What is manned guarding?
Manned guarding has three main elements. It is either guarding:
- against unauthorised entry to a building or premises
- against the destruction of or damage to a building or premises, or
- a person from assault or injury.
Additionally, security officers with the appropriate CCTV licence can:
- monitor or track the activities of a specific member of the public in a public or private place
- focus on someone's activities either by controlling or directing cameras at them
- identify someone, and
- protect the premises from disorder and/or protect someone from violence or assault.
By choosing our manned guards, as well as installing security systems such as CCTV, you'll receive an integrated security service for your entire premises. Guards can patrol your business and monitor your CCTV cameras, linked up to our monitoring centre, giving you 24-hour protection and providing a more cost-efficient security service.
