Private security officers without proper training are a disaster waiting to happen. The right armed guards with the right training make security calm, simple and worry-free. Since today’s world has numerous threats that can become reality on any given day, armed security guards are always expected to be able to handle anything and everything if necessary. That’s why at Price Protection Security we choose only the best candidates for our armed security guard positions.
Most of our officers served in law enforcement or the military. Their experience with high-stress, highly dangerous situations is invaluable on the streets. We actively recruit guards with those backgrounds because we know there is no substitute for front line experience.
Recruitment is only the first step. Extensive background checks verify all the information that applicants for armed guard positions provide to us. Different aptitude and personality tests are then used to ensure applicants have the emotional stability and cognitive skills needed to exercise good judgement and make quick decisions in stressful environments. Finally, all applicants must pass multi-tier drug tests prior to hiring.
These tests guarantee our guards are always ready to handle the toughest of assignments.
Once recruitment is over, we implement our highly rigorous, top level training.
Effective private security guards are ready for any eventuality. Therefore our training covers a wide variety of tactics. Compared to other armed security companies, Price Protection Security prioritizes top quality training and selection for its guards. Many of our armed security guards already possess many years of training and experience in law enforcement and military operations. Combining this understanding with quality training from Price Protection Security creates a comprehensive security awareness unparalleled in the industry. This dual approach enables us to provide only highly trained guards to clients.
Clients need armed security guards for many reasons. In some circumstances the target is mobile. Armed guards may act as escorts for a VIP such as a politician or celebrity on their way to and from a function. In other situations, they may need to transport cash, jewellery, or other valuable items from location to location. Some clients station armed security guards at a guard post or entrance to a business such as a manufacturing, office, or healthcare facility. Other institutions such as gated residential communities, private members clubs or religious institutions often employ unarmed and armed guards to control crowdflow, check authorized entry and keep people safe.
Coordinators hire armed guards when they need a higher level of protection. Whatever the reason and specifics of the case, Price Protection officers have the skills needed to perform their duties with professionalism and to the highest possible ethical standards.
Guard training and placement is only part of the puzzle. Officers operate as part of a team. Their role has to be optimized within a broader security plan. Price Protection Security integrates a full tech-based solution into our deployment protocols. Our patrol services and surveillance methods are some of the best in the private security industry.
Typical private security companies schedule patrols and surveillance set times during the day and night, using the same patrol routes and techniques each time. Armed security officers from Price Protection use randomized patrols and surveillance on their assignments. We provide real-time updates to the client using our app guard tracking system. Constant communication and a 24/hr hotline enable us to reroute guards to hotspots at a moment’s notice, and clients to check in on what is happening.
This makes it impossible for employees or others to know exactly where our officers will be at any given moment. Uncertainty is a powerful deterrent to vandalism, drug activity, and other illegal acts.
On private security assignments, clients want well-trained guards capable of keeping people and property safe. However, there is much more to the job than having top quality security skills. Armed guards should also be approachable, friendly and deal with everyone the meet with professionalism. Guards often double up as front-of-house staff. They may be asked to provide directions, check customers into a venue, and other light administrative duties. Even when not in such a role, guards who look clean and professional impact the overall feel of an event positively, and make others feel protected. Clearly visible guards are an excellent deterrent against potential criminals.
We take pride in a professional demeanour and image at Price Protection Security. When armed security guards arrive for their assignments, clients will find them wearing police-style uniforms that are neat and pressed, with freshly shined-shoes, professional haircuts and minimal of jewellery. Since the image an armed guard presents is just as important as the skills they possess, we believe this gives our clients peace of mind and helps us maintain our status as a leader in the private security industry.
No matter your security needs, our armed officers are here to help. To schedule a consultation today, call us at (281)-326-9189.
