large contingent of people on site guards can help with crowd control. In the event that there is some type of emergency they can direct people to areas of safety in an orderly fashion.

It is not necessary for a security guard to remain stationary. Duties may include making regular rounds of the property to inspect for fire hazards or other potential issues such as leaking pipes. These rounds can occur both during business hours and during off hours. Security guards can assist people who have run the batteries down in their cars. They can drive a golf cart or other vehicle with a battery charging system and can be notified with either a phone call or emergency button system.

Where there is a concern for protection against theft or vandalism, you may wish to incorporate the use of a security guard with a closed circuit television system. The guard can be situated in a control room that has a bank of screens. Just the presence of this type of system can create a significant reduction in the incidence of crime and loss of materials or property. As the security guard monitors the activities in each area he or she can communicate with people in that area through a speaker system. This type of service function is a situation in which it may be wise to hire an armed guard. Make sure that the candidate is properly trained, licensed and bonded to carry a firearm.
