A Little Background
History shows that there have been watchmen (security guards) since the middle ages. Particularly in Europe, it has been documented that in the late middle ages a chair appeared called “the watchman’s chair.” This was a plain wooden chair with no cushioning, in which the seat slanted forward in the theory that it would prevent the watchman from falling asleep during their duty.
The first professional guard booths were established were referred to as Sentry Posts or Watch Towers. Some were sturdy enough to host a jail cell for detaining arrested suspects until more official authority could relocate them to a large and more functional prison.
The main function of the guard then as it is now was to provide security and to detect the presence of an intruder, a person or of an object that for reasons of security, are not permitted to be allowed onto the premises or place that they are guarding.
