Community Security Guards

The gated communities within Chicago Il are some of the most enviable in the nation. Homeowners that reside in these areas do so for the privacy and security that they provide. Staffing your gate with professional, competent, and reliable security officers that are experienced at providing security services to these types of communities is a must. Metro Security Force, Inc. takes pride in its experience with these types of areas. Services that we can provide include, but are not limited to:

* Resident and visitor screening and logging

* 24-hour dispatch services for residents

* Assigned supervisor(s) to your account

* Detailed written reports.

We understands that these types of communities do not only require the most skilled personnel, but, because of the high level of public interaction that comes with the job, they require security officers that are proficient in providing excellence in customer service. You simply cannot afford to hire a security service company as your gatekeeper that lacks an understanding of these basic principles and skills. With Metro Security, Inc., however, you will be hiring a company that clearly understands and embodies those principles and skills that you expect.

Industrial Security Force Services

Our goal is to supply all clients with the highest quality security force services available. We practice strict procedures in the selection of security personnel. Each employee undergoes a thorough background investigation conducted by our trained staff. Recruitment of our personnel is tailored to the specific post that the officer is to be assigned, thus assuring the best possible match of security officer to customer needs.

Commercial Security Guards

We’ve been providing our clients with commercial  guard services that exceed their expectations – and industry standards – for over 30 years. From nearly three decades in the contract security services industry, we are well acquainted with the unique safety and security challenges that commercial facilities often face because of valuable inventory, hazardous materials, and federal regulations. Whether your site is a plant, warehouse, manufacturing facility, or other industrial facility, our security guards have the expertise to ensure the highest standard in safety and security.

Every contract begins with a comprehensive survey and assessment of your site and current safety and security procedures. We make recommendations for the client’s commercial  guard services and work closely with management to discuss your needs, preferences, budget, and environment.

Each one of our commercial officers is screened and trained specifically for the needs and requirements of your facility. We assign security to your site who are equipped and qualified to offer professional commercial security services. At Metro Security Force, Inc., we work hard to ensure that your facility meets or exceeds industry standards.


Retail Security 

Retail shopping stores are facing increasing need for superior security. Thieves routinely fill their bags with merchandise and exit the store undetected. Meanwhile, employee theft can occur right under management’s nose. Fortunately, Metro Security Force, Inc. can provide the right plan of action to put a stop to theft and shrinkage. The need for superior retail security guards is increasing, and Metro Security Force, Inc. is equipped to handle the task.

Many retail stores count on police to handle their security  needs. While the police do an excellent job of deterring crime and catching criminals whenever possible, many retail stores require nothing short of full surveillance. Thieves are more than willing to brazenly grab merchandise during business hours, right in front of customers. Meanwhile, management must keep an eye out for employee theft going on behind the scenes. Without a strong security guard presence, situations like this can get out of control.

Metro Security Force, Inc. has been handling retail store security throughout the Chicago area. Our security guards are trained to recognize theft threats, while keeping honest customers feeling safe. In addition, retail security systems can provide ongoing surveillance of all areas, including employee only sections of the store. With security guards on duty, shoppers will feel safe, and theft will drop drastically.

Hostile Terminations  

One of the most difficult things about being a business owner is termination or laying off employees, even when you know it is necessary. If you are concerned about security and making sure everything goes safely and smoothly, we can help.

Let Metro Security Force, Inc. assist you with your next at-risk employee termination. Our team will make sure that your workplace remains fully functional. Metro Security Force, Inc. will make sure that any at-risk employees makes it safely off the property without incident.

 The danger of workplace violence is an unfortunate reality in this day and age. Whether you are terminating an employee to prevent this risk, or you fear a hostile termination may incite a problem, having trained security guards on hand is a smart precaution. Our security guards will be there to prevent a problem before it starts, and take action to keep your employees and business assets safe and secure, if your fears prove to be correct.
