On the Beat will provide a range of services for its members. Initially the focus will be on establishing a mobile patrol and response service. Thereafter, the intention is offer home security upgrades, key holding and significantly discounted home insurance.
This is a vehicle based patrol with one experienced, professional and motivated Security Officer. There will be a designated patrol area with a variety of routes.
Our service is based on three principles:
Operating between 6pm and 6am, the Security Officer will provide a highly visible yet randomised deterrent. The patrol should pass your property every 60-90 minutes.
Members will be able to contact the Security Officer directly by telephone. Small patrol areas mean the Security Officer is never far away and should provide support in approximately 3-4 minutes.
We have teamed up with Capstar, who employ former military personnel to act as our Security Officers. They are all SIA (Security Industry Authority) accredited, fully insured, monitored and background checked. They are courteous yet robust when required.
