Comprehensive Security Guard Services: Top-Tier Security Tailored for Your Unique Needs

Although crime rates across the United States and in Chicago have been on the decline in recent years, violent crimes are still on the rise in Chicago. According to FBI statistics, national violent crime decreased an estimated 1.7% in 2022 compared to 2021 estimates. However, reports from the Chicago Police Department arrest show that violent crimes such as assaults and motor vehicle thefts are at the highest levels in a decade despite a noticeable drop in overall crime. Many other neighboring cities, like Indianapolis, have seen sharp rises in homicide, assault, and robbery. This demonstrates the growing need for professional security services to keep homes, businesses, events, and public spaces safe. When it comes to protecting your property, assets, employees, and customers, having a professional security presence is essential. Charter United Protective Services Agency LLC has over 15 years of experience providing best-in-class security solutions here in Indianapolis and across Indiana. We are a trusted name known for the high level of protection, responsiveness, and care we provide to every client.

What Should You Look for in a Security Company?

Protecting your commercial property, retail location, construction site, special event or residential community requires partnering with a security company that checks all the right boxes. Here are some key areas to evaluate:

  • Industry Experience: Look for adequate experience serving clients in your specific industry, such as healthcare, education, corporate, retail, etc. Industry knowledge is key.

  • Local Knowledge: A security company familiar with your area, city ordinances and local challenges will provide better protection services. Security has strong regional components, so identifying risks and responding quickly depends greatly on local visibility. Companies anchored in the community tend to provide superior service.

  • Proper Licensing and Insurance: Ensure your provider has up-to-date licenses and sufficient general liability insurance and bonding to properly cover officers and potential incidents on your property.

  • Guard Vetting and Training Procedures: There should be rigorous processes for vetting guards, including extensive background checks, drug testing and more. Ongoing training is also vitally important.

  • Risk Evaluation: The best security partners start by thoroughly evaluating your risks, facilities and procedures. Custom solutions come from comprehensive assessments.

  • Customizable Services: One size doesn't fit all sites in terms of security risks and needs. Look for flexibility in building customized armed or unarmed security packages to safeguard vulnerabilities.

Follow this checklist when evaluating security guard companies, and you're sure to see why Charter United Protective Services stands out as the trusted name in Indianapolis and throughout Indiana.
