Security patrol log

Download this free PDF to document security issues that arise during patrol.

A security patrolling checklist is a daily report of security officers’ activities throughout their shift timings, also known as officer’s DAR. It includes routine security patrols and any security issues noticed during the patrol activities.

This page will discuss:

  • Security patrol log requirements
  • The purpose of the security patrol log
  • Benefits of using the security patrol app

‍What are the requirements of a security patrol log?

The security patrol log has specific requirements that depend on the type of patrol the officers perform. This patrol log should include the items about the patrol guards’ routine activities while they are on duty. These can be according to the specific requirements of the client, such as on/off timings, change in shift, performed patrols, any unusual activity, etc.

Who uses a security patrol log and why?

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.

Why use a security patrolling checklist app?

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.
