Our mobile security patrols are conducted in liveried vehicles, satellite tracked, fully equipped with communications and driven by our fully trained SIA licensed guards. They also wear highly recognisable uniforms and prove to be a constant, high profile and effective deterrent.
Our vehicles are busy on the estates we protect. Their patrol routes are frequent and random; therefore timings are completely unpredictable.
Our guards visit each of our clients' premises and undertake an agreed check of access points, perimeters, vehicles and any other areas that require attention.
Our mobile security patrols respond to our clients' intruder alarm activations and other external alarm activations "generally" within a couple of minutes. This is achievable because each mobile patrol is given a specific, dedicated patrol area, usually of no more than one and a half square miles.
We carry out mobile patrols, incorporating keyholding services, close to the estates we protect. However, Security 2000 Ltd prides itself in responding to alarm activations on our estates within a matter of minutes. Therefore, our clients who are not within an estate we protect, must be close enough for us to provide a reasonable response time.
We would never agree to an arrangement where we felt our response time to premises off one of our estates, was more than 15 minutes. This is nearly 3 times faster than the approved industry standard and in reality this is even more rapid than the actual response times of our competitors. If our response times were longer, this would detract from the excellent service we offer to all our clients and would reduce the unusually high standards Security 2000 Ltd aspires to.
Our guards are all members of the SIA. They are fully licensed, trained and regulated in accordance with the SIA regulations. Our guards are appointed following rigorous screening, police and reference checks. Once appointed they are given thorough hands on security training.
When on a static site our guards are also given full on-site training in compliance with the client’s specific instructions. This provides our clients with peace of mind knowing that their property is in safe hands. We provide our clients with guards capable of dealing with any situation professionally, honestly and with tact and diplomacy.
We are able to provide manned guarding services on a temporary or permanent basis for the following:-
- Construction Sites
- Vacant Premises
- Gatehouse/Access Control Duties
- Office Block/Business Reception Security
- Static/Sentry Duty
- Lone Worker/Workforce Protection
This service incorporates a two-fold benefit: -
Responding to Alarm Activations
Being called out to an alarm activation at 3 o’clock in the morning is not a pleasant experience for you or your colleagues. Your sleep has been disturbed, you have to get up, get dressed, jump in your car and drive to your business premises.
Apart from the obvious sleep deprivation and inconvenience, you are alone and driving to your business premises not knowing whether you are on your way to a break-in, or a false alarm. Not a pleasant feeling at all!
By employing Security 2000 Ltd as your designated number one keyholder, your alarm monitors will contact our control room in the event of an alarm activation. We immediately dispatch our area mobile security patrol, who will be there within minutes. On arrival they would assess the situation and deal with any event in line with your instructions. In the event of an emergency a back-up response team can be dispatched to provide support for the Security Guard. The intensive training our security guards receive ensures that we are able to deal with any emergency situation that arises.
In the event of an alarm activation we would only contact you if there is an issue, or act in line with your instructions. This will give you the peace of mind that your premises are being protected and that you and/or your staff are not called out in the middle of the night, placed in any physical danger, deprived of sleep or inconvenienced.
Out of Hours Deliveries/Collections
Some of our clients quite often have a delivery or a collection that has to be arranged outside normal working hours. Being your keyholder, Security 2000 Ltd can open up your premises and supervise the delivery or collection and then ensure your premises are secured afterwards. This would mean that you, or your staff, would not have to remain at work, or return to work to supervise the delivery or collection. You would not have to wait for their arrival when they are late, or miss them because they were too early. You would not have to pay overtime, or give time off in lieu. You would not have to be concerned for your, or your staff’s welfare being at the premises as a lone worker out of hours.
Security 2000 Ltd does not supply or install your normal intruder alarm systems, there are plenty of excellent companies out there for that! But sometimes it is necessary to add to your existing security systems to enhance the protection of your property.
We are able to supply and install a detector system that warns our mobile and static security guards of a possible intrusion, either via a radio transmission or a smart telephone call. This instigates an instant response.
Whether you need to protect external property such as a fleet of vehicles, fuel tanks, equipment, plant, etc. Or you have personnel, high value stock, intellectual property or electronic systems internally; Security 2000 Ltd can supply and install an alarm detector system to suit your requirements.
Following a ‘no obligation’ survey of your property, if necessary, we would be able to recommend a cost effective security system suitable for your requirements. Security 2000 Ltd have installed these systems in and around the communal areas within all the estates we protect. Detectors strategically placed at the entrance to footpaths, along fence-lines and no-through roads, provide hundreds of invisible beams warning our security guards immediately a beam is broken. This has proven to be a massive aid to our security service on each estate we protect. They can be compared to an extra hundred guards on sentinel duty.
Throughout the estates we protect, our security bases are strategically placed so our security guards can easily see the movement on and off of the estates. All of these cabins are equipped with CCTV cameras and monitoring equipment that records the movement of passing persons and vehicles.
This is not only a warning, but a huge deterrent to any of the more unsavoury characters within our communities that may stray onto the estates we protect. Recording 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, this has proved to be a very successful tool in preventing crime and also detecting crime on the rare occasion that it has occurred. On the odd occasion, we have also been able to clear up an ambiguity in relation to a road traffic accident!
