Chicago Based Security Guard Company
The Guardian Group (TGG), a trusted Chicago-based security guard company, offers you fully trained and certified armed and unarmed security guards to provide a more specialized service designed to meet your security needs. Whatever your situation may be, we will tailor our security guard services to provide you with the necessary protection.
The keys to developing and providing our clients the finest security guards include a straightforward, no-nonsense focus on the following:
Recruiting, Screening & Hiring. There is nothing more important! Creative and innovative recruiting practices are tempered by stringent screening measures that include a comprehensive employment application, a 2-phase interview process, criminal background and credit history checks, reference checks and motor vehicle screening. For those who pass, random drug testing may also be performed depending on state law and client requirements.
Training. TGG provides security guard’s with a 40+ hour competitive curriculum that exceeds the training requirements for security personnel in any state and includes group training designed to identify and weed out those who may have passed initial screening but do not meet our performance standards before they are assigned to a post. Our security guards are also trained in First Aid, CPR and AED.
Professional Appearance & Demeanor. Security officers representing TGG will be clean shaven and appear in a clean, pressed uniform on site, and will be on time, remain standing in an alert-awake-ready position, refrain from socializing or talking on a cellular phone while on duty, and otherwise conduct themselves in a professional manner that comports with client expectations.
Effective Communication. Effective verbal and written communication is essential for security guards who not only come into contact with our client’s employees, but in many cases are in contact with our client’s customers, may need to assist law enforcement in the event of an incident or emergency, or be approached by the news media. TGG training includes specific instruction on how to communicate appropriately and professionally, or in some cases politely refrain from communicating with, those they may come into contact with on site. We also train on basic written functions such as writing daily activity reports and incident reports.
