From the largest manufacturing and distribution hubs to the smallest local shopping centers, owners and managers of all kinds of businesses know the importance of a capable security team. Every facility has a set of unique needs; the threats and concerns of a particular area, property, or industry must inform a facility’s security strategy. Security vehicle patrol services are a standard tool for larger properties with security concerns. The experts at CES Security offer security vehicle patrol services to provide superior crime deterrence and monitoring services to our valued clients in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Here are some of the benefits and uses of security vehicle patrol services for large commercial or residential properties.
Utilizing Security Vehicle Patrol Services for Crime Deterrence
One of the most significant benefits of a mobile patrol unit on one’s property is the highly visible presence they can provide. Patrol vehicles and uniformed guards can stick out like a sore thumb, and that’s a good thing. Having a crack team of security professionals patrolling your site can send a strong message to would-be trespassers, vandals, and thieves: it won’t be easy to commit a crime on this property without getting caught. Often, the appearance of security staff and physical security measures is enough to make criminals think twice.
Security Vehicle Patrol Services Provide Valuable Monitoring
When suspicious characters are not dissuaded by the presence of guards on your property, mobile patrol officers act as monitors to detect crime or unusual activity. Unlike security cameras or alarm systems, security guards possess a valuable human element, including the capacity for critical thinking and rapid response to emergencies and crime. While a security camera can transmit footage of a trespasser, for instance, a security guard can determine whether the person is ill-intentioned or simply lost. They can gather more information, act when appropriate, and report the incident after the fact.
Mobile Patrols Can Cover Large Areas
Unlike guards who perform on-foot patrols or are stationed in guard shacks or lobbies, mobile patrol officers can protect large areas. Patrol vehicles give these professionals the ability to cover large outdoor properties, multi-building facilities, and residential developments that would otherwise be difficult to secure. Security vehicle patrol services can also help your bottom line. Instead of stationing guards in each of your facility’s buildings, you may be able to have a smaller number of mobile patrol officers covering the same area.
