Why does my business need security patrols if there are already local police in the area?
Local police may have a slow response time in the area where your business is located. Or maybe you have to leave very expensive equipment out overnight or on weekends, such as at a construction site. In these situations, security patrolling protects equipment and construction buildings- and protects your valuable assets.
My business already has an electronic security system- why do I need more security?
Your electronic security system may not be providing a strong enough defense again theft or unauthorized access. A security person can monitor your security system in order to immediately respond and stop attempted break-ins or theft. Better yet, a security patrol can give a strong visible deterrent to vandals or thieves, so your business will not lose money through loss of property or damages.
What does a patrol security guard do?
Patrol security guards can be customized to many environments- hotels, universities, hospitals, gated communities, banks or malls, and can be more cost-effective than a standing guard when a larger area needs coverage. Patrol security can be conducted on foot, bike or car, and the patrol security’s high visibility prevents problems or allows for fast response when needed. Patrols on properties can be scheduled or unscheduled, for maximum effect.
What type of uniforms do ASAP Security guards wear?
ASAP Security personnel wears a professional police-like uniform- black pants, white shirts, black security jackets and hats, along with clear ID.
Why aren’t mall guards allowed to carry guns?
Actually “mall cops” can be permitted to carry guns- it simply depends on the needs of their private company that hired them, and the rules of the specific mall. Mall policies vary, and many malls strive for a gun-free zone, therefore they want no armed security guards. Mall security guards are either commissioned (armed) or non-commissioned (unarmed) based on their training and the needs of their employer.
Do unarmed security officers carry handcuffs?
Security personnel, either armed or unarmed, are only allowed to carry and use handcuffs if they have the correct certification for that use. By the way, handcuffing someone does NOT mean they are under arrest, it only means a person is being secured and lawfully detained. The perpetrator can then be turned over by the security guard to responding law enforcement.
