Non-profit organizations (NPOs) offer unique challenges for both the organization and a security company. Sustaining the ability to offer economical services while serving the unique client base of an NPO can often be challenging.
Security guards must be properly educated to help with individuals who may have some personal challenges that are not commonly encountered at most sites. Additionally, the protection of employees, property, and the general public needs to be addressed and properly executed.
NPOs face threats ranging from theft to terrorism. Some NPOs may serve a more at-risk demographic while others may face a higher risk because they are considered controversial to some groups. These days it’s not just activist or outreach organizations that are in danger, even churches and schools are not off limits as potential targets of crime or worse.

Choosing the right security professional is considerably more important and different than in any other area in need of security. Elite Investigations will spend time ensuring that they develop the right profile of skills and characteristics for the security guards to serve your needs.
Security guards for non-profit agencies must be fully aware of the threats that may come from outside of your organization while still being aware of and not interfering with your mission. Guards must be highly trained and possess the skills and attributes necessary to diffuse situations involving volatile players while not deterring community involvement at events or diminishing your team’s reputation of compassion and professionalism. Security guards from Elite Investigations can do just that.
Which NPOs Need Security Guards?
The mission and services of NPOs are very diverse. NPOs include everything from activist organizations to social service organizations to schools and churches. NPOs need different types of security for different reasons based on their own individual purposes.
Social service organizations often deal with a vulnerable population that may include individuals dealing with personal trauma, underlying mental health issues, and other crises. Some of these people may be unstable or become dangerous creating a need for security guards to provide safety for the organization's workers and other patrons.
Activist organizations often take unpopular or cutting-edge positions and face extreme opposition. Sometimes the opposition to an activist organization can become unhinged making the NPO a target of violence or terrorism. The watchful eye of security guards can deter and prevent criminals from targeting your activist organization.
It is sad to think that schools and religious organizations can be victimized, but it is all too common to deny. From thefts to shootings, these types of organizations need security guards to keep students and visitors safe.
