Dallas, Texas – Covid-19 shook the world and has shaped the way society functions in unimaginable ways. Many industries have been decimated and businesses gutted as the general public did its part to stem the tide of the deadly virus by staying home and avoiding public spaces.
The entertainment industry along with public events that rely on crowds to participate bore possibly the heaviest brunt of this global disaster. The effects continue to trickle down, affecting unexpected industries in devastating ways. Private security is one example of a trade that relies on events for a massive portion of its income. With no events to provide security at, many companies have been unable to stay afloat.
“It’s just… bleak,” states a former security guard who now works at a grocery store, “I know a lot of people that relied on private security gigs to support themselves. They’ve been laid off with no real hope of getting their job back. Ex-military, retired and off duty police officers… and they’re struggling to stay in their homes now, let alone pay their bills.”
One local private security company has pulled through the worst of the pandemic with relative ease. Stratton Security has been able to stay afloat thanks to its diverse array of services and its reputation in the community. Despite a lack of public events to provide security at, Stratton Security has been able to continue to serve its existing clients as well as drum up new business.
“It’s thanks to the incredible reputation of our security guards, our loyal clients who recommend us, and a little bit of luck – since a shocking number of our new customers found us by searching ‘security guard companies near me.’ We’re so very grateful for how well we’ve done during this time,” stated a company representative when asked about how they’ve fared during the pandemic.
The Stratton Security representative went on to explain that their company is a family, and they know how lucky they are that they’ve been able to keep their guards employed. Stratton Security has been picking up more events now that Covid restrictions are lifting and continues to provide security to many locations such as apartment complexes, businesses, and campuses.
