If you’re looking to keep your business secure then you’ll be pleased to know that you have options open to you. For larger sites in particular, one of the most common and indeed most popular is through the use of mobile patrols. With this in mind, lets take a look at how they operate and more importantly, how they can help a company.
Firstly what exactly are they?
In essence when you hire a mobile security patrol it’s a cost effective alternative to taking on full time static guards. Normally patrols are sent from the security operator’s base at an agreed time at certain intervals. Once on site they will check the premises and perimeter as normal to see that security is being maintained. Depending upon the needs of the business,mobile patrols can either be high profile or covert.
Are they solely used for making sure security is being maintained?
Usually as standard practice yes. However depending upon the relationship with the business owner and the security team they might ask the mobile patrols to carry out other tasks such as making sure all lighting is switched off to save on utility bills. They might also ensure that desk clearance policies are adhered to and even health and safety standards are maintained.
Apart from the obvious, how does the client benefit from mobile patrols?
They provide peace-of-mind for all employees, as in reality nobody wants to work in a premises where they don’t feel safe and secure, especially at night! In addition a mobile patrol can act as a genuine deterrent for any opportunist criminal. Mobile security patrols have a far wider reach that a static patrol would and for obvious reasons can cover ground much quicker. This is why they’re ideal for larger establishments such as construction yards, large scale warehouses, housing developments etc. Finally mobile patrols are flexible to the client’s needs and can patrol as little or as often as they would like.
