Armed Security Guards at pawn shops

By Charles Willis Subscribe to RSS | April 3rd 2012 | Views:

Many pawn shops have been the target of robbery and theft and have been dealing with difficult and sometimes violent customers. The security situation is often aggravated by the fact that most pawn shops are located in difficult, low income areas with high crime rates. The security of employees and customers in many cases cannot be ensured by the regular staff. Pawn shop owners or managers will need to hire a security company that understands the challenges and security requirements at pawn shops. They will need an experienced security consultant to create a detailed security plan according to their unique challenges and risk factors.

A good security company will provide a detailed and free security consultation, which will include the identification and description of actual and potential risk factors. It will devise a security plan, which outlines the responsibilities of store employees and the duties of security officers to mitigate the previously identified risk factors. A security consultant should be assigned to the store as a direct contact, which will not only shorten the chain of communication in case the store owners want to make changes to their security service, but it will speed up the process of responding to emergencies. The security consultant will also establish a relationship with local law enforcement, which will improve response times in case the police are called. It will also increase the vigilance of local law enforcement and direct more attention of police officers to the store.

Security guards in most pawn shops should be armed, because they face the real threat of armed robberies and violent customers. Nevertheless, armed security guards should be trained to display extreme care in their decision making. Most of the time an armed security officer will prevent robberies, because most professional robbers will not target a store with an armed security officer present. The armed security guard must be trained to solve conflicts without using force and to enforce rules by displaying authority and professionalism, but he must also be ready to use weapon in case there is imminent danger to him or the people in his care.

A good security company that employs experienced security consultants, diligent field supervisors and vigilant security guards will improve the business of a pawn store immensely. It will provide peace of mind to employees and customers and minimize critical situations that might result in danger to the store and its employees. A good security company will make the security process from hiring the company to planning and execution easy. It will provide the necessary training and professional security personnel, which will possess the necessary skills to ensure the security of the store.
