Keeping Hotels Safe For A Stress Free Vacation

Vacation! Vacation! The one word that brings joy to everyone. When booking a vacation, the
most important factors are: where is your destination and where are you to stay. Once you figure
out your desired destination, it's all about booking accommodations. When looking for a hotel, of
course, we all want an accessible, comfy and exciting place to stay. You search Expedia, Red
Tags and Trivago for the best of the best, but wait... you might be forgetting something.
We all want to stay safe, especially in a place you aren't familiar with. A hotel/resort should feel like
your home, a safe place to stay for the duration of your vacation. It is important that wherever
you stay, it is equipped with the best security possible.

Here are the Hotel/Resort/Commercial buildings services, Harkav Security provides to keep you safe during your next hotel stay.

On site patrol: One of the most important things is having a security guard on site at your hotel,
watching over any movements and disturbances. Security guards act as immediate protection,
providing the ability to stop an unwanted situation from happening. Security guards also look out
for any signs of a criminal on the premise, alerting the hotel staff. Harkav Security guards work
intensely at scoping out the premise and providing reassurance of safety to guests.

Quick response to alarms: Of course, we expect modern day hotels to be equipped with the most up to date security systems. These alarm systems can deter a criminal from continuing with their crime, as the alarm may scare them away. These alarms also bring a situation to the officer on patrol's attention,
making it more likely for them to catch the criminal in action. Harkav Security guards provide an
immediate response to these alarms. They are highly trained in rapid response and how to handle
catching possible criminals.

Review of security procedures and property equipment: With procedures being updated and equipment being changed regularly, it's important that the security staff is kept up to date. The updates ensure that procedures, and usage of the equipment run smoothly, allowing the security to do a better job at keeping guests safe. Harkav Security guards make sure that they are regularly checking in with hotel management and staff, on anything that may have been changed. This allows them to familiarize themselves with the changes as well as any changes that they may have to do within their own approaches.

Training for staff management: Not only is it important to have security guards that are well trained, but also staff management.
When all members of a hotel are equipped with the proper knowledge and guidance, safety is at
its very highest. Harkav security provides training for the staff management, allowing them to be
on the same page as the security. This then ensures safety of the employees and of course, the
guests. Harkav Security will regularly update the staff on any changes that have been made.

24/7 working dispatch centre: Having extra hands on deck is always helpful. In situations where the onsite security may not be enough, it is important to have extra security nearby, who respond quickly and effectively. This alleviates the stress of everyone on the premise, and allows for an easier handling of the situation. The Harkav Security team has a team of guards working 24/7, who are ready to help
assist in situations if needed. Hotel staff do not have to worry as this team of guards are well
prepared and equipped to handle all situations.

Mobile patrols for business plazas or shopping malls

Parking garages at malls are known for being dark, quiet, and quite scary at times. Workers are
prepped on how to stay safe after a shift, and customers are told to be aware of their
surroundings. Robberies are likely to happen as it is often difficult to see a criminal in the sea of
cars. Many individuals keep important information, as well as money and merchandise in their
vehicles whilst in the mall. If this is stolen, it can put a huge straint on the individual.
In order to combat these crimes, Harkav Security offers Mobile patrol services, put in place to
stop criminals, and prevent further loss.

Here is how we can help

On patrol duty: One of the best ways to stop criminals is by simply stopping them in their
tracks. Our security guards patrol different areas of the parking garage, and are kept on lookout
for any suspicious activity. If a guard does notice a suspicious individual, and or circumstance,
they will approach it in an appropriate way. Our security guards are highly trained in how to
approach these situations and de-escalate any heightened interactions that may occur.

Responding to Alerts: Many parking garages are now equipped with the latest security
equipment. This is extremely important as it detects and alerts the security guards on any
suspicious activity and situations. Harkav Security guards will respond in a quick manner in
order to catch any criminal. Responding quickly is essential in not only catching a criminal, but
preventing worse outcomes.

Unscheduled Patrol: Criminals are smart, they often scope out an area before making their
move. They will often keep tabs on what time the security arrives and what time they leave. This
gives them the opportunity to commit their crimes when no one is around, making it more likely
for them to get away. Unscheduled patrol does the complete opposite of that, making it
impossible for a criminal to know when they are being watched. Security guards will be in and
out of the premises, various times a day, different each day. In this way, there is no schedule that
the criminal can follow. This will then deter the criminal from committing a crime.

