About Us

The fact is that crime statistics are often reported in a confusing and misleading manner. When the news media reports on crime, they often do so for ratings growth rather than public knowledge. When we research crime statistics, it’s to determine the local effect of criminal behavior in relation to our clients’ wellbeing.


Guard Security acts as a buffer zone for our clients in areas that have demonstrated higher incidences of criminal activities such as breaking and entering, robberies and even arson. We focus on assisting our clients with a multi-pronged approach to crime prevention. Guards who are visibly present help to deter those who are looking to commit crimes of opportunity. Covert surveillance helps to spot those who are operating behind the scenes to take advantage of our clients.


Our company covers a variety of missions in different cities around the country. Our staff works alongside corporate heads, celebrities, and shopkeepers. Their goals are always the same; take care of the client’s assets, their people and their integrity. Guard Security offers more than a person in a uniform. We provide protection when it’s needed for as long as it’s needed.


We protect businesses from loss in four ways:


  1. Direct intervention among those who seek to steal from them
  2. Physical presences on the scene as a deterrent

Safety Procedures

General Safety Practices
The general principles of safety are to be observed by all employees while on-duty. Security guards are required to be alert and to be able to recognize possible danger and take the appropriate action to prevent injury to themselves and others. One of the primary duties of an officer is to provide for the safety of others. This is done by recognizing situations that can cause harm and rectifying them.

Safety Hazards
A security officer watches for:


  • Wet and slick floors
  • Broken glass and sharp objects which can cause injury
  • Poorly lit areas
  • Loose carpet
  • Protruding nails or screws
  • Loose or missing banisters
  • Exposed electrical wiring
  • Unsecured chemicals
  • Damaged emergency equipment
  • Ice on walkways and stairwells
  • Broken or damaged walkways and stairwells
  • Objects obstructing walkways, stairwells, hallways and fire exits
  • Any situation that may have the potential for harm


Accidents
An accident will be defined as an incident in which a person or property becomes injured or damaged as the result of the non-intentional actions of another or oneself.


Reporting Accidents
Anytime a accident occurs that has caused harm or has the potential to cause harm to a persons or property it must be reported to a supervisor immediately. Failure to report an accident will result in disciplinary action. When an accident has occurred, the employee will contact his/her supervisor and make a report of the accident the employee will then fill out an employee report detailing the accident and how it happened. Once the employee has completed the employee incident report, it will be forwarded to the operations department for review. After a review has been made of the accident, the employee will be notified of the findings.


Reporting Accidental Injuries While On-Duty
In the event that an employee is injured while on-duty, he/she will immediately notify the shift supervisor and communications center (dispatch) about the injury, its severity and any need for medical aid. If an employee is unable to communicate the severity, the security guard can simply call, “Officer needs emergency assistance,” and the communications center will dispatch all available security officers to that location. Once an employee reports an injury, the shift supervisor will respond to the post and verify the injury and relieve the employee if necessary. If an employee is injured, he/she will complete all required Department of Labor and Industry forms as well as an employee-incident report prior to the end of the shift. In the event that an employee is unable to file the appropriate forms and reports due the severity of the injury, that guard will have time provided to them to complete the necessary forms and reports. If the employee is unable to write because of the injury, he/she may give a verbal statement and verify the information before it is submitted.


Safety Inspections
A duty of all security guards will be to perform safety inspections of their assigned posts. The inspections will be noted in their logs and inform management of possible safety and fire hazards they may otherwise be unaware of.


Lighting
The need for effective lighting is essential for security operations. All security officers assigned to these post with exterior lighting will make note of all burned-out lights during their tour of duty. These lighting reports will be included in the site log for the property management to address. Officers will inspect non-functioning light standards for signs of vandalism and damage and make note of these checks.


Protective Equipment
Guard Security has special requirements for security officers assigned to certain posts. Some posts require that officers wear soft body armor and that some carry blood-borne pathogen kits and first aid pouches. This equipment will be denoted for those officers assigned to special post

Protective Measures
All security officers are encouraged to always take the maximum amount of precautions in any situation involving contact with high risk persons or objects. Officers should always wear their high risk disposable gloves when encountering these types of persons or objects. After any contact with high risk persons or objects, officers should immediately decontaminate themselves by washing their hands with an antimicrobial soap or using a antimicrobial towelette to clean up. Cleaning any exposed equipment that may have come in contact during operations is likewise necessary. After any incident where physical contact has been made, officers should inspect themselves for any abrasions, lacerations and punctures. These should be reported to and inspected by medical personnel to ensure your health. All of the protective equipment in the world will not replace your common sense in situations involving blood-borne pathogens and contamination.
