Australia is one of the safest countries in the world, however robbery and intrusion take place every single day. Do we want the worry about our assets being robbed? Probably not.
Often, we get help from technology to protect our assets from a theft or invasion. But there is no better deterrent than a real security guard or a security officer equipped with technology, experience and expertise.
Mobile patrol security officers provide peace of mind that our assets are safe and secure.
The quality of professional security services is highly important as the client is placing their trust on the officers to prevent any illegal activities taking place.
Here are the key responsibilities that make mobile patrol security officers crucial in protecting our assets:
|PATROL. INSPECT & MONITOR
|Mobile patrol security guards secure premises and personnel by patrolling property; monitoring surveillance equipment; and inspecting edifices, equipment, and access points; permitting or refusing entry. Rapid alarm response is crucial for desired outcomes.
|PREVENT LOSSES. REPORT & INFORM
|They prevent loss and damage by reporting nonconformities, informing violators of policies and procedures, and ultimately restraining trespassers.
|They control traffic by giving directions to drivers. Mobile patrol security officers investigate traffic accidents and aid drivers requiring assistance.
|Mobile patrol officers have all the rights to issue warnings, citations or detain individuals who commit offences. They must complete necessary reports of the circumstances.
|They make sure the equipment is operational by completing preventive maintenance requirements, following manufacturer’s instructions, troubleshooting, and calling for repairs.
|Security officers don’t wait for something to happen. They do preventative patrol inspections and proactively undertake security measures to prevent burglary, damage and other misbehavior.
|By complying with legal requirements, mobile patrol security officers preserve organisation’s stability and reputation.
Although we’ve mentioned seven key duties of a mobile patrol security officer, every premise has its own requirements and each situation is unique. Therefore, mobile patrol officers must adapt and perform adequate activities to ensure everyone and everything is safe and sound.
