Office Space

In an office environment, the security officer is usually the first person an employee or potential customer will see and interact with.  First impressions are crucial which is why it is important to have an officer with the right skill set and training at your office.  American Security understands how important these impressions are and we know what traits to look for in officers and how to train them to ensure your employees and customers start with a positive experience.  Security Rounds are done four times a day.

During their rounds our officers typically check:
