Learn more about the benefits of private security.

Small businesses as well as large enterprises in Boston, MA are vulnerable to security threats such as vandalism, theft, assault and employee disputes. Such events can damage a company’s infrastructure and business reputation. For this reason, some businesses can’t afford to operate without hiring professional security guards. Some of the main reasons that companies contact Nationwide Investigations & Security, Inc. with inquiries about hiring security guards in Boston, MA are outlined below.

We Provide A Sense of Security

Our Security Guards are Highly Trained

The physical presence of private security guards creates a sense that everything is secure and thus you, your staff and customers have peace of mind. Customers can comfortably leave their car parked knowing somebody is watching. Security officers, whether armed or unarmed, are essential for businesses involved with high-end products or located in a high-risk area. The presence of a security team improves employee retention and productivity, especially in high-risk business locations.

Prompt Incident Response

The Quicker Issues are Addressed, Damages are Mitigated

With the 24 hour guard services provided by Nationwide Investigations & Security, Inc., security guards can be on site at all times. This means they can react to any arising security situation at your business premise. The guard will respond quickly to a situation usually long before the police can arrive at the scene. For example, the police can take more than twenty minutes to arrive in response to an aggressive and chaotic customer while a security guard can respond instantly. With security personnel present on site, they can quickly take control of the situation and prevent losses. It’s important to note the presence of security guards is usually all that’s needed to deter criminal activity.

Improve the Customer Experience

Security Officers Compliment Your Business

The benefits of staffing security guards go beyond protecting your business. Security guards are the first people your customers see inside or outside your business premise. Depending on the kind of business you operate, your security personnel will be available to your clients should they need assistance which is an essential customer service.

For example, in a department store, shoppers usually ask security guards for directions to certain products or common areas. In a mall, security guards are often seen giving directions to certain outlets or services available in the mall.

If needed, security personnel will also escort your employees or customers to their cars during late hours. “Professional” security operatives understand and value the concept of customer care, satisfaction, and create the impression that you run a secure business that cares about its clients.

Emergency Readiness

Boston security guards respond before first responders.

Professional security guards undergo specialized training to properly handle emergencies which includes performing first aid, performing CPR, legally carrying firearms and countering aggressors with the use of batons, pepper sprayers, and firearms. Security guards under the employ of Nationwide Investigations & Security, Inc. are equipped to help out during any type of crisis or natural calamity. We understand how to handle various situations including armed robbery attempts and threats from other threats such as those which occur during active shooter scenarios.

Workplace Violence & Crime Prevention

Don’t be caught defenseless. Don’t be a soft target.

Having security guards in your business premise is an excellent way to deter crimes such as theft, assault, and vandalism. Thieves often avoid targeting enterprises with uniformed protection roving the premise. Security guards are trained to spot suspicious activities and imminent danger. Once they detect suspicious activity, they respond appropriately to prevent the situation from escalating. Your security will alert the police when a crime occurs and assist law enforcement with investigations whenever a crime happens at your establishment.

Armed security guards undergo different levels of training to learn the skills necessary to respond to a crime. Guards also interview witnesses, secure victims and inspect your business for security risks. A professional security guard can also help prepare a loss prevention report to complement their role.

Security guards can be trained to address conduct in your workplace and serve as disciplinary officers to ensure order in the work environment which may ensure that your staff adheres to prescribed rules and regulations.

Surveillance & Monitoring

We’ll help you keep an eye on things.

Aside from active patrol, guards can be assigned to monitor video surveillance, check for contraband, restrict access to certain areas, operate a security gate and check visitors’ credentials. Surveillance is critical especially in retail shops where shoplifting is a risk and for premise security after working hours. Monitoring CCTV security cameras allows the security team to respond swiftly; suspects remain unaware that security has been alerted and won’t have time to escape.

Real-time surveillance is vital to maintaining the security of your enterprise. If you’re a business or property owner with questions about security systems with CCTV & entry access control integration, contact Nationwide Investigations & Security, Inc. today.

Crowd Management

Controlling crowds is directly related to safety.

If you’re hosting or promoting a major event in Boston, our security guards can help keep the crowd under control. Crowd control is essential for preventing potential risks such as mob fights, drunk and disorderly people, organized stage rushes, and riots. Such events can cause not only catastrophic financial losses, but also serious injuries among patrons which carries potential liabilities of their own.

The safety of your business is essential especially during workers strike and labor unrests. These type of events can hamper the productivity of your business, result in injuries and other damages to businesses. Such damages can be avoided with the presence of experienced security guards. Guards who work with Nationwide Investigations & Security, Inc. are trained to perform threat assessments, prevent unauthorized access, deter crime, and record evidence of crime which is essential for injunctive relief.
