For some people, an armed security guard may feel like a bit of a drastic measure. But, there are more situations than you may think where it is appropriate to work with an armed guard/s. In today’s blog at Tactical Response Security, we discuss a few scenarios and situations that will have the greatest benefit from an armed security service. Keep reading to learn more or reach out to our team at Tactical Response Security at any time.
Businesses That Work With High-Value Goods
Banks are an obvious business where an armed security guard can reduce risk, but many other businesses can find benefit in protecting their goods with armed security as well. Institutions such as high-end jewelry stores, weapons retailers, or even businesses with valuable information can all be targets for thieves and ne’er do wells. You can drastically decrease your risk of theft with a well-trained, armed security guard/s.
It’s unfortunate, but some areas are significantly more prone to crime and theft than others. If you live in an area that just recently had a spike in the crime rate or has had a consistently high crime rate for years now, armed security can help you protect the business you’ve worked so hard for. Vandals, thieves, and people looking for a fight think twice when there is an armed and trained professional looking out for you.
Your Employees Don’t Feel Safe
Regardless of the business you are in, the times, or the area you live in, every employee should feel safe at work. It’s the responsibility of the business owner to make sure that each and every individual feels safe while at work. In the event that your employees aren’t feeling safe, an armed security detail, either temporary or permanent, is an effective way to ensure your employees can focus on the task at hand rather than their safety.
Sometimes, there is no avoiding it. Schools and businesses often have high-profile individuals in attendance. When that is the case, your establishment is at higher risk and may become a target. When you have a high-profile employee or student, armed security may be the perfect solution for protecting the individual and your establishment alike.

In today’s day and age, it’s all too common for a business, school, or other establishments to receive dangerous threats. Disgruntled employees, disturbed individuals, or other parties may try to scare your business with threats of violence or blackmail. In some situations, these individuals may even take action/seek revenge against your establishment rather than just making empty threats. Either way, situations such as these are textbook examples where armed security can make a world of difference.

As with any security service, investing in professional unarmed security is going to help you mitigate security risks you have facing your business — and more effectively than only using security cameras and other security measures at that. This is because you have a highly-trained, well-equipped, and experienced unarmed security guard monitoring your business, identifying risks and threats, and overall, keeping the peace when they need to.
Protection from a Professional Security Expert
First and foremost, the simple presence of a security guard is usually enough to deter petty theft and rowdy patrons. What’s more, the experts at Tactical Response Security are skilled enough to identify most issues before they arise and will be able to prevent trouble. That said, in the event that action needs to be taken, one of our unarmed security guards is exactly who you want to have around. Again, we train vigorously to prepare our guards for all situations, equip them with the fast thinking and decision making skills needed for the job, and we maintain a standard of excellence unmatched by our competitors.
Peace of Mind
Regardless of how often they need to spring into action, simply having unarmed security on your property is going to help offer peace of mind to everyone involved, from you to your employees and customers. At the most minimal, the presence of unarmed security shows you’re prepared for anything without brandishing lethal weapons that could cause uneasiness, or even seem overboard depending on your business’ image. And if your unarmed security ever needs to spring into action, your customers and employees will see, in practice, how well trained and effective unarmed security guards are at Tactical Response Security.
An Affordable Form of Security
Finally, another benefit to consider when it comes to unarmed security is that it’s the most affordable way to get a professional security guard on-site. This is not because they’re less skilled or capable, but instead, unarmed security guards don’t require the licensing and insurance that armed security guards require, or the equipment. While cost is an important factor for any business, we suggest not letting this be the only factor when determining what type of security you’re going to use. If your business faces pertinent risks, the benefits of hiring armed guards may outweigh the cost differential.
Tactical Response Security
While there are amazing benefits to using unarmed security, the best way to determine which security features are best-suited for your business is to consult with our professional security experts. We can provide a risk analysis to determine exactly what you need to be prepared against, and then we’ll outline the different options you have available to meet your needs.
Staying Safe In Your NeighborhoodWhether you’re new to Philly or you’ve been here some time, it’s vital that you understand the area you live in. There are so many great ways to do this, but let’s look at a few in-depth.
