Thousands of businesses large and small already sitting empty, and many more shuttering their storefronts and locking their doors on a daily basis. While one in four Americans remain at home under strict stay-at-home orders to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, it is only the essential workers such as doctors, nurses and grocery store employees that are allowed out. But did you know that private security guards are considered part of that group? If you’re a store owner who has never considered private security, Ranger Guard can help. Now is not the time to debate the pros and cons of this time added protection. With over 15 years of experience, we’re equipped and trained to handle the unique demands of this unprecedented time in history.
With many cities across the Houston and Texas area already being ordered to shelter-in-place, the only outing many people take is to the grocery store. Part of any store’s plan to operate successfully during this type of crisis is to allow a certain amount of people into their establishment at a time. This is to adhere to the social distancing practice that health experts have advised. Ranger Guard’s unarmed security guards can be instrumental in monitoring the lines of customers entering the store. Our guards are extensively trained and because of that have the needs of our clients foremost in our minds. It is because of that we’re able to maintain professional standards surpassing any other company in the industry.
Beyond ensuring the lines of shoppers enter the store in an orderly and calm manner, Ranger Guard can assist management with the flow of customers inside the supermarket. Our employees are trained in a number of different procedures including crowd control. Nowhere is this a greater factor than present-day as many customers race to grab certain rationed items before they are out of stock. Ranger Guard’s employees are taught how to calm and control unbridled crowds. This alleviates the stress of store management (allowing them to focus their efforts on operating the supermarket) and makes it a much more enjoyable experience for customers. Thereby ensuring their repeat business.
Desktop computers, desks, ergonomic chairs, printers, monitors and server room equipment are just some of the most common items that are sitting in a standard office while millions of Americans are working from home. While it might not seem significant to you, it’s worth a fortune on the black market to the highest bidder. With commercial offices big and small sitting vacant around the clock, thieves have ample opportunity to plan and execute their robberies. The need for Ranger Guard’s mobile patrol service has never been greater. It provides business owners with a convenient way throughout the day of monitoring their facilities. Whether you own a business park, office tower or small store Ranger Guard supplies you with a clearly marked patrol vehicle that will visit your property a specified number of times. It will make sure that your commercial business is secured and that no unauthorized person or persons are trespassing.
Ranger Guard utilizes a high-tech reporting system to track our officers’ patrols. This is filed in a client-access web site and customers can log into their account at any time to verify the officer’s daily reports. Ranger Guard management will review the information every morning and if any incidents or unusual activity is identified clients will be notified immediately.
Private security guards aren’t the only essential service that is required during the pandemic. So are bank tellers and anyone that has to do with financial services. This is an industry that often seeks the services of armed security guards. In Texas, security guards that carry guns require the licensing in order to do so. Many of our armed officers are former military veterans or police all of whom have the required experience to handle this type of weapon. Additionally, before they step foot in any professional setting as a Ranger Guard employee, whether it is a bank or any other financial institution, for example, they undergo our rigorous training. Not only does each guard undergo state-mandated certification courses in how to use a gun, but they also take training classes in patrol techniques, criminal law, defensive techniques, and customer service. All of these courses are even more important now as our armed officers navigate the unchartered territory of a pandemic environment.
