The reality is, crime and theft happens. Regularly. With the economy in a down turn, crime rates rise as people struggle to make ends meet. This results in petty theft and, in more serious cases, armed robbery.
Some businesses, such as convenience stores, banks and retail stores, may be more of a target for criminals and petty thieves than other types, but a wide variety of businesses choose to hire security guards.
Guards act as a visible deterrent, causing would-be thieves to avoid protected businesses and target those more vulnerable. They provide peace of mind and a sense of security to the business owner, employees and to customers.
Employees that work in high-risk areas are more productive and easier to retain when they donâ€™t have to worry about personal safety.
A security guard also lets customers know that you are concerned about their safety and willing to take steps to insure it. This may be particularly important for businesses that deal in very high-end merchandise or are located in high-crime areas.
Hawk Eye Protection personnel are trained to immediately recognise suspicious activity. They can assess a situation and react to security breaches. A guard is a greater visual deterrent than just camera surveillance or a standard security system. It sends a message to potential criminals that you are serious about the security of your business.
Our security guards can also act as customer service ambassadors, directing people to find products and get to the right location in a business.
They can also be available as escorts for customers and employees to get to their cars after dark. Hiring personable and capable guards, like those at Hawk Eye Protection, demonstrates that your business is secure and customer-oriented.
Not all security guards spend all their time on active patrol of a business property. A security professional may be employed to monitor video surveillance, check credentials, check for contraband or restrict access to an area.
A security guard may have specific goals, such as watching for shoplifters, keeping an eye on the grounds after hours, and opening or closing a business for the day.
These monitoring duties take a lot of security responsibility off the shoulders of the business owner and employees, and allows them to focus on their jobs.
