If you’re looking into corporate security, you obviously take your business seriously. And so should your security team. It’s in your best interests to make the right decisions when it comes to what security services to employ, to ensure your business is best protected.
Here’s an overview of what corporate security is, and what services are on offer to give you complete peace of mind.
Corporate security is the term used to identify security provisions within the business sector, be it employee protection, the security of physical property, or intellectual assets.
At Hallmark Security, we specialise in all aspects of corporate security across the North West, with some services available Nationwide. Most businesses need a flexible approach to their security service, so it can adapt to changes and growth. At Hallmark, we take the time to get to know our clients so we can provide the best possible service at all times.
When people think of a security team, they usually think of security guards and guard dogs. While these are essential services, there’s also a more personal side to corporate security requiring a greater level of emotional intelligence, trust and interpersonal skills.
As an overview, your corporate security team should provide you with:
At Hallmark Security, we make these assurances through a raft of personalised services that can be adapted to suit your exacting needs. Once you make contact with our team, we’ll have an in-depth meeting to discuss your requirements, and demonstrate how we can best help you.
The services we offer are:
The alarm you install is only as good as the response it triggers. With our 24-hour alarm response service, we can attend an alarm call within minutes to secure a site. We respond to any alarm, be it an intruder alarm, smoke alarm, or CO2 monitor. We only call the emergency services if a disturbance is confirmed on site, and we’ll stay until the site is secured, offering a complete response service.
Our key-holding service means if your alarm is triggered in the middle of the night, it won’t be you that has to deal with it. We will go through a thorough site visit with you to discuss entry and exit points, and keep your keys in our secure facility ready for our quick response. Full reports are issued each time a key is used on your behalf, to provide you with complete peace of mind.
These services provide a physical presence at your premises, which is often the best form of deterrent. By either manning particular locations across your site or conducting random mobile patrols, our highly trained staff can detect suspicious behaviours before crimes are committed.
Canine services are often the most off-putting to potential threats, as the dogs’ sense of smell and hearing can pick up anomalies long before humans. The uncertainty of how a guard dog will react to an intruder can be the deterrent needed to stop a crime before it’s been carried out. We also provide specialist dog services, for drugs, arms and explosives detection.
Our team of highly trained covert operatives work across the UK, servicing businesses within the building trades with a range of commercial investigation options.
With many years’ experience, we offer a fully bespoke service using our security dog handlers, mobile locksmiths and house clearance team to help support bailiff and utilities agents in their roles.
Unfortunately, retail crime is on the rise. Whether your business is a large-scale shopping mall or a smaller independent store, our retail security team can help you. Being able to deal with unusual events such as evacuations or the provision of first aid alongside a professional security role, we help you to significantly reduce losses in this area.
We know how important it is for special deliveries to be made on time, so our same-day courier service offers a bespoke collection/drop-off service across the UK. With accurate GPS tracking on all our vehicles and a 24-hour service, you know your business is in safe hands.
While steps are being taken to improve the standard of security services across the country, there are still rogue traders who may not have the legal backing behind them to support the services they offer. Before hiring a security team, do your research and make sure they have the relevant licenses and insurances, so you know your business will be best protected in any circumstance.
Alongside protecting your business from potential threats, employing a security team often provides you with the cover your business needs to meet your health and safety, and insurance requirements. All our services run on a 24-hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year basis, meaning we’re never not working for you.
