Much like everything else, the security of lives and properties is necessary. Hence, security companies and service providers are important players in the welfare of people, especially in public spaces. Security officers are essentially responsible for keeping people safe, averting danger, avoiding casualties, and responding to emergencies. This is why they are often found everywhere – schools, clubs, office buildings, shopping malls, parks, and recreation centers.
Although security officers are often compared to police officers, there’s a clear distinction between the two. Most times, police officers typically intervene after the incident, but on-site security officers try to prevent crime and violence just by being present.
All over the world, security companies work round the clock to offer consistent security service to lives and assets. Some essential services security companies provide include:
Unarmed and Armed Security
Unarmed security officers perform close monitoring of a property and also secure assigned premises. It is also a part of their essential duties to oversee surveillance equipment, inspect buildings, assess security risks, and secure gates/entry points in their places of assignment. They are trained and certified to employ proactive security tactics to prevent losses and damage to properties. On the other hand, armed security personnel are those who have the license to bear arms and protect highly valuable goods.
Security companies also guard high-level individuals – such as CEOs, politicians, public figures, and company executives – who may face threats because of their celebrity status, wealth, or political affiliation. Executive protection may be in the form of a security officer or personal bodyguard who is assigned to such a top-level executive. However, executive protection may also be provided by a team of security agents, who work in synergy with a corporate organization to identify what possible security threats exist and which of the executives need security.
Security companies also provide security consultations for personal properties or corporate organizations. They offer professional advice and technical insights on best strategies to protect business, property, and employees with minimal risks. They oversee the installation and deployment of up-to-date security hardware such as CCTV (closed-circuit television), motion detection systems, alarm systems, sensors, perimeter fences, and burglary protection systems for enhanced protection of lives and properties.
Undercover Investigations and Surveillance
Security companies also offer secret investigation and surveillance for clients who may require evidence or information on an entity of interest. This kind of discreet surveillance may be necessary for different reasons, such as to gather proof or gain top-secret information while the aim of an undercover investigation is usually to expose suspicious behavior or activity.
Mobile Patrol Services
Essentially, mobile patrol security officers work in corporate organizations like banks, financial institutions, and other companies that may require these services for 24/7 quick emergency response. They are often responsible for locking and opening premises, adjusting alarms, checking access points, and ensuring round-the-clock security of buildings and facilities. They also liaise with maintenance staff and contractors and perform random perimeter patrols to check for suspicious activity and report any potential security issues.
