Unarmed Security Guard – Houston
Twin City Security in Houston Provides the Best Unarmed Security Guards
At Twin City Security in Houston (TCS-Houston), we take pride in our security guard services. An unarmed security officer follows the same security protocol as an armed security officer. The difference is the unarmed guard does not carry a weapon.
Unarmed security guards are less expensive than armed security guards because they do not need weapons training and permits. Insuring unarmed security guards is more cost effective than insuring armed security officers. Facilities and events not in high risk categories get excellent security coverage using TCS-Houston unarmed security guards.
Houston Facilities Using Unarmed Security Guards
Unarmed security officers do more than deter opportunistic crimes, like theft and vandalism. They keep the people safe by preventing emergencies. Their preventative duties include:
Keeping a fire watch
Maintaining alarm systems
Checking IDs at entrances and exits
Reporting any hazards or security threats
Inspecting personal belongings when necessary
Patrolling the interior and exterior at both regular and irregular intervals
Calming and separating people engaged in disputes
Staying vigilant for unusual activities
Creating evacuation routes and other emergency preparedness plans because a detailed plan reduces panic by giving each employee specific responsibilities
Setting up routines and procedures related to safety and security
If there is an emergency, such as flood or fire, the TCS-Houston officer’s quick response may save valuable inventory and might even save a life.
At TCS-Houston we offer 3 levels of unarmed security guards
Level 1 is the most basic level and the most cost effective. Level 1 guards deter property crime and do not interact much with the public.
Level 2 officers have more experience and training. They have moderate public relations skills and use more sophisticated technology.
Level 3 officers are the most advanced and have extensive public relations training. Most events and public facilities use Level 3 unarmed security officers.
All three levels receive a high standard of training for the duties they perform. The management team ensures our security officers perform at their very best.
You Don’t Need to Make the Choice Alone
Every facility manager wants to get the best security plan available for employees, guests and assets. But, we understand you have a budget to consider when choosing a contract security company, like TCS-Houston. We offer customized security options so that you only pay for the security services you need.
We help you understand if unarmed security officers are the most effective solution for the facility you manage or own. They are an excellent security solution for most Houston businesses. Although there is some expense involved, reduced insurance premiums often offset the cost. The biggest savings are the emergencies and crimes that never occur or escalate due to our officers’ diligence.
