With protests continuing in cities around the country, there appears to be an increased need for security officers to assist in ensuring public and private entities and individuals are safe. In one recent example, Washington-based Jaguar Security Inc. was hired to patrol a Seattle park.

SEATTLE — Seattle Parks and Recreation has hired private security to patrol Cal Anderson Park in Capitol Hill overnight.
Cal Anderson Park has been closed to the public since the end of June after protesters took over several blocks near the park during the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP).
The hiring of armed security followed a larger scale clean-up of Cal Anderson Park on Tuesday. Although the park has been closed for two months, Schulkin said the park has been vandalized throughout the closure, and groups of people have set up tents within the park.
