NY USA /– Manhattan business owners have been calling for immediate help while the NYPD is spread thin, dealing with protests, looting and arson in the New York City. USPA International, the parent company of USPA Nationwide Security has been called in to support the police in keeping rioters and looters from destroying NYC businesses, restaurants and critical infrastructure amid demonstrations against police brutality and systemic racism.
According to Sondae Esposito, Executive Vice President of USPA, “We’re all slammed,” she told DailyMail.com. “The phones are literally ringing off the walls!”
“The assistance of our Close Protection Officers to protect the media have been requested in major cities all over the country” said Michael Evans, the firm’s CEO. He’s referring to reporters who are covering what usually starts out as peaceful demonstrations, but turn into violent looting when buildings, vehicles and storefronts are set on fire while local stores are ransacked.
Governors across the country have announced that members of the Army National Guard are also assisting with crowd control as well as other duties.
“Our security guards will work alongside law enforcement and the national guard to provide security to critical infrastructures and private businesses during the protests to prevent looting,” Esposito said. “Our presence here in simply to keep people safe and mitigate the loss of our local businesses, while protecting citizens’ right to protest.”
