Role of security guards in our lives
We see security guards nearly every single day. Some people work side-by-side with them without actually thinking much at all about the daily role that they play in our lives. Other times we just pass them in public without a second thought. Whether you’re a business owner, a security manager, or just someone who works alongside security personnel, it can be easy to have misconceptions and misunderstandings about guards. We see movies and television shows with guards in them, but we don’t know the reality of their daily world.
One of the powerful ability of the security guard is to work independently. Opposing to popular belief, security guards don’t need constant supervision to get their jobs done. The reality is quite the opposite, in that security guards can work with the coordinators to plan a security strategy and then follow that strategy independently to make sure it’s being carried out exactly as desired.
Some people see guards as lower-level police officers. The reality is those guards are highly trained security guards to anticipate security problems before they occur and to respond to those problems appropriately. Although guards are not police officers, they are trained to understand local laws and ordinances in order to be sure that crimes aren’t broken on their watch.
