Why Businesses Should Consider Unarmed Security Guards

You own a business and want that business to thrive. You don’t want people stealing from or harming your business. Ideally, your business is a peaceful, calm place with a sense of order and security. Consider hiring an unarmed security guard from C.O.P. Security for your business.

Security GuardTo ensure the overall safety of your business, which includes physical property, employees, clients and visitors, it makes sense to hire an unarmed security guard. He or she is an affordable set of eyes who can watch over things for you. A guard can offer people directions so they know where to go (and where not to go) as well as serve as a “go-to” contact should any conflict or problem out of the ordinary arise.

Armed guards may cost more because they have to be licensed and trained to carry firearms. What happens if their gun accidentally goes off, for whatever reason, and hurts or kills someone at your business? Obviously, that’s not the ideal situation. Therefore, for most businesses, unarmed guards make the most sense.

If you have a business that’s in a “low-risk environment,” then unarmed guards’ skills and expertise will do well to help resolve occasional conflicts and keep your business safe. For instance, having an unarmed guard on duty helps deter theft and vandalism. People “up to no good” would rather go somewhere that’s not being watched! A kid with a spray can will think twice before tagging a building that has a uniformed security guard patrolling the grounds.

Furthermore, having a guard on the premises of your business acts as a sign that you care about the safety and well-being of everybody on the property. Having the guard interact with people provides a sense of calm and peace that puts them at ease. It’s reassuring knowing that someone is watching over the room, building or property– they’re there “if they’re needed.” Guards can also help with crowd control.

C.O.P. Security can provide businesses in Western New York (including Buffalo, Batavia, and Rochester) with unarmed security guards as needed. Please call 585-750-5608 or email rbarton@copsecuritycorp.com for details.
