Guard Tour System

D3’s Guard Tour System optimizes security coverage and manages officer presence in real-time, capturing all of the data generated from day to day security operations. Managers deploy their assets, assign routes and track performance while security officers in the field use D3 Mobile devices to perform scheduled and self-initiated routes, scan RFID or barcoded checkpoints, create high quality incident reports and receive dispatches. The intuitive nature of the D3 Mobile device, available for Apple iOS, Android and Windows Mobile, boosts overall security performance while reducing costs and training time. Any data produced is synchronized with D3 suite of product modules and made available to decision-makers in the form of managerial reports. The easy-to-use software also includes a drag and drop style guard scheduling application called Visual Roster, suitable for the largest security operations. This allows management to schedule employees, assign routes and track staff effectiveness through coverage reports. The user-friendly interface lets Managers and Supervisors create and edit master and daily rosters. Front line staff are able to input self-initiated activities, providing a summary of each guard’s daily duty.

Route Building

In D3, Guard Tour Patrols consist of a series of fixed or roaming checkpoints which officers must complete during their shift. Every route created can be easily activated, assigned or changed from the Route Library. For fixed routes, a pre-set order and schedule are required, ensuring that officers complete the route in a specific order and complete each checkpoint in a specific time frame.  Checkpoint order and route duration can be changed quickly and easily by resizing, dragging or dropping them on the intuitive scheduling feature.

Checkpoints

D3′s Guard Tour Patrol System optimizes the use of checkpoints by giving customers the ability to program questions and prompts to each checkpoint. For example, when an officer scans a certain checkpoint, he may be asked to record a temperature, check a fire extinguisher or lock a door. Once his or her action has been recorded, only then is the checkpoint complete. This additional activity is designed to leverage officer presence as much as possible, in order to capture and create high quality security data and increase the effectiveness of every asset in the field.

Visual Roster

Visual Roster is comprehensive guard force management tool where managers and officers can easily define, modify, log, print and review shifts, tours, checkpoints, officer activities, incident reports and dispatches. Using Visual Roster’s intuitive drag-and-drop functionality, Supervisors can easily manage the day-to-day activities of their guards, and quickly make changes in any aspect of a tour.

Guard Tour Devices

D3′s Guard Tour System leverages the latest smart phone technology, including :

  • Apple iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad
  • Android
  • Windows Mobile

The D3 mobile application transforms these advanced devices by empowering security officers with Incident Reporting, Guard Tour, Security Dispatch and Post Orders modules. Officers can quickly snap photos from an incident scene, and upload an unlimited number directly to an incident report. Or, to fill a narrative section of a report, an officer can utilize the voice-to-text feature, which ensures the officer spends time providing security, rather than manually filing reports.

 

Coverage Maps & Reports

D3 can map your facility and overlay checkpoints, officer routes and incident reports to quickly identify gaps in coverage. This feature allows managers or supervisors to easily adjust their deployment to match the current risk or threat. By analyzing and comparing incident and activity data with existing patrol routes and coverage, supervisors can create regular or ad hoc reports that assist in summarizing the effectiveness of current coverage and identify lapses or areas for improvement.

Analysis & Reporting

Like the entire D3 suite of software, the Guard Tour system captures and creates high quality security data that can be analyzed to extract business intelligence and inform better countermeasures. There are a variety of analysis tools built into the security guard software, plus data from Guard Tour can contribute to any number of reports created in the Security Analytics component of the greater D3 suite.

  • Checkpoint completions/percentages
  • Guard tour duration
  • Missed/skipped checkpoints
  • Checkpoint status
