What We Do
The following is a small sample of the duties you could expect an ELITE Security Officer to handle while on your property, regardless if you have Mobile Patrol or a Standing/Site Officer:
We maintain a constant patrol of the property and perform a physical check of the doors and windows after the businesses' are closed. Numerous times, we have found doors unlocked or not locked properly. By making physical checks of the business, it assures the client that the security measures they already have in place are being fully utilized after the last employee leaves the business.
Lighting Inspections and Reports
Lighting reports are provided on a regular basis to assure the professional image your property demands. Proper lighting is often the most effective and efficient deterrent to crime in the professional's arsenal. Many properties are improperly illuminated, poorly maintained, and costly to operate. Proper lighting deters criminal activity, promotes safety, and reduces civil liability.
Incident Reports and Documentation
When an incident occurs on the property that may require criminal or civil action, proper documentation is essential. Often, quick and proper documentation reduces the chances of civil action being filed against you. In instances where a civil suit is filed, proper documentation is essential, and could make all the difference in the courtroom. We provide detailed reports and digital pictures of all incidents as requested by the Client. We maintain a record system to track the incidents that occur on your property to assist in planning and safety improvements. Additionally, we can also obtain reports from local law enforcement agencies for your review on your local area.
Illegally Parked Vehicles
