Construction Security FAQs
The Fire Watch Program is a service that watches for hazards after hot work has been performed on a renovation or new construction project. The Fire Watch Program also takes effect when the fire protection system is out of service. CSIPS agents provide foot patrol of the fire watch area, ensure that safe conditions are maintained during the hot work, know how to report a fire or other emergency situation, and are trained in fire safety procedures and the use of fire extinguishing equipment.
CSIPS agents have been trained in the use of sophisticated camera systems in monitoring construction job sites. Utilizing remote and temporary camera systems, the agent has the ability to monitor a site with less manpower, in addition to increasing the ability to observe what is occurring at any given time frame. CSIPS also has the capability to provide overhead aerial photos of the construction site as the project moves forward, permitting the agent to conduct ongoing threat assessments.
At CSIPS, a majority of our agents are current or retired law enforcement officers and have the ability to network with local law enforcement agencies. When required, CSIPS agents will write a documented report of a criminal occurrence, will provide a signed citizen’s arrest form for the local jurisdiction, and will testify in court. At CSIPS, we have found that providing a “zero tolerance” for criminal behavior, and working with local law enforcement agencies, reduces the likelihood of a crime occurring on the client’s property.