Keeping check of opening and closing times: It is important that parking garages are open when they
need to be, and closed when they need to be. Malls have strict rules on when a parking garage is
allowed to be open. These rules keep individuals with ill intentions, from entering when they are
not supposed to be. If a parking garage is not closed when it is set too, a criminal has a higher
chance of getting away with a crime as it is unlikely that anyone will be there to catch them.
Harkav Security guards will ensure that the garage is open and closed at the set time, and that
there is no possible way of anyone entering unauthorized.

Back to School? Reach your security partner to ensure COVID safety!

Recently, with the spike in COVID cases across Ontario, schools have been forced to close once
again. The virus continues to spread, and does not discriminate. More students and teachers are
being infected with the novel coronavirus, as well as other variants. Eventually, when schools do
re-open, not only will students be entering the schools, but so will COVID.
Students, especially younger kids who may not know the seriousness of Covid, may possibly
forget to wear a mask, or wear one incorrectly. This can become a serious problem and lead to
spreading if not handled before entering the school. Currently, it is the responsibility of the
school staff to ensure proper wear of masks, however, it is unfair to expect staff to overlook
covid regulations whilst preparing for a day of classes. When students do return to school, more
precautions may be required, and so will more hands.

Harkav Security offers pandemic response services that will help to prevent the spread of Covid
in the schools, as well alleviate the stress from the school staff.

How we can help:
Human temperature screening: Before entering the building, it is important that students do
not have one of the classical Covid symptoms, a fever. By recognizing students who do have a
fever and alerting the school, this reduces the possible spread of the virus. Harkav Security
guards offer human temperature screening and can quickly and effectively screen students at the
door. Multiple guards may be on site to ensure quick and efficient screening, ensuring no student
is missed and the school is protected.

Ground Patrols: As noticed, many younger students, as well as highschoolers may not wear their mask
properly, or at all. Of course, they are excited to be back in school and see their friends, causing
them to forget about their mask. A mask is one of the most essential fighters in battling Covid.
Harkav Security guards offer patrol services to ensure that any student with no mask or an
improper mask is dealt with appropriately and immediately Dealing with students may be
difficult at times, but our security guards are highly trained in de escalating situations that may
become out of control.

Ensure Social distancing: When students are at lunch or a break, it is not uncommon for them to want
to hang out with their friends. It is important that although they are wearing their masks, they are
also social distancing. Harkav Security guards will patrol the social areas and ensure that
students are keeping their distance. Any students who may not be doing so, will be gently
reminded of the regulations.

New Cannabis Retail Industry, More Security

With the legalization of cannabis in 2018, cannabis shops have been popping up rapidly. There is
a growing number of customers eager to purchase cannabis, as well as an eager number of
thieves ready to steal cannabis. Store employees need to be on the lookout for possible thieves,
as it can not only damage their business financially, but it can become a dangerous situation
quickly.

How Harkav Security help clients ensure the safety and security at Cannabis Stores?
At Harkav Security, our guards are highly trained and given extensive knowledge on how to deal
with high theft situations like cannabis. Our services include:
Surveillance cameras: Harkav Security can provide and monitor surveillance cameras. This
ensures that the entire store area is covered, and no one can sneak the product into a bag or
pocket. In this case, cameras are not hidden, but rather easily visible. This is a tactic used to deter
thieves from attempting to steal.
24/7 patrol:Having the store patrolled at all times is extremely necessary. When lights are out,
thieves tend to come out. During store hours it is obviously necessary to keep and eye on who is
coming in and out of the store, and what they are picking up and putting down. What is difficult
is what happens after the store is closed. Thieves will try to break into the store and steal as much
cannabis as possible. Harkav Security guards work to ensure that does not happen. With the
nature of cannabis, it is not unlikely for a thief to pull out a weapon, such as a gun. Our guards
are equipped and trained on how to deal with situations like this.
Employee theft: Unfortunately, it is often a store's very own employee who steals. This is
because they are seen as less of a suspect, and it is a lot easier for them to get their hands on
product. This can be very troubling and damaging to the store. Harkav Security works to patrol
the store, including the employees. At the end of an employees shift, a Harkav Security guard
will check the employees bag, pockets and any other openings for theft, to ensure they do not
walk out with valuable products.

