Alarm systems, motion detectors and camera systems make it easier for construction security guards to secure the site, but it does not replace them. There is professional burglars in each metropolitan area, such as Dallas-Fort Worth, specialized in stealing from construction sites that are solely secured by security equipment. A professional thief will not approach a site that is secured by a vigilant, alert and visible security guard. The security guard patrolling the site will not only prevent crime from happening, but he can immediately respond if a perpetrator enters the site.
Competition and crisis in the construction industry requires project managers to save on all aspects of the construction. It is cheaper to employ alarm systems and security cameras than an actual construction security guard. Nevertheless, it is much more costly if the project is late, because equipment is stolen or the site is vandalized. Our company has witnessed many instances when all the computers have been stolen from the trailers or the site has been vandalized, because the construction company did not hire a construction security guard. A good security company will utilize all the technology mentioned above and work with you to minimize your cost while still keeping your budget in mind. Overall, the peace of mind and savings a construction security guard provides beat the mirage of security an unmanned security system provides.
