The Benefits Of Having A Security Guard

Security guards, dubbed “watchmen” in the 19th century, have served our communities since the Middle Ages. Often times civilians with military training, these watchmen were tasked with protecting persons and property from harm while utilizing preventative measures to insure the safety of his/her employer. For many private security firms, not much has changed since the Middle Ages. American Security Force, however, is not one of them. With an emphasis on constant and consistent training in the best de-escalation techniques and the newest threat trends, ASF’s Security Guard in Los Angeles is simultaneously the most basic and flexible protection plan we offer.

Security guards are an essential part of any protection plan, and an integral aspect of what we offer our clients. Putting up surveillance cameras (which offer great sources of evidence for after a crime has been committed) and having an internal plan for emergency action are great assets, but an actual safety presence onsite goes a long way towards having an entirely safeguarded location. All businesses have blind spots that require the use of an expert eye. That’s where American Security Force comes in. Whether you are seeking employee or patron physical protection or if you need someone to guard your assets from theft, we have the right security guard service plan for you.

What Benefits Come Out Of Having Security Guard Services?

We understand that each of our client’s needs are unique. That is why our security guards are trained to provide a variety of services. Some of the things we offer include:


You may want to establish a security guard service that does more than patrol. You may need someone to review surveillance or even walk employees or customers to their vehicles after hours. A security guard can help defend a number of aspects of your business that doesn’t involve simply walking around the perimeter (although, that can certainly be an option as well!). It boils down to asking yourself what are your security needs? We have years of experience in creating the ideal protection package by asking the questions no one else thinks to ask. We find the weak links in your armor and, instead of attempting to hide them, actually find ways to fix them. American Security Force has the answer.


If you have a respectable business, you want to keep it that way. Hiring a security company as part of your overall safety plan will go a long way in preventing criminals from targeting you. Unfortunately, small businesses are a target for vandalism and theft. A secure presence will certainly discourage criminal activity and help your business keep a safe reputation. American Security Force recognizes the line between creating a crime-free zone (like a prison cell) and a place wherein crime is significantly deterred all the while business is still encouraged. Your business is not a jail cell, it shouldn’t feel or behave like one. There should be a balance between safety and claustrophobia. Our experience in protecting Los Angeles businesses means we know where that line is for your business.

Peace of Mind

It has been proven that the presence of a security guard actually offers people a sense of safety. People simply feel better when they know that a trained professional is keeping an eye out.
