If you’re traveling to Mexico, it’s important to be aware of the safety and security measures in place at the hotel you’re staying at. Many hotels in Mexico employ armed security guards to protect guests and property. Private armed security is a common sight in Mexico, especially in areas that are frequented by tourists. While this may seem alarming at first, it’s important to remember that security is a top priority for Mexican hotels and larger stores or malls. By having armed security guards on staff, hotels are assuring their guests of quality security, sending a warning to would-be criminals, and, of course, providing real human walls of security around guests. We at WWPro have security guard personnel placed in hotels in Cancun, and we’re available for having out teams work at other hotels in the area.
Armed security guards are responsible for the safety of the guests and employees of the hotel. They patrol the premises and respond to any security incidents that occur. They may also provide armed escorts for guests who request them. In some cases, security guards may also be responsible for providing first aid and other immediate medical assistance.
If you’re staying at a hotel in Mexico, be sure to familiarize yourself with the security procedures that are in place. By understanding the role of armed security guards, you can help ensure your safety and the safety of those around you.
If you’ve been to Mexico over the past years you know it is a common site to see armed security in hotels and other concourses. The first thing you’ll notice about armed security guards in Mexican hotels is that they are always armed with a gun. This is because they need to be able to protect staff, guests and themselves in the event of an attack. They also wear a uniform that makes them easily identifiable as security guards – a deterrent to threats unto itself.
When you check into a Mexican hotel, an armed security guard or two will usually be the first staff people you see. Sometimes they will ask for your ID and then escort you to your room. Of course, they are on duty during the night, so you can feel safe knowing that there is someone armed and trained to protect you 24/7 if anything happens. Armed security guards in Mexican hotels are there to deter would-be criminals and therefore should be of a certain level of training, as are our WWPro security guard teams in place in Cancun hotels. They are there to be helpful. So if you ever find yourself in a situation where you need help, don’t hesitate to ask the armed security guard for assistance.
