  • Large Merchandise Deliveries: Many people buy most everything online these days, and that can involve large shipments of goods and merchandise, especially around the Holidays or during big sales, like Amazon’s annual customer appreciation sale. Package delivery is huge and sometimes this merchandise can be quite valuable, and armed guards can help protect the merchandise from theft.
  • Jewelry: Yes, many extremely valuable pieces of jewelry, as well as precious metals from medal brokers, are bought and sold around the world on the internet these days. Perhaps you don’t need an armored vehicle, but armed guards can certainly help protect the jewelry so that it reaches its destination safe and sound.
  • Rare Coins, Stamps and Other Collectibles: Rare coins are extremely valuable, as many different types of collectibles can be. These types of collectibles, artifacts and other valuable commodities are often sold online these days, whether you buy them from a broker, an individual or an auction. Wherever you buy them from, armed guards can help protect them.
  • High Bidding Items from Online Auctions: There are plenty of estates and valuable pieces, from artwork to expensive technology, that are sold at various outlets online. These items can be valued at tens of thousands of dollars or more, and are prime targets for criminals.
  • Cash Escorts: Believe it or not people still use cash for some transactions, and some people order large amounts of cash, bonds or other types of currencies to be delivered. Armed guards can escort cash deliveries when the delivery is too small for the need of an armored vehicle, but big enough to attract criminal elements

Concert Security is a Must in 2017

Sadly it doesn’t take much effort to find great concerts, celebrated special events that quickly turn to tragedy. A simple look at the recent tragedy in Manchester, what happened to Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrel, or the violence that occurred at the second Woodstock are enough to scare anyone, and for good reason. Concerts attract large crowds, and often crowds that are looking to let everything hand loose and have a good time.

For obvious reasons, this can pose many risks and problems, for event organizers, staff, talent and the crowds that attend. That is why, in today’s world, skilled, experienced concert security is simply a must have for any size concert. There are too many threats and too many reasons for concern to ignore the need for concert security. Concert security can’t prevent problems, but they can address and contain issues and keep them from getting worse or becoming complete tragedies for many in attendance. Concert security staff, in 2017 and beyond, can help address serious issues such as:

• Terrorists: This is unfortunately the bane of modern existence, and as the recent Ariana Grande Concert is gut wrenching evidence of, concerts are prime targets for potential terrorist attacks. Concert security can help prepare for, identify and prevent any threat, even the threat of terrorist attacks.
• Crowd Control: Crowds at concerts can quickly get out of hand. Like it or not alcohol and drugs, even where illegal, are often imbibed by concert attendees, and that and the natural exuberance and proximity of the crowd can lead to violence, which can quickly become a big problem with a large crowd.
• Talent and Staff Protection: Unfortunately people who work at the concert are also at risk, even though they are just doing their jobs. This can especially be true for the performers and their staffs, who need to be protected from overzealous fans and crowds who can harm them though they may mean no harm.
• Violence Prevention and Diffusion: Once an issue breaks out at a concert it has to be addressed quickly before the violence spreads through the crowd and gets out of hand. On site concert security can help prevent and address violence to contain and eliminate it as quickly as possible.
• Total Surveillance: No one can be everywhere at once, but with modern technology a skilled concert security detail can monitor an entire venue from a control center. They can even keep a constant eye on those dangerous low traffic spots.
• Emergency Response Coordination: Concert security details will have an emergency response system in place and will be on standby at all times, ready to instantly address any crisis that arises.
• Venue Protection: Vandalism, accidents, violence and negligence can do a tremendous amount of property damage at concert venues if unchecked. Concert security can protect the venue as well as the people attending the concert.

Private Security Guard Jobs Set to See Increase in 2017 and Beyond.

We live in more dangerous times than in any time throughout the history of society. From overpopulation to crime to terrorists to simple negligence, there are far too many causes of problems with far too little law enforcement or emergency response officials to prevent and contain them. For these reasons, private security jobs are set to increase in the coming years, and they are becoming highly coveted jobs at that.