Get To Know Your NeighborsFor starters, get to know your neighbors. Sure, you may not develop relationships with all of your neighbors, but if you can get to know any of them, it will be in your best interest. For one, you’ll develop some great connections in your neighborhood. Truthfully, if you’re not doing this, you’re missing out in general! The community found in each and every Philadelphia neighborhood is a beautiful thing that you should embrace and enjoy! However, in terms of safety, by having connections in your neighborhood, you’ll have people who are looking out for you. They’ll know your name, where you live, and who you live with (if you live with anyone at all). This means that if a suspicious character is moseying around your home or apartment, a neighbor will likely notice and make sure there isn’t an issue. Another situation where knowing your neighbors can be incredibly beneficial is when you’re getting unwanted or troubling attention from a stranger. For instance, if you’re walking home and someone is following or harassing you, a neighbor you have a relationship will likely step in and make sure you’re okay. Essentially, by developing relationships with your neighbors, you’ll be creating a support network in every sense. Get Intimate With Your Neighborhood’s Layout Next up, get to know your city streets. Think about the places you’re going to be going the most — your job, your preferred grocery stores, and your public transportation stops to name a few. Understand the different routes you can take to get to those destinations, and spend some time choosing the best routes. Consider if the route will be well-lit during the evening or night, what areas your route passes through, and how isolated you will be when traveling certain routes. From here, make a decision based on which route(s) will be the safest. And remember, if you’re uncomfortable walking at any point, consider calling a ride-share program like Uber, Lyft, or a local taxi company. Just be sure to confirm that the right driver is picking you up when they arrive. Next, you want to be sure that you understand some areas that you can go to in the event you’re feeling unsafe on the street. Well-lit, public places are where you should head, as there will be people around. In the event that you’re being followed, chances are they’ll leave you alone once you’re surrounded by other people. Finally, always be on alert. This isn’t to say that you should always be paranoid, but just be vigilant. This is all information you’ve heard before, but never sit a drink down unattended, keep tabs on your belongings if a stranger randomly engages you, and just be wary of suspicious behavior.
Staying Safe In Your HomeNow that we know some basics about staying safe in your neighborhood, let’s talk about staying safe in your home. Obviously, we always want to stay and feel safe, but that’s especially true when it comes to our homes. Feeling secure in your home is essential to getting rest and having peace of mind.
Secure EntrancesChances are, no one’s going to break into your home through a wall. If your home gets broken into, it’s going to be through a door or window. Because of this, you want to ensure that any potential point of entry is well secured. For starters, make sure you have reliable locks on your doors and windows. Deadbolts are great, affordable, and come in a variety of intensities. You can invest in a deadbolt that is reliable and gives you peace of mind. Additionally, make sure you have a sturdy front door. The last thing you want is a hollow door that could literally be kicked or punched through. We recommend a hardwood door or a steel door. If you want to take an extra step, you can find some unique and effective door and window security gadgets! The other aspect of securing your entrances is to invest in a security system. When the system is set, it will be sounded if a door or window opens before it’s disarmed. In 2020, there are a litany of home security system providers, so we recommend making your decision based on your needs and budget.
Electric Timers Are Your FriendIt’s no secret that the easiest targets are what get chosen by burglars. So what makes an easy target? First off, if no one is home. But also, if your home is clearly unsecure, you could become a target for burglary. To touch back on our last point, if you have a security system in place, a simple sign saying so in your window could be enough to deter a burglar. Moving on to this next point, by using lights when you’re not home, that could also be enough to deter a potential home invader. However, if you were to just leave your lights on all-day, every day you’d run up your electric bill really fast! So instead, invest in electronic timers. You can set these up on lamps or even your TV so they’ll turn on at a specific time. If you’re out of your home each evening, put some lights on a timer! This will give the impression that you’re home, even when you’re not. Staying Safe When You Don’t Feel Safe While we wish this wasn’t the reality, there are times when we don’t feel safe. Sure, sometimes it might be all in our heads, but other times there is a real threat that you’ve been exposed to. It can come in the form of an ex-spouse, stalker, the opposition of a high-profile dispute you’re a part of, and much more. In these situations, don’t leave your safety in your own hands, hire the professionals. At Tactical Response Security, we provide executive protection services to Philadelphia. While this sounds fancy, think of it as a personal bodyguard who’s wholly dedicated to the safety of you and your circle. Our executive protection services in Philadelphia utilize security experts who know how to secure a location, survey for any suspicious or threatening individuals, and more. So if you’re feeling unsafe in your home or just in general, consider utilizing executive protection services from Philadelphia’s best security company.

