Why Texas Neighborhoods Need Mobile Patrol Services?


Business owners desire optimal security at a minimal expense. Employing on-site guards can become expensive swiftly and may not always be beneficial. Mobile patrol services, where officers visit your premises periodically to prevent criminal activity and conduct inspections, provide efficient protection at a fraction of the cost of other professional security services.

As a full service security company, Ranger Guard conducts mobile patrols in our clearly marked police style cruisers across Houston, Austin, and Dallas and many other cities, as well as many of our franchise locations across other states.

How Ranger Guard Mobile Patrol Works

Throughout the night, Ranger Guard officers make multiple visits to sites under mobile patrol protection. Thanks to the added flexibility of vehicles, they are able to patrol other locations when not attending to your business. This allows for cost-sharing with another party, resulting in a mobile patrol service that can be two or three times less expensive than personalized 24/7 protection.

Ranger Guard’s high-tech tracking system enables security patrol service officers to conduct physical checks on access points and parking areas using GPS. They take photos and log their inspections, which customers can access anytime to verify patrols and review the officer’s daily reports. This information can be shared with relevant parties such as law enforcement, lawyers, property managers, and other staff as needed.

At Ranger Guard, we recruit security guard patrol agents who possess military or law enforcement experience. Through specialized aptitude tests, extensive background checks, and rigorous drug testing, we ensure that only the most qualified individuals are hired. Furthermore, we provide these individuals with training that complements their specialized skills.

  • anti-terrorism tactics
  • criminal law
  • defensive tactics
  • access control
  • patrol procedures
  • first aid/CPR

Supervisors are also trained data analysts, so they spot recurring safety problems and can recommend solutions to halt unauthorized activities. 

Deter Criminals and Monitor Properties on Demand

Reducing criminal activity is greatly influenced by deterrence, which can even result in a 15-20% decrease in insurance premiums. A highly effective method of achieving deterrence is through the use of security cars that are clearly marked and visible, with bright lights. These patrol services make random visits every night, preventing criminals from being able to monitor their schedule and plan accordingly. Due to the unpredictability of when a security car will arrive, criminals will be hesitant to attempt anything. The patrols can be armed or unarmed based on your preference.

Security needs vary depending on the situation. Various security technologies, such as surveillance robots or neighborhood crime monitoring cell phone apps, can provide alerts about suspicious activity. However, having a guard on site who can monitor and conduct spot checks for illegal activities such as break-ins, graffiti, vandalism, theft, and parking violations is irreplaceable. Roving officers are able to provide this in-person support.

Mobile patrol can also be hired in support of other security measures or as a backup option. Gated communities in particular can benefit from adding mobile security to their protection plans.
