Unarmed Security Guard - Denver
Twin City Security in Denver provides Excellent Unarmed Security
Security guards do not need to carry arms to protect most facilities. Training and getting permits for security guards to carry a weapon is expensive. If you manage a building in the Denver area and you are considering armed guards or unarmed guards consider the following three questions.
Is your facility in a location with rampant violent crime and burglaries?
Does your facility typically have large amounts of cash, jewels or pharmaceuticals?
Does your facility house top secret sensitive information?
If you answered no to all three questions, unarmed security is a very practical security solution.
What Does Unarmed Security Do?
Unarmed security has four main purposes:
Deterring property crimes such as theft and vandalism. Thieves and vandals don't like a challenge. They rarely target places with a visible, uniformed security guard.
Providing peace of mind to people. Everybody feels better knowing that someone is watching out for their safety. Employees work harder and customers buy more when they feel relaxed and secure.
Maintaining facility emergency preparation. A security guard will check alarm systems, create loss prevention plans, and aid in evacuation procedures.
Responding immediately to any incident. A quick response is critical medical emergencies, fires, and security breaches. It can mean the difference between life and death in some instances.
