Mobile Security Patrols

I’m using the opportunity of my monthly blog to highlight one of our core services: Mobile Security Patrols. This is an increasingly popular security option for Small-Medium businesses without a dedicated security manager or security budget, but who are looking to add additional resilience to their business operations.

WHAT DO MOBILE SECURITY PATROLS INVOLVE?

Mobile Security Patrols involve a uniformed security officer in a liveried vehicle visiting your premises at random/specified times to conduct what is typically a 10-15 minute check of the site. These patrols can be limited to the site perimeter and the external doors and windows, or can alternatively be a more detailed internal check of the building. The frequency of these patrols depends on your individual requirements.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF THESE PATROLS?

Mobile Security Patrols provide an excellent balance between detection and deterrence. They offer a cost-effective alternative to businesses looking for an alternative to a manned security presence or a monitored CCTV system. Mobile patrols are particularly attractive for customers seeking a temporary or flexible solution that can be amended at short notice when there is a shift in the customer’s risk profile.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT THEY HAVE BEEN COMPLETED?

As part of any solution involving Mobile Security Patrols, Oakpark Security utilises an electronic ‘proof of presence’ system called SmartTask™. This application runs from the mobile PDA devices supplied to our Mobile Security Officers and allows the verification of patrols by scanning NFC tags placed around your property. It also allows the officer to produce reports and attach photographic evidence of any damage encountered.

WHAT AREAS DOES OAKPARK SECURITY COVER?

Oakpark Security covers the entire of East Anglia (Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex). From our network of offices in Colchester, Norwich and Cambridge, we can provide reduce the costs of service delivery while ensuring that we have the appropriate levels of local staffing resilience and management oversight in place. We can also provide Mobile Security Patrols across Hampshire and West Sussex from our Portsmouth Regional Office in Fareham.

WHAT DO MOBILE SECURITY PATROLS COST?

Pricing structure for Mobile Security Patrols is determined on three criteria; the postcode of your premises (to determine our local resources), the number of patrols that are being requested, and the type of patrol required and the time it will take to complete.
