Positioning Patrol Points
Points need to be easily accessible to all members of staff. Where possible try and locate points where they’re not accessible to members of the public in areas such as waiting rooms where they could easily be removed.
When fitting points, please ensure that you leave enough space around the point to allow the phone to lay flat against it. If fitting points with the adhesive backing, make sure the surface is clean before attaching.
