Is Hiring a Security Guard Worth the Investment?

For businesses that sell lots of small/inexpensive products (like gas stations or fast food restaurants),installing a good security system and making sure your insurance policy is up to date is usually enough security for your business. However, for companies that hold a lot of cash at any given time, or are in the possession of important intellectual property that would be difficult to replace if stolen, investing in a security guard or security company may be worthwhile. For any business, you’ll have to decide if that risk of loss is greater than the investment you’ll be making in a security guard. Are you still waiting to hire a security...

Managing Outsourced Security Companies – Part 2 3. Supervision Lastly, in order to have a truly successful security program (and make your job easier) it is crucial for you to address security guard supervision.  Remote supervision of the security force is a service provided by the contractor and is different from the overall guidance that you provide as the security manager.  Even in cases where the security department is large enough to have supervisors on each shift, additional systems for remote supervision should also be established.  If your facility does not have formal supervisors for each shift, these systems become even more important. The two main methods that security contractors use to remotely supervise their guards are Field Supervisors and Guard Tour Tracking Systems. Field supervisors provide limited supervision of the day-to-day security operations for several of your contractor’s sites.  Field supervisors are tasked with conducting inspections of your contractor’s client sites, including your own. These inspections are performed randomly and per an established schedule.  The field supervisors will provide training for new security officers, perform inspections, as well as respond to and report any problems to your contractor.  Field supervisor inspections of your facility and guards should be documented and provided to you on a regular basis. Tip: In many instances the quality of your service will correlate with the number of visits performed by field supervisors. Guard tour tracking systems have become an essential tool for any company that provides security guards. The purpose of a guard tour system is to monitor the time and patrol activity of the guards while they are on duty.  Guard tour...

How To Manage Your Contract or Outsourced Security When you use the right tools for managing your contract security force it will make everyone’s job easier, especially if your are member of JMB or a Resident Committee. There are basically 3 primary tools that we will discuss in this article.  The first of which is the Security Manual. The Security Manual The security manual is a document that outlines directives, emergency procedures, post orders, and other memorandum pertaining to the security function.  Your facility’s security manual should also reflect publications and manuals from other departments such as audit wherever possible.  By having this tool in place, you will spend much less time addressing errors that your guards make due to the lack of proper instruction or training. The security manual should be a living document that is updated regularly and one which all security guards should have access to it.  The ability to quickly update the security manual, or at a minimum the post orders, is critical. The security manual’s post orders provide instructions that are specifically tailored for each post or position in the security program. The post orders should also detail the guard’s duties in chronological order so that they serve as a minute-by-minute guide for the guards.  As part of the security manual, post orders must also undergo regular revision, review, and updating.  In a world dominated by document sharing applications, post orders should be stored and accessed digitally.  When stored digitally, post orders can be updated, uploaded, and distributed to your guards instantaneously.  This type of instantaneous access ensures that all of your guards are...
