Who Needs a Security Guard?
Our job isn’t to appraise what you produce, how you produce it, or whom you sell to. We believe every business is entitled to function safely and without threat of damages or loss. At our core, we are intensely interested in keeping you and your business secure. A few of our typical clients include:
- Retail Stores
- 24-hour businesses
- Office Buildings
- Residential Communities
Virtually any place of business can benefit from our security protection and we can tailor that to the proper safety that your business needs. Full customization of security guard schedules, presentation (plainclothes or uniform?), and equipment means that this security feature caters to the image you have cultivated for your business, and makes this a necessity for the safety of your assets.
What Can Security Guards Do?
We understand that each of our client’s needs are unique. That is why our security guards are trained to provide a variety of services. Some of the things we offer include:
You may want to establish a security guard service that does more than patrol. You may need someone to review surveillance or even walk employees or customers to their vehicles after hours. A security guard can help defend a number of aspects of your business that doesn’t involve simply walking around the perimeter (although, that can certainly be an option as well!). It boils down to asking yourself what are your security needs? We have years of experience in creating the ideal protection package by asking the questions no one else thinks to ask. We find the weak links in your armor and, instead of attempting to hide them, actually find ways to fix them.
Hiring a security company as part of your overall safety plan will go a long way in preventing criminals from targeting you. Unfortunately, businesses are a target for vandalism and theft. A secure presence will certainly discourage criminal activity and help your business keep a safe reputation. Guardian recognizes the line between creating a crime-free zone (like a prison cell) and a place wherein crime is significantly deterred all the while business is still encouraged. Your business is not a jail cell, it shouldn’t feel or behave like one. There should be a balance between safety and claustrophobia. Our experience in protecting businesses means we know where that line is for your business.
The security guards from Guardian are top of the line. We train our professionals to handle crimes that range from theft, violence, vandalism—and everything in between. We want our clients to feel confident when they call on our services; they get the most competent people in the industry. We understand that quality service means constantly evolving with the changes that occur in society. That is why our personnel is required to continue training and implement those new security techniques in their positions. Our constant and consistent training does not stop at physical reactions to physical crimes. Our personnel are trained in everything from reading surveillance and interpreting body language and micro expressions to categorizing anonymous threats and responding to the newest trends of criminal activity in the age of the Internet. Just as you and your business change and evolve with time, so too do our security guards — by remaining adaptable at all times.
PEACE OF MIND
It has been proven that the presence of a security guard actually offers people a sense of safety. People simply feel better when they know that a trained professional is keeping an eye out. As a business owner, it lets you know that someone else also has your best interest in mind. When you succeed, we know that we have succeeded as well. It’s a win-win from both sides of the spectrum.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) Clean Energy Communities (CEC) program is flourishing, with now 100 communities becoming certified and hundreds more still getting state support to reduce energy waste, cut emissions and combat climate change. The program, launched last August, helps local communities develop and implement clean energy goals, provides important technical assistance and tools, and awards incentives to invest in additional clean energy initiatives once communities implement four high impact action items and receive their CEC designation. Local governments do not always have capacity and technical expertise to tackle the full spectrum of clean energy and climate issues; state programs like CEC help facilitate action and can serve as a model for other state-local partnerships across the country.
The CEC program is innovative, pragmatic and builds on best practices from across the country to encourage effective local action. Having been in place for less than two years, a total of 100 counties, towns, and villages have already received their CEC designation. And more than 240 communities are participating in the program. These communities range from bustling cities like White Plains, to suburban communities like Huntington, to small villages like Falconer. In total, these local jurisdictions have completed more than 645 high impact action items, ranging from converting their streetlights to lower energy consuming LED bulbs to installing electric vehicle charging stations at city hall to streamlining the approval process for new solar installations. NYSERDA has created a user-friendly map documenting the participating communities, showcasing the popularity of the program across the state and the wide variety of high impact action items that these communities are undertaking.
One of those action items is a requirement that buildings benchmark and annually report their energy use. Benchmarking buildings is a high-value, low-cost efficiency strategy, which is the foundation of effective building energy management, enabling owners to understand their buildings’ performance, identify energy efficiency opportunities, and save money. As part of CEC, many of New York’s communities have created requirements for reporting energy use of public buildings, and we expect that their example will help encourage private building owners around the state who also want to save money and improve their buildings’ performance.
NRDC’s new report, America’s Clean Energy Frontier: The Pathway to a Safer Climate Future, outlines how the U.S. can curb greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050, largely by substantial increases in clean energy, noting the important contributions from actions at the local level. As more and more communities around the country sign on to meet the commitments of the Paris agreement (including 26 in New York State), these local jurisdictions must be empowered with the information and tools needed to implement the policies and programs to achieve these goals.
