Why Hire a Houston Commissioned Officer to Patrol Your Apartment Building
In Houston, a commissioned security officer is the best choice for your security needs if you feel any threat to your life, the lives of your family members, or the lives of your employees. Commissioned officers are also hired to protect large sums of money, high-value items and materials, or to protect events or businesses where perceived, life-threatening dangers are present.
At TCPA, we employ Level III commissioned officers, who are trained to carry and use firearms in high-risk situations. Additionally, we ensure that our officers receive expert and ongoing trainings in critical- and combat-type situations to comply with the Texas Private Security Bureau’s (TPSB) requirements.
Rest assured that when you choose a Houston commissioned security officer from the Texas Crime Prevention Agency, you will be working with a trained, licensed professional who puts your safety first.
You can never be too careful when it comes to protecting your property. If you own an apartment building, TCPA security officers can provide that extra safety and peace of mind you’re looking for. They’re a great way to protect your building and ease the worries of yourself and your tenants. Below are some of the benefits that come from hiring security officers to patrol your apartment building.
Here are some reasons why you should hire one of Texas Crime Prevention Agency’s Commissioned Security Officers:
When people who want to commit a crime see a security officer around, they’re less likely to do it. Posting security officers will help deter break-ins and theft. Additionally, people who want to commit crimes in around the property such as drug use or solicitation will likely find our security officers irritating and decide to go elsewhere. Overall, crime is less likely to occur in and around apartment buildings with security officers
Reacts in Real Time
In the cases where simply posting a security officer isn’t enough to stop crime from happening, you’ll have someone there to deal with the problem. TCPA Security Officers undergo extensive training in order to learn how to react quickly and appropriately to whatever situation they might be presented with. In the event of a break in or some other crime, a TCPA security officer can easily respond to the situation and handle it appropriately.
Residents Have Someone to Call
If a tenant sees someone suspicious or has an issue, she can call your security officer. The security officer can then quickly address the situation. This response is much easier than calling the police because there is no lag time. The tenant will not have to wait in fear until the police arrive. In other cases, you will not have to worry about an untrained tenant attempting to solve the issue herself. Instead, the security officer she knows and trusts will handle the situation for her so she can continue on her day.
Make Management Easier
As a property manager, you probably deal with constant phone calls from tenants. Tenants often complain about parking issues, noise and other problems, which can leave you with a lot to deal with. If you have security on-site, however, your tenants can get in contact with security to voice their complaints about these things. Then, complaints can be handled, and tenants can be made satisfied without you having to do anything, which can make the management of your property a whole lot easier.
Increases Property Value
When your property is safe and crime-free, its value goes up. Posting security officers will not only deter crime on your property, but around it as well. Security officers are a great way to make a community safer and ensure that crime rates are low. When a safe property is in a low-crime area, it has better value.
Keep Your Property in Good Condition
It’s not uncommon for apartment complexes to become the victim of vandalism, theft and other issues. Bad tenants—and people from surrounding neighborhoods—can spray paint graffiti on exterior surfaces and more. They can even do petty things like litter, which can still make your property look bad. Good teams of security officers can help prevent this from happening, which can save you money in the long run. Plus, it’ll help you keep your property in good shape and looking nice for passerby and prospective tenants.
Attract Better Residents
When your property value goes up, you’re more likely to attract stable residents. Families and other reliable tenants are more likely to move in because of the high property value and feeling of safety. These types of tenants tend to pay their rent on time sign longer leases, both of which will be good for your business. Security officers are great assets to attract stable, reliable tenants.
Security Can Be Tailored to Fit Your Needs
Each property is unique, making the needs of each property unique as well. With different options and packages, a company can work with you to come up with the best security plan for your apartment building. Whether you have one particular entrance that needs extra security, or you feel that you need added security at night, your needs can be properly addressed.
Commissioned Security Officer Qualifications
In Texas, a commissioned security officer is distinguished from a non-commissioned officer for their ability to carry firearms while performing their protection duties. At TCPA, our officers go beyond the most basic qualifications. We look for individuals who possess adaptability, integrity, and intuition. We seek commissioned officers who are not only designated to use firearms, but practice the strong judgement of when and how to use deadly force.
Level III commissioned officers are required to complete a 40-hour training course that includes not only firearms handling, but classes focused on high-danger situations such as:
- High-profile person protection
- High-risk emergency situations, like large-scale evacuations
- High-value theft of property
Our commissioned security officers are screened, selected, and evaluated on an ongoing basis to meet your expectations and satisfy for your security needs. Direct contact with the Houston Police Department and in-depth knowledge of the area’s laws allow our security officers to provide unparalleled protective services.
