The Need for Security During Protests and Riots

Over the past month, there has been a great deal of civil unrest in the United States. From protests to riots, and from peaceful marches to violent looting, it’s critical that your business is protected and prepared. Hiring private security for your business is the best way to make sure your customers feel safe and protect the investment you’ve made in your business. 

Civil Unrest Throughout Cities 

Unfortunately, some peaceful protests and gatherings over the past few weeks have devolved into riots and looting. When looters take the streets, is your business prepared to fight back? In many cases, private security guards are partially so effective because most rioters and looters look for the path of least resistance. If you have a visible deterrent, you are less likely to be impacted if there is a store across the road or further down the street that did not take steps to protect itself. When police are occupied with protests and responding to critical issues, private security can fill the gap that they would normally occupy and take care of proactive policing, instead of being reactive. Off-duty police officers are you best insurance.

The Benefits of Private Security During Protests and Riots

  1. Private security makes customers feel safe to come to your store and shop. The COVID-19 pandemic has already made shopping intimidating for many consumers, and protests are making many even more reluctant to go out. 
  2. Private security provides everyone with a sense of security, even people who are not going to your store. When order is maintained and people feel safe, crimes are less likely to occur. 
  3. Private security professionals are well equipped to deal with any security issues as efficiently and unobtrusively as possible. Instead of calling attention to the issue and putting other people at risk, private security can seamlessly prevent the loss or crime from occurring and, ideally, never allow most customers or staff to see that anything happened at all. 
  4. Finally, private security guards are exceptional at maintaining order. Whether you are concerned about your employees being unsafe or looters stealing your inventory when you are not there, we can help with all of your needs.
