Protect Your Investment with Patrol Services

Visibility is a powerful crime deterrent. By their presence alone, uniformed patrol officers can help enhance your employees’ safety and reduce the risk of vandalism or theft on your property. Whether officers patrol on foot, on bicycles, on Segways or in vehicles, they are trained to notice anything out of the ordinary – and to prevent problems before they start.

Some of the ways patrol services may be able to help you include:

Vehicle Patrol 

  • Making visible rounds in a distinctive, marked car

  • Touring property as well as parking decks and lots

  • Driving through the property in random patterns

  • Vacation watch and community watch programs


Foot Patrol 

  • Making a specified number of visits each day

  • Checking the entire property, including grounds

  • Checking windows, doors, locks, vehicles, loading docks, illegally parked vehicles and other locations as specified

  • Ensuring office spaces are secure, file cabinets are locked and appliances are turned off

  • Checking fuse boxes, safes, fire and smoke detectors, lights and ceiling fans

  • Checking pipes for breaks, water leaks or other abnormalities

  • Checking thermostats to maintain a specific temperature


Bicycle Patrol

  • Riding through the property in random patterns

  • Riding around the property in areas not accessible to vehicles

  • Touring parking decks and lots


Customized Service

Patrol services should be customized to meet your unique needs. Frequently, personnel are asked to lock and unlock facilities, turn lights and heating/cooling systems on and off, close windows, conduct drive-by security checks, provide after-hours security escorts, and respond to alarms. They also deter trespassers on your property. Should the need arise, patrol personnel should coordinate with local law enforcement.

Accountable by Design

While a good patrol officer is always on the move, that same quality makes it challenging to track his or her actions. You should be provided with detailed accounts of each patrol. Information such as: Written reports and activity logs when situations are as expected, incident reports when patrol check points are out of the ordinary, and tour reports for documentation and invoice backups.

Contain Costs While Enhancing Safety

Patrol services are a cost-effective alternative to dedicated on-site security officers. You can maximize their effectiveness by posting warning signs that say your property is “protected”, “monitored” or “patrolled.” Even if you already have security officers in place, patrol services can provide an extra boost in visibility. You may find that a patrolled area requires fewer officers during off-hours, thereby reducing your costs.
