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.

Reasons Funeral Homes Need Korner Security Guards
Grief and mourning are complex, multi-layered, and, occasionally, volatile. It’s hard to know what might come of this emotional state in a person’s life, and funeral homes must be prepared for the inevitable and the unexpected.
There are many reasons funeral homes need the presence and experience of Korner Security guards, including concerns about:
- Tense family situations escalating during a viewing or service.
- Parking lots being targeted by thieves.
- Crowded viewings.
- Parking space disputes.
- Body theft.
Funeral homes are a charged and sad environment, but that doesn’t mean security should be lax. There is always someone who is thinking of a way to benefit from another’s grief. If anything, security should be that much stronger during viewings, services, and funerals to protect people who are otherwise distracted by their mourning and guard against damage to funeral home property.
Security Guard Options for Funeral Homes
Combining technology, surveillance cameras, and security guards offer a comprehensive protection plan for funeral homes. While roaming security guards or those stationed at entrances and exits may be obvious choices for safety measures, on-site controlled security is also important.
Placing guards at the doors to sensitive areas of a funeral home, like a prep room or employees-only areas or offices that store proprietary information, discourages intruders. Whether guards are armed or unarmed, their presence alone demands good behavior and, should a disruptive event occur, they can quickly get a situation under control.
