While the covid-19 epidemic is putting millions of American out of work and seeking relief in unemployment insurance, the hiring of security guards has jumped in the midst of this global crisis. Many security companies are looking far and wide to hire competent security personnel for the many properties that need round-the-clock or part-time physical security.
The prospect of leaving properties unguarded has small to mid-size to large-size business owners and managers hiring in security people in large numbers. This is in the thousands per the more populous states like California.
The worry, of course, is on-site crime during these times of empty shops, schools, universities and slowed-down commerce in larger establishments. Hospitals, medical clinics are hiring more guards during this time of front line doctors, nurses and all health care givers being taxed with covid-19 cases and life-saving measures. Right now, security in hospitals is one of the most sought-after hiring groups in the professional security industry.
Even grocery stores are beefing up security in response to the pandemic’s potential crime opportunism.
