The homeowner quickly retrieved a nearby firearm and fired two shots into the floor. The burglars dropped his IPad and fled. The burglars still escaped with the man's lock box and a laptop. This story is great to see in the news. A homeowner with a firearm was able to protect himself and his property. The best part is that no one was hurt. The homeowner fired his gun into the floor and scared them off. The number of stories that the news reports where someone used a firearm in a positive way are far outnumbered by stories of people using them in the wrong way.

Halloween is right around the corner (Thanksgiving and Christmas, too). Private security guards are utilized in a variety of different ways at Halloween parties. Keeping the peace at the gathering, access control, and restricting alcoholic beverages from leaving the party are just a few ways that our clients have used our security officers.

Anyone that is considering using a contract security guard service at this year's Halloween party should begin finding the right contract security guard company immediately. (You are on the right website. This is a great place to start.) Selecting the right company and making arrangements as much in advance as possible gives the contract security guard company more time to get the most appropriate security guard for your party.
