Apartment Complex Security
While apartment homes are residences just like single-family houses, they have security and safety challenges that are unique. Of course, police departments provide coverage and patrol apartment neighborhoods as often as others. However, apartment complexes frequently have a far higher density of people living close together; shared community resources and spaces; and a full array of lifestyles, attitudes, and cultural norms. Not surprisingly, all this closeness can lead to security and safety concerns.
Graves-Wiley Investigations provides comprehensive armed and unarmed security personnel, as well as mobile patrols, to help ensure the peace at apartment communities.
What Kind of Apartment Security Do We Really Need?
You’ve ensured that your community’s shared spaces and parking lots are well-lit, any pedestrian or vehicle gates open and shut properly, fencing is intact, and individual units are secured. Now what? The security pros at Graves-Wiley Investigations will assess the security needs at your community and make recommendations for further improving the safety of residents. Every community is different, and security threats and needs vary depending on time of day, time of year, tenant base, building layout, and many other factors.
At Graves-Wiley, we specialize in armed and unarmed security personnel—both on foot and in security vehicles—who provide a visible security presence on site, escort residents on request, make routine assessment of security features like lighting, entry/egress, etc., prevent loitering and/or trespassing, and monitor security cameras.
The choice of whether to use armed or unarmed security personnel is unique to each property. Some apartment complexes choose to have unarmed security – they are proactive and deter many types of security incidents, while less threatening than armed guards. However, some locations and types of facilities require a more intimidating approach, either as the result of criminal activity in the surrounding area, previous issues on site, or concern about safety of specific employees or residents. Whether you elect to use armed or unarmed guards, on-foot or mobile patrol, you can be confident that Graves-Wiley Investigations’ expert, trained security professionals will provide the level of service and attention you require.
