Our dispatchers work closely with: Field Supervisors and Emergency Services.
Using our real time GPS system, Dispatchers monitors all patrol vehicles as they move about; this is for officer safety and to ensure that all patrols are being done as requested and reported.
For safety and work quality, all field personnel report to dispatch every hour of their shift.
Continuous field supervision translates into quality service. Field supervisors and managers visit security personnel daily/nightly for quality service. They enforce policy, site procedure and deportment. Supervisors also liaise with patrons who may need assistance and deal with emergencies that may arise.
We will aim at working together to accomplish one goal: The protection and safety of the property, staff and information. We will learn, implement and enforce your site procedures as mandated. We will hold regular meetings to implement to review service and requirements.
