National security coverage with the attention only a local company can provide.

We take the quality of the security we provide extremely seriously, and we’re fully aware of the problems that can occur when a business grows. As a national provider of a range of security services, we have grown from humble roots. Started by Nick Carter, we’re hugely proud of the journey our business has taken, but it hasn’t been without strict quality control along the way! There are four key factors to consider, that of recruitment, training, staff appreciation and remote management and we think we’ve done a great job of maintaining quality throughout our history and into our future.

We consistently rely on our security officers to make the right call and to know their limits, knowing when the right time is to call for the local authorities, for example.
