If you have a large area to protect, you likely utilize multiple security measures to ensure everyone’s safety. In these cases, there’s just too much square footage to entrust only one measure of security. This blog walks you through the advantages of adding a cost-effective mobile patrol unit and mobile stops to your business security measures!
What is Mobile Patrol & Where Is It Useful?
If your business is in need of in-person protection but doesn’t have the budget for a 24/7 security guard, mobile patrol is a great option. Trained, uniformed security officers attend to your property, large or small, throughout the day and night. Typically, business with a lot of square footage utilize these services but liquor stores and other small businesses have also found a need for the added layer of protection.
- Car dealerships
- College, medical and corporate campuses
- Construction sites
- Apartment complexes and condominiums
- Farms and solar farms
- Hotels, malls and strip malls
- Large manufacturing facilities
Visible + Trained + Uniformed Security Officers
With marked vehicles and trained, uniformed security officers patrolling, your campus has added peace of mind with visible, live security. This security measure helps prevent crimes before they happen and also lends well to checking on employees in person. Consider the ability to offer security escorts to your staff as a job perk!
Our mobile patrol officers go through intensive training and specialize in theft control, fire prevention, employee welfare and safety awareness but don’t come at the price of a 24/7 security guard. Combined with your business security system, you have a multifaceted security system in place.
24/7 Accessibility + Alarm Response + Mobility
Mobile patrol officers have 24-hour dispatching capabilities, enabling them to rapidly respond to threatening situations (or sounding security alarms) on and around your property. And because you have the ability to schedule officers to be present throughout the day and night, you don’t have to worry about the graveyard shift any more than you do the day shift. Moreover, you’re not limited to a finite location; if the people and things you want to secure and protect are located off-site, a remote job site, for example, we’ll come to you!

Electronic Communications & Reporting
Per Mar’s mobile patrol officers utilize SecurePatrol, our guard force management platform, which easily allows for checkpoint tour, GPS tracking, incident reporting, real-time alerts and accountability.
