When Are Unarmed Security Guards Used?

Not every situation presents a significant security threat. Capable unarmed security companies like The Guard Alliance can provide the perfect solution for low-risk environments where it’s important to have an unobtrusive security presence for deterrence or response requirements. One example of when an unarmed guard can be beneficial is when you want a visible security presence. Having one or more of these professionals patrol a property lets others know that someone is there to watch for and monitor suspicious activities and respond or call for additional help in an emergency.

In these circumstances, the guard serves as a first line of defense. An unarmed guard can also take a more active security stance. This trained individual can sit in a vehicle outside a property and use video surveillance to record events over a designated time frame. If a suspicious situation or a crime occurs, the recordings could serve as evidence during arrest and court proceedings. These guards can intercede to stop a potential threat before it escalates. They can also intercept trespassers or other uninvited guests to determine their reason for being on the property.

Why Do Businesses Hire Unarmed Security Guards?

Protecting valuable assets is a primary reason many businesses hire unarmed security guard companies. Their presence can reduce the risk of property theft and robberies, especially for operations that keep cash receipts on the premises. They also get more peace of mind knowing that a trained professional is there to monitor activities and respond to situations promptly when needed. Some businesses prefer an unarmed guard to one carrying a weapon to avoid making customers feel intimidated or unwelcome. A well-trained professional often knows how to defuse a situation without police involvement, which reduces the likelihood of upsetting the regular clientele and giving the company an unsavory reputation within the community. A company could even use a guard for customer service purposes. Besides providing security, the individual can answer questions or give directions to visitors. The person in this role should possess strong interpersonal skills, be courteous and present a professional image.
