Protect your empty premises with static security guards or mobile patrols
As the second national lockdown comes to an end many businesses are still advising their staff to work from home, which can mean buildings and premises are left empty for extended periods of time. And we all know that an empty building is a vulnerable building. To combat theft and break-ins at commercial properties we have been working with our sister company, Stage Security, to help businesses secure and make safe their empty buildings when left empty.
Mobile security patrols are becoming an increasingly popular and effective way of securing a business premises. The advantage of having a physical and responsive presence can help to deter criminal activity more than a security camera or alarm can, which can often be avoided or disabled.

Mobile patrols are a great way to have spot checks throughout the day as well as during the evening when thieves like to work under the cover of darkness. Mobile patrols are also a more cost-effective alternative to having 24-hour manned or static guards on site.
During mobile patrols, our trained security guards will attend your site and walk around the entire premises while checking entrances, exits and ensuring there are no signs of activity or any unauthorised presence where there shouldn’t be. Each spot check and patrol can be tailored to the individual site and the requirements of the customer.
For the safety of our security guards, we always ensure they are equipped with a lone working device that tracks their movement and time-on-site, providing accountability and reliability of the contracted service. We can also provide reports to our clients that include this data to show when our guards were on site checking their facilities.
Our clients have full control over when our mobile patrols are on-site and can adjust the number of visits each day, as well as specifying whether our patrols happen during the day or throughout the evening.
Another fantastic benefit of our mobile patrols is the flexibility they offer. Our clients have full control over when our mobile patrols are on-site and can adjust the number of visits each day, as well as specifying whether our patrols happen during the day or throughout the evening. For instance, some of the higher risk sites that we manage have up to seven visits during the daytime. Having such flexibility over your security schedule makes it much harder for opportunist thieves to forecast and predict any patrol routines.
Our mobile patrols are a great option for individual sites or businesses that own and operate multiple companies and premises. Our security guards provide patrols around the clock, so if your business operates 24 hours a day and you have employees working night shifts, they may feel somewhat vulnerable to potential unwanted activity. Our mobile patrols offer peace of mind to businesses and employees as you can be assured that there is a security presence either on-site or available as a rapid-response unit if an alarm is triggered.
If you feel this is something which would benefit your premises, contact us to discuss your concerns with our expert security team who would be more than happy to visit your premises and provide a detailed report on how we can secure your site, and keep your business safe from unauthorised activity.
