The security industry is big business. More than 8,000 firms employ some 800,000 security officers in the United States, according to Security Magazine. If your organization needs to improve its security, where do you start to find the right partner? You need experience, superior service, and affordability. Technology is a key consideration, too. Advances over the past decade have led to a new type of hybrid security services called Integrated Guarding. The leading security companies are using Integrated Guarding services to offer their clients better protection with a lower bottom line.
What is Integrated Guarding?
Simply put, integrated guarding is a blend of traditional and technology-driven security services. It includes security officers who may guard an area on foot or in a patrol car. It can encompass stationary cameras and remote command centers where officers can monitor large areas. And it can include aerial drone surveillance that does timed patrols or is dispatched to provide real-time video reporting.
Security companies that use state-of-the-art technology, including AGB Investigative Services, Inc., will customize a package of these services that are tailored to a client’s specific needs.
Why consider Integrated Guarding?
Integrated Guarding provides a host of benefits to clients in the government and private sectors.

Increased Efficiency & Productivity
Remote monitoring centralizes security operations at a command center that becomes a communication hub. Multiple cameras provide broader views of the coverage area and faster response times than on-site officers alone can offer. A remote security officer can monitor the video feed to identify potential threats and dispatch officers or law enforcement, as necessary.
Surveillance cameras are proven tools in decreasing and solving crime, according to the think tank Urban Institute. They also have been shown to reduce unruly behavior in public settings, such as streets and subway stations. Cameras are also effective in reducing internal and external theft in an organization. When people are aware that they are being recorded, they are less likely to steal.
Opting for a blend of on-site officers and remote monitoring means you can reduce the total manpower needed to protect an area. With remote guarding, one security officer can monitor activity on multiple screens, reducing your cost on the ground.
