SMP has a long history of providing just the right security, tailored for your specific business and neighborhood needs. Whether it’s mobile patrol ready to leap into action or a constant onsite presence, SMP is at your service.


Mobile Patrol

Mobile Patrol Services offer you security that acts as a deterrent, provides physical backup, and brings peace of mind, at a fraction of the cost of onsite, round the clock security guards. While they are not a constant physical presence, our mobile patrol officers are on duty at all hours, ready to answer and respond to your call anytime. And for many businesses, that’s more than enough, especially with our highly trained professionals on the job.

Our Mobile Security Clients include:

  • Financial Institutions
  • Apartment Buildings & Condo Complexes
  • Retailers & Shopping Malls
  • Construction Sites
  • Government Buildings
  • Entertainment Venues
  • Places of Worship
  • Manufacturing Facilities & Warehouses
  • Special Event Sites

Our Mobile Patrol is effective for many reasons:

Our patrol officers undergo a thorough selection process and then trained rigorously for more than 100 hours before they are sent out to patrol independently. Each officer knows how to identify abnormal situations and act in the interest of prevention first and foremost. SMP takes pride in serving the Sioux Falls community through its high caliber security officers, so you can rest easy and sleep well.

One of the greatest methods of security is prevention and deterrence. Our vehicles and our officers are highly visible, with law enforcement style uniforms, equipment, and systems to ward off criminals and potential ne’er do wells. We maintain top of the line, professional grade security in the form of light bars, spotlights, GPS tools, and dashboard cameras to stop crime before it happens, the ultimate goal in security.

SMP Mobile Patrol vehicles are supported at all times by a 24/7 dispatch and operations center located in Sioux Falls, a TrackTik security workforce management system, a FleetOutlook GPS fleet tracking & vehicle management system, Verizon Wireless data communication, and MOTOTRBO digital mobile radios, all cutting edge technology to ensure our officers can keep you safe and secure.

Our Mobile Patrol officers know these streets, the neighborhoods, the businesses, the people. With more than 65 years of experience, we train our people to be familiar with the lay of the land they are protecting. No criminal can sneak through a back alley or into a dark corner that we don’t know about. We have the home field advantage, and we use it. Available 24/7, for 65 plus years, never having missed a day, our security officers are on the job.

Your security is OUR business!

Depending on your needs, we can provide security guards that are either armed or unarmed:

  • Armed Guards – Best when people or valuables must be secured or escorted, when you want to prevent a known threat, or you have a regulation that requires an armed guard. Armed officers may be in uniform or plain clothes, depending on the situation. Our guards are trained in the use of force, meet state firearms qualification standards, and are licensed to carry.
  • Unarmed Guards – Act as a deterrent from illegal behavior, can improve safety, can handle emergency or escalating customer service situations, and provides peace of mind. These security officers work in a wide range of locations and situations including retail stores, schools, banks, call centers, hospitals, food stores, manufacturing facilities, and residential communities.

Both types of guards are trained in physical defense techniques to provide protection.

Our security guards have training in: legal authority, post orders, report writing, radio communication, patrolling, first aid/CPR, emergency preparedness, active shooter response, security camera and access control systems, self-defense, less than lethal use of force, verbal de-escalation, interviewing, and customer service.