Save MoneyWhen you own a business, saving money can truly be a saving grace. Plus, who doesn’t appreciate having some extra money they can use to fund projects or pay off expenses? So how can hiring an armed security service save you money? It’s actually quite simple. Think about it, if you’re in need of armed security for your business, you have two options: train your own guards, or contract a company to secure your business. While training your own security guards may seem like the better solution, it’s not. Training your own security guards means you’ll be spending cash to train (and you’ll probably have to hire an outside source to train your guards). You’ll have to put them on salary, provide benefits, and provide potential for upward movement — all factors that will quickly, and astronomically, add expenses to your ever-growing list. When you invest in expert security services like we provide at Tactical Response Security, not only will you pay a fraction of the price it would cost to train and supply your own security, but you can also rest assured that you’re getting top-tier security experts who you can rely on to keep your business safe and secure.
Peace Of MindOur last point leads directly into the next. A major, and perhaps the most obvious benefit of hiring armed security for your business is that you can have peace of mind knowing that expert security personnel are present and wholly dedicated to securing you, your business, and your clients. Again, think of how hiring a professional armed security service will make you feel as opposed to hiring random, independent security guards or training you own. If you’re doing the latter, can you truly be certain that they will know how to react in a pivotal moment? Although they might say they’ve been trained in handling firearms, can you be certain without certifications and credentials? Long story short, you can never be certain that you’re dealing with the real thing when you’re hiring independently or training your own security. With a certified, professional security service provider like Tactical response Security, you can be certain that you’re getting the best services available. We’re professionals, and our entire company is dedicated to training and producing the best security personnel in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. We have the experience, skills, and systems in place that allow us to create security solutions tailored to your specific needs, meaning you can be confident that you’re secure.
LiabilityAnother amazing reason to recruit a professional armed security guard is that you won’t have to worry about being liable. If you are responsible for security guards that you have trained or hired independently, you’ll be liable for the actions they take and the repercussions of those actions. When you work with Tactical Response Security, we’re liable for what our security personnel do. We take care of insurance, and are responsible for our employees. This contributes to your peace of mind in the sense that it is one less thing that you have to worry about. Firearms are huge responsibilities, so not only are you removing the risk of being liable and derailing your business in the event of a problem, but you’re also placing your security in the hands of a company that recognizes that responsibility, holds themselves accountable for the services they provide, and will step up in the (extremely unlikely) event that a mistake is made.
A Secure, Comfortable ReputationSigns of authority demand respect, everyone knows this. So, a direct benefit of utilizing a professional recognized security firm like Tactical Response Security is that your business will have a great reputation. Not only will armed security deter criminal activity by simply being present, but people will also feel safe knowing that a professional security guard is there to respond to any threatening situations. And that’s just the face-value benefit. Armed security guards also pose a benefit in the sense that they will be the first impression of your business. Yes, like we mentioned above, a major aspect of this is simply the presence of a safety measure. But going further, your security guard will be a friendly, approachable, and reliable aspect of your company. This is especially the case when you work with Tactical Response Security. Our security guards are experts at what they do. They can survey a room or area, recognize threats, and are always prepared to take action at the drop of a hat. While some might worry that an armed security guard might create an ominous, scrutinizing atmosphere, that’s never the case with Tactical Response Security. We’re so well versed and experienced with the services we offer, that we don’t present an atmosphere where every patron of your business feels watched, judged, and uneasy. In fact, it’s quite the contrary. Our armed security guards will make your patrons feel safe, secure, and welcomed at your place of work.
Optimal AwarenessFinally, you’ll experience the benefit of optimal awareness of your business, its security, and any threats that may need to be addressed. For instance, take a look at the state of your business without professional security services. Yes, you may have video surveillance. Yes, you may have invested in security measures like safes, panic buttons, and even personal protection. But can you say you’re getting the most out of it? Most likely, the answer is no. That’s where designated, professional security guards come into play. Their sole purpose is to protect you and your assets. This means you’ll have dedicated eyes on whatever it is you need. Perhaps you’d like an armed guard overseeing transactions, in a marijuana dispensary. Or maybe you need someone to focus on the surveillance footage to identify a person who has been shoplifting. Armed security gives you another set of hands who can do that, and who knows what they’re doing. Ultimately, an armed security guard is the final piece in completing the puzzle of business security.

High Profile IndividualsIn today’s world, “High Profile” can mean a lot of things. Maybe you’ve just acquired a large sum of money via inheritance or lottery winnings. Perhaps you’re a key witness to a major criminal case. You could even be someone who’s been involved in a nationwide controversy. Being high profile can encompass many different scenarios. When your personal business is in the public eye, that draws attention. While sometimes that can be a good thing, other times it can put a target on your back — literally. Either way, when a high profile individual enlists executive protection, especially the executive protection services from Tactical Response Security, they can rest assured that they’re safe which then allows them to focus on dealing with the events that have made them high profile.
