Benefits of Security Services for Commercial/Retail Premises

Why choose on-site security services for your business? Look at some of the many great benefits of hiring a retail security company to handle security at your retail or commercial establishment.

Loss Prevention

Each year, the retail industry as a whole loses about $46.8 billion to inventory theft. This includes theft by organized retail criminals or by dishonest employees, although shoplifting is more common. Our retail security guards are specifically trained to notice strange behavior by shoppers who may actually be shoplifters and put a stop to it.

Trained Security Presence in your facility can Deter criminal activity

Often the mere presence of commercial security services is enough to keep your items on the shelves and everyone in your store safe. Criminals are watching for the amount of security in your establishment. If they see a trained security presence in your store, they are likely to keep searching for an easier target.

Increased Overall Security

An extra set of hands and eyes is never a bad thing, especially when they come with a trained body and brain. In an emergency, a retail security guard becomes an authoritative figure who can help people get to safety. Plus, many customers simply feel safer knowing there is security personnel on the scene.

Peace of Mind for Employer and Employees

The peace of mind that comes with commercial protective services is worth its weight in gold. A petty shoplifter stealing a necklace and a t-shirt here and there might not seem like much in terms of money, but it violates your space. Knowing that dishonest people are coming into your store is unsettling.

What Industries Benefit from Security?

Financial Institutions

Aside from keeping criminals a bay, security personnel at financial institutions shows your clients that you care about keeping their finances safe.

Residential Communities

Single women, elderly couples, families with young children — everyone enjoys the peace of mind from having building security services on-site.

Corporate security services help keep your materials and personnel safe at all times.
