Security for Small Businesses

small business security guard serviceYou’re a small business owner, not a large corporation, yet you have inventory and personnel to protect and no budget to protect them.

Does that sound familiar?

You may think you can’t afford security guards for your business but here are a few ways you can make it possible to keep you and your company safe.

Pooling.

Visit your local neighboring merchants. Do they have a security guard? Perhaps they’re in the same situation as your company, unable to hire a security guard detail full time. Take a poll and perhaps you and your neighbors could hire a security guard without going over your budget.

At Eagle Protective Group, our security guards work with your needs and if we’re patrolling a business or an entire street of businesses, we act on your requirements. No job is too small or too large.

Fixed, Reduce Hours

Perhaps there are only a few times per week where a security detail is necessary for your business. Maybe you need help during inventory periods, or when making large deposits at the bank, we can accommodate your schedule by appearing only when you need us.

Alternate Days

Perhaps a full time guard is too much. Our security guards at Eagle Protective Group are flexible and we can set up a schedule where our guards alternate days (without pattern) so that you have almost full week coverage at a rate you can afford.


 

Eagle Protective Group loves their customers, and we take great care in understanding our customer’s private security patrol needs. Whether you need us for a short event, or long term for your church or school, EPG can cater our services to fit your exact profile.

We also offer Private Security Services such as:

The Importance of Hotel VIP Protection in Dallas

Hotels require the most amount of security after airports and with the recent suicide bombings in a few hotels across the globe, hotel VIP protection in Dallas and other places has become even more prominent and important. Hotels have started taking VIP protection even more seriously and are now ensuring that all areas of the hotel are secure so that any harm cannot reach the VIPs visiting the hotel.

Hotel selection is an important factor in ensuring VIP protection in Dallas. It should be ensured that the hotel where the important personalities are staying ensures their security and utilizes the best in-depth security plan. Usually, larger hotels have elaborate security set ups, which ensure greater security to VIPs. They have electronic door locks, security cameras across the venue, good safety equipment such as smoke detectors, sprinklers and metal detectors to ensure no dangerous goods are carried around the hotel. All these help in detecting and tracking unauthorized persons and ensuring they do not enter the premises of the hotel. Doing so ensure VIP protection in Dallas especially in the hotels.

All VIPs must be aware of the key security arrangements at the hotel they intend to stay. If they do not have time, their managers should look up the security plan of the hotel and ensure that the security at the hotel is effective. The sad truth is that despite having a security system, most hotels have security panels, which are not effective and prepared enough for their job, which is precisely why a greater responsibility lies with the VIPs to ensure the effectiveness of the security system at the hotel where they intend to stay.

The hotel’s geographical location plays a great impact on the security. Thus, it is best to find the best possible neighborhood. While a hotel in a far off vacant place can be dangerous too, but hotels near pubs, bars, clubs and overly crowded areas is not too safe either. These areas can have certain noticeable safety implications, which is precisely why they must be avoided in order to lessen interaction with potential criminal elements or any kind of harm. When it comes to the geographical location of the hotel, its proximity to potential kidnap risk locations must also be considered. Poorly maintained hotels must be avoided especially those that are located at the outer edges of the city.

Other factors to consider about the security arrangements at a hotel include proper vehicle entrance and exit controls along with appropriate security lighting and proper fencing and arrangement for rapid evacuation if needed in times of emergency.
All this important information must be given to the VIPs upon arrival and check-in, so the executives are aware of the location of emergency exits are located and the various escape routes in the hotel in order to ease the exists when needed in case of emergency. Hotels must take care of these security measures too in order to ensure no casualties take place and the VIPs feel safe in the hotel premises.

Hurricane Safety and Security Services After the Storm

Eagle Protective Group has heard the call, and we’re available for security services in Houston.

Many people in Houston and along the South Eastern edge of the state have suffered this year under the wrathful arms of Harvey.

