There are many ways to deter crime, but hiring a dedicated Los Angeles security patrol service is one of the strongest ways to ensure your business, property, staff, and family are safe. Because of their physical presence, security officers ensure that potential criminals move along. At AEGIS Security & Investigations, we hire the best so you can, too. We supply both dedicated security officers and assigned security patrol vehicles to our clients in support of their goals.
There are a few central tenets of being a security officer that ensure they are the best option to combat crime at your location. Their duties and responsibilities include remaining visible in or around the property or person, remaining vigilant to be able to respond quickly and efficiently in an emergency, observing and reporting all activities (particularly those that are out of the normal), and enforcing safety policies from the client.
As highly visible individuals, security officers are able to communicate from their sheer presence that the area is under surveillance. While this may not be a 24-hour commitment, the hours that you have an officer walking the premises, watching the entrances or driving the perimeter signal to the community that the area is protected. This will deter trespassers and ensure the safety of those on the property.
Should an emergency or criminal activity occur, security officers are the first line of response. Say a small fire breaks out and the alarms go off throughout the property: it is the obligation of the security officer to locate that situation and call for help. A well-trained officer like those of AEGIS would also take steps to put the fire out and evacuate the area to the best of their ability, going above the call of duty. Additionally, a security officer has the right and the responsibility to ask trespassers to leave the property, place disorderly and unlawful perpetrators under citizen’s arrest, and take actions within their scope of certification to ensure the safety of the property or person.
Having security officers observe and report daily activity in addition to abnormal activities also enhances your protection. By hiring a person or team who quickly comes to know the regular schedule of a person or property, you allow them to easily identify irregular happenings that break the pattern. As such, the mission of security officers to observe and report exceptionally benefits the client.
Lastly, having a personnel on the premise who knows the rules of conduct in addition to basic criminal laws assures that people using the property stay safe. While the primary goal is to stop non-permitted access to a property or person, security officers are also able to ensure permitted guests are making the safest decisions.
