Security Companies in Los Angeles

Security Companies in Los Angeles have to master many logistical, organizational and human capital related challenges in order to provide excellent security guard services to a diverse client base with high expectations. Los Angeles is geographically challenging, because of its vast territory and the traffic that is involved to get to the different locations a company provides security to. Field supervisors and patrol officers must often drive hundreds of miles per day to visit all the locations they are responsible for. That makes holding security officers responsible and accountable challenging and costly. In terms of human capital many businesses require security guards to speak certain languages, because their client base, their employees or both have spoken a certain language.

A security company in Los Angeles must be extremely well organized and diverse in its structure to be able to master the daily challenges. In general Los Angeles is a huge city with a high and dense population with relatively high crime rates while local law enforcement has extremely scarce resources. Security companies face challenges from armed robbers, gang violence, vandalism, vagrants, panhandlers, thieves and other troublemakers. Sometimes they face all these challenges and risk factor at the same location, therefore security officers must be extremely well trained, disciplined and supported by field supervisors and security consultants.

I have been a security consultant for a local Los Angeles security company for a long time and I have experienced that it is extremely important to be familiar with the location and its specific challenges and risk factors. A general walk through, but also a visit of the local police department and city hall will provide essential insights and information about potential challenges and dangers security officers might be facing. Establishing a relationship with the local police department is extremely important in any case, because at some point the security officers will need support from the local police. A great relationship with the police commander will ensure faster response times and support in terms of more frequent police patrols in the area. In some cases a police commander has provided nightly visits by police officers when our security guards have worked in dangerous or remote locations.

A Los Angeles business should be cautious to choose a security company that has established such relationships, because especially in Los Angeles a security' company's responsibility only starts with providing a well trained professional security officer. Having and establishing relationships with public security institutions will provide invaluable additional support, resources and security to a local business. An experienced security company and security consultant will be able to attract and foster such support. The security company will thus add value that will enable clients to focus on their core business and have the peace of mind that security professionals are vigilant about their security and the security of their business.
