2015 continues to be both busy and exciting here at Trust Security Services, one of the leading security companies in DC. In addition to providing security guard services to our existing clients, we also welcomed many new clients into our protective fold this year. As always, we want all of our clients, both new and established, to know that their safety and security are always our top priority.
Now to update you on some of what has been happening since our last post.
The Avon Walk for the Cure Event – Security Services Supplied By Trust Security
For the second year in a row, we were honored to receive the contract to provide uniformed security guard services for a great cause, the Avon Walk for the Cure event in Washington, D.C. This year’s 2 day event was held on April 30 and May 1, and raised funds that will help to fight cancer and work towards a cure for this deadly disease.
Some of the beneficiaries of the funds raised by this year’s event include John Hopkins University – Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, Food and Friends, Georgetown University and many others. We are proud to have been a small part of this great event and hope that a cure for cancer will soon be found.
Guarding an Event is Not for the Novice
Security services for events of this magnitude should never be handled by temp agencies and guards who are not fully trained and experienced in this type of work. For the Avon Walk for the Cure Event, Trust Security’s professionally trained guards handled a variety of sensitive duties designed to maintain high levels of safety and security. Some of the ways in which we were able to help included:
- patrolling equipment staging locations in the Alexandria, VA area, much of which required overnight services
- servicing ceremony locations around the clock on the National Mall at Washington, D.C.
- providing access control
- random and targeted foot patrols
- providing general crowd control
Our guards are trained to notice suspicious individuals, activities and objects, even in crowded settings where the movement of the crowd and the event participants can make it easy for criminals to blend in. As we often say, “Trust, but verify” to stay safe and secure, and we practice what we preach.
Proud to Offer Many Different Options
Although we thoroughly enjoy providing security for large events like the 2015 Avon Walk for the Cure, Trust Security can handle all your security service needs, both large and small. As a security guard company in Maryland that services the entire Washington DC metropolitan area including Northern VA, we can assist you with both long and short-term security needs, as well as emergency firewatch services.
At Trust Security, we capitalize on our guard’s strengths and skills and evaluate them constantly so that we can match each guard with the client who can best utilize these strengths. In addition, each client has the added benefit of working with their own account manager, for an improved level of communication and responsiveness.
Watch for our next post, where we will provide even more insight into the security business, and until then, Trust Security Services is here for you!
