By remotely monitoring an officer’s location and activity, supervisors can immediately respond to inadequate performance, address issues or take corrective action in real time, rather than after the fact when the guard tour has ended. A concern and potential liability occurs when guards abandon posts they are assigned to protect. If a guard leaves a property for any reason, GT2 will notify a supervisor that the device has violated a pre-configured GeoFence.
Blueline's security officers are able to instantly mass notify multiple managers and supervisors of a situation. As a result, they are not faced with making big decisions without supervisory input, and responsibility for managing problems is transferred to more experienced supervisors.
The GuardTrax GT2 panic button and motion sensor increase the personal safety of each security officer in the field. In the event of a crisis situation, a security officer can immediately mass notify and contact emergency personnel, as well as additional security support personnel, with the single press of a button. If a guard is down, the motion sensor will detect a lack of motion and transmit a “no motion” alert to a supervisor for immediate response and support.
There are a number of guard tour systems on the market and in use throughout the industry, Blueline Security Services determined GuardTrax (http://guardtrax.com) offered the most technologically advanced features of any system they evaluated. The increased levels of officer safety as well as transparency to their clients was a big factor in the decision making process.
"We are not only excited about implementing GuardTrax and ensuring that our security officers are safer, but just as importantly we want complete transparency to our clients. With GuardTrax each of our clients is given a login ID and they are able to check the system at any time and be reassured that the choice to employ Blueline Security Services for their security needs was the right decision," stated by Tim Cordero, Vice President Blueline Security Services.
