    Hiring Security Guards for Your Cannabis Business

    Some owners of marijuana companies and cannabis dispensaries attempt to take the process of hiring security guards for their facilities into their own hands. They place ads in local publications and attempt to conduct interviews to find security guards they can trust. What they eventually begin to realize is that the process is much more time-consuming than they anticipated. They realize they have to do background checks and try to verify that the security guard candidates have been properly trained. At Special Security Services we have the resources to expedite the process, get accurate results, and get you the quality security guards you need.

    The Importance of Security for Cannabis Grow Facilities

    Some marijuana entrepreneurs feel that they don’t need to have security guards in order to protect their grow facilities. They mistakenly believe that because they have a very limited flow of customers in their grow facilities, the chances of them being targeted by thieves and robbers is very low. Nothing can be further from the truth. Inside grow facilities is hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of untraceable marijuana products. That makes them a high-value target for thieves and robbers who can then sell it on the street. If the safety of your grow facility staff is important to you, then you should ensure you have a team of professionals protecting it.

    On-Site Security Guards a Legal Requirement

    Having specially trained, licensed security guards at your marijuana dispensary is not only the safe and sensible thing to do, it’s a legal requirement in the state. Licensed

    dispensaries are required by law to be equipped with both video surveillance cameras and on-site security guards. This helps to protect the staff and the customers and discourage thieves and robbers. Ever since marijuana dispensaries became legal, there have been criminals who have been trying to pull strong-arm robberies and thefts in them. We can provide you with the properly trained and licensed security guards that you need.

    Medical Marijuana For Sale In California

    In 2007 California’s State Board of Equalization began taxing medical marijuana and collectives and cooperatives with a Seller’s Permit could sell medical marijuana via dispensaries in California to card-holding members. However, proper security has always been of the utmost importance. A Burbank California cannabis consulting firm, The Bulbulyan Consulting Group, recommended marijuana dispensaries use very stringent background checks on employees, install security cameras, hire specially trained security guards and build close relationships with the local police to control all the robberies and thefts the dispensaries would inevitably face.

    Recommendations Not Law

    While they were good recommendations, they did not have to power of state law. So business owners were free to decide which of those practices they would use to protect their assets and their customers. As the number of California marijuana dispensaries that have fallen victim to thieves and robbers has continued to rise, it has become clear that the ones that made the investment in private security guards were less likely to be hit by criminals. Adding security guards is a valuable addition to the safety and reputation of the stores. State law dictates that during operation hours security guards be at every entrance and exit.

    Choose The Right Guards

    As a cannabis business owner, choosing the right source of security guards is crucial. The cannabis business is largely a cash-based business. This attracts the interest of many thieves and robbers. We are a security guard company that understands your unique needs and can provide the exact services you need. Other security companies often take an approach to marijuana-based business security that doesn’t reflect the unique issues marijuana businesses face. That’s why you should choose Special Security Services if you want the fastest, safest, and most effective way to protect your staff, customers as well as your marijuana assets.
