What are the essential roles security guards provide?

The reasons are endless to serve and protect our communities. Schools, hospitals, property management groups, grocery stores, you name it, a security guard is a role where you are the local hero. Talk about becoming a vigilante!  

Is there a comparison between a vigilante to a security guard? We are fighting for a specific cause to help our local police and residents so, as far as Regal is concerned, we don’t see much of a difference. If you are a passionate, dedicated individual whose goal is to suppress crime and help serve their community then Regal Security has the uniform that fits your goals.

With multiple responsibilities, the role of a security guard is never the same. It’s opening up to the public to build trusted relationships to protect and serve their community. 

Being a part of a front line, essential service, comes with responsibility. 

Duties consist of and are not limited to:

  • Patrolling areas to ensure no unidentified patrons have entered at a certain time
  • Creating daily reports of what was evaluated that day
  • Informing staff of potential threats or news, whether being traffic related, person related, or building related
  • Communicating with your community about the importance of maintaining security and safety
