Physical and Roving Security

Physical security, as defined, describes security measures that are designed to deny access to unauthorized personnel (including attackers or accidental intruders) from physically accessing a building, facility, resource; and guidance on how to design structures to resist potentially hostile acts. Physical security can be as simple as a locked door or as elaborate as multiple layers of barriers, security guards, and guard house placement.

Cramer Security & Investigations, Inc. will take actions to protect your buildings, property, and assets against intruders. There are various layers that require protection in order to achieve an effective physical security system.

CSI will assist you in executing an Inner Perimeter Security plan. This will begin by the addition of locks and alarm systems. The use of access control systems, keycards, and access badges will also control the flow of traffic and deter intruders.

The External Perimeter Security plan will control who can gain access to your property. This will be achieved by uniformed security officers on foot patrol. CSI will optimize your natural barriers on the property. Visitors can be channeled into a defined area by landscaping features. This will guide people as they enter and exit and discourage intruders. Any potential escape routes will be assessed and closed off. Monitoring well placed security cameras will allow CSI to be proactive by denying or limiting who approaches your buildings and property.

Roving Security Officer Procedures are one of the strongest visual deterrents available. Randomized patrols are especially effective when a potential intruder is casing a building and searching for weaknesses in the security strategy. Our roving guards will check areas for any sign of disruption. CSI security vehicles are highly visible and provide us with the ability to respond to a crisis in a timely fashion.