Tips from Harkav Security:
* Keep cannabis secured in cabinets
* Never leave a customer alone in the store
* Always ensure an employee retrieves product for the customer
* Keep track of the inventory

Safety for your construction sites

The construction industry is rapidly growing. It is almost impossible to go on a drive, without
seeing an active construction site. With the number of buildings and homes increasing, so will
the number of burglaries.
Fortunately, Harkav Security has highly trained construction security guards that are ready to
serve and protect your construction site at any time.

Why are construction sites a hot spot for burglaries?
At any construction site, there are plenty of valuable items that are left lying around. This
includes money, electronic devices, keys, and expensive building materials. Construction sites
are notorious for people leaving in and out. It is hard to keep track of who is supposed to be
there, and who is not. A burglar has an easier time stealing from these spots as they have a higher
chance of going unnoticed. Not only that, but these sites are usually quite loud and busy, so a
burglar may not even be heard opening a door or running out.

How we can help
At Harkav Security, our guards are highly trained in construction security. We offer extensive
services to combat theft.
On site Patrolling : Our guards work on site, patrolling the area looking for any suspicious
activity as well as criminals. Our guards are highly trained and know exactly what to look for.
With their patrol, it will be easier to spot any area that has been tampered with, as well as any
traces of a theft. For any criminals that we are aware of, Harkav Security guards will keep an
eye out on the possible spots that they may be entering, hiding and leaving from.
Surveillance camera: Harkav Security offers surveillance camera services from the outside. It
may be difficult to hide a security camera on site, which would also encourage criminals to sneak
around it. By having an outside surveillance camera, Harkav Security guards are able to keep a
close eye out on any suspicious activity. The criminal will be unaware of our patrol, and
therefore it will be easier for us to catch them. Surveillance cameras also give us the ability to
see multiple angels of the site, without being present.
Record keeping: Ensuring that who goes in and out of a construction site is extremely important
in stopping potential theft. Harkav Security guards keep a check of who is allowed to be in the
site, when they enter and when they leave. Anyone that is not supposed to be on the site will be
denied upon entry.
Unscheduled patrol services: Burglars are smart, they look for as many clues and patterns as
they can get, in order to outsmart the system. Harkav Security offers unscheduled patrol that does
not follow any sort of pattern. This throws off a burglar and makes it impossible for them to
know when security will be there. This works in the hopes of deterring burglars.

A Letter of Thanks to our Security Officers

Throughout this pandemic, there has been a special group of people who have kept society up
and running. We have seen it on the news, in articles and on social media, appreciation for our
front line workers.

Who are the front line workers and what do they do?
Front line workers, typically associated with the healthcare field, are workers in the centre of
communities, providing healthcare to individuals. This includes doctors, nurses, PSW’s and
medical assistants. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the idea of the front line worker has
changed significantly. Others, such as : essential business workers (cashiers, food service
workers), cleaners, and delivery service workers , have been the ones majorly impacting the
smooth function of society during this time. These workers are faced with the tough and quite
honestly, scary job of dealing with thousands of people a day, and coming into contact with the
virus.
It is important to note that most of the front line workers are not vaccinated, and will not be
receiving the vaccine anytime soon. Putting them and their families at a greater risk.

Did we forget anyone?
Have you noticed the security guards standing outside of the grocery stores and malls? The ones
patrolling vaccine clinics?
Unfortunately, security guards have been forgotten as essential workers during this pandemic,
although they are risking their lives everyday in order to keep the community safe.
At Harkav Security, our guards have been working during all hours, in the busiest areas,
providing the utmost professional and necessary services. Our pandemic response services
include : human temperature screening, symptoms questionnaire, social distancing and
government regulation patrol and enhanced guest management. All of our services require our
guards to be in potentially close contact with the virus.
Recently, with the vaccine being administered across Canada, and many vaccine clinics opening
up, our guards have been on patrol at these sites. Hundreds of people a day, coming in and out of
the clinic creates the perfect situation for contamination. Our guards, regardless of not being
vaccinated, have put out their hardest work in order to keep everyone safe. They do not get the
notoriety like the others do, but are well deserving of it.

