Why medical facilities should hire off-duty officers during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We are in an uncertain times, and amidst the chaos of a pandemic, order and safety should be of the utmost importance. This is why it’s not only crucial for medical facilities to hire an off-duty police officer, but in today’s climate, it’s a necessity. There are many benefits of hiring an off-duty officer, and below are just a few ways in which our police officers can aid a medical facility in protecting its patients and employees. 

  1. Enforcing COVID-19 Protocols In Place:

One of the biggest challenges we face in today’s society is Covid-19. We wonder how to regulate normal business operations while ensuring that all safety protocols are being followed by those entering the establishment. The owners, operators, and managers can reduce the stress of this by hiring a Law Enforcement Specialists off-duty police officer to enforce these rules:

  • Enforce Social Distancing
  • Ensure that masks/face coverings are being worn properly upon entering the facility.
  • Scan for temperatures for the employees if needed.

 

Our Officers are trained and qualified and take an active role in making sure your business, employees, and customers are out of harms way.

  1. To bring order when tense moments arise

With a global pandemic (Coronavirus) the world as we know it is changing rapidly. With these changes comes panic, and this can lead to a great amount of disturbance. People act in ways we would have never predicted. With a combination of a climbing unemployment rate, coupled with the constant media exposure regarding the chaos that Covid-19 has established, it’s more important now than ever to have protection.  At LES our officers are well trained and equipped to deescalate any high intense situation.

Here are some steps they may take:

  • Stay calm.
  • Manage their own response.
  • Set limits.
  • Handle challenging questions.
  • Prevent a physical confrontation.

 

  1. To Handle traffic control in medical facility parking lots.

Off-duty police officers are hired to help the flow of traffic, whether it be for sporting events, traffic control in intersections, concerts, and many other major social events. Not only do they help with larger events, they can also help with smaller events or gatherings going on. For example, where Covid-19 stations are. When waiting in line to get tested, get vaccinated, or simply to enter a hospital, off duty officers make sure that this process is done smoothly and effectively. When hiring off-duty from LES we can assure you will get the most trained and skilled policemen. 

Safety is always the number priority, especially when medical facilities are being over-run with patients who are seeking care regarding Covid-19. Having an off-duty police officer on site will not only give peace of mind to your patients, but they will also help maintain order and safety at medical facilities.
