National Alarm Response

As your nominated professional keyholders for your intruder, fire or CCTV systems, upon notification of an activation, we will dispatch a licensed Security Officer to attend.

Upon arrival, they execute a thorough external and internal check of the premises and then investigate the cause of the activation. If required, we liaise with the necessary security companies to reset your systems and leave the property secure.

In the event of a serious incident, such as burglary, fire or flood, we will remain on-site and manage the situation as required (e.g. liaise with the emergency services, boarding, glazing and locksmith companies) and only leave the property once it is re-secured or upon your instruction.

Mobile patrols

We provide mobile patrols tailor-made to suit your requirements which when combined with our professional keyholding service, are a cost-effective alternative to traditional static guarding, which can be prohibitively expensive. Each patrol contract is designed to suit the site, from external patrols at random times to thorough internal patrols at set times to ensure a visible deterrent exists to any would-be troublemakers or opportunists in the area.

We’re there for you

We attend at agreed times to unlock or lock-up your premises. Our highly trained Security Officers execute these services to ensure your property is fully secured and therefore there is no risk to your staff having to lock up alone, or hold keys and codes.

Someone locked out?

We provide access on an ad-hoc basis for a multitude of tasks; to provide access for contractors outside of working hours, meet deliveries or escort vulnerable lone-workers offsite.

Emergency contractors

In the event of an emergency, we can supply a selection of pre-vetted tradesmen, such as glaziers, boarding specialists and locksmiths. Our contractor helpdesk will manage them on your behalf.

Lone Worker Risk

We can tailor-make a response service to protect your staff who are operating as lone workers.

Temporary guarding

Short term static guarding can be provided to protect your premises during periods of high risk.

Empty premises inspections

We can provide comprehensive inspections and reports for empty premises.
