Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
In a world of heightened crime, security today is more a necessity than the luxury it once was for the rich and famous.
Security companies provide professional, skilled and experienced guards for business, property and personnel for clients' peace of mind.
To secure and keep clients, professionalism, experience, vigilance and dedication to protect them is the key to success. Employ operational personnel so that you can concentrate on running your business.
The lackadaisical approach of the early days are over and the security business must now comply with strict regulations, especially for personnel.
Unarmed security guards should undergo a background investigation, be checked for criminal records and references.
They must be at least aged 21 and have good interpersonal skills. They must also have proof that they have completed a registered security training programme.
Give your staff some experience before setting them loose on clients.
Guards must be computer literate to operate surveillance cameras, computer-operated access controls or guard technology-driven industries.
To ensure that your company stays ahead of the competition, train your staff to identify suspicious activities and people.
Armed guards should have completed a certified weapons proficiency course. They will also need to complete a more advanced security training programme, which will include dealing with dangerous criminals.
