Protection vs. Security

Dollars and Sense

Why do you hire security?  Is it just to limit liability?  Or do you actually want to protect people and property?  There is a big difference.  


Even if your main focus is limiting liability, the fact that you have officers that are untrained and incapable of protecting your employees isn't helping you.  We've all seen the low-priced security companies providing $10-12/hr uniformed officers that look and act unprofessional.  They show up late in wrinkled clothing and are usually more of a burden to your company than a benefit - often times security is the first experience your customers have at your workplace.  Many company employees are either threatened by the lack of professionalism, or they relate it to a movie about a mall cop.  And we know in a pinch, these officers wouldn't be able to protect themselves, much less any of your employees or executives.  How are you limiting your liability if you are knowingly using inadequate personnel?  Why even hire security at all if that's your mindset?


The alternative is to up the budget a small bit and hire professionals like us.  Agents that are extensively trained in protection, first aid, crisis management, and customer service among other things.  Our agents can work hand in hand with you to handle any security needs or threats that may arise.  Some companies view agents of our caliber as a response to a higher level threat or crisis.  However, our agents are trained to integrate into your day-to-day operations seamlessly and replace your sub-par security officers without causing discomfort or fear within the workplace.   We are certified by the states of Texas and Florida to work in plain clothes with weapons concealed and, in the event that one of these high level threats does arise, we're already there.


It is the responsibility of the business owner to provide a safe working environment for its employees.  Don't get caught with your pants down in a legal backlash because you wanted to save a few bucks.  Get protected.  Get TANGENT GROUP.
