When the weather is gloomy, there’s a number of steps we take to ensure that the quality of the security service we provide isn’t compromised. The security equipment we provide to our security officers, the methodical approach we adopt, and our dedication to ongoing excellent training make the weather a non-significant factor in our day to day operations.
