School security measures

Our school is in an area that gets a bit rough at night. We've had a lot of vandalism at night and during the holidays, and it costs the school a lot to get the vandalism repaired, so we are upping our security measures. It's very distressing for the entire school community when the school is vandalised, so we are hoping that a combination of key, locks and grilles along with security patrols can help to reduce the rate of vandalism we experience. This blog is all about security measures for schools, and I want it to be a place we can share the measures that work for our schools.

Why You Need Security Guards for Your Business


Technological advancements has made it possible for homeowners and business managers or owners to automate their security systems. Today, homes and commercial premises can be equipped with security cameras that allow for remote monitoring of all corners of the property in real time; or, security alarm systems that can be set to go off immediately they detect a breach in the security system; and the list goes on and on. 

In spite of the availability of automated security systems, there is still high demand for manned guarding. Manned guarding refers to the presence of security staff onsite and it remains a popular option for many businesses in Australia because of the advantages it has to offer. Let's discuss some key advantages of enlisting the services of security guards to keep your commercial property secure. 

Gives a visual presence of security

With the rise in crime rates, customers want to feel safe in the commercial premises that they walk into, and employees want to work in buildings where their security is guaranteed. In that regard, perhaps the biggest advantage manned guarding offers businesses is the ability to provide customers and employees with a sense of security. 

You'd be surprised at just how easily potential criminals will be discouraged from attempting to break into your property when there's a visual presence of security. The sight of manned guards alone can be enough to put off intentions to commit crime, as it gives the impression that the business takes no chances when it comes to securing its premises against criminals or intruders. In addition, it can give customers and workers peace of mind knowing that trained security staff is available to handle any security situations that may take place.

Reduces business liability in case of a security incident

Every business has a responsibility to keep its customers and employees safe from harm. Clearly, not all security incidences can be avoided, but in case any investigation arises, it's important to demonstrate that you had put reasonable measures in place to deal with the situation. A good way to reduce business liability is to make sure you have boots on the ground to handle security situations, and there's no better way to do that than to hire security guards. 

Depending on your business or services, it could be crucial to have security guards on your property. Contact relevant companies to learn more about security services.
