While most of us are working remotely, socially distancing when running errands, or encountering neighbours on the street, security officers continue to show up for work, often commuting by public transportation to perform their shifts and then returning home.
There’s no doubt about it. The last 9 months have seen an increase in the number of security guards in our communities. They’ve worked in the education, public, and healthcare sectors, and are a valuable asset in supporting public events.
In the security industry, technology is moving at lightspeed. New devices, automation, custom software, and robot and drone technology is constantly being developed, improved upon, and employed to help security guards perform routine tasks.

This month we sat down with TrackTik Client Success Manager Sarah Evans to talk about what a day in the life of a CSM looks like, how her job has changed during the pandemic and what makes her proud to be part of the TrackTik team.
While the rapid growth of the private security industry is generally thought to be a twentieth-century phenomenon, the emergence of private and public policing might well be traced back to the UK of the 18th century. It’s 1730 and a pint of gin is cheaper than a pint of beer.
With private security companies and their teams of security officers being called upon to provide additional security and support to assist law enforcement, the security industry is quickly pivoting from planning and prevention to response.
One thing is crystal clear: we all need mentors. From helping us make difficult business decisions to providing on-the-spot advice to shaping the trajectory of our careers, we can learn valuable lessons from our mentors.
