Church Security

Posted by Mathew Davis on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, In : Guest Security Articles

Employee security awareness

Posted by Mike Butler on Saturday, October 27, 2018, In : Guest Security Articles

Naturally, many people are not happy with the multitude of screenings and security checks, as well as the difficulties with ...

My friend works as a security guard for a big company in a 30 floor-complex building including offices and supermarket in the center of the city. I often ask him whether he feels bored or tired because in my mind, he just stands in front of the gate, watches out people going in and out, and he always wears a uniform everyday, every season. However, it is shown from him that he is satisfying with his current job and has no intention of changing this uninspired job into another better job. This...

Guard Dog Training

Posted by Harry Cross on Tuesday, October 2, 2018, In : Guest Security Articles 
A guard dog is usually trained to protect against unwanted or unforeseen visits from people or animals. A guard dog will restrain or attack an intruder if the intruder gets into the territory that the dog is guarding. A watch dog, on the other hand, would only give warning barks at an intruder coming within its range. Guard dog training may train a dog to do either of these two extremes and anywhere in between.
