A Mobile Patrol is a highly visible security patrol conducted by a Security Industry Authority (SIA) trained Mobile Security Officer, each officer is fully licensed and equipped with full uniform & PPE. The Mobile Patrol Officer travels between multiple client’s sites throughout each shift, ensuring physical presence is provided externally and internally. All Mobile Security Officers go through rigorous training to ensure they are fully compliant with legislation, health & safety, site instructions and other client requests.
Many large businesses, industrial estates, private properties, schools, councils, NHS facilities, retail stores and motor trade companies benefit from Mobile Security Patrols. Costing a fraction of a fixed security officer’s cost but providing an adequately similar presence ensuring security is not compromised.
The client’s site is patrolled and protected; we also utilise an assigned tagged checkpoint system. Tagged checkpoints are areas of significant or high risk which need to be checked thoroughly, usually situated around perimeter fencing, entrances to buildings or even in internal locations. Tagged checkpoints allow each client to follow up on patrols, which can be tracked live via GPS tracking. Alongside this, each vehicle is also equipped with a GPS tracker to confirm the officer’s location, arrival time and exit time from the site. This also records officer’s performance ensuring they are abiding to speed limits and travel advice, encouraging the most economical route to factor in our environmental policy as well as comply with our health and wellbeing measures.
Each site's patrol is usually conducted at random or fixed timings to deter or prevent attempted break-ins, trespassers, or risks to the public. This process provides an excellent visual deterrent whilst remaining cost-effective, ensuring client's sites are always safe and secure. Mobile Patrol reports with any incidents etc are made available to customers on a frequency that the customer would prefer. This can be daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.

Mobile Patrol and Lock / Unlock or Keyholding Services
For reassurance and reduced risk around key management and key movement, businesses can choose to combine their Mobile Patrol service with Keyholding and Alarm Response or Lock and Unlock services.
Keyholding services can help to reduce insurance costs and ensure businesses are meeting their legal responsibilities to lone workers on-site and provide a rapid response to requests out of hours. Keyholding services remove the need for a designated member of staff which isn’t always practical due to risks, role changes and leavers, whereas an appointed security company can service the business in the long-term.
Lock and Unlock Services provide a similar service to keyholding with the additional benefit of Unlocking or Locking of your premises at a preferred time. This ensures your site is professionally locked or unlocked to meet insurance and site requirements.
In combination with the Mobile Patrol Checkpoint Tagging System, as security personnel carries out the end of day processes including turning off lights, securing internal rooms, shutting down heating or cooling systems and locking gates, each point is scanned and a detailed report generated. Security guards will also carry out internal mobile patrol services including checking fire doors, windows and exits, removing hazards and ensuring there are no further members of staff in the building prior to locking up.
