What to Look for in a Building Security Service

Building Security Service

As a building owner or operator, you have a multitude of tasks and responsibilities. From making sure your tenants are content to keeping on top of maintenance requests and delivery operations – there’s hardly time to catch your breath.


But that doesn’t mean you can forget about your building security service. This service is crucial to making sure your tenants, their employees and guests, and your property are kept safe and secure – twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

When you’re looking to hire a building security service, there are a variety of needs that would like taken care of – including foot patrol, concierge desk security, mobile patrol, and whether or not you require armed or unarmed security personnel.


Here are a few different ideas you should consider.


Local Services

There are plenty of national security guard companies that can provide their services. However, it’s worth noting that when you are dealing with a company that’s in another state – and has thousands of employees – getting quick and attentive service might not be possible.


A local security company – like Assured Protection – knows your area and the common challenges faced by security personnel. In addition, their proximity allows for on site visits and consultations, along with quicker response times.


Hiring a local security company translates into helping the state and city economy – Assured Protection has been a member of the Maryland business community for more than two decades, and we’re proud to hire employees from local talent pools. 


Experience Matters

It’s vital that the firm you hire knows what it’s doing – providing security for a building and its surrounding property is a complex challenge that requires knowledge and experience. You should also ensure that the owners and managers have personal experience in security – previous engagement with the armed forces or law enforcement is a big plus.


Assured Protection’s Founder has more than 30 years of experience in the law enforcement and security fields. He shares his knowledge with every one of our employees, providing them with training classes based on his experience and knowledge.



A building security service is tasked to perform multiple duties and operations around the clock – and that requires professional resources. This includes everything from uniforms and personal equipment to motorized electric carts. Assured Protection is constantly updating our equipment and investing in technology to help our personnel perform at the highest level.

Customer Service

Every company knows that customer service is a key part of success and client retention – the security industry isn’t any different. In fact, it’s vital to maintain open lines of communication when it concerns such a sensitive subject. 


When you first contact Assured Protection, you’ll meet with one of our account executives who will review your situation and security needs, which is followed by a tour of your building and facilities to help identify areas that might require extra attention. Your account exec will be there for you throughout your engagement with Assured Protection to make sure you’re 100% satisfied with our services.
