5 Essential Tools for Security Guards
Your security guard is ready and willing to help you stay safe. This security is something they take very seriously. That being said, they cannot do their job without the right essential tools. Your security is not something to leave to chance; it is something to be absolutely sure of. In order to ensure our Austin, TX security guards can do their job adequately, we provide them with all of the following:
#1 Two way radio Communication is critical in order to keep everyone safe. That is why we make sure your bodyguard or personal protection office can contact someone immediately and easily. No cell service? No problem! They have two way radios as well.
#2 Smartphone More often than not, they’ll be reached or contact someone else with a new model smartphone. You want to be able to reach them when you need them. You want them to be able to contact the police or ambulance when it is needed. Of course, today’s phones do more than make calls. They can install apps that watch your security cameras at all times.
#3 First aid kit Your bodyguard isn’t a glorified fighter. They do much more than walk around and keep the bad guys away. Each of our security professionals also know basic first aid and has access to supplies like bandages, gauze, and alcohol sanitizer. The ability to administer this first aid to cuts, scrapes, or wounds while you wait for authorities to arrive is invaluable!
#4 Weapon Your personal protection officer can be armed or unarmed, whichever you think is needed and makes you feel more comfortable. Even if you choose an unarmed guard, that doesn’t mean they have nothing to protect you or themselves. Other weapons include pepper spray, batons, a tazer, and more. We train our personal protection officers to use batons and they are legally certified to use them.
#5 Handcuffs All of our bodyguards are able and certified to use handcuffs. This means if someone breaks in or tries to attack you (or both!) your bodyguard can retain them while you wait for the police to arrive and arrest them. This takes a special skill as well as the legal right to do it, which our professionals have.
When you hire Statewide Patrol for your security needs, your safety is never something that is left to chance. We give our bodyguards and personal protection officers anything and everything they need. You can count on that!
