Introducing Altavon Security Group, WHO SAID SECURITY IS OPTIONAL?

Share Article

No one who has lived through the recent weeks of terror attacks, crimes and gun violence can doubt that security is one of the highest priorities of the world and not an optional extra. There has been a significant growth in the concerns for better security services and safety measures.

Services from professional security guard companies are being widely sought for by big and small businesses to ensure the safety of their clients and by property managers to make sure that the occupants of high-rise buildings are secure. This makes the job of a security guard a very sensitive and impactful one. Whether it is night time or a rainy day, a security guard has to have the patience to be alert and aware enough to spot and deter a criminal activity. While some of them are assigned with the duties of enforcing rules and regulations, others need to perform security checks by patrolling. The guard also has to be familiar with the laws and legalities set up by the State/Provincial authorities. This great sense of responsibility and accountability can come to a security officer only as a result of rigorous training by a licensed, insured and bonded security company.

The recent series of terrorist attacks around the world is a wake-up call for the security companies to tighten their training policies and introduce new procedures. The need of the hour is to make continuing investment in security guards’ training and development in several areas including emergency response, use of latest security technologies, customer service, crowd control, security law enforcement, use of force, risk management, workplace violence control and even personal safety. Amidst the increasing crime, another indispensable part of training should be to prepare the guards to prioritize and share critical information with law enforcement effectively and quickly so that the situation of crisis can be avoided.

“Post 9/11, the term "terrorism" is no longer a taboo, but a serious issue we have to accept. Therefore investing into our security associates is a key factor for our business and the community we serve,” believes Raheel (Ray) Syed, President of Altavon Security.

Raheel (Ray) is an industry professional with more than 13 years of experience in the security industry. Raheel’s sole mission behind starting Altavon, a security services firm, is to introduce a dynamic, systematic and standardized training in order to contribute towards prevention of current and future crimes and quality improvement at the point of service. Altavon security guards go through a training process which is much more than a set number of hours in the class. Instead of using traditional training techniques, Altavon is using a unique approach to have measurable impact on the ways guards deal with the modern world crime threats.
