Courtesy Patrol

The ideal situation for any company or association is to have an on-site security officer who can protect their assets—employees, clients, tenants, and property.  However, having an on-site security officer is not always possible because of budget constraints.  In such cases, companies and associations can rely on security courtesy patrol services to deter criminal activity.

At EKS Security Inc., we work with its clients' budgets and offer them several levels of security coverage.  The coverage can range from a full time armed security officer to a couple of hours of courtesy patrol services.  Our patrol services are design to provide a cost effective solution that helps our clients sustain a security presence.  To help strengthen the overall security of our clients' premises, we offer site surveys.

  Members of our management team conduct all site surveys.  During a site survey, we identify the areas that may be vulnerable and make recommendations to the client.  Those recommendations improve the overall security of the premises because they help mitigate risk.

Our courtesy patrol officers can (among other things):

  • lock common areas
  • check for safety hazards—faulty lighting, landscape flooding, fire hazards, etc.
  • respond to alarms—security, fire and panic alarms
  • respond to suspicious activity
  • respond to noise complaints
  • conduct parking lot inspections
  • issue notices to parking violators
  • contact tow services when authorized
  • check areas of concern (using strategically position  Detex sensors)

We also offer our clients the peace of mind that our security patrol officers are conducting patrols at their sites. We strategically install Detex sensors at our clients' premises. When security patrol officers perform walkthroughs of the premises, they use their Detex readers to make contact with the Detex sensors; then, the Detex reader records the time and date-stamps each sensor. Detex devices ensure that our officers make all appointed rounds at the prescribed times, and enable verification and accountability for the officers' movements.

In order to respond to calls more efficiently, we equipped our patrol vehicles with GPS tracking systems. The GPS tracking systems allows for better dispatching times of security patrol officers and helps us give a more accurate ETA. It is this added value approach that distinguishes us from other security companies.
