Are un-monitored cameras as effective as real-time surveillance?

Footage from an unmonitored security camera can be used as evidence of a crime that has been committed, but these types of cameras do virtually nothing to prevent crimes from happening. Real-time surveillance provides an unparalleled level of protection that can’t be matched with un-monitored security cameras. Unlike un-monitored cameras, real-time surveillance includes the element of human interaction, which can be a very strong crime deterrent.


Are security guards worth the money?

A security guard is better than no security protection at all, but the realities of having a security guard often fall far short of the expectations that you may have. Simply put, a security guard may have the human element that is needed for effective security protection, but he is unable to efficiently monitor and protect a property.

Sadly, many agencies that provide security guards require high fees from their clients, but they do not offer their employees a good living-wage. This often results in the hiring of employees who are not experienced, or do not have the necessary skills to provide comprehensive security protection. So while you are led to believe that you are paying for the services of a high-quality security guard, you are actually vulnerable to sub-par protection.

Other downsides to hiring a security guard include:

Security guards can be unreliable. It is not unheard of for a guard to leave during a shift, fall asleep on the job, or neglect to complete assigned duties.

One person can only see and hear so much; a security guard will often fail to collect information that is crucial to the protection of your property. Security reports may be hard to read, incomplete, or not done at all.

When you hire a security guard, you give them access to your entire property. You can’t control who he may invite onto your property while he is on duty.

Are vehicle patrol programs effective at preventing crime?

Much like hiring a security guard, a vehicle patrol program usually does not provide the results that you would expect in regards to keeping your property safe. A vehicle patrol, also commonly known as a courtesy patrol, is a reactive form of security protection that does very little to prevent crimes from happening.

Security agencies have two choices: they can either charge a client a very large amount for a patrol guard, or they assign one patrol guard to several different clients. Most agencies choose the second option. This results in a patrol guard who is often overwhelmed with the task of patrolling four or five properties each shift.

This security model presents numerous problems, which makes it an ineffective choice for preventing crime or keeping a property safe. On average, a patrol guard is only able to visit a property four or five times during a shift. Due to time constraints, a patrol guard usually only spends five minutes patrolling a property during each visit. That equals 25 minutes or less of active security patrol in a 10-12 hour period- definitely not enough time to meet your security needs. A security patrol is more likely to discover that a crime has already taken place; a practiced criminal will simply wait to strike until after he sees a patrol guard leave the property.