So to our guards,
....Thank you for providing your service during this time.
....Thank you for risking your life and your families for the protection of others .
....Thank you for taking responsibility and wearing your PPE everyday.
....Thank you for your service with a smile

How security can keep your business thriving during the pandemic

It is no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has completely destroyed many businesses. Whether it is from financial downfall or being shut down due to restrictions, businesses are struggling to make ends meet. For businesses that are allowed to be open, there are now facing issues in regard to safety. With the many restrictions that the government has imposed, it is vital that businesses follow these guidelines with extreme care, or they face their business being shut down. Many of these guidelines require there to be an extra set of eyes and hands on board, which may not always be possible. Businesses have cut down on employees, meaning that it is even more difficult to find an adequate amount of individuals to be manning each station. Fortunately, Harkav security offers extensive pandemic response services in order to help your business.

Human temperature & symptoms questionnaire screenings
Retail stores are required to provide temperature screening for customers before they enter the store. This ensures that no one with a high temperature is allowed in, preventing the possible spread of COVID-19. Many employees have been assigned to this job, however there are not enough employees to work inside the store and out. Harkav security works to take temperatures, allowing store employees to focus on their duties inside the store. Harkav security also provides symptom questionnaire screening, done at the same time as the temperature checks. Government orders require stores to ask each customer the symptoms questions, and Harkav security takes care of this, again relieving store employees from this task. Of course, not all customers will be compliant with these screenings, however, unlike store employees, Harkav Security guards are trained in how to deescalate non compliant customers, and proceed.

Hand sanitization, face masks and gloves
To go along with the screenings, the government has made it a requirement for customers to wear a mask, as well as sanitize their hands and/or wear gloves. Wearing a mask however, is one of the strictest rules being enforced, and customers can legally be turned away if they refuse to wear one. As we have seen on the news, there are many individuals who do not agree with wearing a mask. This can be a stressful situation for employees to deal with, especially if the customer is adamant on not wearing one. In Ontario, businesses can be fined for having customers not wear a mask, so the option to let them in without one is not an option. Harkav security guards are trained in how to deal with customers who refuse to follow the requirements, relieving the stress from the employees. This also maintains a healthy atmosphere within the store as the security guards will remove the noncompliant customer from the line and take care of the situation privately.

Social distancing
One of the first regulations when COVID-19 became present was social distancing. Every business must
ensure that every customer is 6 feet apart from one another. Businesses have put down labels on the
ground to ensure this, however this is not always followed. Stores can become busy and customers may
not pay attention to the signs. The government has made it clear that if a business is found not enforcing
this regulation, they will be shut down. In many cases, this is difficult to regulate as employees would
have to be walking up and down the line making sure this is being followed, as well as performing their
other duties. Harkav Security offers social distancing services which include a guard being on patrol,
ensuring all customers are six feet apart. Security guards will also ensure that the maximum amount of
customers inside the store is enforced.
Harkav security guards come well equipped, wearing the correct protective gear, ready to protect your
business.

Happy International Women's Day

Happy International Women's Day! Today is a special day for women all over the world,
celebrating the hurdles they have overcome, the inequalities that they have faced, and the
oppression that has plagued them since the beginning of history.
A little history...
Women from the beginning, have been seen as natural nurturers, this came in the form of
housewives and stay and home mothers. Their role was typically inside of the home, catering to
domestic duties. Of course, over the years, this role has greatly changed, due to the fighting
spirits that women have. Women are more than just their gendered role, they are truly whatever
they set out to be. Whether that is a doctor, teacher, engineer or entrepreneur, they have the
abilities to succeed in any path they may choose to follow. Departing from their domestic role,
women have fought to obtain jobs that were stereotypically male. Although they still face gender
bias in the workplace, more and more women are filling the seats that were once taken by males.
What women bring to the workplace
With women working in almost every sector nowadays, there has been an undeniably noticeable
impact in the workplace. Some of these include:
Talent: Adding women to the workplace increases the pool of talent for the company. Women
make up half of the population, so by not hiring women you are losing out on the great talents
and abilities that are out there.
Different perspectives: Women add a different perspective to the company, as they have
different life experiences in comparison to men. This leads to increased innovation and
creativity. Not only that, but their different perspectives can bring more relatability to customers
and/or clients.
Collaboration: Women are known for their high level of verbal communication skills, which is
beneficial during group meetings. It can foster better communication between individuals, and
lead to greater productivity for the company.

