Sometimes business managers require a security officer, because they are laying off employees or threats have been made by a previous employee. It is important to describe the situation to an experienced security professional and to listen to his recommendation. It might not be necessarily advisable to hire an armed security guard if there is no history of violence or threats of violence have not been made. Hiring an armed security just in case sends the wrong message to existing employees and might create problems where there are none.
It is extremely important to share all aspects of the situation with the security consultant. In some cases it is highly advisable to hire an armed security guard. If there has been a history of violence or if there are substantiated threats the security guard must be armed. For example if a laid off employee threatens to bring a gun and shoot someone the security guard should be armed and able to interject. A good security company will let clients talk to an experienced security consultant. As long as the client shares all information the security consultant will be able to make a recommendation if the security guard should be armed or unarmed.
