Security service: The 5-point plan to comprehensive safety

security service

Keeping your premises safe by means of security service requires a multi-faceted approach. It’s not only about ensuring your valuables are safe, but it’s also about creating a safe space for people to be each day, without peering over their shoulders worrying. Nothing can destroy a business as fast as word on the street that visitors run the risk of attack.

FSG supplies security services that are completely customisable, ensuring we address your property’s weaknesses. We are passionate about safety, which is why we have this 5-point plan every business should utilise. This 5-point plan covers each of our 5 senses, representing eyes and ears on the ground.

Have a professional security service assess your property to locate its weak points

It’s vital to identify your weak points. The areas you notice may be lacking in security may only be the tip of the iceberg. Criminals have developed the ability to spot opportunity where the rest of us wouldn’t have guessed there’s a vague chance of breaching. A professional draws from experience, they have worked with many people who have experienced trespassers, burglaries, and other forms of crime. This has given them insight into the way criminals think and operate, where they see opportunity and how to deter incidences. Evaluation is very personal, it means we can actually address your relevant weak points. It is up to you to decide whether or not you wish to go ahead with the work, but identifying these key areas is a vital starting point.

Security service sense one: Eyes – CCTV

CCTV is like having eyes at the back of your head, like your teachers used to tell you at school, except that it’s the real deal. It’s not possible to keep an eye on everything all the time, which is why footage matters so much. CCTV is capable of wirelessly feeding footage to you from the filmed location to you, anywhere in the world, in real time. CCTV cameras deter criminal activity and provide valuable evidence, if necessary.

Security service sense two: Ears – Alarm

An alarm system not only alerts your ears, but it also alerts your neighbours’ ears and your armed response unit’s ears, too. An alarm system doesn’t prevent someone from breaking and entering, but it gives them a very narrow time limit to perform their criminal activities. Many arrests are made by security service companies who react fast. According to statistics, an alarm is a major deterrent to burglars who prefer an easy and quiet target.

Security service sense three: Touch – Access Control

Access Control is like having a security guard on site, 24/7. Only authorised persons are able to enter, and a record of all entries and their times is also kept. Touch is our tactile sense, it gives us a feel for our environment. Access control ensures only people you trust can enter and get a feel for your premises.

Security service sense four: Mouth – Guarding

Security service guard services represent the mouth and speech in our security metaphor. Effective guarding beats any automated system you have in place to protect your premises. Unwanted visitors are often able to disguise themselves as couriers or other business people to gain entry via an intercom. Security service guards with training will know how to evaluate each person entering a property and at which point to report suspicious activity. You can’t beat the actual eyes and ears of a human that’s present.
