It's an interesting time.
The world has changed, and continues to change at a rapid speed.
Security measures seem to have remained the same for a long time but they have very recently changed in a BIG way! In the past a guard would come and sit at a clients premises or site, suited and booted in standard black trousers and white shirt. No accreditation or training, it was all based on the individuals capabilities to do the job on the day.
Regulatory bodies like the SIA were non existent, it was all based on trust and dedication to the role. However, we are now living in a very different world, and our clients need to know that the people they hire through us are exactly what they are paying for.
It's incredible to see how our service of ‘manned guarding’ has now been revolutionised into manned surveillance, analysis, recognisance, solution focused guarding! It's pretty outstanding.
My early experience may have been the put-a-man-on-site traditional approach, but the level of professionalism and expertise that our guards hold now doesn't even come close to the levels of the past. SIA accreditation may not be something many traditional security firms sign up to...but I'm impressed with how our staff carry themselves and provide our clients with a level that far surpasses anything from the past.
Things have certainly changed!
