5 Reasons Why Your Facility Needs Armed Security Over Unarmed Security:

When it comes to protecting your facility, the choice between armed and unarmed security is not just a matter of budget—it's a matter of life and death.

Here are five compelling reasons why you should choose armed security to

safeguard your premises:


1. Immediate Threat Neutralization


Imagine an active shooter entering your facility. An unarmed security guard, no matter how well-trained, cannot stop an armed assailant. This inability to act means the shooter can continue their rampage unchecked. Lives will be lost, and the aftermath will leave your community shattered and grieving.


2. Enhanced Deterrence


Criminals target facilities where they expect little resistance. Unarmed security sends a clear message that your facility is an easy target. Without the presence of armed guards, you risk becoming a statistic, another tragic headline about an avoidable attack.


3. Swift Response Time


During an emergency, every second counts. Police response times average 5-7 minutes, which can mean the difference between life and death. Unarmed guards can do little more than call for help, while armed security personnel can respond immediately, preventing a situation from escalating and minimizing casualties.


4. Protection of Valuable Assets


Your facility houses valuable physical assets and irreplaceable human lives. Imagine the devastating impact of an incident that your unarmed security could do nothing but watch. Armed security protects your assets and the people within your facility, preventing catastrophic loss and irreversible damage.


5. False Sense of Security


Unarmed security might make you feel safe, but it is a dangerous illusion. This false sense of security can lead to devastating consequences when a real threat arises. The cost of armed security is a small price to pay for genuine protection and peace of mind. Knowing that trained professionals are on-site and equipped to handle the worst-case scenarios.


Unarmed security might offer a sense of safety, but it’s a false sense of security when faced with real threats. The tragic reality is that unarmed guards cannot stop an active assailant. When lives are at stake, the cost of armed security is a small price to pay for genuine protection and peace of mind.


Don't wait for a tragedy to reconsider your security measures. Ensure your facility has armed professionals who can protect and save lives. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help safeguard your facility with the highest level of security.
