Secure Empty Property can offer a complete range of options for manned security. These include :-

  • Mobile patrols – a flexible number each or on agreed days only. Random times or at specific times. Hours of darkness only or 24-hours.
  • Lock/un-lock service – to open car-parks or facilities each day taking responsibility for keyholding

  • Caretakers – Live-in staff who can provide a physical presence as well as helping visitors / deliveries and reporting issues at the property.

No – Secure Empty Property can flexibly commence, pause and terminate mobile and static guarding services at each site. Live-in Gurkhas do require a minimum period as they occupy the site however, contracts can be terminated quickly if vacant possession of the property is required.

Each service is complementary and frequently we will have a combination of all security services on larger sites. This provides a coherent and unified security service to protect the property. Where larger sites sometimes require two or more guards, costs can be significantly reduced by engaging only one guard supported by intruder alarms and CCTV to provide complete site protection 24-hours.
