Los Angeles is both a city and a county in Southern California. It is the second most populous city in the United States, and with this massive amount of people comes a lot of problems.
The many challenges Southern California faces include increasing homelessness, certain crimes spiking, and to be frank the intersection of these two factors. The homeless populations living in some of the areas we provide unarmed and armed security services have become emboldened in recent years.
Sanctuary cities have turned into hot spots for crime and other nefarious activity, as homeless individuals have begun to test the limits of what they are allowed to get away with. Because of the changing and challenging landscape of life in Los Angeles, security services are more important than they have ever been.
Municipalities are turning to security firms to shore up the weaknesses in their physical locations. Government sites are using security to protect the outer limits of their property. Corporations and even private residences need security in certain areas just to maintain a sense of decorum and civility on their grounds.
Unarmed standing guards and vehicle patrols are becoming so common that you see as many of us as you do police cars in certain locations.
UNARMED SECURITY HAS PROVEN RESULTS
The primary directive of our unarmed security guards has always been to observe and report. The more vigilant we are, the more effective our services become. Dealing with certain challenges like interactions with homeless individuals needs to be handled professionally and legally. But our specific training on Community Outreach gives our guards an edge in learning on how to deal with everything they may face.
Respect and appreciation for security services is also growing. The comical idea of the mall cop is fading as people everywhere realize that having another set of vigilant eyes and ears, as well as a capable person with specific training you can rely on is more and more important. Even police departments are working directly with and trusting Los Angeles security guard services providers.
