Manned guarding is our most highly rated service and effective service, and as such is the security service we’d most highly recommend to those enquiring about security requirements at their business. Having trained, SIA licensed and experienced security officers is the most effective way of eliminating criminal damage and theft, making it one of the most proactive security measures that you can take. But was it manned guarding and how does it differ from our other security services?

What is manned guarding?

It is a security service that involves placing security guards at your premises, usually out of hours but sometimes when staff are still present. However, the manned guarding security service that we offer is much more than a security patrol of your premises. Our security guards are all trained to Security Industry Authority (SIA) standards and are fitted with body cameras for audible and CCTV footage, ensuring you have a professional security officer managing your property at all times. We also never subcontract, so we know each and every individual representing us.

What do security officers do whilst conducting manned guarding duties?

Primarily, manned guarding security officers are there to prevent and handle crime. They’re ready to step in, and call the local authorities if needed.

  • Access and exit control
  • Out of hours reception duties
  • Reporting building defects or hazardous areas

We believe that it is better to be proactive than reactive when it comes to security. It's vital that your business assets are protected, and your insurance cover is not compromised. We aim to prevent damage, disorder or theft and strive to protect individuals against assault or injury.

We understand that each site will have bespoke requirements, and our security contracts are tailor-made to reflect this. The first step we do is ask you what your specific needs are, and we can work with you to ensure that the right level is security is achieved without breaking your budget.

In summary, manned guarding is an excellent step to take in protecting your business. It decreases the opportunity for theft and vandalism, can reduce your insurance costs and our security guards can raise the alarm should an arson attack, or similar, take place at your premises.
