 This course provides security guards with knowledge on the various types of patrol assignments such as foot and mobile patrols. The advantages and disadvantages of each will be discussed.

The patrol function is one of the most complex, difficult, and most highly visible of all security activities. One of the first things a security guard should be aware of is that a uniformed patrol force goes a long way in the areas of crime prevention, the apprehension of individuals

committing offences, and, in general, the preservation of the peace.

It is the primary reason that security is hired. Security guards are hired to protect people, property and information. A uniformed guard will help to deter crime just by being in an area.

When you do a patrol you widen the area that you are protecting.
