Have you ever considered becoming a private security guard? If you’ve ever wondered about the job before, you may have also wondered if it’s a reliable career choice- are security guards really in demand? The answer is yes! Not only can the job be extremely rewarding, but the demand continues to increase with no signs of stopping. More and more businesses and private property owners are discovering that having safety and security needs met is invaluable, and in many cases hiring a guard service can even boost business! Some reasons why security guards are in demand are:
- Private security presence gives people peace of mind. Knowing that someone is posted specifically to keep an eye out for trouble means less time worrying!
- Security guards are an excellent deterrent; people are way less likely to commit crimes or cause trouble if they see guards posted. By simply being present at a location, a security guard can be preventing burglaries, shoplifting, vandalism and other crimes.
- In the workplace, employees can be more productive with the added sense of security brought by guards, and in turn, can provide better customer service.
- For businesses that operate at night, guards can ensure that the parking lots are safe and that employees feel secure when walking to their cars, collecting carts or assisting customers.
- Security guards provide customer service, giving directions, escorting or assisting customers, which makes them extremely valuable at event venues.
- While having security cameras in place is a great deterrent, posting guards is more effective, as issues can be dealt with instantly, in real time.
- Issues can be dealt with proactively, rather than reactively, minimizing the amount of trouble, time and resources for everyone.
