Enhancing Safety and Security in Denver Metro Area: A Professional Perspective
Private Security Guard and Patrol services played an essential role in community safety for hundred of years. Modern business expansion and dramatic demographic changes placed the Security Guard Industry on the front lines. Security officers are often the first and the last line of defense and they play an important role in keeping the community safer. According to Wall Street Journal there are 1.7 million private security guards in the US, outnumbering 3 to 1 law enforcement officers. Despite the popular beliefs and rumors about security guards, the reality is that the private security guard and patrol industry remains the backbone of community safety and security. The same Wall Street Journal source credited private security guards for saving almost all of the 3,700 American lives during the 9/11 terrorist attack. Many private security officers lost their lives to save others, and little credit was given to them.
Denver Metro Area development and latest demographic changes increased the pressure on security guard and patrol industry. Security officers are required to know much more and to perform at much higher standards. In this article I would limit my topic to safety and security guards efficiency assessment in four main areas: industrial, commercial, residential, and government sector. Denver residential communities protected by private security guards benefit from stricter access control, fire watch service, video surveillance monitoring, safety and security hazards detection and prevention, and a considerable amount of customer service, such as courtesy escorts, deliveries, maintenance assistance, and parking lots management and enforcement.
Business around Colorado are protected by security guards performing armed and unarmed security services, foot patrols, access control, IT physical security, fire watch, alarm control and monitoring, facility maintenance assistance, and may other customized safety and security services. Security guards are responsible of the safety and security of people and their property.
During the Cirque Du Soleil international show “Alegria” Denver Security Services guards provided certified first aid to virtually hundred of construction workers and patrons. When a person was down with a heart attack or bleeding from a head injury, or fainting, or suffering other injuries security officers acted as a team and saved lives. Some of them provided first aid; some others helped Emergency, Fire Department, and Denver Police Department to reach the critical area in no time. Security officers managed to get much need help in less than 2 minutes by signaling authorities to reach one patron out of 2500 present during the show. This is just example out of thousands.
An important contribution of contract security guarding business is provided to the vast and ever growing industrial development in Colorado. From construction sites to universities, to hospitals, to construction sites to warehouses and everything in between, security guards are making an important contribution in keeping Denver people safe and their property untouched. In fact, Denver Security Services officer never lost a dime worth of property since 2001 when the company was incorporated. Never a claim was filed against us and the company never lost a client because quality of services. How many other security guard and patrol companies could claim this record earned through hard work and self-sacrifice? Not many perhaps.
