Working in Security

Sep 10, 2008
A naturally irrefutable and prevailing sense of self confidence and authoritarianism whilst on duty is a essential to work in the bodyguard industry. Not just a visual preventative, a bodyguard will deter, monitor, report and take into custody those acting inappropriately, vandals, thieves and people attempting to gain unlawful access to the property you are guarding.

Monitoring and recording the intruder's actions and movements in order to inform the police of all the details to enable the police to effectively capture the perpetrator. The response protocols vary greatly and a security guard will have a range of reactions that allow them to, with confidence, enter any situation that may arise.

The "detect, deter, observe and report" method is used among bodyguard firms and agencies worldwide. In some instances you may be required to perform a citizens arrest to gain control of a situation. Arrest and control procedures may be performed by bodyguards including operating emergency equipment, taking accurate notes, handcuffing and restraining, performing first aid and CPR, taking accurate notes, writing detailed reports, and performing other tasks as required by the client they are guarding.

One of the area's of security that you may be assigned to is access control. Ensuring that personnel wishing to gain access via building entrances and vehicle barriers have the correct passes or identification before entering the premises, you are the front line of control that is often a very effective security deterrent.

Minor emergencies that may occur such as lost persons, lockouts or dead vehicle batteries may require you to be a contact for the persons having the emergency or for you to allow access to emergency or recover services. Due to your familiarity with the surrounding area you can give clear directions to recovery teams and allow them access to the restricted area in which the minor emergency occurs. You will be required to aid the emergency services in serious emergencies by directing foot traffic to safe locations or directing the emergency services to injured people and locations needing their attention. When tending to these sorts of situations it is imperative to keep full and accurate records of your duties in an incident report so that all aspects of the disturbance can be investigated. In this situation any person with a background that could save time and lives is utilised.

Functions and locations you can expect to be stationed at may include:

seminars and conferences

trade shows and exhibitions

private parties and functions

car parking supervisor

exhibit protection, galleries, shows, museums

retail stores and shopping centres

music festivals and concerts

sports and athletic events
