At a car dealership in Slidell, Louisiana, approximately $120,000 worth of merchandise was stolen overnight – specifically, 124 wheels and tires. The owner of this Chevrolet dealership arrived to work to find dozens of cars sitting on blocks. The heist is believed to have been committed by professional thieves. The most glaringly obvious mistake of the dealership? Not having armed and uniformed security guards on the premises.
Security guards work in stores, clubs, offices, and apartment buildings. They patrol car dealerships and construction sites and schools. What about security guards at private homes? Does the hiring of a Korner Security guard seem like a luxury rather than a necessity? It depends on where you live, who you are, and what you want to protect.
Some small business owners consider a live security presence a more effective crime deterrent than any high-tech security system. Your operation may not be big and mighty, but it can still warrant the presence of an armed and uniformed security guard.
Every company, client, and situation that calls for security guards is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to security. Certainly, there are boxes to check for every job, but the work that any security guard does for your company should be customized to your needs. If you need a guard on site, you need a plan to make the job they do as impactful as possible. Don’t settle for less than a customized security plan from your security guard company.
Teenage hijinks have escalated from egging houses and staying out beyond curfew to trespassing at a car dealership and destroying vehicles. The break-in at a Houston-area CarMax earlier this month proves that armed security guards can be the difference between cleaning up after costly vandalism and stopping it before it starts.
Any time of year is the right time to create a more robust security plan for your company, retail setting, or building.

Security is an ever-present need at funeral homes. Mourners may not think about this aspect of the funeral process, but funeral home owners and employees should always have security on their mind. The social climate we live in leaves every building and business in a constant state of limbo, not knowing what could happen or when. Having a layer of protection built in for your funeral home through Korner Security guards helps mourners feel safe and protects your business.

When you have lost a loved one, the last thing on your mind is security. You are grieving and overwhelmed. You are making funeral arrangements and posting an obituary. But those are exactly the feelings and actions that thieves are counting on, particularly those who scan public obituaries that list the days and times of local viewings and services, essentially announcing precisely when you will be out of your home. Having a Korner Security guard in place is an effective deterrent against thieves.
