They have the ability to quickly assess a situation and react immediately to security breaches.
  • Customer Service – Expert security guards can provide more than just protection to your business by also becoming trusted customer service ambassadors. Their regular interaction with customers and clients from their location at a front desk or in the entrance of buildings can allow them to help direct customers in large stores, locate products and even escort them to their cars after dark.

  • Well-Rounded – A professional security guard will not only spend their time on active patrol of a business property but may also be responsible for monitoring video surveillance, checking credentials, carrying out inspections for contraband, verifying manifests, and restricting access to certain areas. With their wide range of skills, business owners determine the specific duties they wish the security guards to perform, be it watching for shoplifters, implementing loss prevention techniques, keeping an eye on the grounds after hours, and opening or closing a business for the day, all of which allows the business owner to focus on the smooth running of their business.
