Security for Residential Neighborhoods & Gated Communities

Residential security is a specialty at CPS Security. When our officers are placed on the job in a residential neighborhood, they are able to handle all of the security for the entire community. From the entry gates to helping with emergencies, our security teams are trained to make certain that the people in the community feel completely safe.

Our trained, equipped and certified security officers will be on the job 24 hours a day in the community to give everyone the knowledge that there is someone watching out for them. We uniform all of our officers to make our security presence known, and we dedicate ourselves to the safety of everyone who lives in the neighborhood.

Gated Communities

When the community is gated, our security teams handle every security procedure at the entry gate. We do not simply open the gate and left people in the neighborhood. Our security officers check the residential decals on all the cars of people who live in the neighborhood. Our security staff also get to know everyone in the neighborhood that we have a personal relationship with people who live in the community. This connection helps us to provide better security and make everyone feel safer.

When people roll up to the entry gate who are visitors, we check a visitor’s log that the homeowners in the community can add names to. When people are not on the list, we make sure to contact the resident whom the visitor is going to see before they are let into the community. We are extremely professional and cordial, but we take every precaution to make sure that the neighborhood is safe. This means that we do not let in anyone who is not supposed to be there.

When people are leaving the neighborhood, we ensure that the same number of people who entered the neighborhood also leave the neighborhood. We check cars out of the community so that we always know who is on the premises.

Residential Guard Patrols

Our security guards also drive around the neighborhood an walk the streets of the neighborhood to make sure that everyone is safe and secure. We keep our eyes open for suspicious behavior, but we also make sure that children are not playing in the street or that cars are not broken down or parked incorrectly.

When we check that cars in the right places, we are ensuring that the streets are safe to drive on, but we are also ensuring that all of our residents are safe. We make sure to check on every home where something seems to be awry, and we also check on homeowners who have their garages open or their front doors open. We simply want to make sure that every resident is safe and feels safe.

Neighborhood Emergencies

When there are emergencies in the neighborhood, we make sure to provide information to the authorities who are sending help. We will run to a home that has an ambulance coming, and we will also check homes where a fire has broken out. We are committed to the safety of all of the people in the community, and we do not wait for the authorities to arrive. We jump into action as soon as we possibly can.

We can also coordinate with local authorities to give them information to help them get to the right house in a fair amount of time. We always keep a lane open for these vehicles to get in and out of the community, and we work with the local authorities whenever there is an emergency so that the residents in the community do not have to.

Other Residential Security Programs

We can also have special K-9 units on the premises to help with suspicious activity. We offer ambassador programs to kids in the community to teach them about safety and security. We also educate the homeowners in the community so that they are being as safe as possible. Moreover, we use the most appropriate vehicles to get around the neighborhood. Whether we have officers on a Segway or on a bike, we always have officers in places where they can easily get to the people in the community to keep them safe no matter what the situation.

With help from CPS Security, every neighborhood has the chance to have their neighborhood locked down tight to ensure that everyone’s safety is of the utmost importance. The things that we can do well help to keep people safe when they are trying to live comfortably in their homes.

The best part of working with CPS Security is that we handle all of the security concerns for the community so that the community does not have to lift a finger. From emergency response to education, we make it easy for homeowners to live safely in their homes and know that we are standing at the gatekeeping the community safe.
