Supervision of our Security Officers

 

We proactively employ a wide-range of supervisory measures to ensure that our officers are adhering to all policies and procedures established by HUB Security Systems and our clients. These steps include:

 

Routine, unannounced visits and inspections at the officer's assigned work location by supervisory personnel, including site walk-throughs and uniform inspection;

 

Officers must phone hourly from the work site to an on-duty supervisor to provide updates and to ensure the safety of our officers;

 

Regular reviews of all job site logs and reports submitted by our officers to ensure proper detail and quality control;

 

Independent quality control specialists randomly visit with officers and supervisors alike - yet another supervisory level that directly benefits our clients;

 

 

 

The Security Officer's Uniform

 

As they are not police officers, our security officers do not wear police-style uniforms while working for our clients. We have learned through our many years of experience that a 'gentler' approach to our uniforms provides a high level of security without intimidating employees, residents or visitors of our clients. These uniforms also enable us to act as ambassadors on your behalf.

 

We offer two types of uniforms:

 

A blue sports blazer that includes an insignia patch and nametag matched with a white shirt, grey pants, red tie and leather shoes;

 

A long or short-sleeved blue Polo-style shirt with security insignia, khaki pants and seasonal jacket - again with security insignia and nametag.

 

We are certainly open to discuss any additions or changes to our established uniforms that you may require.

 

 

 

Open Lines of communication with our clients

 

Our clients can expect the following from HUB Security Systems:

 

Regularly scheduled meetings between HUB Security Systems senior staff and our clients;

 

Client participation and interviews with our officers to ensure that the client has the right fit in the officer(s) assigned to them;

 

Immediate updating of the Policies and Procedures Manual whenever necessary;

 

24-hour phone service for any and all emergencies;

 

Weekly delivery of all necessary written reports and materials;

 

The final say with regard to the officer(s) assigned to your location.
