A courtesy security patrol is a much appreciated perk. Customers tend to appreciate such patrols, something that bodes well for businesses. The goal for any business is to make sure that their customers feel safe. If they do, they are more likely to spend their hard earned money there, that is if the store has something that customer wants, at a price that they are willing to pay.
A courtesy security patrol isn’t a necessity (thought it may eventually become one), but it is a great perk. If a company doesn’t have any security problems, then an occasional security patrol may be done just to make customers feel safe and secure. Now, if problems develop, breaks-ins or assaults for instance, it will be necessary to step up patrols. For a period-of-time, depending on what type of business it is, around-the-clock patrols may be needed. It will be important for a company to assess its needs, regarding security. The sooner a company does so, the better. This will allow a business to react sooner rather than later to potential or actual problems.
As mentioned above, when a business doesn’t have any security problems, occasional courtesy security patrols are all that’s necessary. This arrangement is a win-win situation for everyone. The customer feels safe, secure and cared for and the business is able to keep their cost low while still benefiting from everything security patrols provide in terms of customer satisfaction.
Customers want to feel safe. Even if a store offers great products at affordable prices, if a customer doesn’t feel safe, they will either not go to the store in question at all or they will only do so infrequently. This will affect a business’ bottom line, effectively resulting in them leaving money on the table. This isn’t a problem that a company wants to have. They should do whatever they can to avoid it. Courtesy security patrols can sometimes help ward off problems, preventing them before they occur. This is typically the best way to handle things. The adage is true, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It is better to avoid problems than it is to have to deal with them and the consequences of them.
Most customers will appreciate a courtesy security patrol. It signals to them that a company is committed to their safety and the safety of their property. This can pay off in a big way for companies. The better customers feel, the more likely they are to spend time and money at a store.
