The Advantages Of Mobile Patrols vs Static Guarding

The Advantages Of Mobile Patrols vs Static Guarding

Mobile patrols are a
much underused physical method of security but one that can greatly
enhance protection of your premises, property, or business. In fact
they have a wide number of advantages over other forms of security
such as static guarding; So let’s take a closer look…

Mobile patrols can
cover ground quickly

Used in conjunction
with other forms of security, mobile patrols offer customers an
effective and immediate response. If and when an alarm is raised,
roving patrols can get to the scene of the event quickly, giving the
perpetrators less time to escape. In addition if your business
premises is spread out over a wide area such as a farm or large-scale
construction area, then mobile patrols have the ability to cover the
whole area fast.

Mobile patrols can
carry out a wide range of checks

While other security
practices such as static guarding will deal with security checking
inside the confines of a premises, mobile patrols can carry out a
wider range of external checks. This is great for places that won’t
necessarily be picked up by CCTV, such as checking for signs of
forced entry on perimeter fencing, checking for signs of graffiti or
vandalism, or looking out for any suspicious activity within the
vicinity of the premises.

Mobile patrols
create a level of uncertainty for criminals

Perhaps the biggest
advantage of mobile patrols over static guarding that they create a
level of uncertainty for any criminal looking to commit an offence.
Even for the most persistent of criminals who aren’t put off by the
presence of static guards, they may think twice about burglary on a
premises with a visible mobile patrol. Because of the random nature
of the patrol, the perpetrator will never know how often the patrol
occurs and more importantly, where they’re going to be at any given
time. The ability to chop and change routes and the frequency of
those routes is perhaps one of the biggest pluses.

Mobile patrols are
cost effective

If you feel that you
need security to protect your property, premises, or business but are
on a tight budget then in this respect mobile patrols offer a cost
effective solution. Unlike on-site static guards who are paid to be
there for the duration of their shift, mobile patrol companies will
only charge you for the time they spend patrolling your premises. The
frequency of how often they do this is up to the customer and of
course their budget. As some security presence is better than no
security at all, mobile patrols offer an affordable way for
businesses to garner some level of physical security protection.
