Asset Protection Security Guards

Asset Protection Security Guards

Preventing crime There are many different types of security guards for businesses and lots of ways that guards can help your business to stay secure. While some security guards work to keep people safe, keeping items safe is important too. If you are worried about the physical items within your business, you should consider asset protection security guards. This subset of security is exactly what it sounds like. Rather, asset protection security guards work to make sure that the assets of the business remain safe and secure. What they do Asset protection security guards have a variety of roles and responsibilities. Their overall goal is to monitor places that hold valuable items, such as stores, distribution centers and/or corporate facilities. By having guards stationed at these places, the rate of crime can be reduced. Furthermore, asset protection security guards can assist with managing investigations related to crime within the business. This may include fraud, theft, safety or workplace violence. While asset protection security guards do not replace police, they can help with investigations by being a consistent presence of authority at the workplace. Asset protection security guards will work with a business to learn about its mission and values and help to promote these ideals within the business.

But, guards also want to enhance the overall experience of customers and employees at the business. This, in turn can create a better work environment for everyone.

Gated Community Security

Gated Community Security

Your home is your safe place Your home should be the place that you feel the most safe, right? A lot of homeowners would agree with this statement, and that’s why gated communities are often appealing. The added feature of a gate gives many residents peace of mind in knowing that there is a physical barrier between them and criminals. And, it is true. Having a gate does deter some criminals from committing crimes, but there are two very different types of gated communities. Read on to find out more, and how you can best protect yourself with gated community security. Gates with no guards A lot of communities have a gated entrance that is purely decorative. Rather, there will be an attractive looking gate at the entrance of the community, but it’s just for show. This mostly is for homeowners to feel proud of where they live and make an impression on guests. While attractive, decorative gates offer zero gated community security and could actually be alluring to criminals. A decoration like this indicates that the homes are nice and may be filled with valuable items. Another type of gated community with no guards is a keypad gate. With these, you and your guests will have a special code in order to enter the property. While this is definitely a step up from decorative gates, it’s probably pretty easy to find out the code if you really wanted it. Simply watching someone enter in their code, or even sneaking in behind a car that is entering are easy things that a criminal can do if they really want...
Theft Prevention in Gated Communities

Theft Prevention in Gated Communities

Staying safe If you live in a gated community you may assume that you are perfectly well protected because of the physical barriers that surround your home. However, this is a false assumption. Gates can certainly deter some criminals, but they may also beckon other ones. Why? If you live in a gated community they may assume that you have more valuable items that can be susceptible to theft. How can gated communities be made safer? The answer is security guards. Guards can help to promote theft prevention in gated communities. How it works If you’ve ever been to a gated community, you may have come across some that have a guard station next to the gate. Others just have a system where the gate opens if you enter a code. In communities with actual guards, the guard will monitor everyone who enters the community. So, if you are a guest or a visitor, often times the guard will ask you to check in with your name and your purpose of visiting. Sometimes they even write down your license plate number and/or ask for identification. This process can make people who live in gated communities feel safe. But, does it lead to theft prevention in gated communities? The result The answers may vary. For example, criminals can live inside the community itself, or a visitor could commit a crime. One thing is for sure though. Having the physical presence of a guard is much better for theft prevention in gated communities. With the keypad option, anyone can learn the keypad. This could be someone who has visited in the...
