When planning your special event or preparing your business there’s no such thing as being too safe. That’s why when hiring a security service you want to be sure you’ve chosen to hire the best organization. It may be overwhelming to decide which is best for you, so we’re here to remove the headache and help make that decision.
Much like our clients we want to be sure that we only hire the very best onto our staff. Our application process involves examining potential scenarios our staff may encounter and having them explain how they would address each situation. Applicants are also expected to submit a PERC card ID and BASSET certification in Illinois, or a Bouncer Certification and RAMP Certification in Pennsylvania. We also require proof of CPR certificiation in both states.
Our staff undergo meticulous and comprehensive training to make sure they’re properly equipped for any situation. This includes receiving de-escalation training to resolve issues so members of management don’t need to get involved, while also making sure that you’re immediately informed. They will be able to negotiate with frustrated customers, patients, attendees, etc to talk down tense situations.
We also implement customer service training so they know how to interact with customers, patients, attendees, etc in a calm and friendly manner. We don’t try to remain a silent, unseen force until a crisis happens. We’ll help you keep things running smoothly so you can focus on managing your event or business.
Armed and Unarmed Security
We understand that good working relationships are built on trust and mutual understanding, and we respect each client’s varying needs and preferences. That’s why we give our clients the power to decide the extent of the relationship they have with our guards, and whether they want to work with unarmed guards or armed guards.
An armed guard with a visible weapon may deter criminal activity, but it can also make people uncomfortable and places feel tense. Our guards don’t have to rely on weapons to do their job properly.
Someone For Every Occasion
What do we mean when we say special events and businesses? Our event security services work at weddings, sporting events, corporate events, auditoriums, large outdoor areas, and special events at local venues. We train our guards to have great crowd control skills, attend to injured guests or employees, property damage, and unruly guests or attendees.
Our bar security work as bouncers and nightclub security guards. Bars and nightclubs attract large crowds and get very busy, so hiring our security team means your staff can focus on tending to the guests without worrying about handling any altercations. Our VIP security team offers you executive protection wherever you may be, including abroad.