How Harkav Security supports women
At Harkav Security, women are celebrated and appreciated through Harkavs diversity and
inclusiveness. Security guard work has been seen as a stereotypical male job. Many years ago,
seeing a female security guard was like trying to pick a needle from a haystack. However, at
Harkav Security, female security officers are hired just as frequently as males, and perform the
same duties and tasks. This is because Harkav Security believes in equality for all. We hire our
female security guards looking beyond gender, and appreciate them for who they are and what
they bring to the company.

Our CEO, Sheetal Narwal, is a strong woman leader who has been able to effectively lead the company, with her extensive background in the corporate world and incredible leadership skills.

So what do women bring to Harkav Security?
- Creativity
- Talent
- Unique perspectives
- A better reflection of clients
- New visions
Lets honour and celebrate women today, and everyday, as their contributions enhance our
society in more ways than we can imagine.

How retail security can save you money

How retail security can save you money As a business owner, one of the most important things is ensuring that your business makes money, not loses it. Of course, unexpected and inevitable events happen. As we’ve seen with the current COVID-19 pandemic, businesses were hit hard, forcing many businesses to close, but what about situations that can be prevented? It is estimated that about 5 billion dollars are lost each year to shoplifting for canadian retailers [1]. This number is astounding, especially considering that shoplifting can be monitored and prevented. With this number on the rise, this can mean an early closure and major financial despair for business owners. Thankfully, Harkav retail security offers extensive loss prevention services to ensure that your business does not suffer from theft and the overall well being is protected. 


Here are 3 ways in which Harkav security can protect your business today: 

On site patrol: 

As we have seen throughout many stores, security officers monitor customers coming in and out, looking for any signs of theft, and potential theft. It is extremely important that customers planning to steal, do not actually make it out of the door with the item in tow. Harkav security guards are highly trained in not only looking for signs of theft, but approaching a thief. In order to keep peace and maintain respect for customers, security guards are trained in kindly approaching and resolving a situation. This protects store merchandise, but also ensures that the atmosphere in the store is not disrupted. 

CCTV monitoring: 

Many eyes are better than just two. CCTV is a video surveillance camera that captures pictures and videos from all angles of a store. Don't worry, these cameras are small and unnoticeable. This is extremely important in catching potential thieves as it ensures that all areas are covered. Harkav security officers work behind the scenes to keep tabs on all cameras, and send immediate support to potential theft situations. CCTV monitoring is beneficial for the overall well being of the store as many security guards are able to keep their eyes on the store without having to be present. This keeps customers comfortable while shopping, whilst protecting store merchandise. 

Employee training: 

 As important as having external help is, it is also important to ensure that the very people who work in your store, are equipped with the correct knowledge and training to handle potential theft situations. Employees are the first people that customers interact with, and often put a lot of trust into them. The employee customer relationship is important, and can often deter theft, if employees are well trained. Harkav security offers loss prevention training for employees, training them in what to look for , how to approach , who to call and how to prevent theft. By employees being prepared, theft can be prevented before it happens, not only protecting the business financially, but also ensuring that employees feel at ease and confident at work.

Five Reasons Why You Should Hire Event Security

If you're planning an event, you're probably waist-deep in e-mails and to-do lists. From venues and decor to tickets and special guests, the list goes on and on. But have you considered security services for your event yet?

You may be wondering if the costs of security are worthwhile, especially when you're only hosting a small-scale event. However, as a host of an event, it's your job and responsibility to keep everything in order and your guests safe. Here are five reasons why you should hire security for your next event.

Handle And Prevent Crime

Large crowds are the perfect opportunity for petty crimes such as pickpocketing or bag snatching. The crowd serves as the ideal getaway, and if guests are distracted in an event, they're unlikely to notice that something was stolen until it's too late.

Having a security service will help deter any criminal activity. Any shady folks may be less inclined to enter your event if they see security guards at the entrance. Moreover, if a crime does happen, security guards can take action right away.


