What Texas Neighborhoods Need Mobile Patrol Services?

Business owners want maximum security for minimal cost. On site in person guards get costly quickly and in many situations may not be very useful. Mobile patrol services in which officers visit your property at strategic intervals to deter criminals and perform checks offer effective protection at a fraction of the cost of other professional security services. 

As a full service security company, Ranger Guard conducts mobile patrols in our clearly marked police style cruisers across Houston, Austin, and Dallas and many other cities, as well as many of our franchise locations across other states.

If your area is at high risk of crime contact us now to see if mobile patrol can help.

How Ranger Guard Mobile Patrol Works

Ranger Guard officers visit sites protected by mobile patrol several times over the course of a night. Due to the extra mobility provided by cars, when they’re not checking on your business, they’re patrolling another. This lets you split the cost with someone else, meaning mobile patrol can cost two or three times less than individualized around-the-clock protection. 

Security patrol service officers equipped with GPS physically check access points and parking areas then take photos and log their inspection using Ranger Guard’s high-tech tracking system. Customers can access their account at any time to verify patrols and see the officer’s daily reports. This information can be shared, where relevant, with law enforcement, lawyers, property managers or other staff. 

Ranger Guard hires as security guard patrol agents officers with military or law enforcement experience. Specialized aptitude tests, extensive background checks and rigorous drug testing ensure we hire only the best. We combine their specialized skills with training in:

  • anti-terrorism tactics
  • criminal law
  • defensive tactics
  • access control
  • patrol procedures
  • first aid/CPR

Supervisors are also trained data analysts, so they spot recurring safety problems and can recommend solutions to halt unauthorized activities. 

Deter Criminals and Monitor Properties on Demand

Deterrence is a key factor in reducing criminal activity. It can also lower your insurance premiums by an estimated 15-20%. One of the most effective ways to achieve deterrence is for officers in a highly visible clearly marked security car with bright lights to visit your property. These patrol services make random visits each night, so criminals are not able to monitor their schedule and plan accordingly. Since criminals never know when a security car will be arriving, they will be afraid to try anything. Roving patrols will either be armed or unarmed according to your preference.

Different situations require a different type of security. Many new security technology advances, including surveillance robots or cell phone apps that monitor neighborhood crime, can update you on suspicious activity. Yet there is no substitute for a guard on the ground who can monitor suspicious activity and conduct spot checks for break-ins, graffiti, vandalism, theft and other illegal activity or issue parking fines. Roving officers supply that in person support. 

Mobile patrol can also be hired in support of other security measures or as a backup option. Gated communities in particular can benefit from adding mobile security to their protection plans.

If you need a neighborhood security patrol for a specific day and time, you can simply download the Ranger Guard App to request the service in minutes. This app means clients can have security officers in mobile patrol units on duty where and when they are needed or as a rapid response, rather than having to worry about long-term commitments. Ranger Guard clients only pay for the services they need, making us the cost-efficient option to get the best security team.
