SECURITY RISK SURVEYS
Risk surveys are the basis of Arkhê’s approach to security solutions. We have experienced managers and they are able to identify and anticipate risks. Risk surveys and audits form the basis for careful planning, which means that preventative measures can be in place before it’s needed.
Still a key element in securing events, client products and premises, manned guarding provides dedicated, highly skilled teams whose physical presence acts as a deterrent and is an effective means of loss control. Proper planning and preparation – including scenario training – ensures that both operations and events run smoothly.
Technology increases our security and response ability when you need it most. Our Control Centers are monitoring our clients alarm systems and possible panic calls on a 24/7 basis to be able to assist you when needed.
Your security is our priority!
Arkhê offers armed response services to suit specific client’s needs. We have extensive experience in response teams to enable us to plan on the best methods to suit the task to counter identified risks. Arkhê’s armed response officers are well trained and we comply with all legislation.
Remote CCTV monitoring compliments the physical security guard at many sites. The offsite monitoring is a great help by using carefully calculated and strategically placed cameras. This can offer strategic advantages to the effectiveness of the security. Offsite monitoring clearly will not replace the onsite guards. The function is to oversee the onsite security procedures, check and enforce the onsite procedures. The control room offers onsite support in the event of an incident and prepare management reports.
The major role of the remote monitoring is to help the onsite team prepare an immediate response to what is happening on the ground. It creates the ability to filter nuisance alarms and inform guards only when required. This offers peace of mind to the client.
There are sufficient procedures and measures in place to minimize the possibility of human error and equipment failure. Arkhê Risk Solutions have been training the monitoring personnel to ensure that controller performance is according to predefined requirements. We will send transparent reports to the client and this should be enforced in the contract. Arkhê has standard operating procedures for the operators which can include, guard patrols verified visually, visits by supervisors, and reporting of incidents and actions taken. Spreadsheets can be compiled of Entry and Exit as per customer scope of work requests.
Arkhê Risk Solutions technical teams install cameras allowing for easy retrieval of images and therefor time is significantly reduced by searching for images using specific intelligent software. The systems installed have a high picture image quality which allows for clear identification purposes.
Built in intelligence line crossing and zone control that never sleeps will definitely contribute to the monitoring effectiveness. Video analytics are utilized to reduce false alarms and ensure the validity of the incident requiring attention. Video footage is recorded and preserved for at least 30 days for operators or clients to review.
Maintenance contracts are important to implement and this reduces the down time of any camera repairs or vandalism.
The control room communication is direct and only to specific telephone numbers. No cellular phones are permitted in the control room, many clients are therefore requesting the offsite monitoring as the operators are not easily corrupted. Connectivity is also an important factor and there needs to be communication redundancy in place for optimised uptime.
When security tasks are divided by onsite and offsite monitoring and based on the strengths of each, this would be the best route to follow.

The results are so positive that Arkhê decided to offer this service to our clients in all big centra.
