Austin Security Services
Special Event Security
When people attend sporting events, concerts, festivals, or other events where hundreds or thousands of attendees are together, they expect to be safe while there with family and friends. However, as we have seen over the past decade or more, many of these events can often turn tragic. Shootings, bombings, and other violent acts have become more and more common at events such as these, prompting event organizers to place a high value on event security. While law enforcement is almost always present at most events, they cannot be everywhere at once. Thus, private security agencies such as Ranger Guard and Investigations have taken on a more prominent role in recent years. By providing trained personnel who are able to conduct crowd control, bag searches, K-9 patrols, and other related services, these events are made much safer for everyone.
Unarmed Security Officers
In many instances, it is not necessary to have private security personnel who are armed. Instead, a facility or business may simply need personnel who are trained in surveillance, patrol techniques, and other areas aimed at keeping others safe. Because of this, Ranger Guard and Investigations provides unarmed security officers to a wide range of clients in Austin and surrounding areas. Apartment complexes, office buildings, manufacturing facilities, and many others regularly use unarmed officers to perform a variety of duties. Whether it’s access control to a facility, patrols of parking lots and buildings, or video surveillance from a central control room, Ranger officers are skilled in these and many other aspects of private security.
Whether it is event security Austin residents need or other types of private security services, Ranger Guard and Investigations will always provide officers who have received extensive training in many areas of private security. These can include training classes in Anti-Terrorism Tactics, Defensive Tactics, Patrol Techniques, First Aid/CPR, Criminal Law, Surveillance, and other areas. In addition to these areas, officers who will be assigned to special assignments, such as VIP protection or armed security, receive extensive training in firearms and other aspects related to their assignments.
While training is a large part of why Ranger Guard and Investigations officers are able to handle a variety of assignments with professionalism, experience also plays a key role. In fact, many officers employed by Ranger Guard and Investigations come to us with extensive backgrounds in law enforcement and military service. By having these backgrounds, not only do they already possess training in many areas related to private security, but they have also demonstrated an ability to handle high-stress situations in a calm and professional manner. Whether assigned to patrol an apartment complex, provide security at an office building, or assist with security at a local school, Ranger officers can use their experience in a wide array of assignments.
In many types of private security situations, mobile patrols play a key role in keeping people and property safe. Schools, housing communities, office and manufacturing complexes, and many other places rely on patrols to ensure surrounding areas are kept crime-free. However, many criminals and other individuals quickly learn when and where officers will be patrolling, making much of this surveillance ineffective. However, Ranger Guard and Investigations makes sure this does not happen. Rather than patrol the same areas at the same time day and night, Ranger uses a system of random patrol techniques. From varying patrol routes and times to using unmarked vehicles if necessary, Ranger patrol techniques have been proven to reduce criminal activity in an area by as much as 20 percent after only a few weeks.
