- Frequently Asked Questions -


Manned guarding is the deployment of security guards on site to maintain a physical security presence, wherein they will safeguard the property and the people within. It acts as a deterrent to criminal activity, and as an immediate response to security breaches.

It’s a proactive measure that can prevent crime from happening, as would-be thieves, trespassers, and vandals are going to think twice about targeting a site that has security guards manning the area.

Manned security guards have the primary duties of protecting your property, building staff, and members of the public if they are within the premises. They perform such duties by maintaining a physical presence on site, watching over their designated areas with keen attention.

Security officers that guard your property can also respond to emergencies quickly, such as escorting troublemakers and uninvited visitors out of the premises discreetly, and detaining individuals who may have committed crimes on your property to then hand over to law enforcement.

In peaceful situations, security guards on site can also provide assistance to guests, and serve as a reassuring presence to your organisation.


CCTV is useful for monitoring, deterring, and recording suspicious behaviour on your property. However, surveillance cameras alone can’t stop determined individuals from gaining unauthorised access to your property and committing all sorts of crimes. You need manned guarding if you want the protective layer of professional security officers being able to instantly respond to unwanted and illegal activity.

Security guards are an imposing presence to troublemakers and criminals. With manned guards, would-be thieves or vandals can be stopped and prevented from escaping the premises.


It all depends on what kind of property you need protection for. A commercial area will have different security needs compared to a residential area, which will be different from what a warehouse or a corporate office would need for security. There’s also the question of whether or not your property is occupied or vacant.

Taybar Security can answer this question directly for you when you partner with us. We will liaise with you to get a clear picture of what you need for on-site security, and provide the right type of manned guarding services that fit your specifications.

An alarm system is a reactive measure to security issues. Its primary use is to signal to staff and police officers that a crime, such as unauthorised access or theft, is taking place or has already been committed on your property. It alone can’t prevent crimes from happening, not to mention the cost of damaged property and lost business. With manned guarding, you can stop criminals on their tracks and prevent property damage, theft, and vandalism. Manned security guards act as a great deterrent to opportunists. You can also rely on security personnel on site to respond immediately to natural and man-made disasters, such as floods and fires.
