Dishonest staff and syndicates monitor security closely in order to identify a weakness such as the security officer’s failure to patrol, sleeping on duty, being under the influence of alcohol/drugs or deserting his post prior to his replacement arriving. These factors all place the client’s assets at risk.
The placement of undercover operatives plays a vital proactive role in bringing possible approaches or breaches to light.
Undercover agents are an invaluable source of information regarding weak links within the security network and can provide information on whether security protocols are being maintained, thereby ensuring an ongoing audit of security operations. In many cases our undercover agents are infiltrated into actual security operations, while they perform standard security officer duties. They are also utilized to ensure the integrity of the security compliment at a client’s business by reporting on potential collusion between security officers and criminal elements.
