Alarm Monitoring & Response in Compton
Did you know that having local law enforcement respond to your false alarms can lead to expensive fees that increase with each successive false alarm? To avoid these unnecessary and costly fees, you want to make sure that your alarm was properly installed and is regularly inspected; ensure that anyone who will use this system has been fully trained; provide your alarm monitoring provider with more than one phone number or multiple contacts; determine the cause of each false alarm to see if you can prevent further false alarms; and ensure that your property is completely secure (windows, doors, and other entry points are locked) before the alarm is set. Additionally, you can have a local private patrol company such as American Shield Private Security, Inc. monitor your Compton security system. American Shield has highly qualified, BSIS-certified mobile security guards who will quickly respond to any triggered alarms and investigate their cause. In the event of a false alarm, our guard will ensure your property is completely secure and then reset your alarm. If your alarm was triggered due to trespassing, a break in, or other suspicious activities, our guard will immediately notify the police, stay on the premises until they arrive, and provide assistance as needed. If you are interested in learning more about American Shield's Compton alarm response services, call us today.

American Shield has developed high-quality temporary fire watch services for clients in and around the Compton area.

That's because to meet California's Fire Code requirements, you need your designated fire watch personnel to be fully committed to patrolling the vulnerable areas, keeping detailed records, and staying ready to respond to any hazardous or fire-related emergencies. American Shield's assigned guards will meet these requirements and more. We can ensure that our guards are equipped with radios and cell phones so they can readily reach the fire department and are prepared to evacuate your building according to your safety protocols in the event of an emergency.
