The Top 3 Benefits of Mobile Patrol Security
At Off Duty Officers, our priority is keeping your property safe and secure. Many customers come to us without a clear picture of their most pressing security threats and which security services would benefit them the most. We understand how daunting and scary it can be to think about all of the potential dangers that your home or business could face. That’s why we love helping clients to assess threats and then provide suggestions for the best security solutions to meet their needs.
Customers often think they need to spend a lot of money on a dedicated, 24/7 private security force. In fact, this is not always the most effective option. Many times customers would get the most benefit for their money out of mobile patrols for their homes or businesses.
What is Mobile Patrol?
While it’s never smart to break the law, vandals and thieves are getting wiser in their quest to pull off the perfect crime. Technology has allowed criminals to have better access and more information about homeowners and businesses. Those responsible for the safety of a property need to be even smarter and more prepared.
Mobile patrol security personnel travel both random and scheduled routes in marked, professional patrol vehicles or on foot to watch for criminal behavior or other suspicious activity. Because they are not located in a fixed location, these security personnel have the benefit of surprising would-be criminals and ensuring that bad elements have no safe time to execute their crimes.
A typical example of mobile patrol at its best can be found in parking lots of many large shopping centers. Mobile patrols drive around the property in regular and random routes, acting as a visible presence to those who might want to commit a crime.
In the unfortunate event of an act of vandalism or other harm, mobile security patrols are often the first ones on the scene and can immediately contact the police or emergency medical personnel. Better yet, the mere presence of mobile security can often deter a crime from being committed in the first place.
What are the Benefits of Mobile Patrol?
Mobile patrol is a great option for many businesses and properties, including residential and apartment communities, large parking lots and construction sites. Mobile patrols often cost much less than dedicated security personnel while still providing a high level of safety and peace of mind. And think of all the money you will save when you don’t have to repair or replace damaged or stolen property!
There are many benefits to hiring mobile security patrols. In this article, we are going to highlight three of the primary benefits and talk about how you can learn more about the mobile patrol security services that we offer at Off Duty Officers.
Alert and Active Security Personnel
Mobile patrol guards are different than security guards who post up in a security shack or at the entrance to a property. Mobile patrols are constantly on the move, traversing the property in search of suspicious behavior. Because of this, they are always ready at a moment’s notice to step into action.
More Coverage, More Protection
There are many security options available for business and property owners today. Depending on your business and the threats you are facing, some of these security solutions can leave holes in your security program. Security cameras and stationary guards can be great options but they are typically constrained in their ability to provide total coverage of your property. Mobile patrols can help remedy this problem because they are able to protect more area either on foot or using vehicle patrols.
Visible Crime Deterrent
When a thief or vandal is considering which property to hit next, they will opt for the most predictable and easy target. Mobile patrols are unpredictable compared to some of the other security options mentioned above. A property protected by mobile patrol security personnel is much less likely to be a target of criminal activity. Even the dumbest of criminals know that roving security guards are not something to take lightly.
