The peace of mind that comes with security services is immediate and lasting. There is no substitute for physical and emotional assurance that you are protected – whether that is you individually, family, assets, or your business and its employees. Security officers deliver a sense of protection by providing a critical skill set in tense and threatening situations.

  1. PREVENT CRIMES: Security officers offer a physical visual deterrent from crime. The presence of even one officer will dramatically reduce the rates of crime and prevent the likelihood of an assailant inflicting harm. When security personnel catch someone causing trouble on your property, they can intercept and stop the perpetrator immediately.
  2. ADD A SENSE OF HEIGHTENED AWARENESS: Security officers offer an extra pair of eyes and ears at all times. Their presence is purposeful and distinct in providing immediate action in a multitude of possible scenarios, from de-escalating a situation to deterring hostility. Security cultivates situational awareness and maintains balance.
  3. IMPROVE CUSTOMER SERVICE: In many ways, a security officer job and customer service go hand in hand. When it comes to protecting property or a person, it is always about the customer. It is their job to keep customers safe, and in doing so you often find yourself chatting with customers to ask how they are and how you can help them. The better you listen to customers, the more successful you are at serving those around you.
  4. PROVIDE A QUICK RESPONSE TIME: The reaction of security is immediate; every second counts when it comes to incident response. It is paramount that the threat is discovered and remediated as quickly as possible. Security is crucial in gaining control of a situation while awaiting the arrival of the police or emergency medical services.
  5. HANDLE SECURITY ISSUES IN AN EFFICIENT MANNER: Security uses clear judgment to protect the asset and assess the situation for the best means of action. The difference between an incident being detected and remediated in two minutes versus two hours could be the difference between life and death.
  6. CREATE A SAFE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT: The mere presence of security helps maintain a safe business environment. It is a welcomed addition regardless if the industry is in retail, office, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals or events. Knowing security is near provides a sense of safety and assurance to employees and customers.
  7. HAVE SOMEONE ON SITE WHO CAN HANDLE SECURITY MATTERS: An emergency is often met with a team of responders that may include security personnel, law enforcement, fire department and medical personnel. Security is not only familiar with communicating well with each department, but they are also trained to handle the complexities of clear reporting and emergency response.
  8. REDUCE YOUR STRESS LEVELS: Professional security officers handle unpleasant situations you would feel less comfortable in dealing with. Knowing that you or your business is protected provides peace of mind so you can rest easier.

There is nothing more important than the safety of you and others. Security is the backbone of community safety. If you need security, there is no time to waste. We at GDX Group bring our best to every assignment.
