Posted by | Current Events | No Comments

Cambridge Security Services, a leading retail security company, offers a range of emergency security services, including security guards for hire on a temporary basis, to retailers nationwide. With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s time to put us on speed dial.

Cambridge Security has been serving the retail industry for more than 30 years, and we know that the busiest period in the retail calendar can test anyone’s patience. At a time when your organization should be focused on sales, unforeseen security emergencies can be a cause of distraction and disruption. We can fill in the gaps in your physical security, with well-trained professional security officers who have experience in the retail industry. We can also provide support for major shopping events like Black Friday, with its ever-widening run-up sales on Thanksgiving evening. Whether you require additional security at your store locations, or in your distribution centers and warehouses, one call to Cambridge Security will bring the extra security that you need, day or night.

Emergency Preparedness and Readiness Programs are often tested during the holiday season as well. Retailers need to be prepared for circumstances beyond their control, such as major weather events, or homeland security threats. We can work with you to minimize potential retail loss and address all of your security concerns. Our world-class security consultants are here to help you navigate this complex situation.

Cambridge Shopping Safety Tips

Posted by | Newsletter | No Comments


With the holidays upon us, we’ve put together our Top 10 Shopping Safety Tips to pass onto family and friends!

  1. When possible, avoid carrying a purse or wallet. If you do carry a purse, keep a firm grasp on it while shopping.
  2. Be aware of strangers who approach you; distraction is a common tactic used by thieves.
  3. Keep your ATM Card and cell phone in a safe place.
  4. When entering your pin number, make sure you’re not being watched.
  5. Keep packages in the trunk of your car, or out of view, while you continue to shop.
  6. When shopping with small children, teach your child their address and phone number in case you are separated. You can also print the information on an index card and place in a pocket of the child.
  7. Keep a record of all your credit card numbers in a safe place at home.
  8. Always be alert to your surroundings.
  9. Keep your cash in a front pocket.
  10. Keep all your original receipts.
