In the rapidly changing landscape of security, businesses are continually seeking effective and adaptable solutions to safeguard their assets and premises. Among the variety of security measures at a business owner’s disposal, mobile patrol security stands out as one of the most dynamic and efficient security options available.
In large cities that remain active at night, such as Vancouver, Edmonton, and Toronto, mobile security can be a vital element of a business’s security strategy in ensuring property safety during night hours. In this blog, we’ll explore 5 key advantages that make mobile patrol security a valuable asset for businesses of all kinds.
Mobile Patrol Security is Cost-Effective
Employing full-time uniformed security personnel to continually monitor property can be costly. Fortunately, mobile security is a highly efficient and cost-effective alternative. Unlike static security guards, mobile patrol guards will visit a site on a predetermined schedule and perform routine checks, dramatically reducing security costs.
Larger sites that may require multiple static security guards stationed at key points can benefit from the increased ground coverage of mobile security patrols. This efficiency translates into cost savings for businesses while maintaining a strong and visible security presence.
Flexibility and Customization
One size doesn't fit all when it comes to security needs. Mobile patrol security offers a unique degree of flexibility and customization options to meet the individual requirements of every business. Whether a business is a sprawling construction site, a smaller condominium, or a commercial space, mobile security can enhance your security measures effectively.
Mobile security patrols can be scheduled as frequently or infrequently as desired depending on business needs. This flexibility ensures that a business’s security strategies are tailored to address unique and specific risks and vulnerabilities.
Mobile Patrol Security Covers A Wide Footprint
One of the top advantages of mobile patrol security is its ability to cover a wide footprint. This is incredibly useful for our clients who own several properties in need of protection and who may not need a stationary uniformed security guard at each location.
Unlike stationary guards who are limited to a fixed location, mobile security patrols can traverse large areas, making them ideal for securing expansive properties such as shopping malls. This wide coverage is particularly beneficial for businesses with extensive outdoor spaces or parking areas, multiple entry points, or those located in industrial parks such as warehouses or construction sites.
Enhanced Response Time and Visibility
Incident response time is a critical factor in minimizing the impact of security threats. Mobile patrols excel in this area, as they can quickly respond to alarms, disturbances, or suspicious activities. At Blackbird Security, our dedicated, highly responsive command center staff are available 24/7 to respond to client calls and dispatch mobile security guards to sites swiftly.
Though response time is critical, the best strategy is always prevention. Burglars will typically case a property for a few days to a few weeks before committing a theft. The high visibility of our mobile vehicle fleet at Blackbird Security ensures these potential thieves are discouraged from targeting properties protected by our mobile security patrols. The roofs of our vehicles are equipped with flashing lights, further increasing visibility and acting as a strong deterrent.
Additionally, as mobile security patrols are conducted on a randomized schedule, criminals will not be able to gauge a “safe” time to break and enter.
Mobile Patrol Security Augments Existing Security Strategies
A multi-faceted approach to security is crucial. Mobile security seamlessly integrates into your existing security strategy, enhancing its overall effectiveness.
Mobile security guards can assist with monitoring CCTV cameras, checking access control systems, monitoring for perimeter security vulnerabilities, and can swiftly arrive on the scene in the case of a triggered alarm. Mobile guards will write reports as security incidents unfold, allowing business owners to stay up to date on emerging security concerns during off hours.
At Blackbird Security, our guards conduct reports with TrackTik, a state-of-the-art security software that allows our clients and control center staff to maintain a transparent view of incidents and patrol routes. TrackTik can be accessed by clients through our partner portal, giving them as much visibility as desired.
