Our uniformed, trained, and experienced security officers can be provided on a temporary basis with little advance notice, or on a long-term, contractual basis. All of our unarmed security officers are required to adhere to our strict standards concerning professionalism, pride in appearance, reliability, courtesy, knowledge of their specific responsibilities, and are closely supervised to ensure that those goals are maintained. All officers are background checked and drug tested, and are placed only on those posts for which they are qualified.
As a more cost-effective alternative to hourly security guard service, PGP offers Patrol Service, which provides for periodic inspections of your property by officers who cover one of many different patrol routes throughout the Houston area. These patrol officers will spot-check your property at various times throughout the day or night, and are available to perform customized tasks, such as opening/closing gates, checking doors, escorting employees to and from their cars, removing trespassers from your property, etc. All of our patrol officers have exhibited the ability to exercise appropriate judgment when handling various emergencies and unusual situations. They are all uniformed and drive distinctively-marked security vehicles.
Our 24-hour alarm response division works closely with your alarm system company to respond quickly to any alarm. Response officers are trained to determine the cause of the alarm, inspect the facility, secure the premises, reset the alarm, and notify the proper authorities as instructed by you, the client. We will even provide temporary emergency guard service in the event of a break-in, if necessary, so that you can rest easy, knowing that PGP has you covered.
Depending on your company’s needs, you may prefer an armed security officer. In some situations, it may be necessary to provide a show of force in order to deter criminal activity, and a well-trained, armed officer is a great way to achieve that goal. All of PGP’s armed officers have obtained their Texas Level III – Commissioned Security Officer License, and we require them to undergo further training in both security service and firearm use, in order to ensure they possess the skills necessary to make safe decisions in times of turmoil and uncertainty.
Sometimes, your company might require quick access to a security professional. The team, here at Professional Guard & Patrol, has perfected temporary guard service. We have officers on standby that can be at your jobsite within only a few hours of contacting PGP. So if you’re looking for an armed or unarmed guard on short notice, give us a call today.
