Frequently Asked Questions

Should I contract a guard or a patrol?

If your company isn’t already contracting a security service, it is most often that they begin with a patrol. But we will make that suggestion when we provide a security consultation. Contracting a patrol officer is more cost-effective while a guard may be able to provide additional security monitoring.

Does Americal Patrol provide armed or unarmed services?

Our license allows for armed and unarmed patrol and guard services.

What additional services do you provide?

  • Alarm response for current clients

  • Fire watch

  • Door checks

  • Dropping off of patrol slips at the location

  • Securing specific areas of the property

  • Dedicated vehicles can be contracted for larger properties and the vehicle(s) will be marked with the client's logo upon request

What is the difference in a security guard and a security patrol?

A contracted security guard remains at the property or location during a set period of time to watch and report. A security patrol will drive or walk the property or location at staggered time intervals and check procedures from the client.
