Alarms and security cameras do great work at keeping your business safe. However, to get the best protection for your company, you should consider contracting a private security guard. Read on for a few for the numerous benefits of having a guard onsite at your business.


Security guard training varies, depending on client needs and their years of experience. Overall, their main focus is to protect your business, including your assets, employees and your customers. Businesses, customers and employee vehicles will be safe in the parking lot and your merchandise and other assets will be protected from theft. In the event of a dangerous situation, your private security guard will take the lead and keep your people safe until the police arrive.

Trained Professional Onsite

Emergency situations can happen at any business and your employees may only be trained to deal with specific types of emergencies. Private security guards are trained to respond to a variety of emergencies and will take appropriate action when they arise.


Uniforms are a strong deterrence. Just the sight of a security guard’s uniform makes criminals think twice, especially when considering the advanced training and education security guards receive. Additionally, a security guard in your business will also help deter employee misconduct.

Sense of Security

Your employees and customers shouldn’t have to worry about their safety while they’re at work or shopping. Let a security professional do the worrying for them. With a guard onsite, both your employees and customers will feel more at ease and protected.

Police Liaison

When a situation needing the police occurs, you want someone onsite who can speak clearly and effectively with the authorities. Security guards are trained to do/ just that. They know what to say to police and how to say it, which, in turn, helps get situations resolved faster and more efficiently.
