A federal judge in Chicago ordered yesterday that a man that is accused of murdering a security guard during a robbery will be held without bond.

Thanks to all the security guards and others that are working over the holidays.  Most people are able to take time off and enjoy the holidays with their families, but some professions don't allow such luxuries.  A security guard does not have that luxury.  Buildings and other posts must be secured.  Criminals do not take vacations.  Criminals are opportunistic.  When people are relaxed is when they are most vulnerable.  Security guards, police, firemen, and others must work through holidays and weekends to keep the rest of us safe.

December 22, 2011:  Special thanks to Vonda and Peggy.

Happy birthday, Amanda!

Rest in peace, Tony.

December 6, 2011:  I worked a security guard post last night in Nashville.  I was expecting the wet weather, so I was prepared for it.  I was not prepared for the temperature.  It was cold yeaterday evening!  I was dry, but I was freezing.  Fortunately, part of the patrol at this particular security guard post is inside.  At least I got to thaw out part of the time.  Security guards (and anyone else that works outside frequently) should always keep a close eye on the weather.

Last Friday afternoon a contract security guard that was on duty at a Kmart in Florida was threatened by a man with a knife.  The man threatened the security guard after the guard confronted the man for shoplifting.

Thank you to all of our security guards and non-security personnel.  We appreciate all the hard work.  A special thanks should be given to Peggy.  Her hard work has made On Guard Security what it is today.  Thank you to Andy for his help with a patrol car earlier today.  There are many other security guards and other people that deserve a thank you, but the list is too long to start.  Thanks everyone!
