1. To Be Clearly Visible
One of the duties of American Power Security guards is to be visible, as this would deter criminals. Most burglars, shoplifters, muggers, and other criminals would think twice if they see a security guard on duty. So, being visible is one of the ways by which our security guards foil theft, damage, personal injury, and other dastardly acts.
2. To Be Vigilant
American Power security guard watches out for any strange thing that may mean harm. Our guards detect unusual activities and sense them when someone is cleverly trying to divert a guard’s attention off his/her duty. And can respond quickly to whatever seen.
3. To Respond Quickly and Correctly During Crisis
Not only do our security guards sense crisis, but they act fast to control the situation. Our security guards are always alert to avoid being caught unawares. How a security guard responds to crisis varies depending on the threat.
4. Observing and Reporting
Even after a dangerous situation has been successfully averted, our security guard does not relax yet. He/she keeps observing until entirely sure that there are no more problems. After a crisis, our security guard reports the incident to a supervisor, the police, or the appropriate authorities. This way, further steps would be taken to avert a future recurrence.
5. Checking and Monitoring
American Power Security Guards are required to maintain certain rules and policies as laid down by the client. Clients may require visitors be searched before granted entry or that only visitors for which an appointment has been made should be allowed on the property. In such cases, our security guard follows the client’s instructions to check visitors and ensure that all the clients’ rules are obeyed.
6. Maintain Safety Among People
Our security guards are usually present in large gatherings, such as parties and political or religious assemblies. This presence is to ensure the safety of lives and property. It also prevents stampedes and breakdown of law and order. Our team can also give tips and precautions to the client on how to avoid security-threatening situations. He/she will also explain the likely consequences of ignoring these tips.
7. Receiving Guests
If our security guard is positioned at an entrance, chances are, he/she will double as a receptionist and be the first to welcome guests and show them their way. This additional duty fit our security guards who are friendly, approachable, and willing to help others.
8. Camera Watch and Performing Other Special Duties
Our security guards can watch and monitor cameras on the client’s site to make sure no suspicious activities are taking place at the site and that it’s fully secure.
9. Check Parking Permits and Allow Authorized Vehicles/Personnel Only
American Power Security Guards can issue parking citations and call towing companies as instructed by the client and or its management.
