HIGHLY TRAINED GUARDS AND SECURITY OFFICERS
Compass Guarding & Cleaning’s commitment to service excellence has enabled it to grow from a team of just 35 officers to some 390 highly-trained security guards and 45 cleaners over just 7 years. We incentivise and reward hard work, through providing opportunities for self-development and career growth.
GUARDING AND PATROL DOGS
With 52 serviced sites across the Western Cape, skilled security personnel, a state-of-the-art control room and a commitment to professionalism and excellence, Compass Guarding & Cleaning is your ultimate security partner. We service retail, industrial and commercial sites and monitor our services via a ‘live’ Active Track patrol system, making us ready to respond to any emergency at short notice.
Patrol dogs are generally deployed where security officers may be at risk or if there are large areas to patrol. Our patrol dogs have proven to be a highly effective deterrent in preventing theft and damage to property and are a valued part of our team. Housed on site in kennels with ample food and water, they are well cared for and enjoy a monthly check-up via an onsite vet to keep them in top form.
24/7 CONTROL ROOM
The Control Room is the nerve centre of our business and our control room operators are trained to handle all types of emergencies, ranging from fire or bomb threats to medical situations. The control room is manned on a 24 hour basis.
All emergency numbers, ranging from the SAPS, Fire and Traffic Department, Ambulance and Poison, as well as Water and Electricity, particular to each site are kept in the Control Room and easily accessible. Our control room operators conduct hourly telephonic check-ups on each site and these calls are logged into an Occurrence Book for daily review by management.
Using the Live ‘Active Track’ patrolling system, which works via cell-phone, our control room operators are able to immediately respond to any discrepancies and – if necessary – deploy an inspector, manager or the police services. B-Grade Controllers perform duties per 12 hour shifts which includes “off site CCTV monitoring for 18 current clients.
REMOTE CCTV MONITORING
We provide CCTV security systems to a diverse range of clients at market related and affordable prices. We also maintain and monitor existing CCTV security systems with monthly maintenance contracts and install automated booms and sliding gates.
We also provide Remote off site CCTV Monitoring where properties can be monitored centrally from our 24 hour Control Room. This enables us to accurately report on security, productivity and procedures.
COMMERCIAL CLEANING SERVICES
We specialise in Commercial, Industrial and Retail cleaning, taking pride in ensuring that the proper procedures and methods of cleaning are followed at all times.
Before quoting or tendering, we establish which cleaning methods will be best suited for the particular site and which equipment, chemical and labour requirements will enable us to meet our clients’ needs. Our services are tailor-made to suit the specific needs of our clients.
All cleaning staff receive induction training and are issued with a job description and cleaning schedule. Inspections are routinely conducted to ensure consistently high standards of service.
TACTICAL ARMED DIVISION
We are in progress of establishing a Tactical Armed Division, which will be operational from 1 August 2017.
