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 officer may cause undo concern or excitement. Client activities and situations that may dictate the use of an unarmed 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 an armed or unarmed officer, you must take into consideration the perceived threat that often accompanies the presence of an armed officer. Employees, clients, visitors, and customers may question you as to your reason for hiring an armed officer. While you may have information, facts, and statistics to support your pro-active decisions, others may not understand. For this reason, an unarmed officer is sometimes a better choice.
Unarmed officers are considered to be less of a liability. Although American Alliance Security Agency takes all necessary steps and precautions to reduce your liability exposure, armed 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 officer may be best suited for your security needs.
