Lobby Security

It makes sense to increase your bank’s protection with an off-duty law enforcement presence. The challenge is to maintain high police visibility without creating an oppressive atmosphere for your customers. However, officers with the proper disposition can be difficult to locate if you do not have the time to properly vet the officers. That’s where we come in.

We offer armed and unarmed off-duty police officers with the temperament and experience to effectively work in your facility. Having visible deterrents inside your branches can help prevent robberies and crime. Officers are available to assist with security services such as last-minute requests, workplace violence, roving patrols, post-hurricane coverage and more. Our team of experts can also visit your locations, then make recommendations on a customized security program to ensure you and your people are safe and secure.

Software Enabled Solutions

Protos was founded on the realization that the security industry was not adopting modern standards and technology. We have been innovating and transforming the industry ever since. We were the first to offer a complete security management dashboard for managing a manned security program. Using any internet-connected device, our clients can view real-time information as well as a data archives for valuable long-term analysis.

And through Protos Labs, our technology division, we are continuing to develop industry leading software to increase operational oversight for our clients.

The platform is a guard force management tool that delivers improved transparency, accuracy, accountability and efficiency.

Many customers also enjoy knowing that feedback provided on our software feeds the software development pipeline so future iterations of the client portal include enhancements driven by customer demand.

A Customer Success Team

Protos clients receive multiple layers of support. All clients are assigned a Service Agent as their single point of contact, and they are available for day-to-day matters as well as routine service assessments. National Account clients receive additional support through the Strategic Account Management (SAM) Program, ensuring we are scaling to meet your needs as your security program grows and changes. The SAM acts as a client advocate and offers strategic security program guidance.

In addition to monitoring daily events, these teams assist with billing and invoicing, ensuring post fulfillment, new service requests, changes to existing assignments, communicating client portal updates and enhancements, and generally having the health of your security program in mind.
