Security Guard Insurance

Coverage that safeguards you while you protect others.

Security Guard Insurance customized for your business needs

Security guards are in a profession that puts them in harm's way on a regular basis. And because of the increased risks facing security guards, specialized insurance coverage is a must. From safeguarding the people and property they are hired to protect to the guards and company itself, a security guard insurance policy needs coverage options that live up to the risks.

While some might argue it’s an unnecessary expense, security guard insurance is actually an invaluable asset. It’s not just about guarding against physical harm; it’s also about financial protection.

Ollis/Akers/Arney understands the unique risks security professionals face. They’re committed to finding insurance solutions that offer comprehensive coverage, ensuring guards, clients, and property are adequately protected.

It’s not a luxury, it’s a necessity.

Risk and Coverage

Given the heightened risks security guards face, it’s vital they’re adequately covered by specialized insurance policies. These policies need to consider potential issues like assault and battery lawsuits, failure to perform duties, and false arrests. Such policies must be comprehensive, incorporating professional liability insurance to address inaccuracies in reporting and general liability insurance to cover property damage due to negligence.

Additionally, business auto insurance is necessary for guards operating company vehicles. The level of coverage required hinges on the specific services provided. For instance, event security may necessitate more coverage than patrolling a vacant property.

The right insurance not only protects guards but also their clients and property. It ensures a shield against the unpredictable nature of their job.

Insurance for Companies

Regardless of their size, all companies offering protective services need to ensure they’ve got the right level of coverage to match the risks involved.

It’s crucial that each policy is tailored to the unique needs of the security guard industry. For instance, a business owner’s insurance policy (BOP) combines property and liability coverage, providing a safety net for potential damages.

Workers’ compensation is essential to cover injuries on the job, protecting both the company and its employees.

Cyber liability insurance is becoming increasingly important to guard against data breaches.

The specific coverage required depends heavily on the type of security services provided.

It’s clear that understanding these various insurance policies and their implications is vital for any security company’s risk management strategy.
