What services does a security company provide? | Taur Security

If you are like me, then it can often get confusing finding and choosing the right product.

Security is no different!

Security companies seem to offer an ever-increasing range of services and for many, choosing the most appropriate security service can sometimes be a tricky decision to make.

Professional security services can range from the typical security guard on the doors of your local nightclub, a CCTV camera in the high street monitored by a security officer, to a highly trained K9 unit patrolling the perimeter of a commercial warehouse.

To help give you the information you need to confidently choose the most appropriate security service for your requirements, here we have detailed 3 services typically offered by security companies and what each service often includes.

We hope you enjoy this post! To view last month’s blog post, titled ‘Does my pub need security?’, visit https://www.taursecurity.co.uk/news/

Security Guards

Security Guards are arguably the most widely known service that security companies offer.

A security guard or ‘bouncer’ on the doors of your local night club maybe the first thought that comes to mind when talking about security services. And you would be right as this is often the bread and butter of many security companies.

A Security Guard is generally employed in a commercial setting and would be responsible for the safety of those at a specific venue or location. Their duties would typically include monitoring those entering the premises and ensuring that rules and laws are being followed.

There are also more complex Security Guarding services such as close protection for celebrities and public figures. 

All Security Guards are required to hold valid SIA Licences which show that they are vetted, trained and competent to effectively carry out their duties. Please do check this when looking to employ a Security Guard.

Key strengths of a Security Guard is that they can man critical positions and act as a visual deterrent. They can check for any unnatural activity within their working environment and respond accordingly.

CCTV Monitoring

CCTV Monitoring is a popular option for many and is often used in both commercial and residential settings.

CCTV (closed-circuit television) also referred to as video surveillance, is a TV system in which signals are monitored, primarily for surveillance and security purposes.

Cameras would be installed at critical points such as at the entrances of office buildings or at the front of a residential property with the live feed monitored by a security officer who would sound the alarm if any security issue occurred.

Key strengths of CCTV monitoring is that it is considered relatively cost-effective, low maintenance, acts as a visual deterrent and can provide recorded evidence which can be used in a court of law.

Our door supervisors hold valid SIA licences, attend regular CPD training, are polite and presentable, therefore giving you confidence in the service that we provide.

Our services can be tailored to meet your individual needs and requirements. This can include one guard being deployed during your busiest hours or multiple guards on duty throughout the week.

Mobile Patrols

Mobile Patrols is a security service used in both commercial and private settings.

This service often includes a marked security vehicle driven by security officers patrolling a certain area or property.

The security vehicle would make regular drive-by’s ensuring that the business premises, residential property or assets remain protected and do not become victims of criminal activity.

Key strengths of Mobile Patrols are that they provide a visual, proactive deterrent, with the security officers able to act as eyewitnesses helping to identify those offending and stepping in and responding to incidents when they occur. This service gives peace of mind particularly to those away on holiday or during out of work hours.
