Manned Guarding 

Often overlooked in business planning, security is actually one of the key elements of a successful business. A visible manned guarding station acts as a deterrent for illegal activity, making your premises feel too risky a target for criminals. 

Our security guard services are also a great addition to your existing security defence, as guards can watch CCTV for potential issues, act as door staff and provide on-the-spot personal protection for customers and staff. Our security contractors are fully trained and hold valid SIA licences, vetted to BS 7858 2012 standards. 

Despite massive advances in security technologies, there is no more effective protection for your home or business than a manned guarding service. 

Our security personnel can manage a variety of complex tasks and scenarios, providing support with: 

  1. Risk assessment
  2. Maintaining workplace health and safety
  3. De-escalation of violence and dangerous situations
  4. Crowd control
  5. Reporting of security breaches
  6. Crisis management

How It Works

  1. On arriving at your premises, our security officers will sign in and report to the assigned management personnel. At this stage they will take receipt of keys and alarm codes, and find out any information they need for their upcoming shift.
  2. Security guards take an initial patrol of your premises, making a note of anything important, or any issues that need to be followed up on.
  3. Manned guarding services can refer to a security officer remaining stationary on-site in a guard station for the rest of their shift, or staying mobile around the perimeter of your premises, depending on your preference. They will take regular patrols as required, sign in guests and visitors and can even take in post if necessary.
  4. Any incidents that occur are logged ready for reporting, and the officer will take any necessary action if needed.
  5. Our security guard service guarantees that the buildings are checked over in a final patrol and locked up fully before the guard leaves.
  6. You will get a full report of each shift emailed to you on the completion of that shift, with information about actions taken, and any follow-ups required.
