10 Duties, Responsibilities and Role of a Security Guards in Dubai

Aug 5, 2017
Security guards do a lot more than patrol the area under their watch; here are some of the duties security guards are meant to perform:

1.Deter Crimes
Security guards are there to deter crimes by staying in everyone's eyes and keeping themselves visible. Most criminals are afraid to act their minds when they see a security guard around. They would think twice before causing any damage, theft or other dastardly act.

2.Stay Vigilant
A security must have keen senses of vision, smell and hearing. He must be able to detect any odd smell when something is burning, when a chemical is leaking somewhere or when someone odd is cooking something in the vicinity. He should be able to interpret odd movements in the area and act swiftly accordingly.

3.Respond Quickly
A security should be anything but lazy. There should not be anything like a lazy security guard. They are meant to sense crisis and act fast to control the situation before anything goes out of hands.

4. Stay Observant
Security guards do not rest even after a crime has been averted. They must not relax but in fact should keep observing until they are sure of no more danger lurking around so they may act accordingly in case the situation has not been handled completely.

5. Get Help
Security guards may or may not be armed depending on the type of job they are at but dangerous situations can occur anywhere such as armed robbery or deadly assaults and in that case when unarmed the security guard should not think twice before calling the police.

6. Maintain Discipline
A security guard's duties go beyond deterring crimes only. When employed at a mall or a public place security guards are meant to keep discipline and maintain rules as laid down by their employer. They are posted near metal detectors and entry points to check everyone before letting into the venue.

7. Maintain Large Groups of People
Private gatherings either with large gatherings or ones that involve prominent public figures like politicians or religious personalities hire security guards to ensure everything runs smoothly without any mishap.

8. Receive Guests
Security guards hire to guard and maintain discipline at private gatherings, weddings or any special events may also be required to receive guests and fetch them safe and sound to the main event from the entrance.

9. Offer Safety Warnings
Security guards are there not only as guards but your security expert as well. Let them have a look around the area and see if there are any loopholes in security and if anything needs to be changed to tighten the security. Listen to their tips and ensure everything is executed well.

10. Other Special Duties
Besides their primary duty of guarding the area under their watch, some security guards especially those hired by individuals as personal body guards are also some times required to answer their employer's calls for them, receive their guests, answer their emails and run important errands for them.
