What Is a Uniformed Security Guard?

Often, security personnel are thought of as either hulking bouncers or loafing desk-dwellers. At DK Security, a uniformed security guard is much more. Our staff undergoes extensive training not only to be prepared for guarding-related issues but also to provide what we call “hospitality security.” Our employees are often the first point of contact for visitors, making customer service a crucial part of a DK officer’s job.

A DK Security guard monitors your space, addresses security threats, responds to medical emergencies, and regularly gives visitors a warm first impression of your organization. It’s essential that each of our security guards be professional, friendly, and committed to providing you with the highest-quality service possible.

The main responsibility of a security guard is to protect your people and property from potential security threats. For guards trained and deployed by DK Security, this involves monitoring access control, patrolling perimeters, responding to both security-related and medical emergencies, and more.

Access Control

Hire a uniformed security guard to control access to parking lots, buildings, and other restricted or unrestricted areas of client property.


A uniformed security guard will regularly travel through and inspect client-managed areas and perimeters, either by foot or vehicle.

HonorLine Call Person


Your uniformed security guard can monitor security cameras, alarms, and other client security equipment for suspicious activity and potential threats.


A uniformed security guard is responsible for maintaining detailed security logs and reports, as well as communicating suspicious activity or incidents to clients and/or relevant authorities.

Benefits of Hiring Uniformed Security Officers

Uniformed Security Icon


A recognizable uniform makes it easier for security guards to enforce rules and regulations (i.e., client policies, local laws) from a position of authority. 

Protection from theft and vandalism is also the responsibility of security personnel and may be especially valuable for organizations with few or no regular visitors. At construction sites, for example, as much as $300 million to $1 billion in equipment and materials is stolen annually. At warehouses, remote facilities, and more, security guards help decrease theft and lead to more money and assets saved.

Rapid Response

Uniformed security guards remain alert and respond promptly to emergencies and security threats of any kind. Besides discouraging potential criminals, a security officer is easily identified by anyone seeking information or help during an emergency.

Professionalism Icon


When a visitor sees a uniformed security guard on duty, they see you’re in control of the space and care about the safety and protection of the people who enter it. Uniformed security guards are trained to provide friendly customer service, assisting with questions and concerns for all workplace visitors, employees, and clients.

Why Us

Why Choose DK Security?

Established in 1995 by two highly credentialed leaders in federal law enforcement, DK Security is Michigan’s largest local security guard company and one of the 50 largest security companies in the United States. Additionally, we are proud to be a WBENC-certified woman-owned and woman-led organization, and were ranked by Crain’s Detroit Business as the 19th largest woman-owned company in Michigan (2023).

DK Security was founded on the conviction that security companies should be timely, communicative, and provide the highest quality of services—which the global security companies regularly fail at. That guarantee continues today; we provide locally involved management teams, an emphasis on hospitality security, and a dedicated in-house recruitment team for all uniformed security clients.
