Providing a wide range of tailored solutions to fit your security needs.

Tacoma Security Guards

If you own or manage a business or public space here in Tacoma, you know that safety is always a top priority. Whether your location is a retail store, an office, a school, or a public place, you want to be assured that your personnel, your customers, and the general public will be safe on your premises.

This is why in order to make sure that peace and order is maintained and there’s someone to protect you in any given situation, hiring a security guard is essential.

Having a security guard at any establishment gives an added layer of protection to the people within the premises. At Oatridge Security, our guards are trained to handle every pressing situation they might encounter while on the job, so you know you’re in good hands when they’re around.

Security Officer Tacoma

When you think of a security guard, what comes to mind? Most people probably envision someone in uniform, patrolling the premises and providing a visible presence to deter criminal activity. While that is certainly one aspect of being a security officer, there are many other duties and responsibilities that come with the job.

At Oatridge Security Group, our Tacoma security guards are trained and equipped to handle a wide range of tasks, including but not limited to:

  • Patrolling the premises: This may include foot or vehicle patrols around the perimeter of your property.
  • Monitoring surveillance systems: Our guards are skilled in using various surveillance equipment such as cameras, alarms, and motion sensors to detect any suspicious activity.
  • Access control: They are responsible for monitoring who enters and exits the premises and ensuring that only authorized individuals have access.
  • Responding to emergencies: In case of an emergency, our guards are trained to respond quickly and efficiently, providing first aid or calling for backup when needed.
  • Customer service: Our guards are not just there for security purposes; they also provide friendly customer service to anyone who needs assistance or directions within the premises.

While many people may think of security guards as being hired for commercial properties, Oatridge Security Group also offers private security services in Tacoma. This includes providing personal bodyguards or executive protection for individuals who may need it.

Our private security team is highly trained and experienced in protecting high-profile clients, celebrities, executives, and other individuals who may require additional security measures.
