Security Patrol Services


The PERFECT Patrol is a 4-Factor combination to provide the very best patrol for every single account every patrol.  As each and every account has different needs and requirements.

The PERFECT Patrol adapts to exceed every client’s expectations.   The PERFECT Patrol includes services such as slow moving motor patrols, hard checking entrance doors, performing light audits, contacting people on location, reporting all observations while being tracked through GPS.  Other companies offer vehicle patrols, community patrols and courtesy patrols for less, but only First Response™ can provide The PERFECT Patrol.

The PERFECT Patrol is a 4-factor combination of the following:

  1. Deterrence: Every vehicle is a white, late model, highly visible patrol vehicles using corner to corner reflective stickering for increased visibility. Each vehicle is fully equipped with interior mounted emergency lighting, an adjustable spotlight, first aid kits, flares, and radio communications with our 24-hour dispatch center.   Our competitions vehicle cannot match the level of professionalism and visual deterrence than our vehicles provide.
  2. Technique: With PERFECT Patrol comes the possibility of using a combination of security techniques during our patrols.  We have developed an entire proprietary procedure to be performed on each and every patrol we provide. This includes looking and listening for items our of place, suspicious activity as well as observing our surroundings as all times.  Sometimes our techniques may include double-back patrols, foot patrols, etc.  We will apply “security” to everything we do.
  3. Documentation: Each report is a detailed account of who and what our professionally trained officers observe while on location as well as what they did and why they did it. This includes light audits, gathering of people, suspicious activity, etc.
  4. Technology: Through our patrol tracking processes, we are able to confirm that our officers were on location and for how long. This technology removes the often “blinders” created for Officers who are trained to locate and touch “buttons” with a wand or touch probe.  Each Officer is reviewed weekly for accuracy to ensure we are providing the services we are contracted for.

As great as all 4 of the above factors are, they would not be possible if it was not for our Higher Standards Hiring practice to find the Right People and our proprietary First Response™ Officer Training Program to train all officers in the items above and so much more.

You can have a regular patrol by the competition for cheaper, or you could have The PERFECT Patrol by First Response™.
