The Georgia Guard Coalition was created to strengthen the security and safety efforts of its members. The goals of the Coalition are to take a high-tech collaborative approach to protecting the property and citizens of Georgia and to increase the level of training, customer service and professionalism in the private security industry.
In America, the crime clock continues to tick: one robbery every 49 seconds and one burglary every 10 seconds. Georgia, like most states, has a crime problem, particularly with robbery, burglary and theft. Residential complexes, retail centers and a variety of other public locations are vulnerable to criminal activity—even the ones patrolled by private security agencies. Crime and dangerous incidents jeopardize the safety of Georgia citizens and the profitability of Georgia businesses. To target Georgia’s crime problem effectively, security agencies across the state must work together to create a peer-watch environment in every community.
