Improve the Safety of Your San Gabriel Valley Business's Closing Procedures with Professional Lock Up & Alarm Services

Closing is a critical time for many San Gabriel 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 Gabriel Valley commercial properties. We'll customize our services to your specific needs and budget.

Mobile Foot/Bike Patrols in San Gabriel Valley

American Shield's foot and bike patrols are a great alternative to security vehicle patrols if you have a property in the San Gabriel Valley area that isn't large enough to justify patrols by car, yet requires more surveillance than a standing guard can provide. Like vehicle patrols, our foot and bike patrol service still provides a strong visible deterrent to would-be criminals as well as unruly behavior. However, patrols performed on foot or by bike allow for greater mobility along walking paths, small pathways and alleyways, and variable terrain. They also make our guards more accessible, which helps to integrate them into your community--an aspect that is very important to our San Gabriel Valley clients who manage gated neighborhoods, college campuses, and business parks. If you are interested in foot or bike patrols for your San Gabriel Valley site, call us today for a free security consultation.

One of American Shield Private Security's most frequently requested private security services among its San Gabriel Valley clients is the mobile vehicle patrol service. This service consists of armed or unarmed security officers who use our marked patrol vehicles to perform cost-effective surveillance on large properties, such as gated neighborhoods, parking lots, construction sites, business parks, college campuses, medical facilities, and large entertainment venues. Our private security officers are all BSIS licensed, which means that they are fully trained in powers to arrest, PR, observation and documentation, communication, legal aspects and liability, WMD and terrorism, and a variety of other security subjects. Additionally, they are all highly experienced in how to deter, investigate, and respond to unwanted behavior using the industry's best practices for vehicle patrol. Call today for a free quote. Because mobile patrol services can be used to protect and secure large areas in a short amount of time, this service is considered one of the best values we offer.

Just wanted to commend you guys for your diligent work last night. There was a fire in our building and apparently your guard called 911. Thank God no one was hurt and there was relatively minor damage considering the circumstances . . .
