Mall Security Services
Shopping malls are America’s new “Main Streets”, and they present a wide range of safety and security concerns. So, mall security officers are required to respond to a variety of situations, from lost children to criminal activity. Therefore, they must effectively interact with the public, with mall tenants and management, and with local law enforcement. Therefore, we ensure that our officers are equipped and qualified to handle any safety and security situation that may arise in a shopping mall. So, our mall security services are designed with the needs of your facility and location in mind. So, everything from uniform to daily duties can be fully customized.
Our mission in mall security is to represent mall management in a positive manner, protect from losses, and serve the public.
Likewise, one main security concern in shopping malls is that of loss prevention. So, theft, vandalism, and trespassing all pose a risk of property damage or loss to mall management and tenants. Our mall security services are designed to prevent loss or damage due to:
- Theft and pick pocketing
- Vandalism and graffiti
- Trespassing and vagrants
- Safety hazards (spilled liquids, unsafe promotional displays)

Our mall security officers provide ancillary services to mall tenants as Good Will Ambassadors. So, at Twin City Security, we understand that mall tenants are trying to make money, and return visits are crucial to this goal.
