We Have a Security Guard for Every Situation
Clients have great freedom to choose how each security guard works for them, but one of the main choices has to do with unarmed or armed security. Some clients prefer an armed security guard, and others prefer an unarmed security guard. The choice is an important one. Each type of security guard has its benefits, but unarmed security tends to be more common.
An armed security officer can have an imposing presence, and everyone in the vicinity will take note of the weapons the guard has. This can be very beneficial for stopping crimes before they ever take place. On the other hand, some clients feel that armed security creates a lot of unwanted tension.
Unarmed security officers have a highly visible presence, but the lack of any weapon tends to make people feel more at ease. The unarmed security officer has an easier time communicating with staff and guests. Many clients prefer this type of security guard. An armed security officer simply does not work out well in some situations, and companies often do not like the increased liabilities that a security guard with weapons brings.
