You can rely on ESP staff

Has the introduction of the compulsory licensing of individuals undertaking designated activities within the private security industry improved the quality of applicants?

SIA licensing covers manned guarding (including security guarding, door supervision, close protection, cash and valuables in transit, public space surveillance using CCTV), key holding and vehicle immobilising. Licensing ensures that private security operatives are ‘fit and proper’ persons who are properly trained and qualified to do their job.

At ESP we always start with the individual. How else can we deliver on our promises? It is essential that our staff know, understand and share our expectations of faultless contract delivery. We are not a staff agency with hundreds of names on our books: we recruit, train & manage security professionals that share our passion for customer service and in this we hope to achieve a stable, reliable and cost effective operation over the long term.

Manned guarding Making your peace of mind our business ESP provides professionally trained and fully licensed uniformed security officers to protect your retail, commercial or industrial premises.

We understand the importance of creating the right team to support you in your manned security guarding requirements. Every customer requirement is different, but we believe that there are two key elements underpinning a successful service:

  1. Carefully matching the right officers to your environment and service needs.
  2. Developing and maintaining open and effective channels of communication across the security team. We deliver consistently high levels of service by ensuring that ESP’s management is easily accessible to both our customers and our staff, and is an active part of the team that supports you.

We appreciate that no two clients' guarding requirements are exactly the same and that understanding the subtleties of your environment is central to providing a high quality service. We will meet with you, perform a full site survey and undertake a Risk Assessment. If you already have a written security strategy we will see how we might add value or, in consultation with your representative, we will build a security service to meet your needs.

Setting the correct service levels is important; achieving them in a consistent and managed way is vital. Our managers will identify and select the right calibre of SIA licensed security guards who best suit your manned guarding requirements.

Our security officers will often interact with the general public or visitors on your behalf, therefore we pay great attention to selecting the correct officers for your environment. It can often be the case that our security guards will be viewed as part of your team. We take this responsibility very seriously.

mobile patrol Immediate response Mobile security patrols are an effective method of preventing and deterring crime and vandalism as well as detecting other incidents such as fire or flooding. Depending upon your organisations security needs, mobile patrols may offer a more cost effective solution than static guarding. However, in our experience Mobile Patrols are often part of an integrated set of services that may include: Key Holding & Alarm Response CCTV Monitoring Lone Worker Monitoring

All our mobile security services are tracked real time. Any incidents that we may have dealt with on your behalf are reported and sent via email directly to you, giving GPS location, photo, signature and full report. We do not overload our mobile officers as we understand the detrimental effect it can have on a client's business if the officer on the ground is rushing to get off to the next assignment. We keep our mobile patrols within a 10 mile radius this enables us to deliver a very cost effective and rapidly deployed mobile guarding solution, tailored to support your operational needs.

We recruit, train & manage security professionals that share our passion for customer service
key holding Relax, we can handle even the most 
demanding situation ESP offers a comprehensive service to meet your outsourced key holding requirements. Whilst typically Key Holding is provided in unison with our alarm response service, it is possible for a customer to simply use ESP to hold keys until they are required. A verified call from an alarm receiving centre or from a client to our 24/7 security control will set in motion the pre-agreed instructions and escalation protocols. Our uniformed officers and liveried vehicle will deal with any situation in a professional manner, a full report with GPS location, photographic evidence, time and date stamped will be sent via email for your information. We will always respond within 20 minutes. Special security projects When you do not know where to turn Do you have a requirement that doesn’t fit neatly into a standard description? ESP has the experience, contacts and expertise to deal with almost any project, no matter how off the wall it may seem. We have set up and run overseas security operations, provided security and close protection for BBC Radio 1, swept corporate head offices for illicit listening devices, tested security systems, provided the security strategy and provision of service for the Olympic Coach Park, provided dog handlers for a Country Estate amongst many other operations. We will meet with you and discuss your objectives and find the best way to achieve them. The use of our security provision is not always the answer and we will not sell you a service we feel inappropriate. Having been in business for over 25 years, we have a network of associates that we are happy to refer you to if we are not able to provide the solution. We make no charge for this; goodwill is how we have built the lasting relationships that underpin everything we do. Call us for a confidential appraisal of your requirements.
You don't need eyes in the back of your head - we've got that covered.
