With the latest news reporting the highest daily figures of coronavirus, and half of colds being the new variant Omicron, the risk of a second lockdown post-Christmas could become a reality. For businesses across the UK, this could mean a risk of facing closure, or perhaps being forced to close due to staff absences. If this is the case, you’ll need to consider the security implications and how to keep your business secure in these uncertain times.
We have four key services that are particularly well suited to keeping empty buildings safe.
- Manned Guarding
Having security guards on-site is arguably the best deterrent to crime and the quickest way to effectively manage an incident on site. We can deploy security officers to be at your site whenever you need them, whether that’s weekend working or throughout the night. Should a lockdown prevail, as keyworkers we will continue to provide our security services, working hard to keep professionally supervise your business premises.
- Mobile Patrols
With clearly marked patrol vehicles, our mobile patrol service is brilliant for larger business sites. We can cover a large area, whether that be an entire industrial site or the perimeter of your business. Our vehicles alone have clear branding showing they’re from a security provider, and this acts as an excellent deterrent to crime, without even considering the benefits of trained security officers and their excellent capabilities.
- CCTV monitoring
If having security officers patrolling your site is deemed unnecessary, or perhaps doesn’t align with your budget, investing in a CCTV monitoring service is the best option for you. Here you benefit from trained security professionals reacting to suspicious CCTV footage, able to jump into action should the need arise.
- Alarm response
Finally, there’s our alarm response. This is, by nature, a much more reactive service and therefore might not prevent break-ins and vandalism but can handle such situations as quickly and safely as possible. Our security officers can also detain individuals until the local authorities arrive.
If you’re looking to further your career within the security industry, please check on our website or email us an up-to-date copy of your C.V. We never subcontract, we invest in training, and we work hard to support our staff. You will need to hold a valid SIA license before applying.