CEOs/Business OwnersWhile CEOs and business owners could fall into the category of a high profile individual, their situations and the reasoning for why they should have executive protection are a bit different. The main difference is that the high profile individuals we mentioned above are usually only in the public eye for a short amount of time. Once their case is over, they’ve dealt with their lottery winnings, or the controversy has died down, so the potential risk against their person has died down as well. This isn’t necessarily the case for CEOs and business owners. This is because where high profile individuals are able to step out of the spotlight after some time, a CEO or business owner is always going to be a symbol of wealth, success, and power. Thus, they’re going to remain at risk of someone trying effect or benefit from their status. While there’s no use in fantasizing about all the different scenarios where someone may want to hurt, rob, or kidnap a CEO or business owner, it is important that we recognize the possibility. When a CEO or business owner recruits executive protection, they’re able to have peace of mind knowing that a trusted guard is always watching their back. That way, they can continue with business as usual and their bettering of the city of Philadelphia.
The WealthySimilar to CEOs and business owners, there is a consistent risk posed to wealthy individuals. Often times, it’s people with wealth who are scoped out by thieves, and that won’t change as long as said individual is wealthy. Enlisting executive protection to keep a wealthy person safe is a great idea because, although being the target of robbery or harm shouldn’t be a cause of paranoia, it’s a definite reason to invest in protection. When investing in elite executive protection, like the executive protection services we offer at Tactical Response Security, you’re investing your wealth in the reason for your wealth — yourself.
People Who Handle Your Money And/Or ValuablesIf you’re a business owner who is constantly taking valuables from your place of work to the bank or if you’re in the business of transporting valuables, executive protection is a must. An unprotected transport of valuable materials, be it money, priceless goods, or artifacts, is easy pickings for experienced thieves. However, if you’re transporting valuables and you have executive protection experts in tow, just the mere presence of security will likely deter criminals. That being said, in the event that someone would attempt to rob you, you’d have expert protections in place that will keep you safe and protect your valuables. When the transport of valuables is a commonplace happening in your life, it’s important that you invest in security measures. It’s a lot like wearing a seat belt, you don’t realize how important it is until you need it. And if you don’t have it when you need it, well, you’re out of luck.
Recent Divorcees And Victims Of DisputesThis is an often overlooked benefit of executive protection. In the event of a bitter divorce or a situation where a victim has escaped an abusive environment, executive protection can not only provide expert security services to keep the affected person safe, but they can also provide much needed peace of mind. Divorce and abuse are two traumatic events that can detrimentally affect one’s sense of security and comfort. By enlisting executive protection, the affected person will have a person who they can trust, entirely dedicated to their security and safety. It’s truly making the best of a terrible situation, as the person will be able to rest assured that someone has their back, and they can put the traumatic events of the past behind them.
Tactical Response SecurityAt Tactical Response Security, we’re dedicated to keeping people safe and providing an unwavering sense of security and stability. Our company offers security experts who are capable of providing armed and unarmed security services, and understand how to properly secure and survey a location to ensure it’s safe.

As a small business owner, you’ve already got more than enough to think about all day. Employee rosters, shipping manifests, customer requests and so much more clutter your thoughts and your desk. Hiring security for your business in Philadelphia might be the last thing on your mind, but when things start to go missing, or you find your employees are getting accosted after work, it might move higher up the priority list.
Still debating whether you need a security guard? Here are the common challenges small businesses face that could be lessened by the presence of a security guard.
Your Business Is In A High Crime Area
Depending on your location in Philadelphia, your business might be at greater risk than in other areas. Because of lighting, police presence, as well as the neighboring businesses, your own business might be the target of break-ins and robberies, or worse.
You’re Suffering From Theft and Shrinkage
If you run a storefront, your products are the lifeblood of your business. But if you’re finding more and more product disappearing off the shelves, it’s time to reassess if you need someone keeping an eye on things. Theft is the result of customers or petty criminals taking your product. Shrinkage is when your own employees take from your business.
You’re Facing Parking Lot Issues
In some cases, your parking lot may be preventing your customers or your employees from getting through the doors of your business. Your customers and employees might be approached by threatening individuals who demand their money, time, or safety. The security of your parking lot translates to the financial security of your small business.
Your Business Serves Alcohol
If you own a restaurant, bar, brewery, or club, you already know what too much alcohol can do to someone. But if your staff doesn’t feel comfortable confronting someone who’s had too much to drink, what are you supposed to do? Left unchecked, an intoxicated individual can create property damage and scare away potential customers.
