Gateway Security Service provides a complete range of solutions to ensure any organization with a safe and secure environment. This includes temporary security services and on-going staffing requirements. We work closely with each client to deliver a customized program that guarantees the highest level of protection.
Both armed and unarmed uniformed security officers are offered dependent upon each client's security
requirements. Security officers are licensed, trained, and possess the powers of arrest. Gateway Security Service maintains a comprehensive industry insurance program to protect all clients in the event of any civil litigation.
Our mobile patrol service offers a flexible security solution that caters to organizations of all sizes. Uniformed mobile officers operate marked patrol vehicles in performing random inspections and alarm responses. Officers are trained in response tactics including notifying local law enforcement and client representatives.
Gateway Security Service maintains a security force available to respond to an emergency need for security service. This could be a facility that encounters an alarm outage, insecure door, fire, flood, etc. Gateway Security can generally respond in less than one hour to any security need.
Many organizations encounter a requirement for temporary security services. Whether it be a special event, equipment stored in a vulnerable area, fence repairs, etc., Gateway Security Service maintains a security force to respond to the need for temporary security services.
When confronted with labor disputes, organizations often require the implementation of additional security measures. Gateway Security Service possesses decades of experience in providing security planning and assignment of security officers to organizations encountering labor disputes. Gateway Security Service's officers routinely provide perimeter security and monitor ingress/egress at facilities encountering labor problems. The use of an outside security force minimizes the contact between an organization's striking and non-striking employees.
Officers manage Security Operations Command which serves as a nerve center for all security operations, ensuring efficient coordination and seamless communication. By leveraging cutting-edge technology and highly skilled personnel, the Security Operations Command guarantees round-the-clock monitoring, rapid response to incidents, and effective deployment of resources, providing our clients with peace of mind and top-notch security services.
