Why a Security Guard Service is important for businesses in Rhode Island

When it comes to security, businesses in Rhode Island can’t afford to take any chances. That’s why it’s important to have a security guard service on hand to help protect your property and employees. Here are five reasons why a security guard service is so important for businesses in Rhode Island.

Businesses in Rhode Island are at risk for theft and vandalism.

A security guard service can help deter criminals from targeting your business. Security guards can provide a visible presence that will make would-be criminals think twice before attempting to break into your property or cause vandalism.

Rhode Island’s crime rating is slightly above the National Median of 26.9 for “crimes per square mile”. Rhode Island’s crime output is 32 per sq. mile. Some of the higher theft and vandalism come from the state’s capital of Providence, Rhode Island. The next few higher-ranked theft locations in Rhode Island would be Woonsocket, Pawtucket, Newport, Central Falls, etc.

A security guard service can help deter crime and protect your business property

Security guards for hire don’t always need to be armed or Police to maintain a crime-free zone. Merely the presence of a uniformed security guard ensures that criminals will think twice before targeting that particular property. Security guards can also provide visibility to help identify potential security threats. Detecting an issue beforehand, can help prevent major business problems from occurring.

Having a security guard service can also improve your business’ image and make your employee + customers feel safer

At SecurityRI, we have found many companies enjoy having the positive business image of a “professional” security guard(s). A professional security guard with proper training brings “peace of mind” to the business employees, clients, shoppers, vendors, and many more who come in contact or visibly see the security guard at work.

A security guard can bring a human element to your security solution

As we notice some businesses would rather install surveillance cameras and employee-operated access control systems. We feel this approach will help with some deterring of crimes, although may be more reactive than proactive.

Having the human element as mentioned earlier will assist with deterring crimes, physical eyes & ears, human training, and real-time reporting/analytics. Also, having a physical security guard will extend your business staff without having to hire additional employees. Businesses do enjoy outsourcing because they do not have to worry about the self-employed security guard not showing up for work. The security vendor has backup security guards on standby for call-outs. A professional security company can manage the schedule logistics and back-fill the schedule without the client even knowing the guard has called out.

It’s important to choose a reputable security guard company that has experience guarding businesses in Rhode Island

When choosing a security guard company you need to ensure the company is reputable. Please do not shop for the cheapest, because cheap – indicates the security vendor needs to avoid some important infrastructure expenses to provide such a low rate.

At SecurityRI, we reinvest the higher rate to cover costs for well-trained security guards, patrol supervisors, professional uniforms, and the latest technology/equipment.

Also, as a 3rd generational, 40-year family business we understand providing top client services, respect for our employees, and positive growth for everyone.


Rhode Island businesses need to take security seriously, and a Security Guard Service is one important piece of the puzzle. Contact us today for a zero hassle security assessment – we can help you determine what level of protection your business needs. Stay Safe!
