However, in the event that force is needed, you want to know that your armed security guards are trained and prepared to act.

Why Your Business Needs Armed Security Guards

While there are many critical benefits to having an armed security presence for your business, the primary roles for an armed guard are to deter potential threats and to actively respond to immediate threats. Our armed guards know how to handle a variety of situations with the protection of your people and your property as their number one priority.

In general, the presence of an armed security guard who is in possession of a weapon will deter possible aggressors from making dangerous threats or engaging in criminal behavior on your property. Armed guards also set the tone for others that safety and security is taken seriously on the premises. Alarm and monitoring systems can’t do that. Armed guards provide a level of safety that is second to none.

In the event that the aggressor decides to move forward with his criminal plans, an armed security guard can take immediate action in responding to the threat. Our guards will know exactly how to deal with the threat, using their specialized training and knowledge to act quickly and appropriately. Not only are Blue Line Security Groups officers highly trained in the use of weapons and firearms, but they also receive training in conflict resolution and other de-escalation tactics to allow for the possibility of a peaceful resolution.

Armed security guards can perform any number of security services including:

  • Threat assessments

  • Conducting foot and vehicle patrols

  • Event and property access

  • Communicating with law enforcement

  • Providing assistance to the public

  • Reporting and logging security events

  • Assisting management in security tasks as needed

Many business owners believe that armed security guards are the only solution for the highest level of security. However, this is not always the case. There are many reasons why unarmed security personnel may be a better match for your needs. Blue Line Security Group can help you determine the best security strategies for your unique situation and worksite so you can get the most effective solutions that fit your budget.
