San Fernando Valley Lock Up & Alarm Services for Improved Business Security
Closing is a critical time for many San Fernando Valley businesses to ensure that sufficient safety and lock up procedures are in place and closely followed to reduce the chance of break-in, trespassing, vandalism, and theft. Due to tight budgets and limited resources, these businesses often depend on their employees to perform all of their closing-related duties, including balancing the register, checking that everyone has left the building, all entry points are closed and locked, all valuables are secure, and that the office and/or building is properly locked. By having an American Shield guard provide lock up and alarm services, your employees can focus on wrapping up your primarily business operations, and you can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that a security professional is 100% committed to properly securing your building. Call today to learn more about American Shield's lock up and alarm services for San Fernando Valley commercial properties. We'll customize our services to your specific needs and budget.
Foot & Bike Mobile Patrols, San Fernando Valley
If you have a moderately sized property in San Fernando Valley with a lot of foot traffic, hidden corners, and/or smaller pathways that needs to be monitored and protected, consider American Shield's foot and bike mobile patrols. Like vehicle patrols, foot and bike patrols are highly cost-efficient but also very effective as a criminal deterrent. However, many of our San Fernando Valley clients will choose foot and bike patrols over vehicle patrols when they want a more approachable security presence. No matter which type of security presence you wish to establish, our mobile patrols are always performed by BSIS-licensed, highly trained security guards. Call today to learn more.

Generally, our patrols are performed by armed or unarmed guards who drive clearly marked patrol vehicles around your San Fernando Valley property. These patrols are performed at random times, following an unpredictable path, that meets the level of surveillance your site requires. Call us today to discuss your mobile patrol needs in San Fernando Valley.
San Fernando Valley Special Event Security Guards
In order to put on a successful event, an event organizer must take the time to develop a plan for safety and security.
