You can run but you can't hide!

A CCTV system is beneficial for businesses, such as banks, schools and even supermarkets. This is regardless of whether you have 100 or 200 employees. Below we have listed five reasons as to why you should invest in a CCTV surveillance system today.

  1. Feeling Secure
    If you worry about harassment, violence, fraud or any other crimes taking place in the workplace then CCTV may be a good idea. The cameras can help to reinforce proper behaviour in the workplace.
  2. The Footage is Valuable
    If a burglary or something negative may happen within the work environment, then the footage can be used as evidence. As well as being used to decipher what happened.
  3. Monitor
    CCTV is a 24-hour system that will allow you to keep your eyes on and around your business at any time. Not only allowing you to ensure that nothing untoward is happening but also monitoring your employees' activities. Thus, helping you to recognise and dismiss underperforming and unproductive employees.
  4. You can run, but you can't hide!
    It is impossible to hide from a CCTV camera system. It also allows the proprietor to monitor all of the vulnerable spots on your business premises.
  5. Deterrents
    Having cameras on the work premises can also be enough to deter thieves from breaking in. They know that is would make things harder for them and that they would get caught, hence stopping them in their tracks.

Can mobile patrols make a difference to your business security?

After a long day of work, the only thing on your mind is to lock up and go home without having to worry about work until the next day.
This, unfortunately, may not always be the case. There will often be security measures set up to fend off any trouble such as alarms and locked doors.
While these measures that are in place can prove successful for keeping out the undesirables, there are accomplished thieves that will be able to break into a premises, regardless of any measures that are in place. This issue can be dealt with by a mobile patrol.
Hiring a mobile patrolling is incredibly beneficial for your business' security measures; they will act as a physical deterrent on site against any potential thieves. Patrol can occur at any time during the day and the night, this is vital for a mobile patrol service as many thieves tend to monitor the activity of any patrols, however, because these patrols are likely to happen at different times throughout the day, a thief is less likely to know when the best time to break in would be.
Mobile patrol also plays a role in acting as a security presence within a local community also. Making sure that the public feels safe is important, along with any neighboring offices.
Choosing mobile patrols are a cost-effective security measure and presence which provides that peace of mind to leave for your home and feel safe.
3000 Security can offer that peace of mind, please visit our website for further information about our mobile patrolling service.

Alarm Services and Patrol Guards

With the ever increase in theft and burglaries today alarm services and especially businesses, patrol services are an absolute must. This article will tell you just why it's important to have these measures in place.

Alarm Services: Often reports of False alarms

With false alarms being raised often due to triggered alarms or false neighbour reports, this can add up to endless amounts of charges by the responding Police. So how can you combat this?
Alarm systems will always do the job they're meant to do if triggered but without the aid of a guard/patrol response you'll be unable to detect if it was a false or real alarm. This is where security officers or even manned guards are usually brought in.

Security Guards and Manned Guarding

Security Officers, Manned Guards and security patrol units have been in place for many years to ensure the security of a commercial property or building, although most of the time bigger companies can afford to have 24/7 manned security officers which can respond to an onsite alarm trigger within seconds sometimes the cost of this can add up.
If you're a small company or even a home owner you can now get emergency response patrol officers which are only called out to an alarm raise, once the security system is triggered the security head centre is then prompted to take immediate action. With watch over the building via security cameras they can determine if the alarm was a false trigger in which a patrol officer will be called out or a robbery in which the police will be notified ASAP.

Patrol Units & the types of protection

Patrol security services can be arranged in many ways with the type of patrol you wish to have, with the different situations certain protection will be more beneficial to each business/home owner, take a look below to see the different patrol protections.
  • Security officers can be assigned to a certain post in which they'll need to keep a constant guard, this can be at a public place or on the grounds of a business.
  • Mobile Security patrols are very common for small businesses as it requires an officer to conduct drive-bys around the building and grounds allowing them to check for vandalism, fire/water damages and unusual behaviour.
  • Alarm Responses allows a patrol to be sent out and act upon any false triggered alarms within minutes to then act upon accordingly however if a burglary is seen in the act then other authorities such as the Police may be informed.
We hope you now have a better understanding of how the security patrols, alarm response systems and manned guarding processes work, if you would like to find out more 3000 Property services offer all security services within Birmingham, West Midlands.

How often Fire Risk Assessments should be done

Fire Risk Assessments: what's the purpose?

The purpose of a fire risk assessment is to evaluate a premises and the tasks that occur in/around it. A fire risk assessment will highlight areas where fires could start or can harm to the people in/around the premises.
The aim of the fire risk assessment is to identify any fire hazards including; reducing the risk of the hazards causing harm and to then decide what precautions and management arrangements are necessary to ensure the safety of people in/around the premises in the event of fire.
3000 Property Service's fire risk assessments allow companies to meet their duties under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 by ensuring that the fire risk assessment is carried out by a registered competent person.


Fire Risk Assessments: How Often should it be carried out?

A fire assessment should be done where there's a change in situation at any work place. Important risks will be overlooked so it can also help to avoid repetition in assessments that will be made in the near future when any other situations have been raised.
A risk assessment is a way that is used to identify health and safety hazards in relation to the people at a work place.


Your business has to have a fire risk assessment by law; the punishment for not having one is severe and you’d be putting everyone in your business at risk.
If that isn’t enough it is very doubtful that your insurance would pay out in the event of a fire. The consequences of that are unthinkable.

Security guards - could you do it?

Some people think of security guards as hardmen enforcers in the mould of Vinnie Jones or Lenny Mclean – the sort of blokes you never mess otherwise you get a slap. While most security guards are required to have a certain level of fitness and physical presence, they’re also selected to an entirely different set of criteria. If you think you have what it takes, could you say you tick all the boxes below?
Arguably the most important attribute of any good security guard is patience. Our security guards understand that for 364 days of the year, a guard’s job is to simply stand watch over an empty property, but on the one day that they may be called into action, you’ll be grateful for their presence. Security guards need to be able to patiently observe a vacant property for long periods of time, without getting distracted or switching off. It can be a very boring job, but there’s no room for complacency in this profession. Over an uneventful shift the temptation may be there to put your feet up, watch telly or even catch 40 winks – and no security guard worth his salt should ever succumb to these temptations.
It’s no good having a patient security guard on site at all times if they miss the incidents they’re employed to prevent. Security guards are intended to be your eyes and ears on the ground; there to vigilantly patrol your property when you can’t be present. Security guards who switch off aren’t doing their jobs properly – constant vigilance is necessary or you risk missing a potentially crucial piece of information.
No-one reasonably expects a security guards to take on the world, but a certain level of confidence is absolutely necessary. To confront potential trespassers or suspicious individuals is a must – shy types have no place in the security industry.  Guards must routinely deal with the general public, the police and their employers, so a professional manner and the ability to communicate information accurately and effectively is essential in this industry. Security guards need the confidence in their own abilities to gauge difficult situations and make the right call every time as, make no mistake, criminals will exploit hesitancy.
Observational skills
While the security guard’s job occasionally involves confrontation, for the most part it focuses around observation instead. Security guards need to monitor their territory constantly.  Security guards represent a more effective deterrent than any other security solution around.
Security guards require numerous attributes in order to perform their jobs clinically and professionally, but they may not be the attributes you’d have expected at first.
