During times of austerity, there is a direct correlation with a rise in crime. Constantly rising crime rates and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit are making the role of a Security Guard a more essential one to far more businesses than ever before.
It is more important than ever that business continuity is maintained and any interruption to your business, whether it be caused by vandalism, arson, or theft can potentially lose your company valuable business and needs to be kept to a minimum.
In addition to the training stipulated by the SIA, our security guards are also trained in areas such as basic fire fighting, first aid, customer service and CCTV operation, along with additional training and development to keep up to date on current legislation and counter terrorism awareness.
All of our security guards are well presented in a smart uniform tailored to your needs even wearing your branded uniform or logos. Hi-vis clothing is worn after dusk and on building sites as a health and safety requirement.
For a further and more overt deterrent, we offer both general purpose security dogs and drug/sniffer dogs. Our dog handlers and their canine colleagues can work safely and unobtrusively in crowded spaces where public safety is paramount. Our canine staff are trained to a very high standard and trained to follow their handlers instructions very carefully - At no point well any patrons attending your event or site be in any danger.
We offer a full site security survey, risk assessment and even penetration tests which will help us understand the security needs for your site/building and enable us to offer practical advice and recommendations on a security solution that will add to the protection of your business and assets.
In addition to the security role performed by our patrol staff and desk based security guards, we are able to double up as a customer service point for your building/business and also act as a late night concierge service, thus reducing the requirement for round-the-clock cover.
We have worked with business ranging from small building sites to large country estates and hotels offering services from one guard/concierge to full visibility patrols with patrol dogs and including inspections of vacant premises, loss prevention on building sites or in shops, plain clothed or uniformed loss prevention personnel and canine units for premises or body/person searches.
