Retail Security Guarding

Retail security guards for stores has changed, it’s no longer only about keeping the stereotypical offender out. It’s now also focusing on service, teamwork, and being led by intelligence. Even though in some cases it may seem like all that is needed is physical strength and a forbidding look, our officers have been trained to provide exceptional customer service skills first to protect employees, then safeguard the brand name, followed by assets last.

Our clients want their consumers to have a fantastic experience, and not feel intimidated or harassed. Unfortunately, today’s intervention might lead to acts of violence, which neither our cops nor your workers want to be confronted with.

So, if you’re searching for a service-first business with more than 100 years of retail security expertise and the same family name and reputation to protect, we’ll safeguard your brand in the same way that we will our own.

Retail Store Detectives

Is it covert or overt? It’s always preferable to scare off potential offenders. When there is a loss of inventory that can’t be explained, or when professional offenders or gangs target your store, a different strategy is required.

Our Retail Store detectives are carefully selected and trained officers who have had years of experience in law enforcement. They know how to blend in with their surroundings and can quickly identify Organized Crime gangs and offenders. And while you may be tempted to ask your uniformed security provider to put some plainclothes officers on the job, it’s important to first assess the risks involved; detection and detention come with a certain amount of risk that could backfire if not executed properly. Lodge Service is happy to provide retailers with advice in this area or offer our professional store detective team for hire.
