Can mobile patrols make a difference to your business security?

After a long day of work, the only thing on your mind is to lock up and go home without having to worry about work until the next day. This, unfortunately, may not always be the case. There will often be security measures se…

Security Guarding Birmingham

Some people think of security guards as hardmen enforcers in the mould of Vinnie Jones or Lenny Mclean – the sort of blokes you never mess otherwise you get a slap. While most security guards are required to have a certain level of fitness and physical presence, they’re also selected to an entirely different set of criteria. If you think you have what it takes, could you say you tick all the boxes below?

Patience
Arguably the most important attribute of any good security guard is patience. Our security guards understand that for 364 days of the year, a guard’s job is to simply stand watch over an empty property, but on the one day that they may be called into action, you’ll be grateful for their presence. Security guards need to be able to patiently observe a vacant property for long periods of time, without getting distracted or switching off. It can be a very boring job, but there’s no room for complacency in this profession. Over an uneventful shift the temptation may be there to put your feet up, watch telly or even catch 40 winks – and no security guard worth his salt should ever succumb to these temptations.

Vigilant
It’s no good having a patient security guard on site at all times if they miss the incidents they’re employed to prevent. Security guards are intended to be your eyes and ears on the ground; there to vigilantly patrol your property when you can’t be present. Security guards who switch off aren’t doing their jobs properly – constant vigilance is necessary or you risk missing a potentially crucial piece of information.

Confidence
No-one reasonably expects a security guards to take on the world, but a certain level of confidence is absolutely necessary. To confront potential trespassers or suspicious individuals is a must – shy types have no place in the security industry.  Guards must routinely deal with the general public, the police and their employers, so a professional manner and the ability to communicate information accurately and effectively is essential in this industry. Security guards need the confidence in their own abilities to gauge difficult situations and make the right call every time as, make no mistake, criminals will exploit hesitancy.

Observational skills
While the security guard’s job occasionally involves confrontation, for the most part it focuses around observation instead. Security guards need to monitor their territory constantly.  Security guards represent a more effective deterrent than any other security solution around.

Security guards require numerous attributes in order to perform their jobs clinically and professionally, but they may not be the attributes you’d have expected at first.

Key Holding and Alarm Response

Businesses and homes are potentially at risk of theft or vandalism, even with the latest technology of alarm systems installed.

Key holding services are an ideal solution for homes and organisations to offer complete peace of mind for your property and its safety. Our key holding team will meet with you for a brief discussion of your premises and current alarm system prior to agreeing on any specifics.

After the meeting, we will collect any keys from yourselves and test those keys prior to both parties signing a Key Receipt form. We will then code and store the keys in our secure control room – the only time the seal will be broken will be if we need to attend your property for an alarmed response.

After our officers have attended your premises upon alarm activation, you will receive a documentation of a visit.

Key holding and alarm response is perfect for eliminating any potential risk to yourself, or if you are in an office environment, protect your staff with a prompt and efficient response.

What exactly is property maintenance?

Property maintenance is one of the services we provide which involves the overall upkeep of a facility and its surrounding property.

This could vary from the maintenance of facilities that lease space, such as an apartment complex, rented house, or office building.
It is possible that if the owner of the facility is a company, they will often hire a property manager to maintain one or more of their properties, however, if the owner is an individual, it is possible they may decide to handle all of the responsibilities themselves.

Is it possible your security guard is sleeping on the job?

Keeping a property safe and secure is of the utmost importance, something 3000 Property Services understand.

The visibility of a manned guard outside a premises is enough of a deterrent against any possible threats to a property.
Manned guards sent to a property will be fully-trained and experienced individuals that are dedicated to their jobs – although there may be that possible string of doubt in your mind as to whether your guards are doing their job and not spending their time napping or reading a book.

To ensure this isn’t a recurring issue, 3000 Property Services have a way of making sure our hired guards are constantly engaged and alert in their task, using GuardSafe.

Lock and Alarm

Here at 3000 property services, we can give you appropriately trained and vetted security officers to patrol, lock and alarm the premises at any specified time.

Our staff follow the correct procedures to ensure that is required by the insurance company. Although no security device is completely burglar-proof, the most common theft around the globe is opportunist thefts, which account for 98% of general thefts. What a lock and alarm system can do, is deter opportunist thieves, because their selected targets are commonly easy and vulnerable, so the possessions that are stored with a lock alarm will be ignored, as items that are not secured will seem more appealing. Again, an opportunist thief is more likely to flee at the sound of an alarm, a fact that is constantly being mentioned by police officers and security consultants around the world.
