Unarmed security officers are excellent for monitoring property and buildings with low-level danger. They do not carry firearms, though they may wield non-lethal weapons such as pepper spray, tasers or a baton. Having an unarmed officer on your property is often sufficient to prevent most crimes and they provide an added measure of safety and piece of mind for residents, patrons, and property owners.
Our armed security team works to keep you, your customers, your employees and your property safe 24/7. An armed officer will be your front-line protection and ensure that your property or event remains secure from criminal activity. All of our armed officers are highly trained and experienced.
This is a very specialized form of security and is often known as “close protection,” as it’s a security officer who is there to protect a person that may be at risk due to their social status, net worth, personal affiliations, and so forth. An executive security guard will keep a subtle, low-profile while protecting someone with a high-profile. We offer the most highly skilled and trained executive security officials in Houston, TX.
Our mobile patrol units provide security and surveillance for your property, company, employees and residents at a much faster pace than a security officer on foot. Whether in a patrol car, ESV or on a bicycle, our mobile safety guards are extremely beneficial to preventing possible acts of crime due to their being more highly visible and mobile.
Alarms come in handy when they alert you to a potential break-in or crime activity, but once that alarm is triggered, you’ll want to ensure someone is notified and responding right away. Our control center will receive a signal that the alert was activated, and a highly trained security officer will immediately respond to the alarm, verify if the activation was accidental or not, and determine if any back-up law enforcement needs to be dispatched.
OFF-DUTY POLICE OFFICERS
If you’re in need of private security, an off-duty police officer may be the perfect choice for you considering the extent of their training and knowledge, as well as their constant exposure to safety threats and security risks. Even though they are considered off-duty, these officers are still held to the same high-standards and level of accountability as though they were on active duty.
SECURITY GUARD SERVICES FAQ
What do security services offer?
Having security services in play for your company or property will help provide peace of mind, added security and prevention of any illegal, unauthorized, or dangerous activity from taking place. In a broader sense, security services offer protection of persons, property, and assets.
What are the types of security guards?
There are typically two types of security guards – armed and unarmed. From there, the types of guards can be broken out based on needs and services provided, such as mobile patrol of a property, executive security for a high-profile individual, or officers responding to an alarm trigger.
What is the difference between a security guard and security officer?
A security guard may have more limited responsibilities than that of a security officer. An officer may also oversee and manage security guards and play a role in training and educating new guards. A security offer can also refer to an off-duty police officer, who has gone through a significant amount of training to earn a badge and has a thorough understanding of laws and protocols.
