3 benefits of around-the-clock Security Patrols at your construction site
Effective deterrent for theft & vandalism
The mere presence of a security guard can be a strong deterrent for vandalism and other criminal activity, particularly on large construction sites which tend to attract unwelcome visitors late at night.
But it’s not just guards who prevent intruders; the authoritative branding on patrol vehicles heightens the visibility of security and reminds would-be criminals someone is watching and willing to act at all times. Just as we all triple check our speed limit when we see a police car, those about to deface a property will think twice when they see a commanding security patrol car.
A mobile security guard maintaining a watchful eye over valuable infrastructure assets can be much more cost-effective than traditional stand-alone guards. Trusted with covering vast and complex sites, one patrol guard in a vehicle can equal up to 10 stand-alone guards.
In the long term, guards in patrol vehicles have the ability to cover more ground and can therefore save developers and construction companies substantial costs, especially when your provider is capable of giving you more than just security – such as taking care of calling for repairs if damage has occurred on your behalf so it can be resolved as soon as possible. NPB Security are also able to ensure all generators are running on site and can even refuel them, preventing the need for a member of your staff to be on site. We can also arrange shifts so guards are present at specific times to let contractors in and supervise as needed.

For example, NPB have a highly visible presence across a number of Peet Ltd’s development sites, offering a multi-pronged approach with mobile patrols and on the ground guards. Peet receive reports anytime damage or graffiti occurs at work sites, which include images, video and GPS location so it can be easily shared within the organisation. This style of reporting also allows Peet to inform the maintenance team easily to ensure damages can be rectified in a timely manner.
Overall, the mobile security patrols offer customers who have a large construction site or business peace of mind that someone is watching their assets and making sure staff are protected. As a result, there is mitigation of damage and the costs associated.
