Security Servies

Renewable Security

Such is the demand for our renewable security services that we opened our own RSD team (Renewable Security Division) that focuses solely in securing the needs of our many renewable customers. Be it security, traffic management, CCTV installation, remote monitoring or alarm callouts our Renewable Security Division is the team that you need on your site. We currently have more than 20 PV solar farms ranging from 5MW to 40MW in our solar portfolio across the UK and Eastern Europe. We also provide security for other renewable sites, such as, wind farms, tidal energy farms, biomass plants, hydroelectric damns and geothermal plants.

Construction Site Security

Your business cannot afford to dismiss Security as an after thought; theft and vandalism is on the increase. Our uniformed security officers can provide the visible security you need to deter crime. GuardWatch are available for; redevelopment sites, building demolition sites, civil engineering, motorway/road construction, electricity, overhead lines, refurbishing, underground cables, gas pipelines and rail networks.

Close Protection

Uniformed, suited or unseen, our specially trained Close Protection Specialists provide cover at home and on the move. Shadowing a special visitor for a shopping spree or dealing with a press call and the paparazzi, we will plan routes, prepare venues and ensure the day runs smoothly so celebrity feathers do not get ruffled in the slightest. From sports stars and Royalty to senior executives who’d prefer to be rich but not famous, our Security Agents and Professional Drivers keep trouble at bay.

Maritime Security

Oil rigs, ferry and freight companies, shipping agencies and port authorities around Britain call on GuardWatch Security to meet their stringent standards. Working with Special Branch and the Border & Immigration Agency within the framework set by the regulatory body (TRANSEC), our drills and skills touch on all aspects of maritime traffic in and out of our shores. X-ray screening, searches, sniffer dogs preventing smuggling – it’s all in a day’s work for GuardWatch’s Award Winning Security Management team.

security solutions

Office Security

When your doors are manned with our security guards, it’s important we project the right image – one that matches your own company’s values. Meeting and greeting staff every morning, and as the first point of contact for visiting executives and VIPs, our flexible security officers and their teams will take care of offices, commercial properties and council buildings, patrolling the premises, controlling goods in and out, searching individuals and vehicles, monitoring CCTV cameras and more.

Retail Security

Many of our security officers have a background working in customer-facing roles. Where we deal with the public at large – busy Mums, Dads and their families – we know how important taking a softly, softly approach can be. Our uniformed officers are skilled at dealing with large crowds, letting thousands in during the sales or evacuating entire shopping malls in an emergency. We also deploy covert store detectives, oversee control room operations, manage car parks and provide first aid.

Logistics

As well as providing static guards, we also move with you. Whether transporting freight by road and rail, our security solutions can provide the support and infrastructure you need to trace, track and trail valuable goods. Our security consultants can analyse your plans, carrying out a comprehensive safety and security audit. We will put in place plant and personnel to help you monitor your assets every step of the way, using sophisticated electronics.

Warehouse Security

Agile and attentive, our specially trained security guards don’t flinch when it comes to working in hostile environments. Quick to respond – many come from the ranks of the Armed Forces – they will work in tandem with CCTV surveillance cameras to scour every corner of your warehouses and distribution centres:
• They will spot weaknesses in your perimeter fences
• Challenge suspicious traffic in and out of your gates
• Operate remote gate monitoring systems
• Our Mobile Managers even take care of your health & safety issues

Visitor Attractions Security

Permanent or temporary, theme parks and exhibitions call for a special mix of security solutions, from the turnstiles to the souvenir shop. Mitigating the risks while making priceless exhibits accessible to the public calls for a delicate balance. Preventing theft or acts of vandalism often sees our guards working in places that were not designed to welcome large numbers of visitors such as stately homes. Indoors and outdoors, time and again, our unobtrusive security professionals prove they are just the ticket.

Event Security

An AGM, a private function at your corporate HQ – there are many events that call for additional security staff. Because our flexible workforce is ready-vetted and trained, we can respond at short notice, be it for an exclusive launch at London Fashion Week or a rock band playing to a record crowd. GuardWatch are adept at working with the Police at all sorts of venues and events, providing:
• Manned Guarding services
• Ushers
• CCTV cover
• Access control
• Car park management
• Covert surveillance and more

Hospitals and Schools

At GuardWatch, we place particular emphasis on vetting our security officers, and on training them for everything a specialised environment can throw at them. With hospitals free to make their own security arrangements and more schools now enjoying the freedom and autonomy to source theirs, too, we can tailor a solution to meet their needs. GuardWatch Security offers outstanding value for money as well as CRB-checked personnel with site-specific security training.
