In addition, genuine savings can be achieved through reduced insurance premiums when additional physical security is added to a business’s protection capabilities.
Our fully marked patrol vehicles are professionally designed to provide a high visibility profile that not only compliments our client’s businesses but acts as a deterrent when in and around those premises. We also provide and professionally install, free of charge printed (small, medium or large) core flute signage to deter would be offenders and highlight our commitment in protecting your business.
To achieve those goals, our personnel are responsive, flexible and attentive to their duties and are supported by our 24-hour Mobile Duty Managers.

Compliment Self-Managed CCTV alerting systems.
With the increased accessibility to emerging technologies, small business is slowly replacing or substituting traditional alarm monitoring and CCTV installation services with their own self-managed (via mobile and/or desktop devices etc.) CCTV systems. These systems typically rely upon the subscriber (receiving the emails) actually being awake to receive the email in order to determine a potential security breach. The ultimate question is, when a potential threat exists, who do you send in to potentially confront an intruder - an untrained staff member, yourself or a trained professional?
