Mobile patrols are a key service to support all industries including construction, retail, corporate and commercial. Mobile patrols generally operate alongside existing CCTV monitoring and/or manned guarding, and it’s a security service that is active day and night. If you have larger business premises such as a construction site or industrial site, manned guarding and mobile patrols are a great solution for maintaining the security of your site and reducing the risk of crime.
What are mobile security patrols?
Mobile security patrols simply mean security guards that can move around your premises, beyond a fixed location, to ensure order and report any suspicious behaviour. This might be particularly relevant out of hours, ensuring that there are trained eyes at your premises throughout the night, ready to react to suspicious activity.
Many larger sites already have CCTV in place, but it’s important to consider the places that CCTV cannot reach, or when CCTV vision could be compromised, such as during the night when light levels are low, or when poor weather conditions affect visibility. The size of the premises and your bespoke security requirements will determine the frequency of which your site would be patrolled.
If your business is operating on a tight budget, the lesser expensive mobile patrol service makes an excellent second choice to manned guarding. The security officers can range from 1 – 5 per day/night. This means you can secure high-risk areas such as fuel dumps, vehicles, office blocks, gates, windows, scrap and waste bins used for materials.
