Mobile security patrol officers in uniforms or drive highly liveried in marked security vehicles can be recognised from a distance. This helps people visually recognise and understand that there is security present and acts as a warning to anyone considering committing a crime. The hands-on approach of having someone who is dedicated to the safety and security of an area can be considered a disincentive for criminal activity. Furthermore, as mobile patrols are not a static security service, security companies often stagger patrols and conduct them at irregular intervals in order to prevent a specific patrol pattern from being detected, making it much harder for opportunist criminals to break in or cause damage to your property.
Keyholding and Alarm Response
Because of the unpredictability of criminal activity, Mobile Security Patrol officers go with other security measures such as keyholding and alarm response. Keyholding enables rapid access to a premise if an alarm is activated or suspicious activity is detected and helps the mobile security patrol officers take the action to secure the property, whether that be to deploy additional response teams, make their presence known, alert a dedicated point of contact, or call the emergency services directly.
Range of Security Checks
Mobile Security Patrol officers can carry out a wide range of security checks. Mobile Security Patrols officers are extremely adaptable that are not limited by only monitor and respond to alarms but they can also carry out exterior patrols in places which may not be visible by cameras. Depending on the client’s requirements, Mobile Security Patrols officers can be contracted to perform any number of patrols, or property checks, day or night. As well as responding to alarm activations, Mobile Security Patrols officers can also include interior patrols, lock and unlock services and inspecting doors and windows for signs of attempted break-ins, providing the ultimate deterrence against opportunist thieves and criminals.
Surveillance of Multiple Locations
Being a cost-effective alternative to consistent guarding, mobile patrols allow security officers to patrol multiple locations in a short amount of time. Mobile Security Patrols officers can patrol on foot, by bike, or by car, which means that they can monitor multiple areas during a shift. By being able to cover ground quickly, mobile patrols provide businesses with the levels of protection which a single static guard could not achieve. They get to an emergency in plenty of time to avoid any alarm violations, and potentially catch criminals in the act. Additionally, as mobile patrols are conducted in a vehicle, should an emergency situation arise, mobile patrols officers can deal with the situation and prevent the incident from escalating much quicker than traditional forms of security measures. Through static sequences, they can keep an eye on several areas and help ensure that the premises are secure.
