The need for tighter business security was recently reinforced when a New Jersey teen managed to avoid detection in the middle of the night and climb the spire of 1 World Trade Centre in New York City to take photos.
That kind of breach, especially at this location in the United States, reinforced the needs and benefits of vigilant private security for companies all over the world, including those based in Australia.
After all, private security is a major industry in the country and security services continue to be in a state of rapid growth, according to the Australian Institute of Criminology. In fact, a report filed by the Australian government back in 2009 noted that security personnel outnumber police two-to-one in the Land of Oz.
If your business is on the fence about the need for Gold Coast Security, consider the positives involved in such a decision:
Quick Response Times
Security guards outnumbering police means that a Private Security Team will be available to respond to a situation immediately. For example, say that your business has an alarm triggered by a would-be-thief. In the past a business owner would have been disappointed by the slow (or no) response.
RENT A COP responds the moment an alarm is trigged, notifies police and dispatches a Uniformed Security Officer immediately who remains on scene until business owners arrive.
Licensed, Fully Trained Professionals
Did you know that back in 2008, the Council of Australian Governments embarked on a process of seeking a nationally consistent approach to licensing manpower (guarding)? This significant step towards reform in the security industry means that RENT A COP Security Officers are much more than a person in uniform. To maintain a high level of skill and professionalism, they undergo regular reviews, as well as monthly training on negotiation, self-defence, fitness and more.
