In today’s world and climate, security should no longer be viewed as an afterthought, nor is the role of the security officer. The greatest trigger in the evolution of the security officer’s role lies in the alignment between security and business objectives. Security is no longer just about patrolling halls and slapping wrists. Rather, it is about enabling business. This is clearly understood and adhered to by our team at SecureWorld. Our professional security officers buy in to the core values and corporate culture of the company or property for which they serve. We train them to understand how their role will affect that business’ bottom line and what they can do to ensure that the property that they serve is successful. Our staff understand that their roles or job descriptions are more blended than that of the traditional sense and that they are more and more an integral part of business retention.

A guest, customer or tenant can quickly formulate an opinion on your organization whether it is positive or negative based on a single interaction with a security officer. Since they are the most highly visible and held in a position of authority, their chance of contact with your guests is extremely high. They really are the ‘front line’ of your organization. A guest will quickly formulate their opinion on your organization based on that single interaction. Having the right calibre of individual with the right training on your property that will interact with your guests is critical. While some situations are unavoidable, the way a security officer responds to that situation has the potential to turn a negative in a positive.
