OUR HIGHLY TRAINED CERTIFIED ARMED PROTECTION OFFICERS
REDUCE LAW ENFORCEMENT VISITS
REDUCE ARRESTS AND/OR CITATIONS
The front line of any club's defense in reducing the amount of undesirable patrons depends on how the door is being worked. It's not enough that you know how to check for valid IDs. Hosting the door requires a certain skill of not only being people friendly but being aware of the patron's demeanor and attitude as they approach you. We have that certain skill; we are your club's best defense.
Whether it's a hand held metal detector or a portable walk-through metal detector, we have a solution to fit any budget. Ask us about how easily and affordably we can provide metal detectors to help minimize the problem of patrons bringing guns or knives into a club to settle disputes. Additionally, we can conduct "Pat Down Searches", and inspections of all female patron purses and hand bags.
The difference between a bouncer and a trained security professional under South Carolina Law only SLED certified security officers have the same powers of arrest given to deputy sheriffs on the properties that they are employed to protect.
APS officers are trained in the USE of FORCE CONTINUUM (use only that force necessary to gain control). Having this training greatly reduces incidents of excessive force that can lead to litigation, arrests and/or citations. Often, problems may happen because a nightclub's security personnel aren't in any kind of uniform and are dressed in street clothes. The mere presence of our highly visible uniformed armed protection officer is often enough to stop a crime in progress or prevent future crimes.
Our protection officers give the club owner regular reports of incidents and accidents that might have occurred in the club or on the property. Having these detailed reports of activity on your property can limit liability and reduce frivolous litigation.