Private security gigs are not glamorous but they are far from boring, they pay very well (with a good firm) and there are too many openings with too few qualified candidates for the positions. The fact is, there is a large shortage of quality private security guards, and plenty of jobs available. Private security guards must be trained and licensed, and armed security guards require excellent training, testing and licensing. A good security training program, gun and safety training program and state approved testing are often required. Once these requirements are met, however, plenty of interesting private security guard positions in a number of unique security fields which are available, such as:

  • VIP Security: Guarding VIP’s is not easy, and while it is often a high profile job, you must learn to make your presence known while staying in the background and out of the way.
  • Private Security: People have homes, small businesses, and other private interests that need regular security or sporadic security. Many people hire good private security firms to staff these needs.
  • Retail Loss Control: Retail stores can be driven out of business by shoplifters and inside theft, as well as negligence. Many retail chains and independent stores hire private security firms to help investigate and control retail loss prevention, and even to train their own staff how to identify and eliminate retail loss.
  • Construction Site Security: Construction sites are often left filled with unguarded equipment, tools and materials that can be worth millions, not to mention progress on a contracted site that can quickly be destroyed. Private security guards can help eliminate vandalism, theft and other problems.
  • Apartment or Condo Security: These are large complexes with many people living in them and coming and going. There is a constant need for security and surveillance, especially in off hours when people are away or asleep.
  • Special Event Security: Special events can cover everything from concerts to parades, from political rallies to movie premiers and book signings. Wherever there are special events there are people gathered, and where people gather so do risks.
  • Night Club Security: Many people getting together in clubs filled with alcohol, sometimes exotic dancers, and often DJ’s and bands, what could go wrong there? Private security is often used to protect busy nightclubs.
  • Fire Watch Security: This is a specialized type of security that is used to help prevent, identify and address fire hazards. These guards perform fire patrols, safety checks and maintain accurate fire logs.

If you are looking for a job as a security guard or private security consultant then give Fast Guard Service a try. Fast Guard Service is the nation’s best private security firm. They offer onsite Class D and Class G training, as well as, job placement. A satisfying career as a security guard is waiting for you.

Why Armed Guards Are Necessary During Live Events

In light of the recent terrorist attacks in the UK, especially in Manchester, the question of whether or not you should be planning live events with security measures that include armed guards becomes more prevalent.

The Manchester terror attacks were carried out in such a way that having armed guards would have done very little to protect the innocent victims that were killed during the attack. But the question was asked, what if the security guards at the Ariana Grande had stopped the terrorist before he detonated his suicide vest?

The guards were not armed and the likelihood is the security guards would have replaced the children of the concert as the victims of the attack but unless they were armed there would have been very little they could have done to stop the terrorist completely. Luck would have been needed to be on their side to have stopped the terrorist before he was able to commit his atrocity.

However, the most common strategy employed by Islamic fundamentalists in recent attacks has been the Marauding attacks. In Morocco, the Paris attacks, the recent London attacks. Especially the Paris attacks because a small concert in the center of Paris was also attacked. It’s clear to see that having armed security would have made a real difference and would have stopped a lot of innocent people from dying.

The Moroccan terrorist attack on the guests of a western holiday hotel is another example of where having armed security would have made a real difference. As the terrorists walked down the private beach and into the hotel it was the locals who risked their own life, being unarmed, that tried to protect the hotel’s residents. The security hid as they were not armed, being armed would have saved lives.

But it’s not just protection against terror attacks that make having armed guards a necessity. They act as a preventative tool against other more common issues getting out of control. At the same time, in today’s climate, they allow the people at the event to feel a sense of protection because increasingly public gatherings have become stressful.

However, it needs to be the right armed security guard. Having a loaded weapon in the vicinity of the general public increases the risk and danger to the people attending the live event. You want to ensure the security guards are ex-military or law enforcement, guards who have had more than just 8 or 16 hours training but rather security that has been extensively trained in assessing risks from terrorism and understand how to stay calm in the stressful situation.

