a modern-day society where crime is ever on the increase and Police resources
are stretched to the limits the Police Service in general cannot afford the
time (in their limited budgets) to properly investigate crimes committed in
and around the workplace or to regularly patrol the property of individuals
or Companies. With the exception of very serious cases, internal crime within
a Company is very often not regarded as a Police matter and is left with the
Company’s management to sort out and rectify.
As management is expected to
be responsible for securing and protecting its own premises this responsibility
could be delegated to the Security Company/Officer in many areas which could
save the Company thousands £ in both the short and long term.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of scenarios where the
deployment of Security Officers could alleviate and prevent crime occurring
within the workplace.
Serious internal pilferage
cannot only eat away a Company’s profits by making it less competitive in the
market place; it could also cause late deliveries and loss of orders.
A serious fire, whether
started deliberately or by accident could completely finish a Company.
Acts of vandalism can also
have a devastating effect on business.
In an ever-competitive world industrial espionage is a means open to for unscrupulous competitors to gain insight into a Company’s affairs.
Security Officers can therefore assist Client Management in both the prevention of crime and the detection of offenders committing those crimes.
roles and responsibilities of today’s Security Officer has increased in recent
years, Companies have become much more cost conscious and therefore more aware
of their requirements to prevent losses/wastage.
companies realise this and employ Security Officers in order
to prevent and detect losses by theft, prevent water damage, fire damage, and
vandalism, they can prevent wastage, and control access i.e. visitors, contractors,
workforce etc into the Clients premises.
Security Officer therefore has become and integral part of the management of
a site. They are in a position of both authority and responsibility.
days of the night watchman are now gone, modern day Security Officers are people
who know and understand their responsibilities and diligently apply their sense
of sight, hearing and suspicion in order to ensure that property and people
are adequately protected.
The Security Officer of today can play
an important determining role in the successful operations of any business,
corporate or manufacturing, retail or financial. No matter what the industry
or assignment the Security Officer, through their positive training and their
expertise are capable of adapting themselves to many varying security related
duties, from coordinating a busy reception area to manning and monitoring a
distribution company’s gatehouse or CCTV system.
