Unarmed Officers


Businesses require a variety of professionals to ensure the success of day-to-day operations.  Hiring an International Guard Services unarmed security guard may be the right security provider needed to ensure the safety and security of your business. IGS unarmed security guards ensure a security and safety presence.


International Guard Services unarmed security guards  are trained to meet the client’s specific needs.  We work with security professionals that have completed the Private Security Bureau’s most current Level II Training Course. Additionally, each Non-Commissioned Officer must pass an extensive interview process and background investigation. IGS provides unarmed licensed and insured professionals, and also practices a drug free work environment.


Because hiring the best security for your business is one of the most important decisions you can make, it is important to understand the difference in security professionals.


Unarmed security guards are often a sufficient monitoring and protection system for low-level danger; their presence is enough to prevent most crimes. Unarmed security guards do not carry firearms, however they may carry other types of non-lethal weapons such as pepper spray, a baton, or possibly a taser.  An unarmed security guard is often enough to make patrons and employees feel safe while still enjoying themselves. These professionals can overlook business and monitor surveillance systems, but also assist customers or employees with things such as: greeting customers, giving directions, escorting people to their car after dark or occupying the front desk area.

Consider your type of business; jobs where the criminal threat is relatively low are generally good instances to hire unarmed security officers. If your business is not at risk for high crime (i.e. church setting, traffic control, parks, museums, pools and other recreational areas), unarmed security officers may be the best choice for you.  When threats such as vandalism and theft are the biggest concern, the presence of unarmed security officers will often deter such activity.  Additionally, for smaller businesses and low-budget events, hiring unarmed security officers may be a more cost-effective choice.
