Protecting Your Business During the COVID-19 Outbreak

The 5 Benefits of Hiring a Mobile Security Patrol

When considering security services, on-site security guards immediately come to mind for many people. However, it’s not always financially possible to have security guards on-site at all hours – and given the new safety protocols dictated by the COVID-19 pandemic, it isn’t always safe to do so. Instead, mobile security patrols may be the safest and most cost-efficient option for many businesses as they navigate the next few months. Here’s why:

1. Increased & Preventative Protection

Due to recent instructions from the Ontario government urging office closures or remote work, many business- or building owners are facing similar security issues with regards to leaving their buildings relatively empty. From vandalism to petty theft and beyond, empty buildings are often seen as an opportunity for criminals.

In order to deter criminals and prevent any security violations, mobile security patrols can monitor large portions of your property at regular intervals in order to maintain your presence on-site — even when you can’t be there yourself.

2. Enhanced Employee Safety

If you’re an essential business, maintaining your employee’s safety while on-site is a top priority. Whether it’s to ensure their safety in the office parking lot at night, protect your employees as they transport high-value goods, or to monitor work in high-risk areas, mobile security patrols offer a highly adaptable form of security so that you can provide the right amount of security at precisely the right time for you. Simply schedule your patrol for specific times and we’ll be there!

3. Immediate Emergency Response

A few seconds or minutes can make a world of difference in an emergency. Whether it be an alarm, medical emergency, fire, or a crime in progress, mobile security patrols are quick at responding to most emergency situations. Whether you’re an essential or a non-essential business, you’ll receive immediate action with a mobile security patrol.

4. Non-Contact Security Incident Reporting

In the event of a security incident, we’ll work on-site to develop a detailed report for your records, including photos, and provide you with the necessary documentation should you need to log the incident for company or police records. We’ll also liaise with emergency response as necessary to ensure as safe an outcome as possible for all involved. In order to maintain increased safety protocols and social distancing measures, we continue to provide our security reports electronically.

5. Safer, Independent Working Conditions for Guards

In order to keep your business safe, your security guards need to stay healthy.

In the wake of local Coronavirus outbreaks, mobile security patrols offer a unique opportunity for businesses to balance the needs of their business with the health of their security providers. By using dedicated security vehicles, security personnel can work independently to monitor your business location — allowing them to maintain social distance and avoid additional sources of infection.
