From arson to theft, schools can be a target for a multitude of crimes. In fact, just 5 years ago, it was reported by the BBC that over 30,000 crimes against schools were logged by the police in that year alone. Today, with less officers on the streets and cut-backs to funding, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that schools need security services for education to help keep their premises safe and secure.
We work with many local organisations, from nursery schools to colleges, helping to protect their premises and safeguard their employees by providing a range of services including key holding and alarm response.
What is key holding?
Our key holding service is ideal for schools who feel uneasy about asking employees to take keys home. Keeping a set of keys safe and secure in our 24-hour key safes, we only release them under strictly monitored procedures. Whether it’s providing a lock and unlock service, or responding to an alarm, you can rest assured that access to your property is in safe and reliable hands.
What is alarm response?
Your employees have enough to do without being on call to respond to alarm activations. Not only does it disturb work/life balance, but it also puts your staff members at risk – especially if they need to leave the house late at night. With our alarm response service, we respond to activations on your behalf, carrying out a full inspection before resetting it and securing the premises. On call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, our professional Patrol & Response Officers respond in just 18 minutes on average.
What else do you offer?
On top of our key holding and alarm response services, we also offer mobile patrols. A visible deterrent to criminals, our randomly-timed internal and external foot patrols are a fraction of the price of static guards. In fact, on average, our security services cost just £9.60 per week. A small price to pay for the peace of mind they provide.