Your Business Doesn’t Have a Great Safety Record
If you’re frequently the target of break-ins or robberies, news of this will spread around. You’ll find that once regular customers will choose to visit other businesses instead. You might have a hard time hiring new employees as old ones leave. How others perceive the safety and security of your business can directly affect your bottom line.
Your Concerned About Your Own Safety
It’s hard to put a price on peace of mind, but if you constantly feel under threat of harm or robbery while you’re at work, that’s probably the best sign that it’s time to hire a security guard for your Philadelphia business.
We’re A Leading Security Company In Philadelphia

When it comes to private security, there are few more effective measures that working with a bodyguard. It’s one of the reasons that high-profile celebrities and politicians alike often have a team of personal guards working with them at all times.
Bodyguards are Versatile
Often thought of as only able to stop a bullet if needed, bodyguards are more than just human shields. Indeed, they can also be dispatched to carry out certain special tasks. It can be as simple as a quick errand, but they can also coordinate with local security groups as you travel. Your personal bodyguard acts as your connection to wider safety networks.
Bodyguards can also assist those who have special needs or struggle to fulfill certain tasks. It can be something as simple as getting in and out of vehicles, moving through buildings or up and down stairs, or might have a mental condition that requires close monitoring.
Bodyguards are Security Specialists
With extensive training, bodyguards can asses the features and characteristics of a room or area that can affect how secure a space really is. With this information in mind, they’ll change your travel plans or their approach to address these concerns. As security specialists, they’re constantly changing their strategies to keep you safe, no matter the conditions.
Bodyguards are Capable of More Than Just Security
At Tactical Response Security, many of our executive protection personnel are former military or law enforcement. This means that they have worked in diverse situations and with a wide variety of people. Their experience not only informs their work but also their outlook on life. Your personal bodyguard may serve as a sort of advisor or counselor for some of your day-to-day tasks.
Bodyguards are Trained to Recognize Non-Verbal Cues
When you’re interacting with others in a crowd of people, your bodyguard is constantly monitoring the conversation, as well as the patterns and behaviors of those around you. With careful practice, bodyguard’s have learned to recognize the non-verbal cues that signal that someone may have the intent to harm you or others near you. This training allows them to dynamically respond to a situation before it even occurs.
Bodyguards Have a Variety of Emergency Response Skills
More than just being an armed security guard, bodyguards, and our executive protection personnel, in particular, are expected to have a high level of training in related skills. This includes first aid and first responder skills, orienteering, defensive driving strategies, and even speaking multiple languages. The result is that your personal bodyguard has the skills and techniques necessary to safely escort you away from any high-stakes situation.
Bodyguards Are the Ultimate Form of Safety Preparedness
At the end of the day, all the advantages of hiring a bodyguard combine to offer you the ultimate level of safety preparedness. From your moment-to-moment safety to your overall access to specialized, expert assistance for both minor and major emergencies, bodyguards are the best way to ensure your safety and security.
Are you in need of a highly trained and skilled team of security personnel? Tactical Response Security offers executive protection services to businesses and individuals in Philadelphia and beyond.

The best security guards are the ones who are keeping track of the environment around them, even as it’s changing. This means that a security guard has to have a remarkable sense of focus. They cannot let their thoughts wander as they have dozens of different tasks and protocols to keep in mind as they work. Security guards with an acute sense of situational awareness can even help to prevent issues, like theft and threat of violence before they even occur.
The classic movie trope of the heavy-set security guard may help to move a comedic narrative along, but it does nothing for the security of your business, and the safety of your customers and employees. Leading security guards prioritize physical fitness as their job can be physically demanding. When pursuing criminals, or assisting in emergency situations, the physical fitness of every security guard is tested. Moreover, good physical fitness also helps with mental clarity, allowing them to be more situationally aware. Finally, a physically fit security guard simply looks more capable and professional. This appearance puts your employees and staff at ease and makes potential threats think twice before committing a criminal act.
Excellent Customer Service Skills
While our security guards may get their paychecks from us, ultimately, they work for you. That means that they have to integrate themselves into your workplaces culture, standards, and community. Part of that integration means having excellent customer service skills. They can help your customers connect with the right services or with other individuals who can help them. A good security guard should help to promote a sense of safety and welcoming.
Effective Communication And Analysis Skills
Capable security guards are ones who communicate with their employers, other security personnel, and with your customers. They take the time to carefully analyze your workplace for any opportunities to improve your security measures. These skills translate into a safer work environment.
