If you work in property management, or you’re a member of an HOA committee and you’re trying to decide which Bay Area security guard company you should contract with, there are three things you want to consider before signing on the dotted line. Beyond providing reliable protection for your site, the officers in question should bring certain skills and knowledge to the table.
- Training – A good security guard company will spend time and money making sure that their officers have the training they need. That way they can be safe and efficient when they’re patrolling your property. Click here to view the intensive training course required by ADS Guards.
- Licensing and Insurance – It is a necessity (and in most states a requirement) for security services to have all of their business licenses, insurance forms, and employee certification cards current and available for you to look at. Reliable security guard companies should not hesitate to show documentation for proof of insurance, license renewals or other legal paperwork.
- Routine Inspections – Security companies that are well-established understand the importance of having supervisors, or a member of their management team check in on their guards. Not only does it give them a chance to help make sure that post orders and procedures are being followed correctly, it provides an opportunity to offer support and backup for any potential safety issues the officers might be dealing with.
The bottom line is, a well-run security company won’t have any problem answering all of your questions, providing you with the necessary paperwork, or having a supervisor monitor security personnel when they’re working at your site.
