Random Security Vehicle Patrols
Unpredictability is an aid in deterring criminal activity. Random security vehicle patrols offer a strategic advantage in the effort to reduce the vulnerability of unoccupied facilities. A thorough patrol service administered by experienced security officers may meet the needs of many organizations to reduce loitering, vandalism, and vagrancy across a variety of commercial properties.
- Visible Presence – A visible security presence that can deter unlawful activity. For example, teenagers who seek to congregate at an office park are less likely to adopt your location for “party central” if security patrols are in the area. The patrol presence can also be supported with signage that states the facility is patrolled.
- Random Patterns – Patrols should be conducted at random times and patterns so that loiterers or others engaged in suspicious activity never know when security will be present, making the location less likely to be victimized.
- Beyond Patrol – Depending on the property and security requirements, the patrol officer can leave their vehicle to check gates, doors and windows and address challenges.
- Immediate Reporting – Technology solutions allow patrol officers to record and electronically report on site conditions and observations immediately.
- Cost-Effective – Not every organization can afford, nor is it always necessary to have, a security team present around the clock. Visible patrols provide effective deterrence without full-time staff.

HOA Security (Vacation Checks)
If you live in a community that has a Home Owner’s Association (HOA), you should ask your HOA representatives what they are doing to maintain the safety and security of the residents and homes in your community. Ambassador works to keep your community a safe place to reside, it is an option they should seriously consider.
All homeowners should be concerned about security. Even if you think that you will never be the victim of crime, it is important to know that no one is immune to crime and that it could happen to anybody. Anyone’s home could be invaded. Anyone could be assaulted when walking at night. Anyone could need the help of a security guard. Security guard companies don’t 100% prevent crime from happening in your area, but they are known to be a huge deterrent to crime.
AWPA can help deter unwanted traffic and theft. When people see our patrol cars, potential criminals are less likely to target the homes in your community. It’s a mistake to assume crime won’t happen. A great way to keep the community and residents safe is by hiring AWPA.
If your business office has a monitored security alarm system and the alarm is tripped, you are called (usually late at night while sleeping) and then you’re forced to make a decision if the police should be dispatched, or if you want to respond yourself. You know that most of the time alarm calls are “false” alarms and if the police are dispatched too many times you will be fined, so you go check it out yourself in the middle of the night.
Instead, let AWPA handle that painful burglary alarm call for you. Let us be the first to get the alarm call from your security alarm monitoring company, not the police.
Our experienced officers will then respond and visit your business location to determine if the police need to get involved. In the case of false alarms, we clear your facility, reset the alarm, and send you a report.
If we determine that the police are needed, we contact them, provide them access and any information they require, and we stay at your location until they release us. We will promptly notify you of the situation and assist in any way that we can.
What is Secure Executive Transportation?
Secure Executive Transportation is the provision of safe, secure and efficient driving services in support of traveling executives and their staff. This service is delivered by vetted professional security drivers utilizing a fleet of safety checked vehicles dedicated to the specific task.
Why do you need Secure Transport?
By utilizing AWPA you are reducing potential exposure to risks and hazards present when conducting business travel. Traveling executives are at greatest risk when in transit to and from office, accommodation, or airport locations. Secure transportation services harness local knowledge and intelligence in conjunction with vetted staff to deliver a safe and secure environment at all times.
Use of secure transportation minimizes the risk and exposure to non-criminal incidents (such as road traffic accidents, vehicle failure, and poor route selection) as well as dangerous scenarios such as theft, kidnapping, armed robbery, assault and other traumatic events.
Why shouldn’t I use local taxi or ride share services?
Taxis in many of the cities in which we operate do not require background checks and only basic licensing (if at all), therefore you never know who your driver will be until you enter the vehicle and have only limited ability to determine their validity. In certain countries taxis increase a traveler’s risk of being targeted by criminals.
Rideshare services may have an increased level of security compared to taxis, often knowing whom your driver is just prior to pick up. However vehicles are not safety-checked, the background checks are basic, and using rideshare in certain countries (if available) may increase the chances of being targeted by criminals or taxi drivers.
If you choose to use a local taxi provider or rideshare service, you are placing your security when you are potentially most vulnerable to an unknown entity and in a country or city where your lack of local knowledge reduces the likelihood of being able to identify emerging threats or risks.
