One Shocking Trait that Makes Security Guards Great at Their Jobs

The security guard you want protecting you and your family is calm and often quiet.

Surprised? People often assume security guards are aggressive and loud. But, that isn’t true of the best guardians, who are often quiet, but observant.

While there are many qualities you might want in your neighborhood custodian, calm is at the top of our list. Here’s why it should be at the top of yours too.

When details matter, guards need to communicate them quick and accurately. Yet, high levels of adrenaline can cause forgetfulness in threatening situations. Guards trained to be calm in adrenaline provoking situations notice more details. Reporting them fast and correct to fellow security guards and law enforcement. Their swift communication shortens the time it takes for backup to arrive and prevents other problems from occurring.

Calmness is critical in times of action, too. Calm security guards keep composure, diffusing a situation instead of antagonizing an intruder. With this skill, they have greater management over the situation. Their aim is to maintain safety, catching a criminal is secondary. They are cautious at every step and think before they act. Even a few moments of reserve help guards make the right decisions and mistakes are avoided. Calmer guards also recall their training when they need it. They follow essential protocol instead of reacting rogue when energized and fearful. We train our security professionals to handle any situation in an effective and safe way. We know they use it on duty.

Most importantly, calm guards give you a sense of safety in times of both peace and panic. Aggressive security guards can make you feel fearful and anxious. A guard’s role is to defend you when situations arise, but also to give you a sense of protection daily. You should never feel like danger is around the corner, you should feel that it’s prevented. When trouble does arise, their calm demeanor is comforting. You’ll be reassured that all proper steps were taken and that you’re now safe.

At Weinstein Security, calmness is non-negotiable. The men and women that protect our communities must possess it.
