Security guards play an important role in any community and NSG security guards play that important role in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky market.  Security guards are responsible for maintaining order and safety in businesses and public places like parks and recreational areas.  Security guards can help protect people and property from potential threats, help prevent crime, and provide a sense of security and peace of mind. 

NSG is protecting Cincinnati businesses in many ways

In today’s world, security guards are more important than ever. At NSG, our security guards are trained to protect people and property in a variety of ways. They can patrol an area to deter crime, respond to security alarms, and investigate suspicious activity. However, that is not all that our guards are positioned to carry out.  NSG security guards can also provide guidance and assistance to people who are lost or in need of help, especially if that guards is stationed as concierge guard in a lobby area. Our guards are also able to provide important information to law enforcement and other emergency personnel, such as descriptions of suspects or witnesses. Security guards also help to create a safe and secure environment for people to enjoy. Our roving guards that are on patrol can monitor and restrict access to certain areas, provide crowd control, and help to ensure that everyone is behaving appropriately. Security guards can also act as a deterrent to crime, as potential criminals may think twice before attempting to commit a crime in an area that is being monitored by security personnel.

Guards can do more than just protect

Our NSG team provides more than just protection from unwanted visitors and guests.  We know that creating a positive atmosphere, in turn makes customers and employees to feel secure.  Often though, a company’s building is one of their most important assets.  NSG guards are valuable because they can also act as the eyes and ears to any building.  Guards can make rounds throughout the building and be trained to notice water leaks and potential hazards.  Our guards can alert maintenance more quickly and often help a bad situation from getting worse and more expensive.  We have often been able to help on the weekends and night shifts when the buildings are typically empty and there is no one monitoring the site.   Having a guard there not not only protect the property but also serve as a first line of defense when it comes to common maintenance issues is vital to our customers.
