Protecting inventory, employees and customers is a high priority of retail stores.
A retail security officer’s main job is to keep a watchful eye on stock, staff and the customers to prevent any theft or damage from taking place from within the store.
Providing a visible presence inside and outside of the store serves to deter potential criminal activity and provide a safe and secure environment for the employees and customers. H&P Protective Services provides a large visible presence with mobile and foot patrols in the parking facilities, and foot patrols within the stores. Our priority is to provide professional security guards who are trained to protect inventory, employees, and customers within your location.
Organizations such as Disney, Five Below, and T-Mobile trust H&P to provide highly trained and experienced security guards to secure their inventory from theft, as well as protect their valued employees.
Security guards can be used to prevent crimes, maintain security, assist customers and employees, prevent theft by customers or employees, and detain shoplifting suspects until the police arrive, or patrol parking lots. The presence of a security guard at a business can also provide peace of mind and a sense of security to the business owner, employees and customers. Some businesses, such as convenience stores, banks and retail stores, may be more of a target for criminals and petty thieves. Having security guards at your retail location lets customers know that you are concerned about their safety and willing to take steps to ensure it. Security guards are often needed at businesses that deal in very high-end merchandise or are located in high-crime areas.
Organizations such as Pewabic Pottery required H&P Protective Services to provide security guards to protect paintings and exhibits by watching people and inspecting packages entering and leaving the building.
Thieves will think twice about targeting a business that has uniformed protection. H&P security guards are trained to look for suspicious activity. They can assess a situation and react to security breaches. Having a guard is an excellent visual deterrent than just camera surveillance or a standard security system. It sends a message to potential criminals that you are serious about the security of your business.
