Servoca’s Security division offers a range of Security Services including Security Guarding, Key Holding and Alarm Response, Mobile Patrol /Response, Event Security, Security Training, Corporate Investigations/Risk analysis.

Security Guarding

The service is provided by uniformed officers who have been trained to the highest standard and vetted to British Standard: BS7858. Our frontline staff are supported by a team of experienced responsive Managers. The service is provided across all business sectors including Retail, Shopping Centres, Commercial, Transport and Distribution. This service is provided on either a long term contracted basis or can be supplied on a temporary basis to meet short term requirements including cover for holiday and sickness.

Key Holding and Alarm Response

This service is provided by professionally trained response officers in GPS tracked vehicles.

Today due to the financial constraints on Police Forces it is not always possible to have an immediate response to alarm activations and our service provides that need.  By using the service of a professional security company you alleviate the risks to your employees attending an alarm activation which may be caused by armed intruders. Many insurance companies give a discount to companies utilising the services of a security company.

Mobile Patrol/Response Team

Due to fiscal constraints on The Police, Retailers and Businesses the need for a mobile response service has become essential for the protection of assets and frontline personnel. Our service is provided by specifically trained response officers who specialise in dealing with violence and anti-social behaviour. They are equipped to deal with any potential confrontational issue that may arise.

The Team specialises in youth disorder or annoyance, violent incidents or threats against frontline staff and prolific offenders and shoplifters. The Team will liaise with Police and local officials to facilitate and resolve any security related issues but ultimately protect frontline staff and businesses. This is particularly relevant to retailers who do not have the resources to employ a full time security officer.

Event Support

This service is provided to any event requiring event stewards to comply with current legislation. Duties will include control of entry and egress, bag searching, car park management. This is necessary for festivals, sporting events and corporate hospitality.

Security Training

Our Training Department provides full training for all the requirements necessary to comply with security legislation. In addition to security we can provide Health and Safety training for all types of businesses. Many courses are bespoke for specific customer requirements particularly relevant is Security Awareness Training for all staff members.
