Law Enforcement Security is Better for Business: 3 Reasons Why
Have you ever been to an event and seen Law Enforcement security officers instead of typical security guards? Or perhaps you’ve seen police officers at your church working security? The fact is, more and more organizations are looking for better security, and the uniformed police officers can provide it.
Law Enforcement Security Officers Provide Peace of Mind
One of the reasons law enforcement security officers are in demand is because they’re already fully vetted and trained. Furthermore, the training they have received is of the highest degree, and they already protect and serve on a daily basis. After all, there’s nothing worse than having a situation arise that your security doesn’t know how to de-escalate properly.
Brand Awareness and Positioning Increases
Having law enforcement security officers on the premises can really make a statement for your brand.
For example, let’s say that you are hosting an event or conference, and you want to make your guests feel as safe as possible. If you use regular security guards, there’s nothing really special about that. Why? Because most likely, it’s expected. But what if you had law enforcement security officers there instead? What does that say about how serious you are about providing a safe environment for your guests? In addition, it makes your guests sit back and think, “Whoa! This must be a bigger deal than I thought!”
Another added benefit is that many times, they’ll even work traffic for you so that there are no bottlenecks for those looking to find parking.
They Actually Want the Job
Have you ever hired a security company only to be disappointed down the road? After surveying several companies and conducting hours of research, we have learned that one of the many complaints boils down to enthusiasm. Moreover, it seems like many security guards either don’t like their jobs, or it’s just a temporary gig until something better comes along. In other words, they just don’t want the job, plain and simple. And that apathy is what is giving the security industry a bad name.
However, off-duty police officers actually want the job! They love what they do, and are never really “off duty”. Equally important, many of them already moonlight after-hours as a side-job. So next time you’re considering security, think about hiring law enforcement security officers.
