In a healthcare facility, you have many people around including patients, their loved ones, and the doctors, nurses, and specialists who care for them. Patients and equipment are constantly being moved from room to room or even different wards of a hospital. This frantic environment can make it extremely difficult to keep a detailed track record of everyone’s comings and goings. With people’s lives at stake and confidential medical documents being passed around it is important to have adequate security to ensure the safety of both your patients and your institution. While a hospital or doctor’s office is meant to be a place of healing, it can also present an opportunity for crime. Remote guards can help dissuade the theft or misuse of medical equipment, documents, and prescription medications. They can also be a great asset if a patient is unjustly claiming malpractice.
Banks and other financial institutions are thought to be highly secure. Many employ access control, on-site security guards, and advanced safe mechanisms to keep their customer’s assets secure. However, valuable content is usually enough to encourage criminals to target them despite these precautions. For this reason, many banking establishments are looking for additional safeguards to employ. Collusion is a problem that is always rearing its head, with most bank robberies or thefts having been shown to be inside jobs.
DSG can also help with monitoring your teller area and entrances to help spot potential threats before on-site personnel may be able to. For establishments that offer 24-hour ATM services even after employees have gone home, remote surveillance is the superior guarding choice. This is because remote guards work in rotating shifts in order to always stay alert and not be subject to distractions like rowdy surroundings or bathroom breaks. Having additional, third-party security is a great way to help ensure that your property is safe from both external and internal threats.
Gated Communities are often sprawling mini-cities with various security needs. While gates and guards are a great place to start, they are exactly that, a starting point. Neighborhood guards are essential, but can only be in one place at a time and gates can often be circumnavigated or gates codes given out recklessly. In order to fill these holes in security, many HOAs employ surveillance systems. This is fantastic, but without advanced analytics and consistent monitoring, your cameras are really only of use retroactively. DSG will make sure that both residents and visitors, invited or otherwise, are always following local laws and rules established by the community.
