Patrol Services

Tri City Patrol, Inc. is on patrol 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, 365-days a year. Our uniformed Patrol Officers will perform random patrols of your property and make thorough inspections of your areas of concern. We provide a deterrent to criminal activity. The Patrol Units are clearly marked, and are operated by uniformed Patrol Officers. You specify the number of visits each workday and weekend day. Our Officers will do a physical check and search of the property for criminal activity, damage or trespassers. Our Patrol Officers provide and respond to the following:
  • Random Security Patrols of your Property
    (Residential, Commercial & Industrial)
  • Response to Complaints
    (Loud music, neighbor disputes, loitering, etc. Limited call response is included with any standard patrol contract)
  • Emergency Response
    (Respond to emergency situation. In the event of possible loss of life or property, client should contact 911)
  • Private Community Patrols
    (Homeowner Associations, Apartment Communities, Mobile Home Communities, Sub-Divisions, Individual Homes)
  • Business Patrols
    (Individual Businesses, Business Parks, Shopping Centers, Business Condos, etc.)
  • Premise Posting
    (We help deter crime by posting our signs at the entrance to your property.)

Our Patrol Services provide qualified personnel that will perform special Opening or Closing functions, Physical Checks, and Drive-By Checks at your property as frequently as necessary. An extensive training program provides our personnel with the expertise required to handle the full range of security issues that may arise.

Our Patrol Officers will physically check the perimeter of your property and buildings, check gates, fences, doors, and windows to insure that the property is secure. This service can be provided for residential, commercial, or industrial customers. We provide a definite level of security that discourages criminals from targeting your property.

A strong advantage that Tri City Patrol, Inc. has is that we have the ability to provide our own 'back-up' of Officers. This means that if an Officer at one of our patrol sites needs assistance, or has an emergency situation, he or she can notify the Tri City Patrol, Inc. Dispatcher on duty of the situation, and additional Patrol Officers will immediately respond to the on-site Officer's needs. This provides added coverage to our clients (at no extra cost), and increased Officer safety.

What will Mobile Patrols do for you? The objective of this service is to provide our customers with total "peace-of-mind," a sense of securing knowing that their properties are being looked after when they are not there. With the dramatic increase in crime, it is a measure we all must take to insure the safety and security of our homes and businesses.

How does a Patrol Service work? Tri City Patrol, Inc. will complete the contracted number of patrols agreed upon, daily and weekly. In completing the checks of your property, we make certain that all areas of the property have been checked and are secured as they should be. The Security Patrols are done on a random basis from night to night, so as not to give the criminals a set time for us to be on the property.

On-Site Security Officers

An On-Site Security Officer is a Security Officer who is situated at one site or one location. The advantage of an On-Site Officer is that you have a dedicated service and you are providing 100% visible security the total time that the On-Site Officer is on duty. The disadvantage is that it can be costly. It is important to analyze the costs verses the benefits when considering this security option over the Mobile Patrol.


The On-Site Security Officer provides a high-visibility security presence ideal for nighttime inspection of your property and grounds. During the hours of duty, an On-Site Security Officer on patrol helps minimize the occurance of damage or theft to your property, and provides a quick response to disturbances of the peace.

While on duty, the On-Site Security Officer can lock and unlock your pool area, clubhouse, laundry rooms, or other designated areas. The Officer can also ensure that the pool area is utilized solely by residents and their guests, and that the area is not used after-hours. Other functions of the On-Site Officer: conduct light checks, parking enforcement, response to complaints, general security of the property, etc.

Our On-Site Security Officers are fully trained for a variety of duties. All Officers are in radio contact with our 24-hour Dispatch Center. Regular walking patrols of the premises and grounds are made with physical checks of doors, windows, and any other areas required to insure security.

All On-Site Security Officers are licensed through the State of California, Department of Consumer Affairs, Bureau of Security and Investigative Services. They are trained not only in security, but also in public relations, to ensure that they are approachable and responsive to every persons needs.

Key Benefits of On-Site Security Officers include:

  • Unbeatable coverage and response times.
  • Highly visible Officers deter and prevent crime.
  • Perform time-saving lock-ups on property so you don't have to.

Parking Control and Enforcement

In compliance with State and local law, and for the safety of the community, Tri City Patrol, Inc. Parking Enforcement program will:

  • Issue parking violations and facilitate the removal of vehicles that are illegally parked in Fire Lanes and Handicapped Spaces.
  • Assist in setting up guidelines and procedures for Permit Parking in Residential and Commercial parking areas.
  • Enforce the established Parking Rules and Regulations for your community.
  • Facilitate the removal of abandoned or inoperable vehicles.
  • Issue parking violations and facilitate the removal of vehicles not in compliance with property Rules and Regulations.

Not only does enforcement of Parking Rules allow for authorized persons to find a parking place, it also dramatically decreases property crime.

Tri City Patrol is not a towing company. We use towing companies that are established, have a good reputation, and are in good standing with local law enforcement agencies.

Legal Document Services

Tri City Patrol, Inc. offers fast and reliable service of all court and legal documents. All documents are considered a priority and receive immediate attention. Most documents are served no later than three days from the date we receive them.

Examples of a few of the types of Documents we serve:

* Summons and Complaints * Subpoenas * Judgments
* Small Claims * Termination of Tenancy *

Fees for Legal Document Services include:

$45.00* per Document, and 59¢ per mile
*Three (3) attempts will be made to serve documents. If documents cannot be served, the client can elect to continue to have attempts to serve at a cost of $5.00 per additional attempt and 59¢ per mile

One of the most uncomfortable duties for any Landlord or Property Manager is serving legally-required Eviction Notices. For such services, a uniformed Tri City Patrol Officer is the ideal alternative, since tenants may react unfavorably to being served. Our Officers will serve the required preliminary and final Eviction Notices as needed.

Special Event Services

Although the majority of our clients contract for a long term, there are times that a client or organization may require the services of one or more Security Officers for a special event - for just a few hours, a day, or for several days.

Special Event Services may require one or more of the following:

** Security Officer(s) ** Bike Patrol ** Vehicle Patrol **

Examples of some of the Special Events we have covered include:

  • High School and Middle School Events - games, meetings, etc.
  • City Fairs, Street Fairs, and Carnivals
  • Auctions and Estate Sales
  • Weddings
  • Concerts
  • Private Parties

Communications Center and Dispatch Station

The heart of every security operation is its Communications Center and Dispatch Station. While other Security Companies maintain contact with clients, field officers, and emergency services via an answering machine, a tape message center, or an answering service, WE DO NOT! We believe it is important for our clients to speak with live personnel.

We at Tri City Patrol, Inc. believe that a responsible security firm needs a dedicated 24-hour per day, seven days per week Communications Center and Dispatch Station. It is critical to have an actual trained security dispatcher on the other end of the phone when you call. Our Communications Center and Dispatch Station logs all calls and dispatches Officers to the point of need.

Remember, at Tri City Patrol, Inc. you are always connected to our Communications Center when you call for assistance.
