They help your employees and clients feel safe
The presence of security guards gives you your employees and clients a sense of security and peace of mind. Employees will be able to work comfortably when they know someone is looking after their vehicles and the valuables therein. Also, your customers will feel that you care for their safety, and you’re taking the necessary steps to ensure it.
They ensure that parking lot rules are followed
Security guards can help ensure that the parking lot rules you have set are followed. For example, they can help ensure that no one parks in a handicap parking area unless they are handicapped or that visitors do not park in reserved parking areas. They can also help make sure that no one parks on the fire lane.
They deter theft and vandalism
Having one or more security guards in your parking lot is an effective way of deterring crime. This is because it shows that you are serious about protecting your premises, which prevents them from making your garage or parking lot a target. Besides, security guards are trained to notice any suspicious activity and react accordingly.
They help in monitoring
Apart from active patrol, security guards can perform other functions such as monitoring the video surveillance, restricting access to certain areas, checking for contraband, and checking driver credentials. By taking these duties off your shoulders, you will be able to focus on your core functions.
