Security is one area that all businesses have to think about and it covers many areas. These days,with all the headlines,IT security is often at the forefront of the mind,but there is the matter of physical security too. The cost of having on site,full time security patrols are often out of the question for most small and medium sized businesses and in these instances mobile security patrols can be the answer for you,your staff,and your customers.
Here are 3 reasons that mobile security guards can be the answer to your security issues:-
1. A Huge Deterrent
Mobile security guards are just that,mobile,and this means that unlike static guards,they can cover many areas over a period of time,and yet can also visit the same area many times too. Add in the feature of not doing this in a routine manner (varying the times of each visit) and you have a highly effective deterrent. With most criminal activity being typically opportunistic,many perpetrators having spotted that security guards are conducting regular spot checks are very likely to move on to an easier target. Besides this,they can also move very quickly when the alarm is raised or one is triggered,thus leaving perpetrators with less time to escape. These fast response times also give any staff that may be in danger,a greater sense of security and increase their sense of wellbeing,this being especially important in the case of ‘lone workers’.
2. Many Checks Are Possible
Static guards normally just carry out security checks within the business premises,or on the periphery,for instance at the gates. On the other hand mobile security guards can carry out a much wider variety of external checks. This allows protection for areas that are not covered by CCTV cameras. Thus they can check for signs of a forced entry on the perimeter fence,whilst also looking for vandalisms or graffiti. Plus of course they can also monitor for any suspicious activity within the vicinity of the premises.
3. Value for Money
Some firms may simply not be able to pay for a full time security guard to protect their company,premises,or property. In these instances mobile security guards offer a highly cost-effective option. This is easy to understand as unlike static on-site guards who have to be paid all the time they are on shift,mobile security patrol companies only charge for the time spent actually patrolling a premises. The downside of this choice is that you will not have a full time security presence,but given the fact that such patrols can cover a bigger area,and that the frequency of how often they visit is really down to you (and your budget) means that it can really be just what is needed.
So,if you are considering your firms security,or if you have always asked yourself “why should I choose to use mobile security patrols?”,you now have 3 compelling reasons to take this path. All you need to do is find the best security company to provide the necessary level of service,one that fully meets your firms needs and is one that is within your budget.
