Retail Loss Prevention

Retail loss is a big issue for retailers of all kinds, as it directly affects their profits and increases costs. Despite the best anti-theft devices and security precautions, thieves are able to get what they want out of your store. Managing loss yourself takes away from the time you have to invest in the operations of your store and results in a reduction of manpower, increase in hours worked and stress for you, and all without the results you hope for.

At Optimal Security Services, our retail loss prevention professionals are properly trained in dealing with people trying to steal products from your store. Our security personnel are trained in all the local laws regarding what we can do legally to minimize losses, and our guards will continuously patrol your store to ensure no one gets any opportunity whatsoever to steal your valuable assets. Our retail loss prevention services don’t just result in less theft – they also result in fewer headaches in managing liability. Let us assess your current security situation and provide the protection you need!

Mobile Patrol Inspection

Mobile Patrol Inspection is a cost effective way to keep your assets safe. If you do not need guards posted near your premises 24/7, but you still need an observant eye to help deter theft and vandalism, you can have our mobile patrol inspection unit visit the area over set intervals to ensure that everything is safe and secure.

Mobile patrol inspections include a full perimeter inspection that can include both interior and exterior. Once the perimeter is cleared, the mobile patrol inspection unit will leave your location to inspect other locations. These short-intercal security services are ideal in areas where crime is not normal or expected, but there are still assets that warrant protection such as financial institutions and construction sites.

What to Look For in a Security Company

When you are contemplating whether or not you should invest the money in hiring a third-party security agency, chances are you have already decided you need the added protection, but are really debating who you can trust and where you should invest. When you are looking for a security services company, there are a few things that you can look for to help you make the best decision possible.

Who Accepts the Liability?

If the security company is professional and legitimate, they will accept the responsibility for their employees. Not only does this include liability in the event that there is an injury or incident, but also for conducting thorough background checks, vetting employees, and training.

Don’t be afraid to ask for licensure and insurance. The agency should be able to supply a state license and show proof of insurance for the company and its employees. If the agency provides armed guards, you can ask for validation of training and verification of clean background checks.

Is the security company service oriented?

If you are hiring armed mobile patrol inspectors, customer service may not be one of the most important things to consider. However, if you are hiring roving security guards for your event or loss prevention specialists for your store, you’ll want security guards that present a stern image that deters theft, while also making your guests and customers feel welcome and invited. Regardless of why you are hiring a security service or what services you are looking for from them, you’ll want to make sure that you are treated well as their customer.

Is Security the Company’s Main Focus?

Before hiring a security service, you’ll want to make sure that security services are their main focus and not an add-on service to something else. When a handyman or a landscaper offers security services, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it isn’t quality, but it does mean that that is not their main focus, so they may not be as up to date on training and the latest technology.

At Optimal Security, security is our business! Our only other services include security guard training services and concealed carry classes. We take security seriously, and it shows!

What is the Company’s Reputation?

For any service, you’ll want to do some research on what the company’s reputation is. You want to do business with a company that is founded on honesty and integrity and known for doing what it is they claim to do. With security companies, you’ll want one that is known for providing quality security services and mitigating potential situations.

You can ask other people or companies for advice on a security company that they have trusted. You can read through online testimonials and reviews, or use other platforms that help you discover what the company is known for and what you can expect from their services.

If you are looking for a quality security company to protect your business and assets, contact the security professionals at Optimal Security.

Armed Vs. Unarmed Guard: Which Do You Need?

Upon initial consideration of hiring a security services company, it may seem like a no-brainer to opt for armed guards because weapons equals security, right? This is not necessarily the case and you will not always need the services of armed guards. To help you decide whether you want armed or unarmed security guards, there are a few factors to consider.

Keep in mind that unarmed security guards are still highly trained in de escalation techniques, manual takedowns, and can carry some non-lethal weapons that offer additional protection including tasers, batons, and sprays. The absence of a lethal weapon on a trained security guard, does not mean there is a compromise in effectiveness in the security that they offer.

What is Being Protected.

One of the biggest considerations is what is being protected and from what. If there are highly-sought after, priceless valuables or a high-profile person, armed guards may be the smarter of two options. The presence of lethal weapons may discourage attempts of violence or theft to begin with, and in the event that a perpetrator is armed, an armed guard can match weapons and be more effective at de escalating a situation.

However, if you are protecting a building or need loss prevention services, there is no reason to have an armed guard posted. Lethal weapons in a retail store can actually deter hopeful shoppers from entering your shop if they feel uncomfortable around weapons. Additionally, in the presence of weapons, some people may feel like your establishment is not a safe place to be if protecting it warrants lethal weapons, and may avoid entering. If the armed guards will be behind the scenes, it may be worth it, but otherwise, you may want to consider unarmed guards instead.

How Much Are You Looking to Spend?

In general, unarmed guards will cost less to hire than armed guards. This has a lot to do with liability and insurance costs. Keep in mind, that in addition to the security company’s increased fees for armed services, your own insurance may go up slightly. If you are protecting something valuable or there is a high potential for violence, it is worth the additional cost to hire armed guards.

If you are unsure whether you would be better served by unarmed or armed guards, you do not have to make the decision alone! At Optimal Security Services, our professionally trained staff can help you assess your security needs and provide the right detail to service you the best.
