Our aims in the Private Security Industry

we are London based, our services are available anywhere in the United Kingdom (UK).  We are also available to provide Anti-terrorism and Emergency Procedures training anywhere in the world.  Go here to book our security and risk management course, Security risk management courses.

Our job is to protect persons, property and premises by improving feelings of safety and security in our area of assignment.  We aim to ensure that our SIA licensed security guards and SIA licensed door supervisors act always to enhance public confidence in the private security industry.  We do this through the provision of ongoing training to our  Door supervisors as part of our continuous skills and professional development policy.

Specifically we:

  • Provide security training courses for those wishing to obtain their Security Industry Authority (SIA) licence.
  • For this purpose, we provide SIA training for Door Supervisors, Security Guards and CCTV Operators, Security Risk Management course for anti-terrorism and emergency procedures.
  • Provides personnel training to meet sector requirements
  • We provide partnership between the police and our security services.

Our training and operations take account of changes in our society and are continuously developed to meet these factors:

  • High levels of reported crime
  • Increased public fear of crime
  • Threats from public demonstrations
  • Threats from terrorism (bombings) and organised crimes (hijackings and kidnappings)
  • Mass privatization of public property coupled with increased property ownership
  • Increased need for protection of properties

We recognise that much of our private security powers are derived from the UK Police Reform Act 2002 www.legislation.gov.uk.  It gives the police the power to run ‘community safety accreditation schemes’ in their respective localities for the purpose of fighting crime and disorder, public nuisance and anti-social behaviour.  These powers have brought us, (as a private security company) closer to the public police prompting partnership between the private security sector and the public police, (Wakefield, 2006:403).

This partnership requirement informs, not only how we operate but also how we train Door Supervisors and other security officers security guarding course.  With proper understanding of partnership, we hope to provide clients and their customers a complete package of manned and physical protection.  Our commercial security services are tailored to reduce business security costs while enhancing efficiency.

Security Training

As operational activities of most criminal gangs mimic activities of legitimate enterprises, our SIA security training resources are structured to equip our trained Door supervisors, security guards or trained risk managers in these.  Please go to the nightclub security booking page to book our Licensed Nightclub Security service.  Our security and training services are organised in a strategic sense and benefits from existing security measures in any location our SIA trained Nightclub security or Door supervisors are stationed.

We as private security operatives have our primary assignment on the premises of those who hire and pay us.  We discharge our duties by taking advantage of the presence of the public police in the locality and engaging with their efforts in fight against crime and disorder.

Our Crime Reduction and Risk Strategy

Once we arrive a location our SIA trained door supervisors, nightclub security, security guards or close protection officers will quickly identify:

  • Local Authority (Councils) in which the assignment is situated
  • The Local Police in the area in which the assignment is situated

For example, if we are engaged to provide nightclub security or SIA licensed Door Supervisors at McDonald’s restaurant in Brixton London or a nightclub in Brixton, we’ll immediately note that the assignment is within London Borough of Lambeth and that the nearest police station Brixton Police Station.  This information is then inbuilt within our assignment instructions, most of which are confidential instructions.

Key objectives of the strategy

  • Reduction of crime
  • Reduction of fear of crime
  • Public disorder
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Drug misuse
  • Vandalism

How we may implement our risk based strategy:

  • Physical presence to deter opportunistic crimes
  • Extra lighting in areas to improve natural surveillance (visibility)
  • Access control to certain areas
  • CCTV operations
  • Radio communication links between partnership organizations
  • Pub-watch and shop-watch initiatives

Our main functions and priorities are grouped under:

  • The protection of life
