8 benefits of mobile patrol security

Mobile patrols are a type of security service that involves security guards travelling to different locations at set intervals. This type of security is often used in situations where there is a need for regular checks but a stationary guard would be unnecessary or impractical, such as in large businesses or premises with multiple buildings. The team at Patlaw Securities outline 8 benefits of mobile patrol security.

1. Mobile patrol security services deter crime

Mobile patrol security guards are a highly visible service. They are an excellent way to augment your current security measures and detect any potential dangers towards a business. This could be accidental dangers such as fire or criminal damage such as break-ins, vandalism or theft. Imagine criminals roaming around your premises to do their homework. Their planning for near future intrusion can be caught, responded and avoided by a patrolling officer who can identify them.

2. Mobile patrol security guards can react quickly

Mobile patrolling offers speed and a fast response to anything that happens within or outside the premises. More agility means greater security as the criminals and offenders are not presented with enough time to avoid the patrolling officers’ sight and escape. The quick response time of mobile security guards can help minimise damage and reduce recovery time and costs following an incident.

3. Mobile patrol security guards can minimise fire damage

A fire at a business or complex can cause extensive damage, disrupt operations and put lives at risk. A mobile patrol can quickly identify and respond to fires before they spread and cause serious damage.

4. Mobile patrols cover a large area

Mobile patrol security guards cover a larger area than stationary security guards. Because they cover more ground, they are more likely to catch potential criminals in the act which can prevent crimes before they happen.

5. Mobile patrols offer flexibility

The route and schedule of a mobile patrol can be easily changed to suit the needs of the organisation they are guarding.

6. Mobile patrols are a cost-effective security solution

Mobile patrol services are usually cheaper than hiring stationary security guards because you don’t have to pay for the overhead costs associated with maintaining a physical security presence at multiple locations at the same time. Overheads can include rent for office space, equipment, insurance, utilities and payroll taxes. All other overheads are covered by the provider.

7. Mobile patrols offer reliability
A reliable security patrol company will track metrics and have them available for review by clients upon request. With technological advancement, it’s easy for vehicular and personal GPS to exactly locate where, when and what the security officers on patrol are doing while at work. This helps to keep the security officers on track by ensuring they stop burglary and theft.

8. Mobile patrols offer safety for workers and clients
You might think that security issues arise under the cover of darkness but the truth is that safety is also required during the day. Most businesses operate during the day and sometimes criminal activities happen in broad daylight. These criminal activities include theft, shoplifting in retail outlets and disorderly people. Hence, security measures should be taken into account to ensure workers in businesses and their clients are always safe.
