If you have a question that is not covered below, contact Guard West Security Services at 760-801-3073 for immediate assistance.

What services do you offer?

At Guard West Security Services, we are proud to offer a wide range of guard services. This includes:

  • Armed Security Guards
  • Unarmed Security Guards
  • Patrol Services
  • High Rise Security Guards
  • Retail Security Guards

However, these are not all the services we can provide. We can create a custom security plan for your specific needs.

What kind of training do your security guards have?

We only hire guards who have a valid Guard Card as issued by the state. To get this certification, they must complete a training course approved by the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services.

They must also pass a comprehensive Livescan fingerprint background check to weed out any applications with disqualifying criminal offenses.

We offer competitive pay, flexible schedules, and benefits to our employees, which allows us to attract the best of the best.

Should we hire an armed or unarmed guard?

There is no single answer that applies to all situations. You will need to consider the type of risk your location has. For example, if you are hiring a guard for a skating rink, you will be less likely to need an armed guard than if you were hiring a guard for a bank.

Second, you will consider the impact the guard will have on your clientele. Having an armed guard at a convenience store can dissuade would-be shoplifters and make law-abiding shoppers feel safer. On the other hand, an armed guard at a toy story might make shoppers feel uncomfortable.

If you are not sure which is best for you, contact Guard West Security Services, and we can discuss the specifics of your situation.

How much does it cost to hire a security guard?

There are many factors involved in determining the cost of your security investment. Do you want ongoing security services, or are you looking for security at a special event? Do you need patrol guards or guards for your retail store?

The easiest way to get an idea of how much security would cost for your specific location is to contact Guard West Security Services at 760-801-3073 and request a quote.

Is an ongoing contract required for security services?

No. Whether you need long-term or short-term services, we have you covered. At Guard West Security Services, we create specific plans for each individual client. This assures you only pay for the services you need and that you do not get locked into a long-term contract when one is not necessary.
