While masks protect us from COVID-19, they also make it easy for criminals to hide until it is too late. The average person is not trained to distinguish between genuine customers and loiters or suspicious delinquents; trained security officers know what to look for and how to respond quickly to limit damage and harm.
Global Security Solutions’ security officers offer your property protection against damage, theft, burglary, and robbery, benefiting your business, your employees, and your customers. The presence of a security guard encourages patrons to visit your store, and customers who feel safe during their visit are more likely to return. The presence of a security guard also deters crime by discouraging malevolent persons from acting out against your store. Should crime occur, onsite security guards put a halt to it immediately.
GSS officers comply with health and safety standards in effect after COVID-19 and offer the same of your employees and customers—our officers will verify and require that all persons on your store grounds properly maintain guidelines and laws in place, such as wearing a face mask to cover both mouth and nose and maintaining proper social distancing.
