SIA Approved Contractor

The Security Industry Authority (SIA) Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) provides a framework for businesses in the private security industry to improve their standards. Every year since 2006, we have proudly scored in the highest percentile of SIA ACS assessed companies – only 25% of all accredited security suppliers achieve this level; making us one of the UK’s leading ACS approved security companies. We are on the SIA Register of Approved Contractors, which lists all of the organisations that have met the requirements for the ACS. These organisations have distinguished themselves as being amongst the best providers of private security services in the UK.

Trained and vetted security operatives

When you choose Shield Security Services to provide for your security needs, you can relax safe in the knowledge that all our staff are fully vetted. This is in accordance with the requirements of BS 7858:2019, Code of practice – Screening of individuals working in a secure environment.

Staff training

All our staff are trained to the highest standards. We don’t just provide a visual presence on site, but train pro-active staff to spot potential problems before they occur and react appropriately to prevent escalation.

Control room

Our control room is fitted with the latest technology to ensure clients receive the best service. This room forms the hub of all security activities we carry out and is open 24hrs a day, 365 days a year.


All our vehicles are fitted with trackers so we know where they are at any point in time. This enables our controllers to send the nearest response to an incident.
