A Closer Look At The Types Of Private Security

June 13th, 2022

Whether it’s a home or a business, knowing that your property is protected is important. Not only does it keep you and your belongings safe, but it gives you tremendous peace of mind as well. 

For those who want to maximize their level of protection, investing in private security is something that can help immensely. 

Benefits Of Private Security

There are several reasons that going with private security might make sense. Instead of just letting your property be protected by the police or fire departments, private security are there to monitor you more closely. This leads to:

  • Protection customized for you
  • Faster response times
  • More attention to issues
  • Alerts when something is detected and you’re not there
  • 24/7 protection no matter what

Simply put, it’s money well spent for most people. But, there are several different types of private security that you can choose to add. Here’s a look at the main options you’ll have available to you when you start looking at private security for your property.  


Technology makes it easier and affordable to install private security systems. You can then access your system from mobile devices or computers and get an alert sent to you if a situation develops while you’re not home.

Private Patrol

Private patrol services are just what they sound like – a security officer is hired to patrol your home or business at the times that you choose. This means that intrusion is less likely and criminals are much more likely to be caught.

Private Guards

Guards can be armed or unarmed. They’re usually hired for businesses, but in some cases they may be needed for homes as well – such as when home parties are going on or when something has happened to cause you concern.

Private Alarm Response

Private alarm response is similar to private patrol, but they’re not always actually on site. Instead, they are linked to your alarm and security systems. When something is triggered, a security officer is sent to the property to check on things. This goes beyond the average response from a police officer, who will usually only do a drive by of the property.
