Unarmed Security Services
When is an Unarmed Security Officer the Best Option?
Unarmed security officers are a popular choice when the threat level is low, and the use of an armed security officer may cause undo concern or excitement. Client activities and situations that may dictate the use of an unarmed security officer include more relaxed environments.
While the threat level at your location and surrounding area may have the most impact on your decision to hire either armed or unarmed security services, you must take into consideration the perceived threat that often accompanies the presence of an armed security officer. Employees, clients, visitors, and customers may question you as to your reason for hiring an armed security officer. While you may have information, facts, and statistics to support your pro-active decisions, others may not understand. For this reason, an unarmed security officer is sometimes a better choice.
Unarmed security officers are considered to be less of a liability. Although we at American Alliance Security Agency take all necessary steps and precautions to reduce your liability exposure, armed security officers inherently present a higher level of liability exposure. If the threat level on your property is low and you have no reason to fear for the safety of your staff or visitors, an unarmed security officer may be best suited for your security needs.
