Security Guards & Their Uses
Security guards are incredibly important. There is nothing that can match the hands-on, visible and versatile presence of a solo member or a team of security guards. What are the advantages of security guards? They are on-site at all times. They use their senses to see and hear exactly what is going on at your location or your event. Their training gives them the unique ability to evaluate the current situation at hand and determine the correct course of action. Security guards are mobile, quick thinking and adaptable.
While other tools such as surveillance cameras and alarm systems are vital to security, security guards offer several distinct advantages that make them irreplaceable. There is simply no substitute for security guards.
What Security Guards Can Do
Security guards are specially-trained to deal with a wide variety of different situations. Regardless of your security needs, you can put your trust in experienced, dedicated and knowledgeable security guards and SafeTech Security. SafeTech offers trained security officers for nearly every situation you can think of. We ensure that all of our guards are prepared to handle a comprehensive array of real-world situations with tact and professionalism. In addition, we make sure that all security guards receive the most comprehensive support and training available.
One of the huge benefits of security guards is that they are able to not only analyze the current situation from the ground, but they are also trained to react immediately in the most effective way possible. On occasion this involves communicating with our security dispatch team via telephone, email or text message. Our comprehensive support system gives SafeTech security guards the ability to conduct research, request additional resources and the opportunity to further analyze a situation from any location.
Security guards have the knowledge needed to know exactly how to react to any situation almost immediately. Rather than having to wait for the authorities to arrive before an investigation can begin, security guards can immediately begin to take the necessary steps to keep your property or your event safe. For example, when mobile security guards conduct mobile patrols in specially-marked security cars, they carefully examine the site that they are visiting for any potential issues.
A security guard who arrives at a scene and finds that a ground floor window of an office building has been left open, for example, will immediately recognize this as a potential security threat. Security guards are trained to then investigate further to ensure that there is no crime and progress or that a crime has not already taken place. Once this investigation is completed, security guards will contact the appropriate emergency contact (as well as the police, if necessary) and inform him or her that a windowhas been left open and that the threat of a break-in is therefore greater than usual. The emergency contact will then decide which steps should be taken (for example, closing the window.) Had security guards not been on scene during this scenario, the window likely would have remained open all night and someone could have easily broken into the office.
Another example of how security guards provide an immediate response can been seen at almost any public event. Security guards are especially important at ticketed events where access is restricted. If, for example, a member of the public is attempting to enter an event without permission (perhaps without a ticket or without paying the required admission fee) security guards are able to react immediately to defuse the situation by escorting this individual away from the event quickly and professionally. Had the security guards not been present and had they not received the correct training that allowed them to properly handle the situation, the scenario mentioned could have gotten much worse. The patron could have become unruly, other people could have gotten involved and possibly injured or the event staff could have become distracted and therefore ignored other pressing issues. Having trained and experienced security guards on scene solves a problem such as the one outlined immediately before the situation escalates.
Trust Security Guards
Whether you are hosting an event, wishing to protect an office or warehouse, hoping to properly manage access to an apartment or condominium or whether you are in another situation entirely that requires security, guards will help ensure that everything runs smoothly. Security guards understand exactly how to react to a number of different scenarios and they know how to make quick decisions that stop potential problems before they intensify. You can trust security guards to keep order, balance a variety of different tasks and handle any situation that is thrown at them.
