What services do I need?
“Static security detail” is exactly what it sounds like – security personnel stationed at one point. This may involve manning the access points to a residential or business premise, guarding valuables and equipment against theft or loss, providing security at an event, or even personal protection. The bottom line is – it requires the security operative to be onsite.
The main thing you need to consider when it comes to choosing the best static security services is that the personnel you get are appropriate for the situation. This may involve ensuring that they have the right personality, skillset, or level of training required for your specific needs.
So, what can a static security operator do for you? Here’s everything you need to know about this capability and when you may need it.
There are generally two kinds of static security officers: Unarmed security personnel vs. armed security operatives. The latter are generally deployed to man the homes and business premises of Ultra High Net-Worth Individuals (UHNWI), as well as high-profile persons like senior corporate executives, celebrities, politicians, judges, etc.
They are also deployed in high-threat regions and hostile locations and usually have extensive military experience. Some of their attributes include:
Although the term “static” security implies that the operator should be rooted to one point, that’s not exactly the case. Among their primary roles is to conduct frequent and thorough patrols of the area they are manning to check for suspicious activity and signs of a breach.
This means actively looking for burglars, intruders, thieves, and any sign of forced entry. Anything that looks out of place should immediately be flagged as a cause for concern. Most people aren’t aware of all the other aspects of a static security operator’s job. Some of these include:
As they conduct their regular patrols, static security guards don’t typically stick to a schedule. They may also switch up their routes to add an element of surprise if an incident was to happen.
If something out of the ordinary occurs, they ensure that they log it in their incident book designated for recording such events.
The specific duties of a static security operator vary depending on the size of the site, what it is used for, the number of people present, whether they’re operating in a hostile or non-hostile environment, among others.
That being said, here’s a list of the duties a static security operator is expected to perform:
Although static security officers are supposed to protect a property from intruders, they do so much more than that. They are a great asset to have to ensure that your assets, valuables and person remain protected at all times.
