Size Doesn't Matter
Regardless of the size or type of business you own, there are going to be security issues that concern you. Small businesses have to deal with the reality that thefts and other crimes can occur on business premises. Some businesses, such as convenience stores, banks and retail stores, may be more of a target for criminals and petty thieves than other types, but a wide variety of businesses choose to hire security guards.
Why Have Security?
Guards can be used to prevent crime, maintain security, and assist customers and employees. Professional guards are trained to look for suspicious activity and criminals will think twice about targeting a business that has uniformed protection. Below are just some of the benefits of hiring a security company that business owners should assess.
Security guards minimize theft. Often the mere presence of a security guard will deter patrons and professionals from stealing. A guard is a greater visual deterrent than just camera surveillance or a standard security system. It sends a message to potential criminals that you are serious about the security of your business. Additionally, if a theft does occur, security guards are properly trained to apprehend suspects, create loss prevention reports, and correctly store evidence so that it may be used in court. Furthermore, the nature of their job often requires testifying and security guards are often reliable and strong witnesses.
The presence of a security guard at a business can provide peace of mind and a sense of security to not only the business owner, but to employees and customers, especially if it is in an undesirable area. Patrons will feel more secure and therefore, more likely to shop if they know that the proprietor is concerned about their safety. Employees that work in high-risk areas are more productive and easier to retain when they don’t have to worry about personal safety. Additionally, security guards can also inspect your premises and make recommendations that will minimize your risks of theft and accidents.
Security is often called when an accident occurs in the store. In some businesses, security staff roams the floors to ensure there are no thefts or accidents, but in others they use cameras. If an accident occurs, security can get to the site promptly, interview the victim and check the area for any obstructions or safety hazards. They are trained in creating accident reports which the victim and security officer can sign. Guards may also take a statement of what occurred from the injured person, and they can record whether the person had any complaints or visible injuries. A security guard can minimize your exposure in lawsuits and verify that you are not at fault, thereby saving money.
