The security needs of the lodging industry present a unique set of challenges. The challenge is to develop a Hotel Security program by one of our expert consultants, which above all provides protection for its guests. However, it must do so in a non-obtrusive manner that respects the guest's privacy. Second, the Hotel Security program provided for by one of our expert consultants must protect the assets of both guests and the hotel.
A significant portion of this threat is from employees. Hotels must not only be concerned about the protection of equipment and supplies, but also need to be concerned about their bar, restaurant, and gift shop operations. Access management, especially to guest rooms, requires do diligence for an effective Hotel Security Program. Our expert consultant team advises that traditional security methodologies such as locking and lighting must meet contemporary standards. Most premises liability lawsuits that assert claim of inadequate security revolve around these types of issues.
Our expert security consultant team explains that because hotels are in multiple businesses, there is a multiplicity of security concerns emanating from within and without. They involve both front of the house as well as back of the house concerns. These concerns apply to restaurant bar operations, nightclubs, and gift shops. These businesses within the hotel are cash and credit operations that are vulnerable to internal and external scams. From an expert hotel security consultant perspective, the integrity of inventories is also at stake, such as food and liquor.
