It’s common for many office building, shopping centers, strip malls, and stadium management teams to think that hiring a security guard for the lobby entrance and the parking garage is an effective security plan. They couldn’t be more wrong.
Many of these guards are usually under trained and some even spend their whole days sitting in the lobby and reading the latest best selling novels.
