CSI have recently purchased a fleet of TREK e-bikes (electric) – pedal assist.
E-bikes are the future of bicycling in my opinion, especially in an urban environment,” said CSI founder Stuart Kenny. “You can cover long distances at a good speed, respond to wide ranging incidents in hard to get to areas and get as much workout as you want.”
The e-bikes have been specially designed for CSI. The power assist makes it easier for officers to pedal. They can travel as fast as 25 km an hour, enabling officers to at times keep up with traffic and in some instances move faster. E-bikes allow officers to respond quickly to incidents with less fatigue, expand their patrol area range and enhance community engagement. Their stealthy nature is critical for intercepting criminal activities.
For example, if you drive around the corner and someone is attempting to steal a motor vehicle and hears a vehicle before it arrives on the scene, the person of interest hides, and the vehicle drives right past. Then he goes back to his business stealing the motor vehicle. Therefore, CSI are excited about that stealth component and other aspects (to e-bikes).
They are a great fit for pedestrian environments and crowded places, particularly areas that motor vehicles are unable to respond – and all the places that use regular bicycles now. However, CSI believe e-bikes offer greater advantages over normal bicycles.
It is great for officers because it allows them to get places faster than with a regular bike and when you get there you’re not fatigued.
One of the pre purchase tests we completed involved driving the bikes up a steep hill. The officers riding them were able to reach 25 km an hour with ease. The Bosch e–bike system is one of the top end motors on the market.
The CSI Security Bike Patrol team see the new initiative to connect and actively engage with the community using a personable approach, as it is effective on many levels. Our service is available anywhere, anytime, and can be used as a permanent fixture or ad hoc service.
Below are some key areas of operations – however not limited to:
Yes, officers on duty are dressed in uniform unless performing plain clothes operations. In this case, they carry a CSI wallet badge for identification purposes and WA Police approved Security licence listing all licence classes and photographic evidence.
Best to keep an eye on www.seek.com.au where we advertise job vacancies. If you are interested in joining the CSI team you can contact us direct. We are happy to keep your details on our system and contact you should a vacancy become available.
CSI are happy to prepare an ongoing maintenance arrangement. Our technicians will conduct complete system checks, perform necessary upgrades, and cleaning to ensure your surveillance system is active and not under performing.
On a regular basis we provide refresher training such as de-escalation of force, predictive profiling, effective community engagement, tactical and operational intelligence, report writing, personable and tactical communication, ethics and professionalism.
Depending on the assignment, officers can work individually or in a group setting. For example, investigations and consulting are performed with one officer, special events or high crime hot spot areas may have additional officers.
Most insurance companies appreciate you lowering the risk of burglary by installing a monitored security system, and reward you by giving you a discount on your premium, a lower excess or both.
Essentially, Security Risk Assessments allow you to identify, analyse and evaluate the security risks that face your organisation, its assets and its people. From here, you become better equipped to mitigate or address these risks.
By conducting an SRA, all areas of your organisation become responsible for and aware of the security risks they face. This leads to greater communication, collaboration, decision making and preparation from every corner of your organisation. Security Risk Assessments are designed to identify security weaknesses within your organisation and to design an effective action plan in response. This ultimately strengthens your organisation, allows you to take ownership of your security and to allocate resources effectively.
