Outdoor security can provide additional safeguard to your company’s assets, as they add a visual deterrent and scale to your security requirement.
Why are we spending most of our budget on our internal security?
It can be harder to find and remove intruders once inside your building
In an ideal security plan, putting security into layers, has its benefits…
A security plan should have many barriers which the potential criminal has to overcome, each one getting stronger, the closer you get to the centre to provide greater protection to the target your assets, inside your building…
From this, you can see that the outdoor preventative measures is a fundamental part in making sure that a security strategy is as impenetrable as it possibly can be. What’s more is that, if designed correctly, your outdoor procedures can actually reduce the cost of your building security!
To introduce a fool proof security approach, you need work inside out…
Our D’s in perimeter security..
The first D’s aim is to deter the intruder from attempting to break in the first instance. From CCTV signs to fences and security lighting, these deterrents can cause a psychological battle within the potential intruder aiming that the possible activity never starts.
If the deterrent signs fails to stop the intruder’s activity, the second ‘D’ should alert you to any possible unauthorised breaks; the aim of these is to allow you to respond as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Although the Intruder may have ignored your deterrent signs, your detection methods has alerted you so that you can keep the unauthorized persons out; the aim at this stage is to deny unauthorised access while allowing authorised persons to enter the premises. Whether you have a manned security personnel, mobile patrol services or even a K9 unit in place at the main point of entry to your site.
Emergency services have been alerted at this point, so now, the next ‘D’ is your next process to slow down the intruder long enough that our security personnel can respond to the break in. Fences, gates, and locked windows and doors, can delay an intruder from breaking in to your building, however, surveillance cameras should also be used here to provide additional blocks and eyes securing your asset.
The final ‘D’, If the intruder isn’t giving up and looks like they might make it through, our final option is to defend your perimeter; here is for our security to apprehend the intruder and to escort them off your premises with the minimal amount of force or the required amount of force needed; or even to detain the intruder till emergency services arrive. Again, surveillance (CCTV or Body Cameras) should be used to record the situation and determine the effectiveness of the response.
Our outdoor perimeter security is absolutely essential to creating a strong and effective security solution. Not only does it adds greatly to a major deterrent, but it can also reduce the overall cost of multiple personnel located inside your building securing various entry points.
Sounds like a win-win to us!
