Hands-Off or Hands-On Security Protection: Liability is a consideration

A security guard at a local bar was arrested on suspicion of hitting and kicking a patron who later died of causes unrelated to the alleged assault.

“When a business retains a security agency, the terms and agreement should be very clear. Some important aspects include wither the guards will be hands on or off, If there hands on, How much training will they have, and how is liability from any negative interaction be handled.” — Frank Costa, President Nexgen Security Guard Protection Services.
