DSS supply fully vetted and fully trained officers providing Static Guarding, all of whom are SIA licensed and screened to exacting British Standards. They can be uniformed or in plain clothes and can be utilised as commercial officers to protect staff, stock and premises or front of house to assist your customers or staff.

We understand that Security personnel are often the first point of contact for visitors to your site, it is with this in mind that we specially select and provide only officers of the highest standards to give your visitors the best first impression possible.  Despite the title of Static Guarding, our guards are far from stationary. A vital part of their duties is to conduct regular and thorough security patrols. One of the popular misconceptions for the public is that our security officers patrol to catch intruders. In reality, due to the security measures we have already put in place, intrusions are rare.

Security Patrols:

  • To prevent fire, flood and damage to your property.
  • To prevent waste of your company’s resources.
  • Dealing with incidents and emergencies in a professional manner.
  • To detect and prevent offences.
  • Checking of doors and windows to make sure that they are safe and secure.
  • Maintaining constant communication with central control and duty supervisors.

These security patrols vary both in time and route, in order to ensure the element of surprise should an incident occur. If an incident does occur, it is always logged in the appropriate incident book. This may become important evidence if the police need to be called.  We are extremely reliable and adaptable so our officers can be utilised in any situation at any time.

You can hire us for your statics venues such as office Buildings, business Parks, industrial estates, corporate holdings, warehouses, retail Outlets, construction Sites, Schools, Colleges and Universities. As our approach is very flexible you may wish to use us as a back-up facility for when your alarms fail or existing in-house staff are on holiday, or off sick.

  • Construction sites
  • Industrial premises & warehouses
