You’ve recently decided to hire a security agency but you don’t know who to contact. You rush to google and frantically enter “Security Agency”, “Security Guard” or an assortment of key words into google. After deciding to click on the most relevant, you are now on the phone, possibly on hold, waiting to speak. After several minutes you are speaking with a live representative. They may not know your exact needs or locale due to their fixed location. The services they offer seem great, and their reach abundant but, they typically lean on local vendors or sub-contractors to fulfill “their” (Client) needs. The field operators nine times out of ten are sub-contracted vendors. Here are some of the reasons why hiring a local security agency may be beneficial:
- Direct Communication
- Live Updates
- Are they located within a reasonable distance?
- Bar-none Customer Service
All these things place the Client at a huge tactical advantage when facing any security related challenges.
Another reason you may want to hire a local company, is due to ethics. The security industry in whole has been under fire over the last several decades for providing security work without having the correct credentials.
- Security Licensure (Qualifying Party)
- Trained and Qualified Agents
Doing your homework on the Security Agency you choose will also be at your benefit. Check their social media pages, reviews and their feedback from the locals.
- Have they provided the services you seek before?
- Do they have the tools to complete the task?
- Will they remain professional at all times?
We seek to educate the reader in this post in hopes they find the right fit for their needs. It is paramount that each and every Client has their needs identified and understood from the start.
