These days, it’s quite common to see security guards in many public places, such as shopping malls, stores, and parking garage where security guards patrol and safeguard property. Security guards are either employed in-house by property owners or they’re employed by security firms. Security firms contract out security services to private property owners
In-house guards have been regulated or licensed since 2009. Licensed guards are required to carry an ID card and a security license, and they must produce both on request. If a licensed guard wears a uniform, the uniform must display the word “Security” and/or the words “Guard” or “Patrol”.
Whether licensed or not, a guard’s role is to watch property and to enforce rules and service standards set by property owners. A business may want a guard visible at all times to assure employees, clients, and the public that they are in a safe environment. A business may even need security to monitor its own employees for vandalism, theft, safety infractions, or other inappropriate behaviour
Some clients will provide a very specific and detailed list of duties for guards, whereas other clients may trust the guards to determine how to best keep their site safe and secure. In any case, being a security guard is a very important job because they must be aware of their surroundings, make appropriate judgement calls and keep the client’s premises safe and secure.
