WHY ARMED SECURITY OFFICERS?
As a full-service security company in the Chicago area, American can provide a variety of security guards. While many security issues are easily addressed using unarmed security services, some situations call for an armed security officer instead.
An armed security officer offers a higher degree of safety and security for a client with elevated risk profiles. Our trained professionals are ready to secure your employees, customers and property from a wide range of threats, both internal and external.
The typical benefits of security guards include:
Regardless of whether you choose armed or unarmed personnel, the sight of professional, uniformed security officers goes a long way toward maximizing the safety and security of your property and personnel.
INCIDENT DE-ESCALATION AND REPORTING
During training, we instruct our officers to use verbal de-escalation techniques whenever possible to minimize the risk of injury to personnel. In an era of escalating threat of confrontation, effective security guard services must include this critical skill.
Our officers write daily or periodic reports as desired by the client, giving you insight into how our security services are performed. Additionally, following an incident, guards will submit electronic incident reports that are easily viewed by the client.
While some clients may wish for a static security guard, others may benefit from having their security officers conduct routine foot patrols. This especially beneficial for clients with large or complex properties, where our officers can check for trespassers, monitor for safety situations and increase the scope of visible deterrence.
Allowing the right people onto the property – and keeping the wrong ones out – is critical to ensuring the safety of our clients. As part of our security services, a security officer can screen visitors, conduct personnel checks and verify that access points are kept secure.
OUR SECURITY GUARD TRAINING
Through training and selection, we provide security guards with professionalism, reliability and attention to detail. Our officers are screened for suitability and customer service potential at each client location, as we understand security is often a part of your own team.
Armed security officers are licensed and demonstrate proficiency with their duty weapon. Our training emphasizes de-escalation and escalation of force to minimize the risk of injury; less-than-lethal options are always preferred.
No security company is the same as another, which means no security guards are the same as others. Make sure you choose the right one!
OUR TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGE
We field the latest in mobile technology to ensure your assigned officers are on site and providing exceptional guard services. Electronic timekeeping and reporting streamlines engagement between American and the client, minimizing administrative burden while also enabling real-time access to your security information.
Additionally, we staff a 24/7 Dispatch service so that our guards and clients can always speak to a live person who can coordinate security services and provide updates in the event of an emergency.
