January 15, 2012:  All is well at On Guard Security.  The website was undergoing some modifications over the last week and a half.  Much has happened at On Guard Security during the break.  Our website will be under construction for the next few weeks, but hopefully none of the future changes will cause an interruption as long as this last one.  

On Guard Security would like to thank all of our security guards and our non-security guard personnel!!!

January 3, 2012:  It is a very cold morning in Nashville today!!  Besides the cold, it was also windy.

On Guard Security would like to give a special thanks to Jermaine and Miles!

Police in Nashville believe that a carjacking in Antioch and the robbery of a Mapco in south Nashville last night are connected.  The description of the man that carjacked a woman at Walmart in Antioch matches the description of the man that robbed a nearby Mapco.  Earlier this morning the stolen car was found in Antioch in the same area as the carjacking.

Last night was a very cold and windy night in Nashville.  Unfortunately, I was forced to work an outdoor security guard post last night.  I was less than prepared for last nights weather, and I suffered the whole night.  Security guards should be aware of weather and anything else that might affect their comfort on the job.  I will undoubtedly be well prepared for the next security guard post that I have to work in the cold.

On Guard Security's website is about to go under construction to completely remake and update the entire website.  Construction will begin soon.  Sorry for any inconveniences, and thank you for your patience. 

Last week in Chattanooga police arrested a man on two counts of aggravated assualt for stabbing his brother with a fork and hitting his sister with a two-by-four.

Early yesterday morning a fire that was so hot that it melted the smoke detectors forced a family in Antioch, Tennessee to evacuate their home.  The fire was called in by the neighbors.  Fortunately, the family was able to escape the house in time.  The fire is being investigated, but arson is not suspected.

A special thanks to Vonda for help with the website.

Lexington, Kentucky had only 15 homicides in 2011.  That is the lowest number of homicides in Lexington since 2007.  Unfortunately, this year has started off in the wrong direction.  Police were investigating a homicide in Lexington at 5 a.m. yesterday.  The alleged murderer is in custody. 

Late last week three people that are accused of robbing several tannaing salons and two other businesses in New York were arrested because of an observant security guard.  The security guard was hired by one of the tanning salons that the three people were accused of robbing.  The security guard provided police with a clue during his lunch break on the first day that he was working at the tanning salon.  It is so refreshing to see a security guard that is in the news for something positive.  Generally the only way that security guards or security guard companies get in the news is when something terrible happens.

January 1, 2012:  Happy New Year!!!!

I hope that everyone had a safe and fun New Year's eve.  All security guard operations at On Guard Security went well last night.  Their were no major incidents or trouble at any of the special events that our security guards were working.
