Patrol Plus offers a range of security services, including consulting, alarm monitoring, stationed guards, and mobile (car or bicycle) patrols. According to their website, the majority of their business is in the area of providing mobile patrols to apartment complexes and retail shopping centers.
Patrol Plus employees wear green pseudo-police uniforms. They drive police-style Ford Crown Victorias and Chevy Impalas. However, their vehicles have yellow light-strobe bars, as opposed to the red and blue ones used by police.
Their employees identify by rank (such as Sgt., Lt., etc.) and carry firearms, tasers, batons, pepper spray, handcuffs, two-way radios, and other police paraphernalia, although they are not actual police officers. Their training includes 8 hours of orientation and 40 hours of on-the-job training, with an additional 8 hour refresher course each year and semi-annual firearms qualification.
They generally patrol apartment complexes and retail shopping centers around three times each night and respond to resident complaints. If needed, they will get out and tend to a situation. There officers appear to be well trained, very professional and reflect a good image for the security industry.
- Having cars towed for lack of a parking permit - they partner with a few tow companies (Interestingly, according to CVC 22658, tow companies cannot enforce general parking on their own; they have to be authorized to tow a particular vehicle by an owner, resident, or agent - in this case the security company.)
- Kicking people out of the pool at closing time
- Distributing eviction or other notices
- Telling people to be quiet, not to drink in the parking lot, etc.
- General crime deterrence
