Static Guarding

Static guards or security officers protect property, assets, or people. Often they are uniformed and maintain a high visibility presence to deter illegal and inappropriate actions. They observe either directly or by watching video cameras for signs of crime, fire or disorder, reporting any incidents as appropriate. In certain cases we may recommend that mobile patrols work in conjunction with static guards to ensure adequate back-up facilities.

Good customer service is important

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, In : Customer Service 
In the not too distant past security guards were arguably deemed by outsiders to be a none too friendly bunch where protection of both the people and/or property under their control came before any kind of customer consideration. However in the 21st century security job roles have changed and ultimately this means that security companies
are having to take on more customer-focused roles.
