Do security officers reduce crime?

09.09.2020

Generally, the government is saddled with the responsibility of keeping the life and properties of citizens safe. However, the shortage of personnel means passing the bulk of this responsibility to citizens themselves who now seek refuge from private security officer companies. But does it really help to reduce crime? Do security officers really have a deterrent effect on preventing crime, or is it just forcing the perpetrator to move the location or change their method?

The role of a security officer is worthy of recognition. They can effectively improve the detection rate, analyze the surveillance filming and alarm, and notify nearby police officers in time. One great advantage of the Internet era is that the speed of information dissemination is very high. Of course, with advanced technological developments, the illegal activities of criminals are getting more and more concealed, which requires citizens to strengthen their own security protection. 

In addition, perimeter security products such as electronic fences can prevent unauthorized entry or burglary in advance. The front-end fence with high-voltage pulse electricity gives intruders a great sense of deterrence: the visible perimeter fence brings more obstacles and alarms to the intruder. Multi-level linkage, linkage with security alarm systems such as video surveillance, enhances the level of security protection. Reduce the number of security personnel and expenses, reduce the owner’s expenditure, low maintenance, and reduce maintenance costs.

Security officers not only focus on external threats but also stay alert for any internal disruptions by employees or a visitor. Where a crime is being commited in their presence, security officers play a vital role in detaining perpetrators or preventing escape pending the arrival of a police officer. There is usually a standard protocol to follow in this regard.
