As well as, security guards do not have proper knowledge of handling many things like – checking documents, checking CCTV cameras (Closed-circuit television camera), how to handle emergency situations like fire catching incidences, lift accidents etc. So, it seems that there is a need of training for them to handle such situation more skillfully.
