In this week’s blog, we highlight the top three reasons why mobile patrol is an advantageous security option. During this precarious time, finding the right security solution for your business is more important than ever. Last week, a disheartening statistic was published: commercial break-ins in Vancouver have increased by 147% during the COVID-19 crisis. Even with security cameras, criminals are getting away with break-ins at a rate we haven’t seen before. Businesses already face permanent closure over mounting debt. The increased property damage and loss of inventory may prove too much to bear. Mobile patrol is the solution. Mobile patrol deters crime, acts as a rapid response to emergencies, and is a cost-effective security solution.
1. Mobile Patrol is a Visible Deterrent to Criminal Behaviour
Theft and vandalism are driven by opportunity. Without a visible security presence, criminals will seize the opportunity. This is particularly true of buildings and properties left unguarded at night or over the weekends. Most businesses are shuttered because of COVID-19, and this has increased break-ins. Mobile patrol is a great way to fill this gap in coverage.
A visible security presence deters criminal behaviour. Available 24/7, 365 days a year, mobile patrols communicate that your property has protective eyes on it.
2. Respond Quickly to Emergencies
Mobile patrol security is there when you can’t be. Patrol is conducted at random intervals along predetermined routes. If an alarm sounds, you can count on us to respond quickly. You will have peace of mind knowing that your security team is able to respond to any kind of security incident. This is also helpful for weather-related emergencies. All real-time updates and incident reports will be communicated to you, so you will always be aware of what’s going on. Moreover, mobile patrol staff can provide on-site support for tasks when no other staff are available.
3. Cost-Effective Solutions to Fit Your Budget
While security cameras are a powerful tool, there are always blind spots. A set of eyes and ears goes a long way. Mobile patrol is a great security solution if you don’t need a full-time keep watch guard or stationed guards are out of your budget. It’s one of the most budget-friendly and effective security services available. This is especially true for larger properties such as construction sites or large warehouse properties. Mobile patrol efficiently covers larger premises.
Find the Right Fit for Your Needs
As we discussed in last week’s blog, it’s important to find the right security company to fit your needs. Find a mobile patrol service that will tailor security solutions to the unique demands of your property. Choose a company that is able to deliver quality solutions that fit your budget.
