|| Command Center Consoles
With the crime of today, command center consoles have become a necessity in any small business, large corporation and even in apartment blocks. There are many different types of command center consoles, from security consoles, surveillance consoles, video consoles and even computer and monitor consoles. Command center consoles are basically cabinets with rack mounting and space for various screens and other equipment forms.
Besides for having command center consoles in your building, it is a good idea to also employ a courtesy officer or even a security guard to maximize safety and security. You can have a specified uniform for your guard to ensure that any potential criminals or armed robbers will be able to instantly identify him or her and will reconsider robbing your office block or apartment building. You can even allow the guard or officer to live on the property, ensuring that he or she is always available if needed in the event of an emergency.
The guard can sit at one of your command center consoles and also have a pager, so that he or she can be contacted with ease. Another advantage of having a guard is that he or she would have previously undergone training in security as well as foot patrol and will be able to be of great assistance during times of need. Obviously before hiring somebody, you will be able to perform background checks on him or her to ensure that he or she is a suitable candidate for the job of protecting your other employees or residents of your apartment building.
You will be able to hire a security guard on either a permanent basis or on a contract term, depending on your needs. It is often a good idea to get in touch with a security guard agency that will be able to place one of their professional guards at your business. The advantage to this is that you won’t need to do background checks or fund any sort of training, as the academy or agency would have already done all of those things, and so your new guard will be able to easily manage command center consoles and other forms of security equipment, not to mention be able to deal efficiently with a wide range of problems.
When hiring a security guard to man one of your command center consoles, you can get him or her to read and then sign a written contract that may include strict patrol rules and regulations and high standards of work ethic as well. What this contract or post order could possibly include might be the times of foot patrol, how long they should be and how often they should be done. Get the security guard to patrol all areas of the property and not just stay at the command center consoles all night.
The guard or security officer could possibly have a log book in which he or she must record the patrol patterns and any disturbances that might have occurred during the night.