You need professionals who add security and stability to a potentially catastrophic situation not make the situation worse due to their inexperience and lack of real training. Likewise, you don’t need your security team to escalate potentially harmless situations into something more deadly.

To summarize, it’s the current climate that dictates how we secure our live events, places where the general public gather in large numbers. And unfortunately, with the spate of terrorist attacks targeting public, events like concerts and sporting events are now prime targets and need to be protected.

However, it’s as important to have the right armed security personnel. Having novice “rent a cop” security with less than 20 hours training is likely to do more harm than good. You want ex-military or law enforcement to ensure your event is as secure as it can be.

Mobile Patrol Security Takes Off in 2017

More so in 2017 than ever, a mobile patrol guard is an extremely effective form of security, especially as a deterrent. They have shown that by removing unauthorized people from a specific location or site has a positive effect of reducing theft. It adds a layer of security that helps to give clients peace of mind and it’s also a cost-effective solution that is often ideal for securing a site or premises.

As with most things, there is no one solution for every commerical security sitaution. Depending on the type of business you have and the cost of assets and premises, a static security option might well be a better solution. However, if you are looking for a solution that effectively marries the level of security cover with the estimated level of risk then a mobile patrol solution could well be the most cost effective route for you..

Let’s take a look at some of the major positives for using a mobile patrol service in 2017

Plays the role of deterrent. Have patrolling guards in their uniforms means they are recognizable immediately, even from distance and people automatically factor in the added risk. Many crimes such as robbery are opportunist crimes. Just having a patrolling security presence is likely to make some perpetrators look for ‘softer’ targets

A Total Security Solution. Being mobile, you have security that’s able to manage larger areas of multiple locations.Whether on foot or by car they can secure perimeters and check the overall security of your premises. It has the flexibility that makes it work to fit your needs allowing it to feel like a bespoke solution at an off the peg price.

Cost-effective. In 2017 it’s a tough economic environment. Having a permanent security guard might be an expensive investment in security that’s not necessary. However, a mobile guard force is a much more cost effective solution and allows you to get the kind of coverage that might be the best fit for your business. You pay for what you utilize.

Immediate response. Having mobile patrol security means that you have security that’s able to react quickly to changing needs. Whereas the Police may respond slowly to a reported illegal activity the mobile patrol will be there much quicker and can react to the scene and protect your premises and assets accordingly.

In 2017 using a mobile guard service has become increasingly popular thanks to its abundance of advantages. It’s a very clear deterrent to lower the risk of possible threats to your business and property. It can be tailored to fit your every changing needs but at the same time, it offers a good return on investment and good value.

You have peace of mind that comes from a team of professionals watching over your business. Although there is no one solution that is the best security solution for every business, regardless of model and size, the flexibility of the mobile patrols solution means it has the capacity to be a good fit for more businesses, possibly yours too.

Cybersecurity Takes Off Amidst the Rise of Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies have been all over the news, especially financial news, for a few years now. Bitcoin is the most prominent form of cryptocurrency that people trade, but there are plenty of other forms of cryptocurrency as well, including Quark and other forms of altcoin. Essentially cryptocurrency is a digital form of currency that people use to purchase goods and services online, around the globe. Bitcoin has gone over the $1000 per BTC (or 1 coin = 1000) in the past, but generally trades at a rate between $250-$500 in value, so obviously there is a good deal of money tied up in bitcoin and other forms of cryptocurrency.

We live in a digital age and many people like the ease of using a digital currency, one that is not backed or printed by any particular government. But where there is money there is always an attempt to steal it. Money and trade attract crime. Cryptocurrency specifically attracts criminals because it is new, is independent of any specific government, and there is little regulation in regards to it or government protection of it to date. For this reason cryptocurrency is susceptible to many forms of criminal activity and cybercrime, therefore cybersecurity is more important now than ever before, especially to those who deal in cryptocurrency.

