Top 5 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Security Guard Company
According to the annual U.S. Contract Security Industry white paper by Robert H. Perry & Associates, there are 8,000 security guard companies in the U.S. How do you find the right one for your security needs? Here are five questions to ask when making a selection.
Do They Have The Right Kind of Experience? A security company with only office or retail experience probably wouldn’t be a good fit to secure an event or festival. Event security requires a different skill set than, say, a security guard who checks credentials at an office building or is on the lookout for shoplifters Ask the guard company if it has other clients with similar security needs as yours.
Can They Provide References? A security guard company works closely with management to ensure a location is safe and protected. That working relationship is critical.
