Cannabis Security Company West Hollywood

Security staff are intricately important to a cannabis dispensary or cannabis consumption lounge in West Hollywood. Having quality security staff reflects well on businesses by customers, patients, neighbors, and the public. West Hollywood cannabis businesses are tasked with extra compliance measures in addition to supplying sufficient security staff for their business, like supplying a required 2 block security patrol designed to deter noise, black market sales, and illegal consumption. These security guards are the first and last person sees when they come in to a cannabis business and the only person someone sees when there is a problem.

The laws in California have changed immensely, allowing recreational cannabis users to purchase and partake at home or in consumption lounges. This has translated, of course, to a boom in small and large businesses alike that are subject to strict requirements, including extensive security measures, to even obtain the appropriate licenses and permits.

As a proponent of public safety, and as the state moves into enhanced regulations for licensed marijuana facilities, we find it important to delve into the requirements to ensure everyone is playing it safe.

AEGIS Security & Investigations was started out of a clear identification of a single large gap in security: a lack of professionalism. Our management team alone knows what it is like to work for unprofessional companies and with teams that do not impress upon their officers the importance of staying professional.

Additionally, we never simply send our security officers into the field and hope for the best. We have a 24/7 management team that works with our field officers to ensure sites are secure. Our supervisors visit client sites regularly and conduct additional patrols not only to ensure our staff are on point but to ensure you as our client are assured of our security presence.
