Many locations such as schools and other public sectors do not need armed guards. However, monitoring these locations can be just as important as acts such as vandalism, theft, loitering or trespassing can discomfort and deter guests from returning. On onsite security guards can help to deter these actions and significantly reduce liability. Businesses that can benefit from an onsite security guard include department stores, sports venues, construction sites, schools and public locations. In general, it is more common for businesses to have unarmed guards than armed ones.
Whether an armed or unarmed security guard is appropriate for your location depends on different factors. People generally see an unarmed security guard as friendlier and more approachable. If the location is low-risk such as a certains retail store or residential buildings an unarmed security guard may be more appropriate. These guards do not carry firearms but are still capable of enforcing the laws and regulations of a specific area.
For many locations, an armed security guard is necessary. Depending on the location the security guard may carry: a baton, stun gun or taser, pepper spray and in certain situations a handgun. Businesses or properties that are common targets of violence or theft can benefit from the addition of armed security. Armed guards are also useful in neighborhoods where theft and burglary are common problems. Some examples of businesses that commonly hire armed security services include: jewelry stores, rare antique shops, high-end art galleries, and financial institutions.
