June 2021 - NPB Security | Perth Security Guards, Mobile Patrol and Crowd Control

A night in the life of a Mobile Patrol

As the sun sets, many have finished work for the day. It’s a different story for NPB Security guards working on our mobile patrols.

Using a tank of fuel to travel over 500kms, an evening with NPB is not what you may expect from a traditional security guard, but every night brings with it a new challenge or experience for our staff.

Mobile Patrol Site Checks

NPB Security conduct regular after-hours site checks for a wide range of clients, primarily to discourage criminal activity.

Random perimeter checks sometimes uncover trespassers, damage to fences or gates that have accidentally been left unlocked.

Alarm Responses

Our mobile patrols provide monitoring and rapid response to alarms triggered in the Perth Metro area. We’ve responded to countless alarms on client machinery, with fridges being the most common as many of the pubs and theme parks that we service have alarms attached to their fridges. Over the years we have saved thousands of dollar’s worth of stock that would have gone bad without our monitoring and response.

We also oversee some of the fridges that contain flu vaccines, regularly checking them to ensure they continuously operate correctly during the night.

Community-based Patrols

NPB’s highly visible mobile patrols operate in local suburbs and communities as requested by local government and land developers. These patrols provide peace of mind to community members that there is a security presence keeping an eye on the neighbourhood. This discourages antisocial behaviour and ensures police presence is quickly summoned should any incident get out of hand.

After Hours Security Services

NPB Security provides support to a number of hotels across Perth who don’t have a 24-hour reception service. Noise complaints, broken or lost keys and patrons accidently locked out of their rooms are a common occurrence for the NPB team working on these sites.

Welfare Checks

NPB guards conduct welfare checks on employees and contractors working alone or after hours to ensure their wellbeing and safety on the job. They check and document that employees are on site, view staff passes and report back to the client the next morning through our digital reporting system. For those working alone, the NPB guards will stop in regularly, and check that the workers are okay.

Safe with Us

NPB provides our clients with access to live GPS tracking of our guards, plus in-car and on-person video cameras for every patrol.

Our trusted staff attend to your needs while providing you with the opportunity to track our vehicles and personnel by route map and video. Real-time digital reports are sent to you to keep you updated on any security incidents, maintenance or safety information as it occurs.

Mobile patrols offer our clients peace of mind. We ensure your staff feel safe at night by conducting welfare checks, confirm your equipment is functioning as it should be via regular site checks, provide timely responses to alarms and and deter theft, damage and graffiti with the presence of our highly visible vehicles and skilled security personnel.


NPB Security celebrates partnership with Indigenous-owned business for Reconciliation Week

Dream Time Game

NPB Security were proud to work at Optus Stadium over weekend when Perth hosted the AFL’s highly anticipated Dreamtime match in the Sir Doug Nicholls round.

The annual match recognises and celebrates First Nations players and culture and falls in National Reconciliation week. It marks a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how we can contribute to achieving reconciliation in our country.

To mark the occasion NPB engaged Australia’s largest Indigenous-owned workplace supplier, Kulbardi, to design and create a lanyard for their guards, featuring an indigenous design.

Kulbardi have supplied our uniforms for several years, so it was a great opportunity to recognise our long-term partnership and a chance for NPB to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land

The image on the lanyard features black and white elements coming together on the Earth.

It’s a small gesture, but one which encourages our staff to have positive conversations about reconciliation.

We are proud to work with Australian company Kulbardi, who reinvest part of their proceeds to their community investment fund. The Bibbulmun Fund invests in community projects and initiatives designed to support, encourage and inspire Indigenous communities across Australia.

Our staff really enjoyed working at the sold-out event, which has only left its Melbourne home once before.

It was fantastic to see our guards wearing the lanyards at Saturday’s game, and we expect to see a lot of them continuing to wear them after the weekend.
