Construction Security Officers & Equipment
Protecting the Nation’s Top Builders
According to the latest statistics from the national Insurance Crime Bureau, construction sites — along with vacant homes — are the most vandalized and burglarized sites in the country. In view of statistics such as this, it is lucidly clear that there is a need to have a competent and effective construction security strategy in place. One of the primary concerns of any construction site manager is access, especially when the construction crew is not on the site.
The primary mission at CPS Security is to function in the capacity of a strategic partner with our clients in order to provide an exceptional and professional level of construction security. What creates the distinction between CPS and other construction site security companies is our specialized expertise in the construction industry as we provide individually tailored strategies based on the specific needs of our clients. We employ these strategies with precision and dedication to the security of the site.
At CPS, our guards use a vendor and visitor log in sheet to accurately record who gains access to the construction site. With this construction security, no equipment or material will be released without the proper written consent of an established authorized person — normally the construction supervisor or site manager.
An exceptional construction site security strategy begins long before the first security officer is placed onsite. Building a proper foundation based on the specific details and needs of the site in question is a prerequisite to a successful strategy deployment. Because construction sites normally involve a significant amount of sub-contractors that represent a number of different fields, there is generally a lot of expensive equipment and material on site, which can be quite tempting for professional and amateur criminals. Devising a strategy that will ensure the safety and security of the site in completion is what CPS specializes in.
We make sure that our security officers are adequately trained to be effective in evaluating a site upon arrival. This allows them to readily identify any particular security issues that need to be addressed. We pride ourselves in offering up to 24-hour construction security seven days per week at very reasonable rates. When you look at what we offer, you will easily see that the minimal investment that you are making has immeasurable value.
In addition to providing uniform security personnel, CPS Security also offers a number of full-service programs which include:
- 24-hour controlled access — Meaning that all vendors and visitors must log in and out at all times
- Constant patrolling of the complete site, checking to make sure that all equipment and material is secure
