What Are the Benefits of Live Guard Patrols?

Do you own or operate a commercial building? Are you responsible for maintaining a hospital facility? Do you manage a large construction site?

When it comes to security, even the latest and greatest technological advancements can't replace the effectiveness of a live security guard. Are you ready to explore the benefits of live guard patrols for your business?

Read on to learn about the top benefits of hiring live guard patrols from Off Duty Officers and how you can get started with our team of professionals today.

Take Criminals Off Guard

Live guard patrols are mobile, meaning that they can move around your property on both random and scheduled rounds. For business owners, this is a huge benefit. For one, scheduled patrols ensure that all areas of your property are observed on a regular basis. Guards become familiar with the property so they can easily identify when there has been a change that is of concern.

Random patrols have the element of surprise. Even if your property is being staked out by a criminal, they won't be able to anticipate when a random patrol will occur. They will risk their freedom if they attempt a crime when a business utilizes random guard patrols.

Regular Security Checks

When you get busy, it can be easy to put safety and security checks on the back burner. Live guard patrols can do this for you so you can ensure that all your systems are operable and up-to-date. 

For example, a live guard patrol could regularly check your access points to ensure that your gates are operable and that your locks are in working order. They can also observe any vulnerabilities that could pose a safety and security threat in the event of an evacuation, such as a blocked staircase, locked fire escape or broken fire extinguisher.

By having a dedicated team to keep track of these security items, you can be in a better position to protect your people, property and assets.

Nothing Can Replace the Human Element 

While security cameras and alarm systems can give you valuable information, they can't do anything to stop a crime from taking place. A live security guard is meant to do just that.

When a security event takes place, your dedicated security guard is typically the first one on the scene. Their training and experience prepares them to handle a wide variety of security situations. They have the tools to deescalate tense situations, safely and lawfully detain individuals and competently communicate with law enforcement.

Guards from Off Duty Officers are some of the most experienced guards in the industry. Many of our guards are off duty or retired law enforcement or military personnel who have extensive in the field experience and strong instincts. In the event of an emergency, Off Duty Officers’ live guard patrols will act quickly and competently to protect you and your business.
