Manufacturing and Warehouse Security
Manufacturing and warehousing have specialized requirements for protective service personnel. Landmark Officers are trained to provide assistance in all areas of the manufacturing and warehousing facility. Our Officers can greatly enhance the safe working environment by ensuring adherence of company and OSHA rules and regulations. Officers can assist in tracking and logging of truck shipped and received goods, control parking areas, control building access, field calls for management personnel and serve as a deterrent to theft.
Officers often assist with the monitoring of sensitive equipment and reporting of maintenance issues, particularly during periods of shutdown and inactivity. Landmark officers are additionally tasked with insuring compliance with safe working practices such as clearance of emergency exits, paths of egress and operation of fire suppression equipment. Security personnel are also utilized to dispatch emergency services and respond to intrusion alarms. First aid and CPR certified Officers are also available.
Our Officers are at times also tasked to present during termination proceedings to help reduce the threat of confrontational behavior. The presence of uniformed Officers has also proven to greatly reduce incidence of workplace violence.
We strive to have our Officers become integrated partners into the facilities in which they serve. We stress to our Officers that they are to help provide a welcoming impression while providing an atmosphere of safety and well being. This is accomplishable while maintaining a high level of professionalism and visibility.
The available Landmark Guard-Trac system is a cost effective tool to provide positive control. It insures that Officer patrols are conducted on time and as directed. A series of strategically located registration points, working in conjunction with the hand held device, provide for positive tracking of an Officer during patrols. These can be placed at key points such as parking areas, shipping receiving entrances, storage areas, gates and access points or on key equipment. The Guard-Trac System can generate reports in any variety of formats. These reports provide a detailed record of the whereabouts of an Officer down to the exact second contact was made with the registration point. Officers also provide detailed written logs of all activity and patrols conducted on site. Oversight is also provided by seasoned supervisory personnel that insure our Officers are on-site alert and performing their duties as prescribed by the client and our management team. Supervisors and management personnel are available to our clients 24 hour a day 365 days a year.
Where exterior mounted patrols are warranted; we offer two tiers of patrol vehicle service. Option one includes a police style marked four door sedan. This vehicle is complete with striping, door badge and conspicuous light bar. This vehicle allows for the maximum of visible deterrent; particularly after dark as it can be seen and recognized as an enforcement type vehicle, even from great distances. Option two has our officers utilize their own private vehicle. The officers’ vehicle is supplied with highly visible, distinctively styled door placards and roof mounted magnetic patrol light. Highly visible green security vehicle lighting, by law, is permissible for use in any non public highway areas. This technique is highly effective in deterring incidents of vehicle break-in, assaults and theft. Also on light bar equipped vehicles; side, rear and front spot lighting can be utilized for an enhanced deterrent effect.
High visibility coupled with training, professional appearance and demeanor are the cornerstones of an effective security program. Our Officers wear distinctive black and grey police style uniforms. These uniforms are complete with badge and credentials that clearly identify them as North Carolina Private Protective Services Board Registered Security Enforcement Officers. We also have our own PPSB certified training program. This way we can insure that our officers have received the proper training and have an in depth understanding of what is expected of them in the field.
All of our Officers must meet stringent requirements for clear criminal background. These include fingerprint checks of nationwide databases. Additionally, our Officers must complete training designed to insure that our Officers operate lawfully, safely and effectively in the field. Officers assigned to dealership locations receive additional training in areas specific to that environment.
Landmark will have our field assessment and management team meet on site and conduct an in depth survey to assess the client’s unique protective service needs. These surveys are conducted free of charge to the client. Feel free to contact a representative any time to discuss any protective service concerns.
