Gated Community Security
Developing customized security solutions for safe and secure residential communities
At Securitas USA, we understand the things that your community values the most, such as creating an environment where residents and guests feel safe, secure and welcome. We also understand that each community is unique and has its own challenges and concerns, so our security solutions are customized to help meet your goals as well as fit within your budget.
An Integrated Approach
After a full Operational Analysis, a Securitas USA branch manager will address your community’s unique security needs via a customized combination of:
On-site Guarding: Officers at your gatehouse make a friendly first impression and double as goodwill ambassadors
Remote Guarding: Helps increase coverage by enabling scheduled video tours and remote escorts, and in many cases, helps reduce your community’s total security investment.
Mobile Guarding: Officers who conduct daily tours in our clearly marked vehicles can help add an extra security presence and assist in deterring unwanted behavior.
Beyond the Basics
Our services for gated communities can be augmented with these additional areas of support:
- Access and traffic control
- Covenant enforcement
- Life safety
- Law enforcement partnership
- Supplementary services (events, parking enforcement, pool access, etc.)
Security is a priority at Wilson Commencement Park, a residential community of single parents and children from struggling economic areas of Rochester, NY. More than 75 percent of the residents are previous victims of domestic violence.
All gated communities have something in common. There is a gate and there is someone who needs to open the gate for residents and visitors. Securitas recognized the need for developing this service and created a solution including the right technology and the right people.
The Capistrano Bay District, in Orange County, CA, is a gated enclave of 186 homes, all built on beach-front lots. The area was developed in 1927, and in 1959 was designated as a Special Services District under the California Code of Law, meaning that homeowners jointly are responsible for providing various municipal services for the community.
When Marvin Vasquez was made Director of Security at Stoneybrook West, a residential community in central Florida, he knew that picking a contract security vendor would be an arduous task. The chosen security firm would need to pass muster with the community’s manager and board of directors, as well as Vasquez’s own stringent standards.
Located about 20 miles south of Myrtle Beach in South Carolina’s Low Country, Pawley’s Plantation is a semi-private residential and resort community featuring a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. The community consists of approximately 600 properties; year-round residents live in single family homes and townhouses while the condominiums are mostly rented to those seeking golf vacations. A clubhouse on the premises offers banquet and dining facilities.
Securitas USA provides security services at seven residential communities in the Hilton Head area, in addition to the island’s hospital and two municipal court buildings.
Rossmoor, an award-winning, senior adult community located 25 miles east of San Francisco in California, hosts more than 9,200 seniors at an average age of 78. The 2,200 acre property includes amenities such as golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools and a wide variety of daily education and recreation classes.
Securitas USA is the leading provider of contract security services for the private plantation communities on Hilton Head Island and beyond, offering a wide range of residential services.
Securitas USA provides contract security services to the Moss Creek community on Hilton Head Island. “We consider Securitas USA services to be an extension of the amenities we provide,” says Jill Cox, Assistant to the General Manager of Moss Creek, a private golf, tennis, boating and equestrian community of about 1,000 residences. “The officers are our goodwill ambassadors, and at the same time, they know what questions to ask visitors and what to look for in vehicles.”
