If you have been using the same security service for a number of years, you need to re-evaluate their performance. This tells you if your current guards are as effective as ever or if you need to hire new people. The following will help guide your decision:
Are they getting complacent?
Does it seem like your security guards have become lax in their services? Perhaps the weekly incident reports have started arriving several days late, or guards no longer resume their shifts on time? When you voice your concerns, doesit seem to fall on deaf ears? These are signs of a security service that is getting complacent. If you don’t replace them quickly, you are putting your house (or business location) in danger.
Compare past and current performances
Compare how effective your security was in the past to how it is presently. Has there been an increase in security breaches? Are your guards misjudging more situations? Are they jumping to conclusions and backtracking more frequently now? If the answers to all these questions are in the affirmative, you know what to do.
Is familiarity becoming a weakness?
Complacency and poor performance are both symptoms of familiarity. The truth is, after working with you for years, there is a tendency that your guards stop being as vigilant as before. When this starts to happen, you should have your security company send you new personnel. Alternatively, you can hire a completely new security service and start afresh.
