When it comes to security, there are many types of services available. Some companies only offer on-site security guards. At GoJoe Patrol, you’re provided with an extra level of peace of mind that your property is safe and secure. There are several different types of security personnel among GoJoe’s specially trained staff. In addition to on-site security, GoJoe offers armed and unarmed mobile patrol officers.
Unarmed Security vs Armed Security
Unarmed security professionals can provide a number of useful functions:
- secure the premises that they’re assigned to
- offer a mobile security presence that can provide a greater degree of safety for a widespread area
- provide keen observation and detailed reports about any suspicious activity
- act as effective liaisons to emergency services
Armed security personnel, on the other hand, require more equipment and training to do their jobs properly. It is a necessity that anyone operating a firearm has the proper training to safely handle such dangerous equipment. That makes the process of training and screening armed security to ensure you’re getting reliable assistance even more vital.
Advantages of an Armed Security Officer
There are a range of benefits that you’ll enjoy when you’re protected by properly-trained armed guards. For one, even the mere presence of armed security can deter people who might be planning criminal activities on your property. While unarmed guards provide a visible security presence that acts as a deterrence as well, the prospect of dealing with highly-trained and well-equipped armed guards is enough to put off most criminals.
Armed security also provides you with crucial assistance in emergency situations that other guards can’t offer. An unfortunate reality is that active shooter scenarios are becoming more prevalent than ever, with terrible headline-grabbing attacks occurring far too often. By having guards who have been properly trained in the use of a firearm, you’ll provide a crucial front line of defense for your property and the lives of those on the premises.
