Thank you for taking a few moments to learn about our agency. As you already know, police departments across the country are faced with millions of dollars in budget cuts resulting in fewer officers on patrol, delayed response times to calls for assistance, and transportation of prisoners often leaves a patrol area with less coverage, all of which over-taxes police officers with downtime. Due to these issues, many communities are struggling to maintain safe and secure environments for their families, friends, and businesses.
You may ask "What does this have to do with me?" Well, we all know the frustration of observing illicit behavior, suspicious persons, vandalism, and thefts. We call 911 and try to maintain visual contact with the bad guy. Unfortunately the bad guy is long gone when the police finally arrive.
IT IS NOT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT'S FAULT!!! Many officers starting their shifts log into their car computers just to find a multitude of pending calls stacked up. They are working as hard as they can to resolve other calls that may be of a higher priority which often leads to saving lives. Frustrating? certainly. But there is help, and the answer is our agency, METRO-COUNTY ENFORCEMENT SERVICES - WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!.
Every business has a beginning, and every business starts with a passion for providing products and services to its customers. METRO-COUNTY ENFORCEMENT SERVICES was created with the vision of providing SPECIAL SECURITY PATROLS to businesses of all types and for residential communities in an effort to promote a safe and secure way of life for families within our communities.
At METRO-COUNTY, we strive to assist the Law Enforcement Community by handling many types of calls for service from our clients, call that may be considered a lower priority for law enforcement which will free them up to provide a quicker response to higher priority emergencies, many of which can lead to saving lives. Our highly visible patrol cars help deter criminal activities in communities where law enforcement is often understaffed due to budget constraints.
At METRO-COUNTY it is not our intention to imply that law enforcement agencies are incapable of doing their jobs, however it does not hurt to have an extra well trained and qualified set of eyes and ears from an agency such as ours. We are both proactive and reactive.
