Shield Security Services – News Update

Paul Tennent – Managing Director

The world has been going through unprecedented times, facing a health crisis not seen for many generations. At Shield, we continue to manage the uncertainty that Covid-19 is causing across society and want to assure you that we are working to ensure we keep our staff safe while continuing to deliver the high quality, personal service you are used to.

The government’s recent recognition of security officers as key workers just shows what value they provide to the community in keeping the public safe and secure.  As we exit lockdown and have to navigate public spaces again, they will play a crucial role in supporting public confidence.

I want to say a big thankyou to all our team for their tireless work, especially over the past 3 months providing physical security at factories, offices and premises helping create a safe and secure environment critical to protecting people, property and their assets.

Following the latest advice from the UK Government, we have put in these additional measures to ensure that our business can continue to operate efficiently.

  • To ensure the safety of our team, our operations teams are working split shifts, so that no more than two members of staff are in the office at the same time.
  • All our security officers have been provided with additional PPE including hand sanitisers, wipes, gloves and masks.
  • Our daily vehicle check now include deep cleaning and sanitising.
  • Our management and office staff have been set up to remotely from work from home.

Looking forward, we will be facing new challenges from a potential economic crisis through to additional security threats.  Our continued investment in systems and procedures allows us to  combine our standard service offering with an increased focus on technology.

Finally, we wish to take this opportunity to thank the tireless work from doctors, nurses, carers, emergency services, pharmacists and cleaners during the pandemic.
