Small businesses often come face-to-face with the fact that thefts and other criminal activities are quite common on their premises. While some businesses like convenience stores, retail stores, and late-night fast food joints are more susceptible to petty thieves and criminals, many different kinds of businesses choose to employ security guards. Security guards are deployed to deter crime, ensure safety, instill confidence, and aid both customers and employees. Prior to engaging a security company, business proprietors should evaluate the numerous advantages of hiring a security guard.

Having a security guard on-site at a business is a valuable asset that can bring a sense of calm and safety to both the business owner and their customers. With the presence of a security guard, employees, especially those working in high-risk areas, can work more productively and feel secure in the knowledge that their personal safety is being prioritized. Additionally, having visible security measures in place can communicate to customers that their safety is of utmost importance to the business, which can be especially reassuring for businesses located in high-crime areas or those dealing with high-value merchandise such as jewelry.

The presence of a security guard alone can effectively deter criminal activity. The sight of uniformed protection can dissuade thieves from targeting a business, causing them to search for an easier target. Our team of professional guards are well-versed in identifying suspicious activity, allowing them to quickly assess a situation and react in the event of a security breach. Research has shown that a security guard is a more powerful visual deterrent than relying solely on camera surveillance or a security alarm. It sends a clear message to potential criminals that you prioritize the security of your business and that criminal activity will not be tolerated.

In addition to providing security, skilled security guards can also serve as customer service ambassadors. Whether stationed at a front desk or as a sentry managing building access, guards may interact regularly with customers and clients. Our guards are trained to assist in directing individuals to the right location within the business and help them find products. Additionally, they can provide escort services for customers and employees who need to leave the premises after dark, promoting a sense of safety for everyone involved. By enlisting Cutty’s friendly and competent guards, your business can communicate a commitment to both security and customer satisfaction.

The degree of training security guards receive for responding to criminal activity may vary depending on the type of business they are working for. Some guards may only need to gather information and call the police, while others may be authorized to detain suspects. Businesses must decide whether to hire an armed or unarmed guard and establish procedures for handling criminal activity on the premises. At Cutty, our guards receive comprehensive training to address all aspects of security. By hiring a trained and licensed guard from a reputable company like ours, you can rest assured that the guard will respond competently and prudently in the event of criminal activity at your business.

Security guards may not always be actively patrolling a business property. In many cases, a security professional may be tasked with duties such as video surveillance monitoring, credential verification, contraband inspection, manifest confirmation, or access control. Guards are assigned specific objectives, such as preventing shoplifting, loss prevention, monitoring premises after business hours, or opening and closing a business for the day. These monitoring duties alleviate much of the security burden from the business owner and their employees, enabling them to concentrate on their core responsibilities.
