Small Company, Big Security

A small business doesn’t mean less security. Organizations of all sizes remain susceptible to safety hazards. Investing in security measures should always remain a priority for companies working to create a comfortable and secure environment. According to John Vasquez, small businesses are often worried about investing too much of their resources into safety rather than their business. “Sometimes, they just roll the dice and hope nothing happens,” Vasquez said.  “Rolling the dice” when it comes to securing your work environment [...]

How Healthcare Security Positively Impacts Patients

Eagle Systems Security believes that maintaining a safe environment for patients directly reflects compassion and respect for visitors. Safety plays a large role in overall healthcare effectiveness by providing visitors a comfortable environment where their personal safety is not on their list of worries.  Ensuring patient satisfaction primarily begins with the patient’s surrounding environment. Hospitals and other healthcare buildings can be known for uncomfortable atmospheres, which directly correspond to patients feeling hesitant and in distress. We understand the feeling of [...]

Austin, Texas Homeless Ordinance Sparks Controversy

Beginning in June of 2019, a new ordinance impacting the homeless population in Austin, Texas was enacted. Homeless individuals are now permitted to camp on Austin streets, and officers only have the ability to issue a ticket if people are blocking pathways, preventing public health or posing as a safety hazard. Additionally, the city deemed it legal for the homeless population to panhandle, unless the individual is acting in an aggressive manner.  These new ordinances raised controversy within Austin’s city [...]

Our officers’ commitment to professional security is unwavering, but duties at healthcare and corporate office sites differ from one another. These opposing environments in which our officers work uncover a highly recognizable difference between commercial and healthcare security.  When in a commercial setting, officers are trained to focus on the security of the perimeter, protecting the building, [...]

Preparing for the Devastating Reality of Active Shooters

According to the Justice Department, a mass killing is defined as three or more killings in one, single episode. As most are aware, this month our country faced two horrific incidents, bringing the number of mass shootings in 2019 alone to 32. While we refuse to let this reality become a societal norm, there’s no ignoring the fact that we, as members of the public, cannot control every action and decision made by others.  In response to these deadly occurrences, [...]
