Physical Security: Parking lots security

Modern urban infrastructure includes a large number of parking lots, garages and parking areas. These places are areas of high risk for car thefts. Therefore, it is necessary to pay special attention to the issue of parking lots protection.


What are the peculiarities of parking lots security?

Parking lots and parking areas security minimizes the risks associated with vehicles and parking space maintenance. There are two categories of parking areas:

  • permanent - garages, stationary parking lots, territories of private car companies;
  • temporary - parking lots near shopping malls, gas stations and car repair shops.
  • Ensuring the safety of mobile property includes a number of features that need to be taken into account during the provision of services:

  • control over the movement of vehicles through the parking area;
  • peculiarities of cars;
  • control regime inside the facility;
  • control over compliance with fire safety rules;
  • ensuring inspection during the exit of vehicles;
  • equipping the protected object with technical security systems.
  • In the course of its work, the security service has at its disposal all the documents that make up the vehicle database. At temporary parking lots, guards only observe what is happening in order to prevent theft and damage to property.

    In closed areas, guards record the technical characteristics of the vehicles to prevent unwarranted claims to staff by car owners. The organization of a high security inside the facility may include a system of passes and a fixed parking space for each vehicle. In temporary parking lots with a large flow of traffic, security personnel are closely monitoring citizens and the territory.

    In permanent parking lots, the exit of vehicles is strictly controlled and driver's identity documents are checked.

    Ensuring security in any territory requires technical equipment, which will involve anti-theft systems, automatic barriers and remote video surveillance.
