Here at Taybar Security, we provide a wide range of security services for all manner of businesses – from concierge security in hotels to door supervisors for event and entertainment venues – but one of our most popular and comprehensive services comes in the form of static security.
Although the name suggests that security guards will be deployed to one area and not move, static security is actually an exhaustive service that offers some of the best protection for your business. Below, we will highlight some of the key static security guard duties and why static security is an important consideration for your business.
What is Static Security?
First, it’s beneficial to understand exactly what static security is. The team at Taybar Security have been providing static security services to businesses across the west midlands for more than 20 years, during which time we’ve refined the duties of our officers so that the service we provide is as comprehensive and efficient as possible.
Our static security guards are assigned to a specific location – be it a warehouse, office block or showroom – and once there, they patrol the area to identify any threats such as antisocial behaviour, theft, vandalism or violence.
Static security guards, also called site security officers, are commonly situated in gatehouses or control rooms, but they can be posted elsewhere within your premises depending on your needs and requirements.
Static Security vs Mobile Security
Oftentimes, people use the terms ‘static security’ and ‘mobile security’ interchangeably, but they are two different types of service. Static guards typically follow a strict patrol route, whereas mobile patrol officers cover a wider area. It’s common for mobile security to be combined with other services like keyholding and alarm response.
Benefits of Static Security
For any type of property or premises, security is a must. At the very least, CCTV is a necessity, and floodlights and alarms should also be considered as standard. For some properties, this might not be sufficient and an extra layer of protection will be required. Examples include premises with a lot of assets inside and vacant properties, but almost every type of property can benefit from static security.
The first reason static security is beneficial is that it provides a visual deterrent. Oftentimes, thieves and criminals will be experienced and may know how to get around alarms and cameras, but doubling up your security efforts with a manned guard is typically enough to deter criminals.
Opportunist criminals are rare, with most observing properties from a distance for a period of time to ascertain certain routines and patterns. Doing this allows them to highlight weak spots or times at which they could potentially successfully strike and cause damage. Our static security guards are experts in their field and are knowledgeable on how criminals operate. As a result, they will undertake their patrol duties at sporadic intervals so that no clear pattern can be identified, further deterring criminals.
In addition to prevention, a major benefit for you as a property owner is that you will have peace of mind that you have protected your premises. There is no need to worry about coming in on a morning to find damage, nor do you need to think about how you and your team might deal with potential confrontation or antisocial behaviour. This means both you and your employees can focus on what matters most, safe in the knowledge that Taybar Security will keep you, your assets and personnel safe and protected at all times.
