Short-term security is in demand by organizations with an established security presence who require extra services for a limited time. Additionally, those who do not have a permanent security solution often require qualified officers for temporary, emergency or last-minute needs. Temporary security is implemented during high profile or traffic events, busy holiday seasons in the retail sector, and during organizational changes. Uniformed temporary officers may be utilized during threats or in response to a disaster.
Whatever the reason temporary security is required, one constant is the need for these security officers to be experienced, prepared and well-trained. The length of the assignment should never be indicative of the level of quality needed.
Whether the need for temporary security services is known, anticipated or just a possibility, you need to plan now. Advanced planning will allow you to respond quickly with the right answer when the need arises.
Once you’ve identified a need for temporary security, a failure to staff it appropriately creates vulnerability.
