Small businesses have to deal with the reality that theft and other crimes can occur on business premises. Guards can be used to prevent crime, maintain security, and assist customers and employees. The benefits of having security guards at your business include:

Sense of Security – The presence of a security guard at a business can provide peace of mind and a sense of security to the business owner, employees and customers.

PreventionSimply having a security guard present is a great deterrent to crime. Professional guards are trained to look for suspicious activity on the spot. They can assess a situation and react to security breaches. A guard is a greater visual deterrent than just camera surveillance or a standard security system.

Customer ServiceA guard may man a front desk or act as a sentry to control access to an area. This can mean that there is a substantial amount of interaction with customers and clients. Guards may be able to help direct people to find products and get to the right location in a business.

Handling CrimeSecurity guards can receive varying levels of training when it comes to actively responding to a crime. Hiring a trained and licensed guard from a reputable company such as Glad Group can ensure that the guard behaves capably and sensibly when faced with criminal activity on business premises.

MonitoringA security professional may be employed to monitor video surveillance, check credentials, check for contraband or restrict access to an area. These monitoring duties take a lot of security responsibility off the shoulders of the business owner, employees, and allow them time to focus on their jobs.
