1. Their very presence is a deterrent.
Criminals are opportunistic. If there is a security guard present, chances are, a thief or armed robber will go off to find an easier target. Security guards are also able to identify and address suspicious behavior better than an average employee, helping to curb crime before it happens.
2. They can react instantly. Cameras can’t.
A security guard can patrol the premises and see where a security camera can’t reach. They are there to immediately address any problems before they escalate. Even if a camera catches suspicious activity, it means nothing if no one is monitoring the camera feed constantly.
3. They are your eyes when you can’t be there.
A security guard is trusted personnel assigned to your business when you or your employees can’t be there. Security guards are accustomed to being alert in off hours and can be the eyes and ears for your business in a way that regular employees just aren’t trained to do.
And, the next day, your security personnel can provide you with back reports of the past evenings so you are completely aware of what is going on at all times.
4. They are your liaison if there is an altercation.
If you’re running a busy business, it’s possible that you experience irate customers, or a public argument may spring up between customers. Sometimes, the simple threat of “I’m going to call security” is enough to cool down all the parties involved. If the security guard does need to be called, it can only help protect you and your business, and perhaps keep you safer from liability than if you were to step in to a fight yourself.
5. They do more than protect.
Security guards are important customer service providers. They can be there to greet visitors. They may provide parking services or campus escort services. The presence of security guards helps to exhibit your company’s dedication to protecting residents, guests, and employees.
