Anyone looking to maintain security on their premises has a range of security options open to them. For larger sites, one of the most common is the mobile patrol. Let’s take a look at how they work and more importantly how they can help your business
So what exactly mobile patrols?
Mobile patrols are a cost-effective solution when it comes to maintaining security in and around your premises. Unlike static security guarding where you pay a company to be there either during non-working hours or 24/7, a mobile security guard will patrol your premises periodically. They can either be high profile and visible to act as a deterrent or alternatively, they can be covert if needed.
What are they looking for?
In essence, companies that offer mobile patrol services tend to cover a wide range of different tasks depending on the needs of the client. However, generally speaking, the standard task is to maintain premises security and to make sure that there are no breaches in place. They may also be responsible for making sure lights are switched off and windows closed, clear desk policies are adhered to, and even making sure that health and safety standard is maintained by reporting any hazards where applicable.
What are security patrols benefits to your business?
First and foremost the obvious benefit is that your business or premises are being watched over when you’re not there. This gives both you and your employees peace of mind. Let’s face it, no one wants to work in an environment where they don’t feel safe. Besides, it’s a legal obligation for business owners to protect their staff when they’re under your care. In addition, the mere presence of mobile patrols is often enough to put off any would-be thief or burglar and chances are they’ll go and target somewhere else that has less security. Finally, mobile patrols can cover a much larger area than static security can, and in less time. As a result, you won’t be paying to have an on-site presence 24/7, meaning that mobile patrolling is a cost-effective option.
