Corporate Security Guarding: An Overview

In a modern-day society where crime is ever on the increase and Police resources are stretched to the limits the Police Service in general cannot afford the time (in their limited budgets) to properly investigate crimes committed in and around the workplace or to regularly patrol the property of individuals or Companies. With the exception of very serious cases, internal crime within a Company is very often not regarded as a Police matter and is left with the Company’s management to sort out and rectify.

As Management is expected to be responsible for securing and protecting its own premises this responsibility could be delegated to the Security Company/Officer in many areas which could save the Company thousands £ in both the short and long term.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of scenarios where the deployment of Security Officers could alleviate and prevent crime occurring within the workplace.

Serious internal pilferage cannot only eat away a Company’s profits by making it less competitive in the market place; it could also cause late deliveries and loss of orders.

A serious fire, whether started deliberately or by accident could completely finish a Company.

Acts of vandalism can also have a devastating effect on business.

In an ever-competitive world industrial espionage is a means open to for  unscrupulous competitors to gain insight into a Company’s affairs.

Security Officers can therefore assist Client Management in both the prevention of crime and the detection of offenders committing those crimes.