Here are a few ways that cybersecurity and good security firms can help protect people who accept or trade in various cryptocurrencies:

 

  • Hacking: Cybersecurity can help prevent costly hacking attempts that can not only ruin hardware, but that can destroy or steal cryptocurrency, and once cryptocurrency is gone, it’s gone for good. Possession is 10/10ths of the law when it comes to cryptocurrency, by design.
  • Identity Theft: Aside from having your bitcoin or litecoin or quark or other form of cryptocurrency stolen, which cannot be insured or replaced, when your cryptocurrency security is compromised information that can be used to steal your identity and destroy your credit will be compromised as well.
  • Fraud: Many people buy cryptocurrency, or sell it, using other forms of payment, such as checks or money orders. These types of payment can easily be forged and used to steal cryptocurrency. A good cybersecurity team will explain the many dangers and pitfalls associated with buying and selling cryptocurrency.
  • Enhanced Authentication: 2 step authentications can mean that every time you log into your crypto vault, only you know how, with a randomized generator that gives you a unique log in code that is used one time and then disposed of.
  • Cryptovault Protection: Cybersecurity methods like secure firewalls and 24/7 security can help protect the vault that protects your cryptocurrency.
  • Spyware: Yes, spyware and malware can be used to syphon and steal cryptocurrency from your hard drive or online vault. Top of the line cybersecurity can constantly update your system and protect your cryptocurrency and accounts from this dangerous threat.

Having a cyber security firm helping your data stay safe is absolutely vital for businesses big or small. If you need a professional service that has the skills and experience to protect your business from cybercrime or hacking to the extent it deserves call Fast Guard Service LLC.

Private Security is Vital for Marijuana Dispensaries

The level of security risk for marijuana dispensaries has grown exponentially in recent years. In Colorado, for example, statistics show that dispensaries are being robbed at an alarming 16.8% per year. If you were to look at other states that have similar laws you can expect to see similar levels of threat to a dispensary business

In some states, for example in Arizona, you have the added risk of Mexican drug cartels. They have shown a willingness to cross the border to carry out some very violent crimes. Additionally, they see the dispensaries as direct competitors. Often they have been witnessed or sometimes even arrested for transporting marijuana over the border. They have their own security too, armed with automatic weapons.

According to the figures as a dispensary owner, you owe it to you employees and your business to use security. Now the question is more targeted to the kind of security you look to secure your business with.

In states such as Arizona, it’s mandated that you have security. However, some short-sighted business owners might be looking to save money. It’s not uncommon to see 21-year-old security guards with absolutely no experience other than the compulsory 8 or 16-hour training which most states require for certification. Unfortunately, were something to happen and your dispensary was robbed the chances of your security guard being able to offer any protection is extremely low, the chances are they are more likely to put your employees and possibly members of the public at more risk.

A much better route would be to employ security professionals with previous law enforcement or military backgrounds. This is essential because both groups of people have received ongoing and detailed training on threat assessment. In most cases, it would have been assessing terror threats but it’s a skill that’s directly transferable into the security of a dispensary. Most importantly, they will have developed the skill of staying calm in stressful situations.

Security is not just a security guard. Employees need to be monitored just as vigilantly as outside threats. Just the nature of the business means there is a possibility your employees are approached by friends or family. Sometimes, unfortunately, cartel members. Additionally, your employee’s circumstance might change which is something you need to be aware of.

Having the right security includes monitoring employees. Their behavior and any changes in it. Their credit or spending habits. The kind of money involved with this type of business makes it a particular threat to these kinds of issues.

Finally, you have to bear in mind that in most situations, the local Police is unlikely to directly impact any robbery that occurs. The average Police response is 9 minutes and any professional robbery will last on average 3 minutes. That’s nothing negative against law enforcement it’s just a realization that you cannot expect the Police to protect your business or employees.

Having marijuana dispensary security is absolutely vital for marijuana dispensaries, and not just any security, you need a professional service that has the skills and experience to protect your business to the extent it deserves.
