Invest in Top Security Agents to Protect You While Out Shopping

Frank Costa, President of NEXGEN Protection Security —

Companies like Home Depot have a Loss prevention Department and employee the use of Loss Prevention Agents/Store Security, to apprehend shoplifters.

Many times, Loss prevention Agents deal with aggressive shoplifters who refuse to cooperate. These characters may even assault the security agent. On occasion, shoplifters are armed, like this shoplifter who was carrying at a Home Depot in Chicago. Agents must be well trained to make quick decisions, and at times disarm the shoplifter before any harm can come to the customers.

As a customer, you too can do your part in making our community more secure. If you see something, make a mental note of what is happening, write it down immediately. You are a witness to a crime. An accurate assessment is critical to help law enforcement conduct a thorough investigation. We all need to do what we can to make our world a safer place to live and work.

Assault on Security

“A place like a library is generally deemed ‘safe place’. Providing an unarmed security guard to a public venue, is like placing a band aid on wound that requires stitches. The guard should be properly trained to deescalate first but be ready to use necessary force & tools (firearm) to disable the threat.  Unfortunately in this case, the guard didn’t have the proper tools and she tragically lost her life doing her job.” — Frank Costa, President Nexgen Protection Services.

Increased Demand for Security Guard Protection Amid COVID Pandemic

Increased Demand for Security Guard Protection Amid COVID Pandemic

Security companies are scrambling to hire guards and IT workers as businesses worry about break-ins to closed properties and cybersecurity issues associated with working remotely.

Frank Costa, President of NEXGEN Protection Security —

“Due to the civil unrest and in conjunction with corona virus, society has been very tense. The level of criminal activity has created a demand for security guards. Hiring a professional security agency to handle your business security needs is critical.

Security Guard Protection firms such as Allied Universal hire security guards who typically have relative limited customer service experience. The security guard field experiences a large turnover in staff with clients generally unhappy with new guard services provided.

Customer focus is everything. At Nexgen Protection, we treat each one of clients with the white glove treatment. Our corporate vision is not to be the largest but to provide the highest quality security guard services in the area. ”

Employment Screening Trends in 2021

UTILIZE BACKGROUND CHECKS TO MITIGATE RISK

Frank Costa, President of NEXGEN Protection Security —

“Organizations have to manage risk. Without risk, there’s no reward. Without employees, you don’t have much of a business. In order to mitigate this risk, employee backgrounds checks are vital.

In the last 10 years or so, there has been changes to the law, on how background checks should be used, and what information is reportable or not.  I highly recommend employers to hire an attorney that specializes in labor law, to develop standards of use for employee background checks.

Due to the current COVID situation, court records are currently not readily available. The new trend is to routinely conduct follow-up background checks on employees to make sure there was no changes in the record. The world has become increasingly volatile and uncertain.”
