A security company that provides on-site guard services to government or private entities present a unique set of risks. A security guard fidelity bond is an excellent mechanism for the protection of a guard company's clients and to advertise as a "bonded enterprise". This type of commercial crime coverage is a "third party fidelity bond" or "dishonesty bond". Fidelity bonds security for companies may be written on a blanket basis that protect ALL clients of the firm or per specific client. A fidelity bond offers transfer of the risk of dishonest acts of employees that provide firm services "on the premises" of those clients The policy may also be broadened to a full fidelity product which offers internal theft (embezzlement) protection. Employee theft from client property is common. Statistics demonstrate that approximately seventy five percent of retail and labor employees steal at least once and that those losses often account for nearly ten of annual revenue. Your moving business may be vulnerable to losses like these:

  • An employee of Eagle Guard Service, LLC was assigned to a static security position in a popular shopping mall. The employee stole a luxury watch from a jeweler's kiosk on mall premises.
  • An employee of Action Security, Inc. assigned to guard a bonded warehouse removed fur coats valued in excess of $50,000.
  • A security guard employed by Wells Fargo drugged and restrained two co-workers at a company garage, fleeing with $7 million

Background investigations, reference checks, interviews and proper credentialing of applicants are essential risk management tools however they are not guarantees that an employee will not commit a dishonest act in the course of his or her employment. One significant loss can zero a security company's revenues. A client lawsuit against the firm can result in bankruptcy, loss of license and irreparable reputation damage in the security sector. Employee theft is the cause of over a quarter of business failures.
