What Are the Different Types of Patrols?
Generally speaking, a patrol is simply the observation of a defined area for a specified amount of time. Depending on the area’s size, vehicles may be used to patrol a location; bikes, motorcycles, and cars may be employed for sites too large to reasonably traverse on foot. The most common type of patrol we offer at CDI Protection is the foot patrol, mainly because most businesses aren’t large enough to warrant any type of vehicle. College campuses and large schools may benefit from either a greater number of guards or guards that drive vehicles.
What Does a Patrol Look Like?
The main purpose of a security patrol, by foot or by vehicle, is to make security guards visible to potential threats. In addition to this major deterrent, trained guards are able to augment the local police force, act on certain crimes, inspect other aspects of your security system, and assist in emergency situations. At CDI Protection, we know the importance of variety and unpredictability from a patrol team; we train our guards to change up the routine just enough to dissuade planned break-ins.
