I can honestly tell you that Assured is the best company we have hired at the FCM Lofts in many years and we hope to continue the relationship for many years to come.
Insurance premiums were killing me after six burglaries and I was almost ready to sell. I hired Assured Security in 2008 and haven't had to file a claim since.
For eight years I've contracted with Assured Security Services for security patrol at four of my commercial lease properties, two in Dekalb county and two in Atlanta, (Fulton county).

Private security is something that has been around for a very long time (in one form or another). Though we would like to think that we live in a world that allows for safety from personal harm, theft, or vandalism, the facts show us otherwise. Crime rates are higher than they have ever been and criminals are becoming much more daring and ruthless in their desperate attempts.
There truly is a security service for virtually anything you would ever imagine. What I will do here is go over the major services that are offered by most private security firms.
Starting from the top:
This service is typically used for celebrities, corporate executives, high profile individuals, and dignitaries. Personal security is geared toward protecting a single individual. In most cases, persons of this type are most interested in hiring armed security agents (A.K.A Body Guards)
Executive level security services are geared toward protecting a group of high profile individuals. Typically, executive protection services are employed by a group of corporate or business professionals who might be traveling overseas or entering into a potentially sticky situation.
Event security is among the top level services provided by security firms. This service deals with providing extremely savvy protection agents to monitor and secure small to large events. These events can range from small business parties to large political speeches.
Here I have listed only the top 3 types of private security services available. Most firms are willing to tailor fit their services to meet your specific needs. Nearly all of the security firms across the world are well versed in a vast array of situations and most of these companies only hire off-duty (or retired) police officers and military personnel. The reason for this is that men who come from backgrounds such as these have been very well trained in the areas necessary to provide the absolute best security service possible.
It would come highly recommended for you to do your due diligence when looking to hire one of these agencies. As of late, the vast majority of these firms are available online and you can contact them for interviews.
In conclusion, I hope that this article has been helpful and I send my regards in your endeavor for a private security agency.

I was a police officer for over 15 years and dealt with a lot of tenant and property manager complaints at various apartment complexes throughout my city. Most of my dealings was with the tenants, because I worked the midnight shift and none of the property managers were up working at that time. So we became the complaint solvers. Complaints came in regularly at some of the same apartment complexes which become troublesome. I would always ask myself what is being done on these properties to prevent criminal activity from occurring and why are the complaints coming from repeated complainants. Well the answer I found was "Nothing."
Most if not all the complaints were based on a reactive response. A tenant would have their car broken into and would call the police to file a complaint, because that is what they were told to do by management. I would ask the complainant/tenant if there was security on the property and their answer was either " I don't know", or "No we don't". Almost always there was no chance of us( The Police) catching any suspects who committed the crime because it was always after the incident had occurred. On some rare occasions we would receive a call from a tenant who was witnessing a criminal act in progress on the property. But because our police resources weren't always abundant by the time we arrived on site to catch the suspect(s) in action they were long gone. Yes we would take the report, lift fingerprints, and conduct a canvass, but honestly that was to make the tenant reporting the incident happy. The report would be filed with Detective Division and be stacked away with the other hundreds of reports that were investigating, never pulling the report to investigate the incident unless it became a crime epidemic on the property.
So as you see from the information listed above the property manager's level of security on their property is to call the police when an incident occurs. This is what they tell their tenants when they lease out an apartment. This is obviously classified as a reactive approach to security. What I'm about to tell you is how to take a proactive approach to security in your business or on your property.
Now I know a lot of property manager's are going to say that they don't have a budget for security and that is what the police are for. But remember this, the police are under staffed, unfortunately taking care of higher priority calls, and almost always responding to the complaint after the incident has occurred. And what I found out which is frightening is that the only way property managers would provide security on their property is if a critical incident happened such as a homicide, rape, home invasion, or car jacking. It seems that security is the last item in everyone's budget but the most important in my mind.
Property manager's first need to see what issues they have on their properties and put them in classifications. Next they need to contact a professional security company to provide them with a security site assessment or free security consultation of their property based on the issues and challenges that are happening. Remember this process doesn't happen over night, it takes weeks, and sometimes months, before a solution is found. But remember to be patient during this process. A good security company will pull records of all the criminal incidents that have occurred in a certain mile radius, time that they occurred, and the type of incidents occurring. They will see if there were any arrests made recently that can be tracked back to their property.
The next part in the process is customizing a security plan to meet their needs. One of the best security services and the best deterrent out there is called the roving patrol. This type of security provides randomized patrols on the property from a highly marked and visible security vehicle with flashing LED lights. The vehicle enters the property at different times during the night documenting what they see and hear. Some companies provide real time reporting, which allows the officer to write his reports on a computer which is inside the vehicle while he is on the property. These reports are then uploaded instantly to a program which the client can log in and see what is going on their property. And since were in the technology age, GPS tracked security vehicles provide accountability to the client allowing them to justify the time that the security company is on their property.
I can sum up my whole article by saying this- It is required by all registered motor vehicle owners to have their vehicle's insured in case of accident. They pay a premium which varies based on their driver history and the amount of tickets or accidents they have had in the past. Or what risk level they are. You pay this insurance premium as long as you have a registered car on the road. You may never need it but know that if a accident happens you do have it. This can be applied to security. Management companies own properties that require apartments to be leased by tenants. If you provide security on the property you may never need it but if a threat or criminal incident does occur you know you have security on your property to address the issue. Remember being proactive is the best security approach, don't wait for the worst to occur on your property to make that decision.
