March 23, 2011: Thanks to our guards for all of their hard work.  We are off to a great 2011.

March 19, 2011:  A report released yesterday out of Atlanta, GA shows a staggering increase of armed assaults and confrontations involving security personnel.  The majority of these assaults included weapons such as firearms and knives.  There is a large increase of violence in the loss prevention and retail security area for security guards.  Shoplifters are now becoming more violent.

An armored car guard was killed on Tuesday in Atlanta.  An armed robber shot him multiple times and stole a bag of cash.

These instances show how important training is for all security guards.  At On Guard Security,Inc. our private guards are continually training to keep their skills honed.

March 18, 2011:  Car thefts are up in Nashville.  There have been over 380 so far this year compared to 320 last year.  Police are now resorting to bait cars.  When the would be thief tries to start the car a kill switch kills the engine, rolls up the windows and locks the doors. This has been very effective in the past and police are hoping for the same results again.

March 15, 2011: The Suntrust Bank on Sam Ridley Parkway was robbed at gunpoint this morning.  The suspect is a white male weighing about 200 pounds and 5 feet 10 inches tall.  He was wearing a blue baseball cap and an apron from Kroger's.
