Security guards provide safety and security for individuals and facilities. Their duties may include making rounds to check doors and other access points, removing unruly people from the premises, denying entry to unauthorized personnel, monitoring closed-circuit security feeds, as well as many others. Typically, security guards deal with issues related to trespassing, burglary, theft, or threats to their clients. A high-level business analysis is performed to identify the needs and risks and create an extensive security plan to address them.
Our security services are available for all industries including commercial, industrial, medical, hospitality and residential areas. If a business or organization feels they need added protection, they hire security guards to ensure the safety of themselves, their clients, and their business.
Security guards are not officers of the state and thus do not have the same arrest and detention powers and authority a police officer. They may, however, temporarily detain someone on the property they are responsible for until law enforcement arrives to investigate a situation. If a crime occurs on the premises, the police handle all arrests. But often police work with security to gather evidence during the investigation.
A job as a security guard is a great way to build a resume and get the experience you need if you have goals in criminal justice or criminology.
Security also offers an excellent opportunity to protect and serve others in your community.
Police officers and other law enforcement agents are trained to intervene and respond when crime and violence happens. Security guards adopt a preventive approach. They prevent risks and deter crime, watch out for looming danger, and report on any suspicious or unusual activity. All the duties performed by a security guard are aimed at one crucial objective - the prevention of crime.
Being a security guard is an outstanding job, and you should take pride in it. You should strive to be the best security guard that you can be. Whether you work at a mall or manufacturing facility, your job is critical. Your responsibility is to be vigilant and to protect your clientele.
