Reactive or Proactive Security- What would you prefer?
Proactivity is about anticipation. Being in tune with your business environment is critical to reading the signs and reacting accordingly. In terms of security services, anticipating possible threats is a crucial part of a security plan. This requires observation and investigation before a potential incident. Attentiveness is crucial in proactive security.
Behind the Eight Ball
Reactive implies that you don’t have initiative. Events set the agenda, not people. There should be no surprises. Being prepared is being ahead of the game. A reactive approach often means you do not have all the information. A solid security plan means your guards are informed.
Proactive Security Services
There are a variety of proactive security solutions for residential apartment complexes, car dealerships, industrial properties, construction sites, retail centers, medical offices, and other commercial properties. This can include installing an apartment access control system, alarm response, incident documentation, security guards, and remote monitoring service. The security needs of commercial properties across North America vary. As a result, some properties will need a custom mix of security solutions to protect their property from thieves, vandals, and drug dealers.
