At the end of 2006 a new mobile guarding service department was created by merging the existing Monitoring and Control & quality departments.
Mobile guarding is actually a form of manned guarding service. It is a substitution of traditional and constant engagement of security officers, and it is performed once or few times a day, by pedestrian and vehicle patrols with verification at checkpoints (Tour Guard System).
Mobile guarding service includes three basic sub-services:
1. Patrol - visit to predefined sites and perimeters, security check and interior check of secured sites, locking/unlocking of sites, reporting on defective security devices, locks, fences etc.
2. Intervention – prompt reaction upon receipt of alarm signal from endangered site; check of the site exterior or interior; securing the site after the incident/accident in order to protect the evidence until Police arrival; in accordance with Law restrictions, restraining offenders until the Police arrive.
3. Escort – escorting cash or any other goods transportations in order to protect it from robbery, surprise attack, extortion etc.
Mobile Guarding goals:
- Preventive Protection – To deter potential intruders and vandals from endangering secured sites through random patrols
- Surprise Factor – To detect every defect or illegal activity during the patrol visit
- Efficiency – To intervene in the shortest possible time and to protect a property
- Flexibility – To meet specific clients’ requirements and provide optimum security
- Cost Efficiency – Compromise between security maximization and cost minimization
