Security ServicesArmed Security Service

Armed security serviceArmed security today is turning from a "fashion trend" into a recognized necessity when it comes to protecting human life. Such services cannot be provided by amateurs, but exclusively professionally trained people. In many cases armed guards are the only way to ensure the required level of security for people, material and intangible values.



Unfortunately, in the world there are enough examples of alarming news about the use of weapons against civilians, starting with the taking of hostages in different countries, and ending with the attack of the Norwegian Breivik on a youth camp (67 people died), and the murder of the mayor of Gdansk. This is the recent stabbing in Würzburg, Germany, when one inadequate man with a knife in his hands took the lives of three residents of the city.

The TOPGUARD security company is convinced that if, for example, on the island of Uteye, where Anders Breivik killed his victims, there was at least one guard with a weapon, then the death toll would be minimal, or even tragedy would have been avoided altogether. We can say for sure that the mayor of Gdansk would have survived if an armed guard with a good reaction had stood behind the scenes. The same can be said about the case in Germany - one person with a weapon in the path of a criminal, and the crime would have been avoided. Although the presence of a weapon is a serious factor, it is not always decisive - the weapon itself does not fire. And therefore, here you need the necessary skills in using this weapon.

Considering the fact that the TOPGUARD company is engaged in systematic professional training of bodyguards and a large number of people who wield weapons pass through our training ground, we can assert that success and effectiveness in protecting human life is achieved only through systemic training (ссылка на «обучение телохранителей»). In addition, the TOPGUARD company conducts trainings on self-defense with weapons for civilians. If you want to purchase or have already purchased a weapon for self-defense and want to learn how to use it, both at home and on the street, in the car, just indoors, then you can take a short but intensive and effective course on using this weapon.


What is an armed guard for?

Let's start with the fact that armed guards, be they Kiev, Odessa, Kharkov or any other city in Ukraine, are not cheap services. It is essential when it comes to protecting people's lives. Also, armed guards are also needed when protecting critical infrastructure facilities, the violation of which may entail negative consequences or casualties among people. For example, such facilities can be nuclear power plants, chemical plants, gas and water distribution stations, oil storage facilities, etc.

Such protection is also used during mass events, in places that have a high chance of becoming a target for terrorist attacks.

In addition, armed guards are used when escorting valuable goods, which can be a "tasty morsel" for all sorts of criminal organizations. But in this case, the ultimate goal of theft, for the most part, is to threaten people.

Well, and of course, the transportation of money, securities, jewelry and expensive antiques, which are always interested to intruders, is not complete without armed guards.


Who Provides Armed Security In Ukraine

The first category is the special services of Ukraine - the departments that protect senior officials.

The second category is the commercial units of the Ministry of the Interior, such as Titan.

The third category is private security companies that have the appropriate licenses, capacity, skills and experience.

Let's take a look at all three categories.

With the first category of the state security service for the first persons of the state, everything is more or less clear - large teams of security guards work to ensure their safety and the safety of their family members, whose work is paid by the taxpayers. As a rule, people in such teams are well motivated, trained, equipped and have the opportunity to use various types of weapons and special equipment in their work.

The second category is the "commercial" police, which have rifled firearms and a "Police Law" that allows them to use them under strictly defined conditions. Lack of systemic training, low motivation, traditional type of weapons (usually PM or Stechkin) and traditionally small ammunition do not allow to fully perform tasks to ensure the safety of one or several people.

The third type is private security structures. There are not many who can fulfill the tasks of armed protection of a person. Private security structures, unlike the police, do not have the right to work with short-barreled rifled weapon, but nevertheless they have a wider range of others permitted by law.

These are traumatic pistols, both domestic and foreign, which are used at a distance of 5-10 m, albeit with dubious effectiveness.

12 gauge smoothbore weapons - 5-50 m with a wide range of ammunition, starting with a rubber bullet and ending with buckshot. (Semi-automatic carbines of Turkish, Italian and American production, which are used by special forces for combat in urban environments).

Also, the "private traders" have a rifled weapon with a diameter of 5.45 mm, which works at longer distances. These are "AR15", AK, Steyr AUG. (Similar samples are in service with the employees of the TOPGUARD company). It is impossible to use such a weapon in the city, in the "cement" of defense, but in some moments, when it comes to distances of 100-300 m, it is relevant. For example, in the TOPGUARD company, the power groups of bodyguards or groups of escorting valuable goods are trained to use them.

By the way, in Israel, every educational institution, be it a kindergarten, school, college or university, is guarded no worse than a police station or buildings of state departments (ministries). There is a private armed guard, which provides full multi-level access control, security of the perimeter of the establishment, etc. Israel shows the absolute effectiveness of this approach.

In developed countries, the protection of critical infrastructure facilities is also entrusted to private security companies, and the work of the army and police is reduced to responding to terrorist attacks, massive threats, etc. It is worth noting that even in army formations, employees of private security companies are used to protect bases, transport goods, soldiers and important army officials. And this is because private security companies are more professional and motivated in performing such work, and therefore show the best efficiency.


Technical Component

The second important part of the armed protection of objects is technical equipment. This is access control to the territory, and video surveillance, and alarm systems. Thus, a special division of TOPGUARD will inspect the protected object and propose an optimal scheme for ensuring its security: what equipment, where and how to install, in order to be able to control the situation even from your smartphone or any other mobile gadget.

Armed security serviceIf you have chosen armed guards, then this means that you have good reasons for this. Therefore, the choice must be deliberate and thoughtful. That is, the company that you choose for these purposes must have a license to provide such services, an excellent reputation, good potential, relevant experience and employees with the necessary skills. All this differs from the others TOPGUARD security company.

And among the services provided by the company, in addition to power escort groups and bodyguards, there is also the provision of armored vehicles, trained drivers. In addition, you can use the "clear sky" service, when not only ground transport, but also air transport - helicopters are used for protection, which will significantly secure and speed up your movement from point A to point B.

It is very important to remember that armed security services are special services that require increased attention from the business owner. At the same time, it is the most reliable personal security, which is guaranteed to ensure the safety of the facility, you and your employees.
