Many neighborhoods across the country have homeowners’ associations, commonly referred to as an HOA. Your HOA can provide a large variety of services for your community. One service that your HOA may be considering is a residential security company. Here at Advanced Private Investigator & Security of Miami, FL we provide residential security. Today we are going to talk about what exactly residential security guards do and some benefits of having us provide this service in your community.
What are Residential Security Guard Services?
Let’s start by talking about what residential security guards do. Residential security guards are responsible for protecting the property and people in the neighborhood. What they do during their shift will vary depending on what your needs are.
Roving Security Patrolling Duties
Some properties have roving security guards that service multiple communities every day. These security officers will drive around to each assigned neighborhood multiple times each day. When people know that there is a security guard that drives through the neighborhood on a regular basis they are less likely to think about making questionable choices on the property. If we do see irregular activity we will stop and take care of it right away. Other communities hire residential security guards to work just one neighborhood. They might work at a clubhouse, golf course, or gated entrance. When you have guards at gated entrances it helps us track who is in your community at any given time besides the residents. Guests are aware that they are being monitored and are less likely to try anything illegal. Advanced Private Investigator & Security of Miami, FL can provide the exact service that you need in a residential security guard. We will thoroughly discuss your needs with you and come up with a plan that suits your community the very best.
Security Guard Duties & Responsibilities
No matter what kind of security package you choose, some of the responsibilities will be the same. It is our job to become familiar with the property we are guarding. We will know the habits and patterns of your neighborhood. This will help alert us to any behaviors that are out of the ordinary. The main reason that residential security guards are hired is to help keep the people that live in your community safe. Studies have shown that simply having security guards in your community decreases illegal activity such as theft, loitering, trespassing, and vandalism. Criminals see that there are security guards and realize that their job is going to be harder than originally anticipated. Frequently this realization makes them choose another community for their crime. Your community may have other types of security systems already set up on the property. When you combine a qualified guard with these systems, your community will be even more secure. We can make sure that your security systems are working properly at all times.
