GSI’s New Partnership At Lakeside Villas
We are excited to announce that Guard-Systems, Inc. has been awarded the security contract for Lakeside Villas, a 240-unit townhome development located in Culver City.
Since Monday, June 4th, GSI has been securing the gated entrance and providing 24-hour security for the Lakeside Villas community. A resort-style development, the grounds contain several running streams, a man-made lake, large shade trees, three swimming pools, a jacuzzi, a clubhouse, saunas, and an exercise room.
The serene surroundings and community amenities present unique security challenges. Our job is to ensure the safety and protection of residents, staff and property. We work with hundreds of communities and each is unique that is why we develop a custom plan for each community and provide customized training so that our officers can exceed the expectations of the homeowners and management.
To effectively enhance the communities image, officers need more than the basic state-mandated training. Customized, site-specific training helps officers to understand how personnel should represent the brand while interacting with residents, visitors, employees and others.
We have found that the communities we serve benefit greatly from advanced training because properly trained officers leave favorable impressions on the people they interact with. This can help managers and HOA’s to improve relations with homeowners.
It can also serve to protect property values because the reality of today’s digital age is that one poorly handled incident can be easily captured on video and can result in liabilities and tremendous damage to a community’s image.
At GSI, we consult with management teams and the board to customize a training curriculum that is designed to give on-site security personnel the understanding they need to work in-line with what everyone is striving to achieve within a specific community.
These are accredited training courses that cover various roles and duties of professional security personnel. Trainings feature scenario-based interactions and videos that are in accordance with the officer’s day-to-day responsibilities. Completing these courses are a requirement and officers are tested on their understanding and retention.
Our goal is to ensure that Lakeside Village Condominiums continues to be a great place to live and contribute toward efforts to make it even better.
