Static Guarding

What is manned guarding?

Manned Guarding is the term associated with trained security personnel who protect property and / or assets, often over longer periods, frequently overnight or during off-peak sessions.

One or more security guards / manned guards may be required to protect premises or properties from unauthorised access, or manage access in a secure way.

Security Guards patrolling are a visual deterrent which is extremely effective in reducing anti-social behaviour and acts of crime.

The services our guards can provide include;

  • Access control

  • Alarm and CCTV monitoring
  • Visitor escort service
  • Shop and Building site security
  • Security patrols – supported by Electronic Tagging Technology.

  • Combined reception/security desk service

In the majority of cases, employing security personnel to patrol your premises is likely to stop the majority of criminal events, at least the opportunist thief looking for an easy target. Whilst there is no guarantee, a visible guard is a proven deterrent in most cases.

Defeating the Opportunist Thief

It’s widely recognised that the opportunist thief, is looking for an easy steal. A weakness in your defences might be broken security lights, fake cameras, obvious signs of a poorly maintained alarm system etc.

Keeping your security up to date and being extra vigilant in your approach to security, will improve your chances of avoiding becoming a victim of crime.

Proactive Crime Reduction

If someone is planning to trespass and / or perform a criminal act, they will be looking for an opportunity to minimise their risk of being caught. If a guard is patrolling your premises, the risk is much higher. The likelihood of them initiating criminal activity, is reduced where manned guards are in operation.
