Static guarding is when a security officer is based on a site or property. These officers are highly trained, as they often work alone and must make quick, informed decisions in response to occurrences on site. The type of static guard provided depends on the requirements of the client. Some provide a visual presence, patrol in security uniforms and are on site 24 hours a day. Others work in reception areas, checking in visitors, answering phones and keeping a low-profile, while ensuring that the building remains safe and secure during office hours. Some clients will require more than one officer to be on site at all times.
When you choose a Shield static guard, you know you are protected by a licensed, fully vetted, highly-qualified security officer
Established in 1986, Shield Security Services can be trusted to provide qualified security personnel. All Shield’s security officers have been fully vetted and have been trained to a very high standard before they start work on a client’s site. We will not send you anyone that we would not trust to guard our own site and we take our time to learn about your business to send you the guard who is the best fit for you. Our comprehensive and superior service goes further than the highly-trained security officer or officers we provide for your site. Officers are required to make regular check calls to our state-of-the-art, 24-hour control centre. In the unlikely event a check call is missed, a well-rehearsed emergency procedure will be immediately actioned and a response vehicle sent to the client’s premises to investigate.
To ensure we continue to provide a high-quality service, supervisors, inspectors and managers will routinely and randomly visit each client’s site in order to review the security officers’ performances. This also gives us the opportunity to judge whether the security requirements of the site have changed, so we can recommend the best course of action to keep your premises secure in the future. If you want a physical security presence on your site, but you’re not sure you need a guard based at your premises, visit our mobile security patrols page – it is a cost-effective solution for businesses and individuals.
