What is Manned Guarding?
Manned guarding is having a physical presence at your place of business in order to deter or discourage illegal activity with patrols and/or surveillance. It is primarily used to:
Prevent unauthorised access and occupation of a property or premises
Preserve a property or premises against destruction, damage, and theft
Provide protection for one or more individuals such as employees and customers
Although its primary purpose is to increase security and safety, manned guarding also represents the first point of contact at many businesses. Therefore, it is imperative that security guards are trained to deal with potential dangers while simultaneously welcoming members of the general public.
For this reason, manned guarding is now a convenient and cost-effective service that enables businesses to focus on its key responsibilities, safe in the knowledge visitors are being cared for.
While the security industry is witnessing several technological advances alongside the growing threat of cybercrime, a number of businesses forget about the importance of protecting their physical assets. However, manned guarding remains an incredibly useful and effective tactic when it comes to corporate security.
