By investing time and resources in carefully selecting and training our security officers, Cambridge Security can provide residential communities with a high quality service, and the continuity so essential to creating a sense of community.

Doorman/Concierge/Lobby Security

Our concierge and doormen have three roles: ensuring the safety of residents, protecting property, and enhancing quality of life for the residents.

They also are proactive when it comes to building maintenance. Sometimes, it’s as simple as calling a resident when a parking lot patrol finds a flat tire or notifying maintenance of burnt-out light bulbs in stairwells.

Gated Communities

Quaint as it often looks, the guardhouse at the entrance to a gated community functions as the development’s nerve center. The security officers manning the guardhouse manage a complex stream of visitors, deliveries, and resident requests.
Once assigned, Cambridge Security officers control entry points and patrol the grounds with vigilance and courtesy. Drawing on their experience and on their knowledge of the community, they document every incident and irregularity. This information is reported to our 24-hour National Command Center, through which the officers and their supervisors work with the client and local law enforcement, if necessary, to resolve security threats.

Campus and Parking Lot Security

IMG_7424-car-employmentCambridge Security will conduct an assessment of your campus and parking lot, identifying vulnerable areas and making recommendations on how to improve safety. We provide mobile patrols, foot patrols, and bike patrols for campus and parking lot security. Our security officers are all equipped with radios, allowing us to deliver a rapid response. As part of our daily monitoring routine, we compile information such as daily lighting reports and number of residents assisted. We provide copies of all reports to the facilities manager. Cambridge partners with local law enforcement to provide better security services.
