How To Choose The Best Private Security Company

Posted on:   In: Blog

In the world today we find ourselves needing to be protected from those that would harm us, steal from us or vandalize our property. No matter what type of business you have you need to make sure that you have great security. My friends at IGS Security ( have provided me with these tips.

Engaging a private security company is considered to be the first choice both for commercial businesses and property managers to ensure the proper protection of people and property. You cannot just rush in to the first security service you see. There are many private security companies, deciding on the most suitable one for your needs can become a challenge. Before you make any decisions, let’s focus on the four essential qualities that define a professional security services provider.

Reputation is key in choosing a private security company. It doesn’t matter that the company has been around for fifty years if they can’t protect your business, facilities, people and property. Do not be afraid to ask questions. Experience not only proves the reliability of the company’s security service, but also provides professional insight into the locale and the best ways to protect your assets. Check around in the business community. Look for a company that has “raving fans” great customer service, good relations with local law enforcement, strong technology solutions and innovative value added service options tailored specifically for your needs. Ask yourself; can your security company provide proof that the service you are paying for is actually being carried out?

Look for security service providers with the experience to provide protection for businesses, financial institutions, executives, office complexes, multi-unit residential buildings, retail stores, malls, commercial properties, schools, hospitals, manufacturing plants, hotels, resorts, property management companies and more.

Reliability assures that criminals and vandals will see that your business, commercial properties, or residential buildings are guarded by a professional private security company that has the experience to keep them out. A reliable security services provider will make sure that your facility is under constant surveillance and establish a strong and visible security presence backed by the latest technology, trained and licenced security guards, proven policies, procedures and general orders. Security service providers that have been in business for many years will also have contacts with local authorities.

Integrity means professionalism. Professionals make the difference in providing security. Look for a security company that has a commitment to strict hiring practices that include background checks and training programs assist in reducing client liability in the event of a major or minor incident by hiring only the top graduates of security training courses and also pass in-house training and induction. All security guards should hold individual security licenses. Even better choose a security provider that also offers security guard training.

A professionally run security provider will make sure that the security team will work well with your employees and if you are in a shared building they will make sure that the security guards work well with the other people in the building.

Affordability starts with considering your budget. Make sure that you work out what you will be able to afford. Having a budget and knowing what you can pay out will help you to find the best service.
