3 Situations Where You Need a Security Guard
While our Fort Worth police do a good job keeping us all safe, they cannot be everywhere at all times. There are many situations in which a trained, licensed, and experienced security guard is needed. Consider the following:
#1 Crowd Control
Whether it’s a rally, concert, sporting event, parade, protest, or a charity event, a big crowd means some rowdy people will attend. At their best, they can be loud and disruptive. But at worst, they can be emotionally unstable and a potential danger to themselves and others, making others at the event worried and even fearful. With a trained security guard in the area, everyone can feel a bit better about the situation because it will be handled the right way. Security guards are well trained to deal with any potential threat, so for any person who needs to be removed from the area for whatever reason, this professional will safely escort them away. This way, your business or event is safe and comfortable for everyone in the area.
#2 Vandalism and Looting
If you’ve watched the news lately, you can see that there’s a lot of damage being done to businesses, buildings, statues, and cars by people who are angry. If you’re worried about your premises, hiring a security guard is a good idea. No one wants to clean up broken windows, trashed entrances, and vulgar phrases spray-painted on walls. Some people are breaking in and stealing items. They’re even lighting stuff on fire! Remember, vandalism and looting are rarely a premeditated crime. Anyone looking to cause some trouble will see a security guard at your business and move past your business.
#3 Potential Violence
A security guard is an incredibly useful deterrent against the property crimes listed above, as well as seriously violent ones. On occasion, there is a potential for major violence against your business or event. Even before this summer’s unrest, there were tragically frequent occurrences of mass shootings in this country. A private security company can provide armed security officers that will protect you, those on your premises, and your property from a major act of violence. You will never want to imagine such violence happening to you or anyone around you, but this is the world we live in. The presence of a security guard could save a lot of lives, including yours!
