Tips When Hiring Security Guard Services

Donald Lopez

Security guards are an essential element of home and business security. They are the human component that will ensure all other security components function optimally. For instance, they will monitor CCTV footage on a 24-hour basis to identify threats to your business or home. They will also report faulty alarm systems or issues in your perimeter security. If you are looking for security guard services, below are some tips to guide you.


The security company should specialise in the area you seek security services. For instance, if you need VIP security services, security guards specialising in home security may not offer the best service. Also, ask how long the company has been in operation. Evaluate their reputation from online reviews or testimonials from past and current clients.

Security guard training.

The security guards should be highly trained. A good security guard should know how to use guns and handle security dogs when needed. He or she should be in a position to operate and manipulate security systems to ensure that they function optimally. Also, the guard should have critical thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills required to evaluate and neutralise threats.

The range of services.

Look for a company that offers a wide range of services. Some of the services provided by security companies today include;

  • Disaster response. Some companies have firefighters that will respond in case a fire breaks out in your home.
  • Patrolling services. If you have a large compound, you need guards patrolling every corner of the property to prevent intruders.
  • Alarm response. Once there are intruders in your home, the security company will mobilise other guards and local law enforcement to respond to the threat.
  • Security consultancy. The company will evaluate your home or business for various internal or external threats. They will also undertake measures to prevent corporate espionage and data theft. 

Level of professionalism.

The company should have excellent customer service. They should promptly respond to your inquiries and provide quotes at your request. Preferably, the company should have membership in a professional body. The guards should be uniformed and disciplined. 


The costs of hiring the security company will depend on your preferred package. Request for quotes from a few security companies before deciding which company you will hire. Ask how and when payments are made. Also, inquire if you will incur extra charges if you need an extra guard or emergency services.

When hiring a security guard services, evaluate their speciality, training, professionalism, range of services and the cost.
