Reasons to Contract with a Private Security Company in Houston

Facility managers and business owners have three choices when it comes to guarding their assets and people.

  1. They can rely on locks, alarms and other hardware to keep unwanted people out of their establishment.
  2. They can hire, train and manage their own security guard team.
  3. They can contract with a private security guard company.

There are pros and cons to each decision.

Benefits for relying on hardware:

  • Do not have to pay, manage or train security guards.


  • Hardware does not patrol, create evacuation plans, check IDs, enforce rules or any of the other duties of a highly trained security guard. They are great tools to help with security, but they are not a complete system without a highly trained security guard using them.

  • They risk becoming broken, overridden or vandalized, making them unreliable.

  • Large upfront cost to install hardware.

Benefits of Having an In-house Security Guard Team:

  • Security officers deter crime, create emergency preparedness plans and respond to emergencies.
  • You can choose who to hire, how to train guards and when to let them go.
  • In large companies, it might be cost-effective to handle your own security team.


  • If you don’t have a strong background in security, it is easy to overlook critical aspects of your security solution.
  • Many managers waste money in their security budget due to inexperience.
  • Hiring and managing a security guard team is time intensive.
  • You must learn industry standards for all aspects of security and safety.
  • You will be responsible for choosing, maintaining and replacing hardware.
  • If a guard gets ill or goes on vacation, it will be your job to find a replacement.
  • You will be legally liable for issues of security and safety.
  • It is rarely cost-effective for small and medium sized locations.

Benefits of Contracting with a Private Security Company, like Twin City Security in Houston:

  • Cost-effective for most locations.
  • We help reduce the legal liabilities of an unsecure location.
  • We hire, train and manage the security guards.
  • You can focus on building maintenance and other responsibilities.
  • You and the security officers can call the dispatch and monitoring system for support anytime.
  • We choose and maintain the technology we use.


  • There is a monthly expense. Owners of very small businesses may pool resources and the guard serves several adjacent properties.
