Businesses and communities depend on security guards to protect their homes, businesses, property, and people from potential threats. Unlike law enforcement agents who employ a reactive approach to criminal events, such as police officers who intervene or respond after a criminal act has occurred, security guards use preventive measures to reduce risks and stop crime. They’re trained to be on the lookout for looming danger and report any unusual incidents that may require further action to mitigate risks. In doing so, security guards protect the people and property around the places they’re guarding.
