IT IS YOUR CHOICE
Safe N Secure can provide you with armed and/or seemingly unarmed security. It is true that many people are intimidated by armed guards, which can create negative reactions towards security from some residents. Safe N Secure’s philosophy provides you with a hybrid solution. Our philosophy is based on the reality that unless an Officer is armed to defend himself and thus you, he likely only will be a witness calling 911. That is why, if the sight of armed officers is troublesome to your residents Safe N Secure officers will keep their firearm out-of-sight in the patrol car during day routine shift for duty that allows them to be within reach of their patrol car. They do carry guns on their person during night patrols and when responding to an emergency or a disturbance. So, you may never see a gun or be intimidated by them, but at the same time you know that real help is here and around the corner.
The Plantation has Security. Do you think it hurts their property value? Absolutely not! Au Contraire, visitors are generally impressed that the property has security. It increases the sense of higher living and care about safety.
Just as high-end jewelers have a guard at the door or inside the store. From Underwood in Jacksonville to Cartier of the 5th avenue in NYC. Does it make them look like they have a problem? No it doesn't; it shows that they are high-end jeweler.
As per our insurance company that insures hundreds of agencies across multiple States, they have never heard of a Management Company's insurance being dropped due to armed or unarmed Security.
Ask your property manager “Under what condition will our insurance be cancelled?” The security we provide is not an exposure under your policy, that is why we carry Security Guard Specialty policy, as required by the State of Florida. One of our clients on the island had been told so by their property manager. We work for them, and they didn't lose their insurance.
Very Bad Solution
Confronting abuses such as pool abuse (drinking, staying after hours, making a lot of noise) is very dangerous because it can have the following consequences:
The list is almost endless. We feel that your life and liability deserves to rest easy with a State Licensed and insured group. We carry thousands of dollars of emergency, communication and response equipment. That is so we can protect you effectively.
In Florida, once someone has been warned not to trespass they can be detained for arrest. A warning can be a simple sign that states "No Trespass", or it can simply be an agent asking them to show identification or documentation that substantiates their right to be where they are.
As a Security Agency we have the authority to enforce Florida Statute 810 as it relates to trespass. We can intercept, question and detain trespassers. Once the Police or the Sheriff Department arrives, they will take trespassers into custody and book them accordingly, including fingerprinting, picture, etc.
Not always. Here is why:
The philosophy of virtually every other security agency is:
Limit Liability by restricting guards actions to only “Observe and Report”.
With this policy, anytime a guard is “involved” in some sort of altercation he/she faces the likelihood to lose his/her job. This policy is not a good motivation for them to protect you. In fact, it maybe counter-productive.
