With so much focus on new and affordable housing, housing developments are popping up all over the UK. Many ‘out of town’ estates can be targeted by criminals due to a lack of investment in their security. With families moving into sites that are still very much under development – with housing still being built – it leaves residents vulnerable to heightened levels of crime.

The cost-of-living crisis is easily enough to encourage criminals to steal valuable materials from buildings sites, and their opportunistic nature could easily lead to break-ins and burglaries of homes that are already inhabited.

Should a housing development be targeted in this way, it wouldn’t be long before potential buyers are put off by the reputation of crime in the area, making for an extremely costly situation for the developers.

Mobile patrols could easily be the answer!

As security experts, we understand how criminals act and aim to be always one step ahead! You too can be one step ahead by investing in a trusted security provider that understands your industry.

With mobile patrols, you can expect a branded electric vehicle to patrol your site any time of day or night. The bonus is that our electric vehicles are beautifully quiet, meaning new and existing residents would be undisturbed by your investment in their security. Seen and not heard!

All of our security officers hold a valid SIA license, meaning they’re highly trained individuals that we’re proud to have represent Carter Security, and they’re all fitted with a body camera as standard.

If it’s budget you’re concerned about, our mobile patrol option is cheaper than our manned guarding service, with our mobile patrol service costing just £12 per visit – subject to site inspection. Alongside this, you could opt for clear Carter Security signage, which acts as a brilliant deterrent to crime as well.

For more information on how we can support your business with our security consultancy service, please don't hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team.

Alternatively, if you're looking to further your career within the security industry, please check the careers section on our website or email us an up-to-date copy of your C.V. We never subcontract security guards, choosing instead to invest in training and we work hard to support our staff. We look forward to meeting you.
