News sources cited the story of a Los Angeles, CA synagogue security guard and a suspicious-looking woman. After repeated warnings to stop filming the house of worship and leave the area, the security officer fired a warning shot to the ground, but injured the self-proclaimed activist in the foot. In today’s precarious world where hate, mass shootings and terrorism are on the rise, security guards are hired for financial trade protection, as well as for schools, houses of worship, cultural centers, nightclubs, businesses and other public places. Security guards and the companies and agencies they represent face a host of liability exposure. That’s where a carefully designed individualized insurance program comes in for associated coverage. Insurance companies place the security guard industry in a similar class as detectives or private eyes, focusing on related training programs, usage of firearms, nature of guard duty, canine assistance, as well as the individual loss history before binding an associated policy.
