Security Guard Services Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of security guard services. Vendors in this market provide security guards to patrol a company’s facilities and grounds as well as control access to company property. Guards serve as a deterrent for crimes and trespassers as well as to record and report suspicious activities. Their access-control duties may involve personnel screening, visitor processing, package screening, traffic control and vehicle inspection. Security guards are usually dedicated to a particular facility, although mobile patrol units can be used to serve multiple locations and clients. Security guard services can include bodyguard services, but they exclude investigative or detective services and guard dog rental.
