Static Security Guard Services
Static security guards are uniformed security personnel that remain on-site at one site for an agreed period of time, often during evenings but can include day times. They are used by Armour Security Guarding to protect our client’s property. Security signs can also be installed around the site to act as a deterrent.

The static security guards are often located within a client’s control room that will also house a CCTV system, and their duties include regular security checks around the site. These checks are recorded providing evidence that security checks have occurred.

As well as security checks, the static security guard can be used to open and close property at the start and end of the working day, taking responsibility for ensuring the property is secure.

Static security guards can be used at any site including business parks, construction sites, schools and retail developments.

If you’re looking to protect your people, products, business or have a construction/development site that needs security systems please call us to see how we can help.

Mobile Patrol Services
Mobile Patrols are uniformed security guards that patrol a number of sites during an agreed period. They will have use of a Armour Security Guarding vehicle which is branded with the company name as a deterrent.

The mobile security guards will undertake regular, but varied, checks around the sites which are recorded providing evidence that security checks have occurred. Security signs are installed around the site to act as a deterrent.

Guard Dog Services
Guard dogs can act as an additional deterrent to a static security guard or mobile patrol. Signs are displayed around the client’s site advising that a guard dog is present.

All dog handlers and guard dog work is undertaken within the provisions of the Guard Dog Act 1975. At Armour Security Guarding we ensure that our trained guard dog handlers keep the guard dogs under their control at all times. Our guard dogs are trained to show controlled aggression against anyone who confronts their handler.

The security guards and guard dogs will undertake regular, but varied, checks around the sites which are recorded providing evidence that security checks have occurred.

Installation & Monitoring of CCTV

CCTV security systems can play an important role in fighting crime and can act as a valuable ‘respond and record’ system. Armour Security Guarding believe CCTV systems are more effective than intruder alarms and we are working with many clients helping them replace their old systems with CCTV security systems.

Armour Security Guarding has its own CCTV engineers that design and install a CCTV system that suits your needs. There are a number of security solutions to suit your budget such as:

24 Hour Live Video Surveillance:
(need information on this service)

Remote Alert CCTV Video Monitoring:
A CCTV system is set up to transmit activations to the Armour Security Guarding control room. When activated the system delivers instant video surveillance enabling our control room security guards to monitor the activation and take action. This is a cost effective security solution.

24 Hour Remote Monitoring Combined Service:
This service combines the Static Security Guards with our remote CCTV monitoring service assigning additional duties to the guards to monitor CCTV.

Key Holding / Emergency Alarm Response
Armour Security Guarding provides businesses and homes with a key holding service which means we retain ‘keys’ to your premises that are deposited in our secure key holding facility. Keys are kept sealed and each seal is uniquely numbered and recorded in our Log Book.

Our security key holders are in constant contact with our Control Centre and can request immediate response if intruders are detected or a situation turns hostile. Our key holders can reset alarm systems, arrange emergency building repairs and ensure that the premises are secure before they leave.

Our Emergency Alarm Response service means our trained Security officers will attend your premises on your behalf and deal with the situation that caused the alarm activation. A comprehensive report is provided to you the following morning outlining the incident and the action taken by our response officers.

The Armour Security Guarding Control Centre operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our vehicles are fitted with satellite tracking enabling us to despatch the closest available emergency alarm response team. Our security guards are uniformed and carry identity cards making them easily identifiable. They remain in constant contact with our Control Centre.

Retail Security Guards & Store Detectives
Armour Security Guarding recognises that stock is valuable to retail businesses. We can provide a site inspection identifying health & safety and security risks in your store.

We can provide trained retail security guards and store detectives to help patrol and monitor security of retail outlets acting as a deterrent and providing security for shoppers. Our retail security guards can either be dressed in Armour Security Guarding uniform or our client’s own security uniform.

Our Store Detectives can play a role in combating shop-lifting. Dressed as a typical customer, the Store Detective patrols the store monitoring customer activity and identifying shoplifters.

Both our Retail Security Guards and Store Detectives carry radios and mobile phones, and report to the Control Centre regularly.
