We often see security guards on TV as individuals who are tasked to take shifts and roam the dark with a flashlight. People might view their job as an easy one, but the reality is security work is more than that.
Security patrolling can be done on foot, or by using marked or unmarked patrol vehicles, motorbikes, bicycles, helicopters, amphibious boats or via horseback. You think we kid but there are many countries where security patrols are on horseback, including central park in the states!
Security guards are our lifeline when it comes to protecting people and property.
A security guard’s job requires a degree of resilience to last long hours on the job patrolling a site. Moreover, security guards have a lot of responsibilities on their shoulders. They do surveillance rounds in intervals which include inspecting entryways and door locks making sure nothing is tampered with. If they work the front desk station, they check incoming guests for identity and appointment verification. They also direct these guests towards the right floors and offices they are visiting. On top of that, they likely also monitor the CCTV cameras.
Since the nature of the job is high risk, they are confronted with many dangers on a daily basis since theft, vandalism and acts of criminality are included in the things they are assigned to look out for.
