What we Do

Bay Area Retail Security

Theft represents one of the most notable risks to any retail business. On-site San Francisco store security helps to reduce loss by identifying and preventing theft in the moment as well as acting as a deterrent to would-be thieves.

Nob Hill Security offers around-the-clock retail security coverage for your San Francisco retail outlet, ensuring your protection during business hours, after hours, and when you are closed. We protect individual stores, providing on-brand security and enforcement according to your needs.

Remote and On-Site Retail Protection

Retail store managers and operators have to deal with the rising costs of doing business every day. A security guard on the premises helps to reduce loss due to theft, preserving your margins, and allowing your staff to focus on providing excellent service to your customers.

We protect your establishment in many ways, ensuring that no detail is missed in the effort to secure your premises. CCTV and security cameras help us monitor your premises discreetly, while our on-site officers observe and patrol the floor. Alarm systems are monitored while officers are on-site, assuring a secure premises.

Maximizing Customer Satisfaction

Your customers value a safe and secure shopping experience. San Francisco retail security provides a sense of order they will appreciate, especially if you cater to a high-net-worth clientele.

A secure environment also instills your employees with pride and confidence; plus, when they know they do not have to worry about criminal activity, it helps them relax and put the focus back on the customer, as it should be.

A Branded Security Experience

Our Bay Area retail security is brand-conscious. Your brand represents the public’s idea of who you are and what you stand for. Nob Hill Security understands the importance of aligning operations to the brand, and that being part of the team is a high priority.

We see what we do as an extension of who you are. Our security guards are as discreet as you need them to be and can be highly visible or a seamless part of the background, according to your preference. Each officer is guaranteed to be professional, friendly, presentable, and skilled in critical areas such as de-escalation, theft prevention, and communication.

Many of our officers are also certified in CPR and first aid, and we will deploy personnel with this training upon request.

Case Study:

High-End Union Square Store Avoids Crushing Loss

A retail store in Union Square was tired of unreliable and unfriendly security guards in their San Francisco flagship store. They hired Nob Hill Security based on our previous experience in high-end retail.

One week before our engagement began, all stores in Union Square were forced to shut down for three months due to a citywide mandate. We immediately transitioned to nightly patrols and identified a potential burglary attempt before the suspect could gain access. When the front door was smashed in on another night, it was quickly discovered during a routine patrol. 

A supervisor was immediately posted at the store entrance to protect the store merchandise until the door could be replaced. When the store reopened, we provided a security officer with retail and customer service experience to stand at the front door and greet customers as they entered.

The store avoided significant loss due to theft and vandalism during the shutdown, and customers were treated to a high-end and secure shopping experience when they returned.
