What does this companies do?
Most people who have been the victims of criminal activity or anything which has alienated them from their constitutional right, will not hesitate to visit their nearest law enforcement offices to lodge a formal complaint, which will then be investigated because mostly law enforcement is a reactionary force, while British security companies is primarily known as a preventive force. People are more than welcome to lodge a complaint with British security companies in their area and those security people will always be quick to act upon those complaints especially if it’s in the area for which they are responsible as far as security is concerned. However security officers is considered to be most effective when they can prevent criminal activities from taking place and this is achieved through their visible security presence.
How is this accomplished?
British security companies should be constantly on the move and this is why most security companies will use clocking points, which forces security personnel to do a certain number of patrols during an eight hour or 12 hour shift. Those clocking points is placed throughout the area of responsibility in order to ensure a complete coverage of the entire area and in most cases this is a very affective but there is a downside to a rigid routine and that is that criminals will simply wait for the security guard to pass before they make their move. This is why it will be better for British security companies to use two security guards simultaneously and to have each of them start from a different point, since this will ensure a more effective coverage of the premises.
What businesses should know?
Many things have changed in the security industry over the last decade or two and this is why it is no longer possible to use the first unemployed person who is encountered and then use that person as a security guard. British security companies is only allowed to employee people who have received basic security training and who have been registered with the SIA. Those British security companies themselves are required by law to be registered with the SIA, who is the governing body for the entire security industry in this country. Many companies who have used security guards which has not been trained have encountered severe problems, especially when those security guards made themselves guilty of things which is contradicting UK legislation.
