The site is now fully mobile responsive and has been ranked as mobile friendly by Google. The site is a full CMS site and we have full control in house of its content and will soon be adding a login for our clients to be able to view their data, assignment instructions, service agreements, incident reports etc - we are the only company locally that have this functionality for their clients as this system has been custom developed for us. We would like to thank Rainbow Digital Media for their help with developing the framework. 

SIA ACS

26th May 2015

We are delighted to now be live on the SIA ACS register, there are less than 800 Security Industry Authority Approved Contractors and we are now one of them, on top of this we have been awarded two 'best practices' one for our use of technology and one for our staff welfare. Becoming ACS is confirmation that we are working either to or beyond British Standards and have met the required standards set by the SIA.

We hope this will bring in an increase of work both direct with clients but also as a service provider to other security companies across the country.

As of the 1st May 2015 we are the only Worcestershire based company accredited in the three disciplines of Keyholding, Security Guarding and Door Supervision. We are also the only company in Worcestershire accredited in Door Supervision.
