Patrol and Alarm Response Services
Insecure premises are an open invitation to burglars, so every business should have at least one TRITON security patrol to ensure that your site is secure after staff have left for the day.
When carrying out building security checks, TRITON security guards regularly find:
- Doors that are open or unlocked
- Windows open
- Alarms not set
- Lights left switched on
- Machinery and equipment left switched on
- Heaters left switched on
- Vehicles left unlocked and even with the keys still in the ignition
Aside from the building security aspects, TRITON security patrols have found broken or leaking pipes and also smouldering ashes (for example caused by welding or other hot works) that are a serious fire risk. In these cases, the guard has been able to deal with the situation there and then, which has avoided costly damage to the buildings concerned.
Once your building is secure for the night, you have significantly reduced the likelihood that opportunist burglars will target your property by making it more difficult for them to get in. However, determined burglars may well still be interested in targeting you, so subsequent security patrol checks are important also.
After TRITON security patrols have completed the first check of your building and can be sure that all is well, they can then further visits during the night (or during the daytime over the weekend) to provide a further deterrent.
Security patrol checks are an excellent deterrent to burglars, vandals and arsonists because patrolled premises mean that a security guard could turn up at any time unannounced.
TRITON security patrols regularly find suspicious vehicles and persons around client’s premises and are experienced in dealing with offenders caught in the act.
Completion of National Certificates in Security is now a requirement for all patrol and response guards and the TRITON team is fully compliant in this regard. New Health & Safety measures are now part of daily security tasks and our guards are all involved in the drive to lift standards in the industry.
Because the NZ Police now no longer respond to burglar alarm activations, private security companies are now used to provide first line response, with subsequent attendance by police patrols if a break-in has been confirmed.
TRITON mobile security patrols treat alarm attendances as number one priority. Even if part-way through a patrol check of a site, they will stop what they are doing, deal with the alarm activation and return to complete the patrol check afterwards.
When an activation signal is received at the alarm monitoring centre, it is sent immediately by a secure text dispatching system to the nearest mobile patrol guard, who will in turn drive to your site without delay. Upon arrival, they will check for signs of any suspicious vehicles or persons in the area, and will then check your site for any signs of forced or attempted entry. Every attempt will be made to catch and detain any offenders found on site, with police being called immediately for assistance.
If a break-in has occurred, the guard can co-ordinate with an authorized keyholder, and tradesmen such as a glazier to secure the break-in.
