Restaurant Security Guards for Chicago Restaurants

Prioritizing security is crucial for Chicago restaurant owners. Chicago is unfortunately known for its crime rate, making security measures essential to protect staff, patrons, and property. The top five most common crimes in the Chicago area include theft, robbery, vandalism, burglary, and assault, all of which can significantly impact a restaurant. Theft poses a threat to valuable equipment, inventory, and supplies. Financial loss is the biggest concern for a restaurant owner. With robbery threatening the safety of customers, vandalism negatively affecting your business’s image, and assault incidents tarnishing your restaurant’s reputation there’s a clear solution. By investing in restaurant security guards you can keep customers feeling safe and prevent violent crimes from interrupting your restaurant. 

Centinel Security requires guards to report any unusual activity at the end of their shift to ensure communication and better prepare the next guard. Centinel performs audits at random – ensuring our restaurant security personnel stay vigilant.
