Marijuana Security in Irvine

Irvine is a newer city with cannabis businesses pushing its progression.

Irvine only joined the state of California in 1971, making it a fairly recent addition to the already buzzing state of beaches and celebrities. In that time though, Irvine has solidified itself as a popular location, boasting beautiful real estate, colleges, and recently, a slew of cannabis related business (CRB).

Offering a variety of recreational marijuana dispensaries in the city, Irvine business owners need to practice safe protocols now more than ever. Fortunately, the right security team can help to ensure that these CRB experience safe, regulated services for years to come.

That being said, First Security Services has been training dedicated units specifically for these new businesses and their owners. This special services branch recognizes the vast range of needs that these business owners have, both when it comes to the security of their business and its employees, as well as following proper protocols.

The need for 420 security is more important than ever, and this team of professionals is prepared to offer comprehensive cannabis security plans to meet those needs.

The Latest in Business Security

While some security programs are only now realizing the growing need for assistance, First Security Services recognized early on that this trend would require additional training and knowledge.

With that being said, a special services division began dedicating their time to studying the potential risks and threats in the industry, as well as the local and state regulations that would be set for business owners.

With a great deal of time and training, this special unit was able to establish a cannabis security plan that would cater to all of the unique needs of every CRB in Irvine.

Building the Best Team For You

To build a team that would be best-equipped for cannabis protection, we combined our existing security knowledge and resources with the drive to support and protect all of the local cannabis businesses in Irvine.

The first step to building a team of marijuana security guards was employing our most skilled guards, who often have military backgrounds. These men and women are known for their tactical and combat skills, as well as their ability to perform in high-stress situations.

This special security team isn’t employed to stand around and intimidate consumers; although size, strength and combat skills are a huge part of keeping you safe.

While physical strength is a large part of safety, our specialized unit is trained to only use physical force as a last resort. Defusing the situation by other means is always a first priority, to try to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

That being said, you can trust that our guards maintain all of their military skills, and that we have also trained them with other defensive skills to keep you and your business free of danger.

More Than Just Physical Strength

At First Security Services, we value brute, robust strength as much as anyone. However, when it comes to cannabis protection in Irvine, we want to provide owners with protection in all aspects of their business.

That includes assisting business owners with all of the technical knowledge required to run a cannabis business. The last thing we want is a local business to suffer because they didn’t follow protocol, or didn’t have the time to check state regulations before they opened.

That being said, our special security team has taken the time to become educated about all of the requirements a CRB needs to adhere to. Not only can our team provide safety and security to storefronts, but their level of knowledge concerning the technical side allows them to make suggestions that will keep a business open.

The Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) requires a range of tasks to be completed, before a CRB can safely open. This includes having video surveillance installed, professional badges for all employees, enter-and-exit log sheet for various rooms, etc.

Applying for a Cannabis-Related Business

In the city of Irvine, owners hoping to open a CRB can do so now online. The application process is hefty and thorough; however, this ensures that business owners take care of a variety of factors before opening. These include:

  • Establishing security practices
  • Obtain the proper forms
  • Only buy/sell from members
  • Keep track of all marijuana products and inventory
  • Maintain updated knowledge about proper practices

Following all protocol might seem tedious, but it will help to ensure that your business never runs into issues with the law, or that it faces any kind of suspension or closing.

If you’re not sure how to establish the property security plan for your business, our special services team can provide you with a risk management plan that will keep you safe.

We offer consultations for any CRB opening in Irvine. During this process, we will get a grasp of your business plan, your store layout, your inventory plans, etc. Gathering all of this information will help us to create a security proposal that is catered to your store’s specific needs.

In the event that you are not following a particular state or local law, our team will recognize the issue and assist you in reversing the problem.
