The coronavirus has been catastrophic for many small businesses, from restaurants to jewelry stores to even local credit unions. As we go into the summer we’ll see more and more how opening up businesses to the public triggers further covid-19 outbreaks, these potential increases in the disease in turn affecting overall business livelihood. It is a cycle that is being closely watched. In the meantime, certain businesses are open or are planning on opening as states allow them too. Many of these businesses will need armed security guards.
Armed security guards are a very weighty step for a business, coming with grave responsibilities. We’ve already seen instances across the U.S. where customers coming into big stores or restaurants are reacting violently to being required to wear masks. Employees have lost their lives, or been gravely wounded.
These kinds of tragic incidents may be prevented with the presence of armed security officers. Any store or place of business with valuable property or the potential for injury to customers should be looking at deciding to hire armed security officers. As we open up, and all 50 states are not opening up to a certain degree, there will be a wise demand for deeply experienced military or police background security people armed and ready to respond to whatever threatening situations may arise. The pandemic is proving to bring out the worst in people, along with the best in people. It is best to be prepared.