Put Your Guests At Ease

Having quality security service at your event will help your guests feel safer. It implies that you, as the host, have made every effort to protect them and keep the event as safe as possible. Knowing that they'll have someone professional to turn to for help if trouble arises will also put your guests' minds at ease.

Monitor Guest Lists

It can be difficult, or even impossible, to keep track of your guests at a large event. Save yourself the uncomfortable task of turning someone away and hire professional security to manage your guest list instead. They will also help you make sure people are arriving in an orderly fashion.

If you're worried about large-scale crimes, security staff can check bags and belongings to ensure no illegal weapons are present at the event.

Crowd Control

A large crowd can quickly turn chaotic, especially if alcohol is involved. To prevent emergencies from getting out of hand, event security will develop an emergency evacuation plan and monitor entrances and exits to ensure your guests' safety.

Venue Requirements

You may be required to hire event security personnel so that they are less liable in the event of an accident or any criminal problems.

Are you in search of certified security services for your upcoming event? Harkav Security is your security guard agency of choice in Scarborough. We are dedicated to providing the finest security services customized to your specific needs. Keep your event guests safe with Harkav Security today!

What To Look For When Choosing A Security Service

Businesses big and small are now looking for security professionals to protect their valuable assets and customers. With so many security service providers out there, how do you choose the perfect provider for your business?Here are some things to look for when you're selecting a security service for your business.

Credentials

Credentials are a crucial determining factor when choosing between different security service companies. Accreditation gives assurance that the company is operating legally and compliant with industry standards. You should probably search for a more trustworthy option if a third-party organization does not recognize the company or if you find that they hire unlicensed personnel.

Flexibility

You may require security services for a variety of reasons. It's always a good idea to check if the security company you're interested in has the specific area of expertise you're looking for. Flexibility is key for a good security company. The best ones will take the time to create a customized security plan that addresses your needs, budget and concerns.

National Or Local?

Generally, security services can be divided into nationally or locally owned. Locally owned providers have the advantage of being more familiar with the local community. They are also more likely to be more personable and provide better customer service.

On the other hand, national security providers have the resources to hire highly-experienced guards with extensive training for the job. However, you might find that these companies are more rigid and have strict policies for their employees.

Customer Service

Open communication with your security service is essential. If you have changed security needs or risk situations, unresponsive customer service and line of communication can bring hefty consequences for you and your company.

Reviews

Nowadays, most people don't buy anything without looking at online reviews, and it should be no different when shopping for a new security service. It's important to do your due diligence and check out their ratings and reviews online. Some companies will also include customer testimonials on their website or even their existing customers' contact information so you can talk to them directly!

Understanding Todays’ threat in security world and making an informed decision is the key to protect your businesses

During one of the division’s meetings last month, Harvinder Singh, COO and president of Harkav Security mentioned that “An informed decision is all it it takes for any business to keeping their people and assets protected.”

Today when we think around the depth of this one line in technical terms, we get to know the significance of it. If  your organization has deployed or are thinking to deploy high standard of security with cctv surveillance and alarm response programs, it phenomenal and much acknowledged in today’s world. Numerous businesses deploy alarm and camera observation as the only step towards keeping their premises secure. Typically an amazing approach to extend safety and security, get eyes on the premises 24/7 and collect evidence in the event that required for any misdeed. This is often great value for the investment. However, as per security experts this approach is lacking in physical security and consequently the dangers and vulnerabilities are still high.

In today’s era, It’s exceptionally simple to disregard that your business’s ecosystem can never be totally digital. Physical security is each bit as critical as digital security. In a few cases, it’s indeed required for administrative compliance.

Harvinder Singh also added in the same conversation that “Its high time for many businesses to upgrade their security posture.”


Each business whether big or medium or small should have physical security measures in place. Think around the security of your workers and your clients. Think about the stories of vandalism, break-ins, robbery or comparable offences. Nearly each day there's a new story of a potential breach in Toronto/GTA for various businesses who dismissed the need for physical security as they had other means to keep eyes and ears on premises. However, we strongly believes that an additional hands and feet should be on premises at all times to avoid such instances.

Nobody would even want to physically hurt or perform any wrongdoing to the individuals or the premises of any business where there are guards patrolling.
