As a licensed watch guard and patrol agency, Command Security furnishes security officers to its customers to protect people or property and to prevent the theft of property. In this regard, the Company principally conducts business by providing guards and other personnel who are, depending on the particular requirements of the customer, uniformed or plain clothed, armed or unarmed, and who patrol in marked radio cars or stand duty on the premises at stationary posts such as fire stations, reception areas or video monitors. The Company's security officers maintain contact with headquarters or supervisors via car radio or hand-held radios. In addition to the more traditional tasks associated with access control and theft prevention, guards respond to emergency situations and report to appropriate authorities fires, natural disasters, work accidents, strikes, and medical crises. The Company also provides private investigation services.
The Company provides a variety of uniformed services for domestic and international air carriers including pre-board passenger screeners, checkpoint security supervisors, wheelchair escorts, skycaps, baggage handlers and uniformed guards for cargo security areas.
The Company provides guard services to many of its industrial and commercial customers on a 24-hour basis, 365 days per year. For these customers, guards are on hand to provide plant security, access control, personnel security checks and traffic and parking control and to protect against fire, theft, sabotage, and safety hazards. The remaining customers include retail establishments, hospitals, governmental units and promoters of special events. The services provided to these customers may require armed as well as unarmed security officers. The Company also provides specialized vehicle patrol and inspection services and personal protection services to key executives and high profile personalities from time to time.
To ensure that adequate protection requirements have been established prior to commencing service to a customer, the Company evaluates the customer's site and prepares a recommendation for any needed changes to existing security programs or services. Surveys typically include an examination and evaluation of perimeter controls, lighting, personnel and vehicle identification and control, visitor controls, electronic alarm reporting systems, safety and emergency procedures, key controls and security force manning levels. While surveys and recommendations are prepared by the Company, the security plan and coverage requirements are determined by the customer. Operational procedures and individual post orders are reviewed and/or rewritten by the Company to meet the requirements of the security plan and coverage determined by the customer.
In order to provide a high level of service without incurring large overhead expenses, the Company establishes offices close to its customers and delegates responsibility and decision making to its local managers. The Company emphasizes the role of its managers by assigning to each one responsibility for both sales and service. The Company believes that in most situations the combination of both sales and service responsibilities in a single individual results in better supervision and quality control and greater responsiveness to customer concerns.
The Company generally renders its security services pursuant to a standard form security services agreement which specifies the personnel and/or equipment to be provided by the Company at designated locations and the rates therefore, which typically are hourly rates per person. Rates vary depending on base, overtime and holiday time worked, and the term of engagement. In most cases, the Company assumes responsibility for scheduling and paying all guards and to provide uniforms, equipment, instruction, supervision, fringe benefits, bonding and workers' compensation insurance. These agreements also provide customers with flexibility by permitting reduction or expansion of the guard force on relatively short notice. The Company is responsible for preventing the interruption of security service as a consequence of illness, vacations or resignations. In most cases the customer also agrees not to hire any security personnel used by the Company for at least one year after the termination of the engagement. Each agreement may be terminated by the customer, typically with no prior notice or short notice (usually 30 days). In addition, the Company may terminate an agreement immediately upon default by the customer in payment of monies due there under or if there is filed by or against the customer a bankruptcy petition or if any other act of bankruptcy occurs.
The Company has a full integrated computerized scheduling and information system. The scheduling of security officers, while time-consuming, is a most important function of any security company. Management believes the system substantially reduces the time a manager must spend on scheduling daily security officer hours and allows the Company to fulfill customer needs by automatically selecting those security officers that fit the customer's requirements.