They Are Honest
At the end of the day, great security guards are honest. This means that they’re clear about their work and how they’re helping your business. But it also means that they take pride in their work, and genuinely want to serve you and your needs. Honest security guards protect your business from threats and do not put your business at risk through faulty practices, or less-than-ideal reporting.

Whether you’re running a small business or just an individual, there are times when it can be useful to hire a private investigator. If you’re facing a court case, or are in need of information about someone performing a potentially illegal activity, a private investigator has the skills and experience you need to get that information when you need it. Tactical Response Security proudly offers their private investigation services to the residents of Jersey City and the surrounding areas. Today, we’ll discuss some of the reasons you might consider before hiring a private investigator.
Private Investigators Are Skilled, Trained, and Well-Prepared
When you need to acquire specific or detailed information quickly, you might get lucky simply by using your own research skills. But hiring a trained professional ensures that the quality of information is much higher than whatever you find. Private investigators often have experience in investigating specific fields or industries. This means that a PI can gain access to information that is far beyond your scope of abilities.
Private Investigators Are Ideal For Background Checks
Whether you’re hiring a new employee, or interested in a new partner, a private investigator can often do a more detailed background check than most services do. Investigators will look at more than just criminal records, and deep dive into information about an individuals work history, confirm pertinent details like name, age, and residency. After they’ve finished their work, the information the PI provided you will offer you a more complete picture of a given individual, allowing you to make an informed judgment as to whether you can trust them or not.
Private Investigators Aren’t Just For Businesses
While corporate investigations are common, private investigators are also very helpful for those involved in personal court proceedings, like divorce, custody cases, and infidelity charges. Private investigators can gain access to sensitive information in a discrete manner that will not compromise your position in the court case. For instance, if you’re concerned that a partner is cheating on you, or is secreting away money in a hidden bank account, it can be difficult to determine these things on your own. A private investigator has the skills needed to uncover even the best-kept secrets.
Private Investigators Are Aware Of Their Legal Responsibilities
When investigating something on your own, you may unintentionally invalidate any evidence you find with your actions. A qualified PI, however, will be able to inform you of the complications or issues that may arise as part of their work. This prevents you from having to throw out evidence later. It also ensures that any information they collect is within the confines of the law, meaning you do not unintentionally break surveillance laws, breach someone’s privacy, or make any illegal recordings.
Jersey City’s Source For Private Investigative Services
Whatever your needs or concerns, the private investigators with Tactical Response Security are here to help. Our PIs are professionally trained, and many have backgrounds in law enforcement or the military. This means that they are the most qualified individuals in Jersey City to conduct corporate, private, and domestic investigations. Contact our security specialists today to make use of our private investigation services.
Improve Your Customer Service
This may not be obvious, but developing a positive relationship with your customers can also keep your business safe. Welcoming each customer with a smile and offering them a quality shopping experience ensures that they view your business favorably. This also shows that you are paying attention to who is shopping at your dispensary. This can help to deter criminals who try to case your business, looking for ways to break in, and what to steal. Good customer service then deters criminal elements while also earning your business a loyal customer base.
Conduct Rigorous Inventory Management
Reports suggest that 90 percent of losses incurred by cannabis businesses are from internal theft. Employees steal products for their personal use. This can be avoided by being very careful with your product and keeping detailed inventory records. Managing your inventory effectively using specialized programs and systems ensures that nothing goes amiss. You might limit access to storage areas, or even conduct additional background checks on employees who transport and handle your cannabis products that are not behind the counter.
Install Video Surveillance Systems
The proliferation of high-definition and compact cameras in the last few years means that installing a video surveillance system is now affordable and easy. In many cases, these camera systems can live stream and record video through the internet, meaning that you can check in on your dispensary even if you’re working from the next city over. Having video footage of any suspicious activity or any robberies assists police in their investigation. In many cases, however, the camera itself serves as a deterrent, as criminals will know that their actions are being monitored.
Hire Security Personnel
While the marijuana industry is becoming increasingly more legitimate, some dispensaries may struggle to find locations for their businesses in nicer, less crime-prone areas. This means that due to location and vocation, dispensaries are at a higher risk of crime than other businesses. While the measures listed above go a long way in keeping your business secure, nothing compares to hiring a professional security service. The presence of either unarmed or armed security officers can ensure that criminals do not attempt to rob your store. By working with a security service, their specialists can provide you with other ideas and measures that keep your business safe by looking at your entire operation.
