How Private Security Guards Can Help Secure Your Business and Customers

The Promise of Security

The presence of a security guard at a business provides peace of mind and a sense of security to the business owner, employees and customers. Employees, especially those that work in high-risk areas, are more productive and easier to retain when they do not have to worry about their personal safety. Visible security also lets customers know that you are concerned about their safety and willing to take steps to insure it. This is particularly important for businesses sensitive high value merchandise, service orientated high tech networking, specialized manufacturing of products or goods for distribution etc.


The mere presence of a security guard is a great deterrent to crime. Thieves will think twice about targeting a business that has uniformed protection and, look for a softer target. Our professional guards are trained to constantly look for suspicious activity on the spot. They can assess a situation and react immediately to security breaches. It is well established that a guard is a greater visual deterrent than just camera surveillance or a security alarm. It sends a message to potential criminals that you are serious about the security of your business, and that they are not welcome.

Customer Service

Good security guards can also be customer service ambassadors. A guard may sit at a front desk or act as a sentry to control building access. This can mean that there is regular interaction with customers and clients. Our guards can help direct people and get to the right location in a business. A guard can also be available as an escort for customers and employees to get to their cars after dark, which makes everyone feel better. Hiring Golden State Protective Services personable and capable guards lets you communicate that your business is secure and customer oriented.

Handling Suspected Crime

Security guards receive varying levels of training when it comes to actively responding to a crime, depending on the type of business. Some may simply take down details and contact the police. Others may be able to detain suspects. It is up to the business to decide whether to have an armed or unarmed guard, and what procedures should be in place for handling a suspect should a crime occur. Golden State Protective Service guards are trained to handle all levels of security. Hiring a trained and licensed guard from a reputable company ensures that the guard behaves capably and sensibly when faced with criminal activity on business premises.

Other Duties

Not all security guards spend their time on active patrol of a business property. A security professional can be employed to monitor video surveillance, check credentials, inspect for contraband, verify manifests, or restrict access to an area. A security guard should have specific goals, loss prevention, keeping an eye on the grounds after hours, and opening or closing a business for the day. These monitoring duties take most of the security responsibility off the shoulders of the business owner and their employees and, allows them to focus on their real jobs.
