The Prevention of Crimes
Security guards are trained in what to look for and how to properly handle suspicious individuals and activity. This can drastically reduce the risk of crime on the premise of your business and mitigate damages to the property. Security guards also add the presence of authority which can often deter many would-be perpetrators and prevent crimes before they actually happen. In addition, individuals with an intent to commit a crime will usually target businesses and properties that are absent of security.
Security guards are there to Observe, Report and Protect. Their added presence is clear and with purpose adding an immediate response to a multitude of possible scenarios. Many security guard companies are adequately trained from crowd control to de-escalating situations resulting in prevention of hostility.
With critical thinking and situational awareness, security guards are always on point. Whereas, without security, an individual may become complacent which can result in overlooking and often missing unusual behavior. Being aware is an ongoing process, security guards are a positive and proactive approach.
Improved Customer Services
Security guards in many ways can improve your customer service and, more often than not, often go hand and hand with security. Whether it is protecting your property or the protection of those who frequent your business, customer service is always at the forefront. It is always about the customer after all.
As security, it is their job and duty to protect and secure the property and everyone within the premises, keeping everyone safe. As such, you can often find security conversing with employees and clients, greeting customers and building rapport as they ask how they can be of assistance. A security guard's primary task is to protect and to secure, however a guard can act as a point of contact for clients and customers and can have a lasting first impression for a business.

Security guards use sound judgement when protecting assets as well as assessing any given situation before acting with proficiency and containing any given situation before it escalates.
With the environment of threats that can change rapidly. Having someone trained and capable of handling any form of crises, medical or other, and able to navigate with effectiveness under pressure when every minute counts can be crucial.

There is nothing more important than the safety of you and others. As such, security guards play a very important role in the protection and safety of communities. So if you feel that you may need security, then there is no time to waste.
Security working with the community and the law enforcement together creates a safer environment for all so that we all can focus more on enjoying life and what matters most to us.
