Security managers, security guards, and agencies can use a security patrol log to track and monitor the daily activities and security patrols around the facility or building. It helps identify and address any trespassing issues, site loitering, or any other security issues on the property.
Using a paper security patrol log may delay response to suspicious activities or result in the failure to record issues. A security patrol app helps security personnel and guards quickly record any security issues at the guarded premises during regular patrol activities using the mobile device they're already carrying. Photos, video, and notations make it easy for guards to document any issues or incidents and share data in real time with other stakeholders. It also enables patrols to set up automated workflows to instantly notify emergency personnel if assistance is required, or property or facility managers when action is needed.
