Business North Harbour’s eyes and ears

Fri, July 06, 2018

Less theft from cars, fewer burglaries, no damaged street signs, less graffiti.  These are some of the many benefits Business North Harbour's members have enjoyed from nightly security patrols in their area.

Business North Harbour is a business improvement district within Auckland City's North Shore. Its members range from retailers and restaurants, to warehousing and distribution - and everything in between.

Dave Loader, Business North Harbour's crime prevention specialist, says Armourguard patrols the area around six hours a night, at random times. 

"We are committed to keeping our members, their businesses and their customers safe and secure and we won't let up on doing what is necessary to prevent crime," he says.

This commitment has paid off, resulting in significantly less crime in the area since the nightly patrols began. 

"Our members really appreciate this and want the patrols to continue," says Dave.

However, it's not just about providing a security presence; Armourguard's Patrol team are pro-active, reporting problems such as rubbish and potential security threats like open windows or gates at premises, blown street lights, etc.

"Armourguard are our eyes and ears, reporting these things to me and providing solution suggestions so that I can promptly follow up with members and let them know."

As an Armourguard patrol customer, Business North Harbour can access our 'Silvertrac' reporting portal for real-time information every aspect of the patrol service.  Dave also gets a daily report by email, something he finds very useful.
