Property crime happens in minutes, not hours. An experienced thief can smash and grab goods while the alarm system is still sounding. Potentially embarrassing graffiti tags that can send the wrong message about your business take even less time. Business security depends on rapid alarm response, with guards swooping in as quickly as the proverbial thief in the night.
Rapid alarm response security measures are a specialty of Imperial Security, which has been in business since 1993. It now serves a full range of organizations in the commercial and institutional sectors, and has demonstrated its ability to respond promptly to incidents whether at a single location or across an entire campus of properties. The result is an unparalleled reputation for protecting the interests of clients, both in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia and the cities of Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta.
Working the frontline are the rapid alarm response guards who provide 24-hour foot patrols. Imperial Security’s guards have completed government-approved training courses that meet provincial licensing standards, and they often have years of experience.
This ensures they are both familiar with the strengths and vulnerabilities of properties, making them more responsive to threats. Guards are also armed with a mobile reporting app, and patrol vehicles have the latest technology required to ensure prompt dispatch when incidents occur. The nearest vehicle often arrives while perpetrators are still present on site, meaning easier detection and reduced losses. Dash-cams also let vehicles record arrival and security guard engagement with suspects, ensuring thorough documentation of all incidents.
An added benefit of its patrol vehicles is high-profile branding that provides a deterrent to property crime before it happens. The sight of an Imperial Security patrol vehicle signals to would-be criminals that they’re being watched, reducing the risk that crime will occur. This is especially valuable to clients with large-scale properties that are beyond the means of a single foot patrol to cover in a timely manner.
Clients can check the speed of security guard response through online reporting tools that track mobile patrols and individual guards throughout each shift. The frequency with which patrols visit specific locations can also pinpoint where patrols may need to enhance surveillance and defenses.
Imperial Security regularly discusses security arrangements with clients and should gaps in the armour appear, it will adapt and even develop new tools that ensure rapid response, security improvements and overall client satisfaction. Continuous improvement of its rapid alarm response security systems is critical to protecting the health, safety and security of clients, regardless of sector.