The danger never really goes away after the storm has left. There’s always damage to homes and buildings that must be repaired, down powerlines must be fixed to allow safe travels around town and then there’s the inevitable flooding during and after the storm

We’ve gathered a few resources to help you avoid some pitfalls as an owner dealing with home after a natural disaster. This applies to tornado and hail damage anywhere in Texas, but we’re addressing the residents who have been affected by Harvey.

Damaged homes can lead to looting.

looting houston harvey securityIf your neighborhood has sustained substantial damage, address your security concerns with your insurance agency or pool your resources with surrounding neighbors to hire a security guard to watch your street while you are at work or away getting supplies to repair your home.

If none are available, call us, or a nearby city because we are ready and on standby to send our staff wherever they are needed.

You’ve already lost so much, don’t let thieves take what’s left and potentially steal something sentimental or valuable from your home.

Insurance or Contractor Scams

Unscrupulous people come out of the woodwork during natural disasters.

Potential scams that have been reported and to stay aware of:

  • Robocalls or Emails pretending to be insurance agents, informing you that your flood insurance premiums are overdue.
  • Door to door ‘Repair’ people, ready to fix your damage without any information about their licensing or history. Do your due diligence and find out exactly who you are dealing with!
  • High fee scam-like sounding loans with exorbitant interest rates. This will capsize you and your credit if you cannot pay back these loans. Apply for federal assistance first, before relying on a company to help you rebuild.

Armed versus Unarmed Security Guards

Should my business use an armed security guard?

The thought of using an armed security guard for your business is a complicated decision for any business.

There are business owners who are in support of using armed security guards. And there those who are strongly oppose the idea of using armed security guards. Both sides of the argument have valid points. We’ll try to present all of them so you can help make a decision for your business.

The Pros of using an armed security patrol service.

The crucial point to using an armed security guard is to be a tangible warning to would-be criminals. Criminals would think twice before acting on a business that uses armed security guard support.
Another positive aspect to using armed security guard support is how having reduces the load placed on many local police departments*.

*Did you know that some of Eagle Protective Group’s employees are former military or police officers?

The cons against having an armed security patrol service.

One of the reasons stated as a disadvantage to using an armed security guard at their place of business is how the guard uses their power. Armed security guards may exhibit an attitude of freedom with situations that may not be conducive to good client / customer relations. Reporting your guard to us or having clear set responsibilities and limitations with the guard who protects your business, easily handles this.

Because the guard is armed, there is always the distinct possibility that during a situation, a guard may draw his weapon and use it, causing a death on the property. This is an insurance risk as well as something you must consider with the population at your store at any given time.
An armed guard is essential for high value inventory, however one would not necessarily be needed for a low value discount store unless the neighborhood in which it is in has a history of violent confrontation with business owners.

What should I do then?

At Eagle Protective Group we offer both types of security patrol to our customers in Dallas. We can guide you with a consultation to arrive at the best solution. Contact Us for a Free Consultation888-85-Eagle

Event Security and Your Needs

Are you an planning an event this summer? Do you have everything you need? Are you sure?

What about security?

No, why would I ever need that? It’s just a little get together.”

Event Security Dallas Not many people in the private sector think of security needs when planning an event.  If you’re telling yourself your event is too small to warrant the need for a security guard service, you’d be surprised how one security guard (or several) can put you and your guests at ease, not to mention your neighbors.

Imagine having a security guard patrolling your street to make sure your neighbors feel safe knowing this new influx of cars is merely a part of the party. On the flip side, having a security guard watch out for thieves preying on absent minded guests who don’t secure their property because their minds are focused on the important event. No where is this more appropriate than a wedding or reception. Emotions are running high, and not everyone takes the correct precautions to keep their property safe.

Eagle Protective Group will scale our security guard service in Dallas to your specific event security needs. If you need one guard or several, we can meet with you to discuss your event and create the perfect security package.

Here is a list of events our Dallas security guards  could protect you and your guests:

  • Award Ceremonies
  • Banquets
  • Birthday Parties
  • Concerts
  • Dance Parties
  • Elaborate Dinners
  • Fairs and Carnivals
  • Family Reunions
  • Fashion Shows
