Security Guards for Commercial Properties

A security company can manage the assignment of security guards as and when your business needs them. Hiring security guards as a permanent presence, or for specific functions and duties, are both options available to your business.

Some companies have security guards permanently based in reception, managing the check-in process and monitoring the CCTV cameras to keep the people who are on-site safe.

Others might need security guards for events and functions to help with checking guests bags or to monitor the guest behaviour and deter unwanted guests.

Another option is to choose a remote service such as alarm monitoring, key holding, and CCTV monitoring.

If your premises is with other businesses, why not speak to them about a shared security person, meaning costs are shared between you.
