Why its important to have security patrols

Business owners work far too hard to lose stock and equipment through insecure buildings, insecure yards and gates left opened. Talbot Security can help offer peace of mind when you’re not around.

Talbot Security Group patrol vehicles are out on the road 24hours/7 days a week to help protect your business when you can’t be there. When you and your staff go home, you can be sure that your buildings, homes and work places are in good hands.

In addition to the protection of your buildings Talbot Security can also stop in and check the welfare of your staff, working over the night or at weekends. Customers and staff can rest at night, knowing all their assets are protected and secure 24/7. A visit to your premises by a trained mobile patrol officer is an extremely effective. All patrols to your premises are logged and digitally recorded and are carried out at irregular times so as not to create a noticeable pattern that could otherwise be exploited by a criminal element.

Commercial Patrols

Patrolling is the physical visit by a trained Security Officer to check that your site or premise is secure when your not around. 

Each patrol inspection is done randomly, and because our patrol cars have EROAD GPS tracking units in them, (a unique service point of difference), we can provide 100% clarity and openness when it comes to any auditing requirements of patrol checks.

Multiple TSG patrol vehicles are also utilised overnight. By having more than just a single patrol vehicle in action, patterns cannot be easily identified and countered.

Another benefit of multiple patrol vehicles operating is the fact that each client’s premises is not always checked by the same officer, thus eliminating complacency and boredom.

Patrols Help with the following

  • Doors found open or unlocked
  • Gates open and unlocked
  • Open windows
  • Vehicles unlocked, sometimes even with the keys still in the ignition
  • Alarms not set
  • Machinery and equipment still going
  • Lights and heaters on

Talbot Security Officers will lock doors, gates, and turn off lights so your site is locked down and secure. Once this is done we have reduced the likelihood that opportunist burglars will target your site.

If a break-in has occurred, every attempt will be made to catch offenders and the police will be called immediately for assistance.

Patrol checks are an excellent deterrent to burglars, vandals and arsonists.
