Armed or Unarmed Security Officers
A balance must be struck between providing a safe environment, while also making sure that you and everyone around you feels more secure instead of less so. Will your customers feel safer when they see a gun? Or will people see an armed guard and think your business is a dangerous place to be? If you are considering a guard for your home or neighborhood, does this really require a firearm? You may say yes, and that could be true. Or, you may stop and think that no- it really doesn’t.
You may want to consider armed security if:
- The industry you are in demands one.
- Your area of town is more prone to crime.
- You’ve been targeted before.
- There’s no chance a child could get ahold of the gun.
An armed intruder attempting to kidnap a wealthy person in order to hold them ransom will only be stopped by a security guard with a gun. On the other hand, no one wants to eat an expensive dinner at a fancy restaurant and see someone walking around with a gun. Chances are good that your specific situations falls somewhere in between these two extremes. Reach out to Statewide Patrol and discuss your security needs with us, and we’ll work out together whether you need your security guard to be armed or unarmed. We can be reached the following ways:
