Businesses and security companies in London (and the rest of the UK) who have licensed premises are compelled by law to use only SIA licensed guards for their security needs. SIA is short for the Security Industry Authority and is the only organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry in the UK. What this means is that every time you hire a security guard, they must be licensed and vetted to undertake jobs in the security industry. London Security Services is an SIA Licensed Partner [or works hand in hand with SIA Licensed Partners] who provides security guards that are currently qualified to work as security personnel at your place of business.
In a 2016 report by the UK Guardian [https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/feb/01/cost-of-uk-retail-soars-to-a-record-613m], the losses incurred by retail businesses as a result of theft hit an all-time high of £613 million. It is obvious that security is a concern for many businesses as huge losses have also been reported across other industries. Not only that, close protection is a necessity for certain high profile individuals and the only way to stay safe in this scenario is to hire security guards in London.
Why Security Services in London is a #1 Priority
Many small businesses in the UK are presented with the issue of thefts and other crimes occurring in their premises. Some outfits like retail stores, banks and shops are more of a target for petty thieves and criminals. The need for security guards in these types of businesses is of paramount importance. In hospitals, nightclubs, train stations and so on, security guards can help prevent crime while assisting customers and employees. If you are a business owner, you should evaluate the benefits of hiring an SIA vetted security guard by estimating the loss that could be incurred if you don’t!
The question you have to ask yourself is whether or not your business is secure. Using security guards in your London premises will offer a lot of benefits:
Peace of mind
The presence of a security guard at your premises can offer a sense of security and peace of mind to both your customers and employees. People who work in high-risk operations are less productive and harder to retain if they have to worry about their personal safety while at work.
With a security guard, your customers will also feel safe knowing that you are concerned about their security. It shows that you are ready to take steps to ensure that they are protected from crime while in your office. This may be especially important for companies that handle high-end merchandise or are located in high-crime areas.
Prevent and deter crime
By just having a security guard present, you can help deter criminals. Before a crime is typically carried out, criminals will typically scout the area and assess the risk involved. When they see a security guard present, they will think twice about targeting the business.
Skilled SIA guards are trained to look out for suspicious characters and behaviour. They can evaluate a situation and act accordingly to secure any breach. Even when you have a CCTV camera, a guard is much more effective as a visual deterrent than any electronic surveillance system. Basically, having a security guard present sends a message that you have a 0% tolerance for crime.
Security guards can also double as customer service ambassadors. A trained guard can man a front desk while also acting as a security personnel and managing access to your premises. If there is a lot of interaction with guards, London Security Services will provide you with guards that are trained in handling security and customer-facing duties.
All of our guards can help with basic tasks like directing people to find products or getting from one location to the next. Our guards will also be available as escorts for customers and employees who need assistance getting to their cars when it is dark. Hiring guards who offer personal services like this show your customers that you are customer-oriented.
Active response to crime
With a trained security guard, you can receive different levels of protection. When it comes to an active response to a crime, our guards are fully trained and know what is required of them during and after an incident. In some cases, they may only be in a position to take down the details of the incident and contact the police. On other occasions, they can detain a suspect if unarmed. Hiring a trained and licensed guard from LONDON SECURITY SERVICES will ensure that you get a contracted security personnel who will behave capably and sensibly when a crime occurs.
Monitor your security surveillance system
Not all contracted security personnel will spend all their time on active patrols of your business premises. Some of our security staff can monitor your video surveillance, check for contraband, verify credentials, or restrict access to certain areas.
