If you want to protect your property or land, The Sheriffs Office Security service has all the options, with a full range of security services to suit every requirement.

Security from the property experts

If your land or commercial property could be a target for protestors, travellers or squatters, we can recommend preventative security measures to discourage even the most determined trespassers.

Whether you want the reassurance of a fully licensed security officer patrolling 24 hours a day; or the equipment to keep your land or property safe, we have it covered.

We provide a full security service, including:

  • Security personnel and dog teams
  • Physical guarding
  • Security screens, doors and fencing
  • CCTV equipment and monitoring (permanent and temporary)
  • Alarm systems, monitoring and response
  • Vacant property services and inspections
  • Concrete barriers

Security personnel

All our security personnel, whether for personal guarding or site security, are all fully DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service, formerly CRB) checked and licenced by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) and the majority are ex-military. All our dog team handlers are also DBS checked and SIA licenced.

We provide security guards at all levels, for a wide range of tasks. We are flexible on time scales, from short term requirements to ongoing contracts, with the ability to increase or reduce the size of the team should your needs change.

Security screens, doors and fencing

We supply and fit a wide range of security measures, all manufactured to the highest standards, including the insurance company and LPS 1175 standard approved Toreadoor keyless temporary security door, the only vacant property security door approved by the Police. When we inspect your property – occupied or vacant – we will produce a written report on what security measures should be installed.

Alarms and CCTV

As you would expect, we supply and install high quality alarm systems and CCTV, all with the option of remote monitoring. This can include sending out security guards to check the premises if an alarm goes off. If your requirement is short-term, we can supply CCTV on a temporary hire basis, so you don’t need to make any investment.

Vacant property services

Finally, we offer a full vacant property service, with regular checks and inspections, to a schedule agreed with you. As well as incorporating guards, alarms, boarding and security screens, we will also clear the property and prepare it for redevelopment.

And if you already have trespassers

We are authorised High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEO) and conduct a large number of evictions on behalf of landlords, commercial agents and solicitors.

Our highly skilled team has a wealth of experience in evicting squatters from:

  • Smaller commercial properties, including pubs and retail premises
  • Large office blocks
  • Public spaces, such as Parliament Square
  • Inaccessible sites, such as those underground or only reachable by water or from above
  • Compulsory purchase orders - for redevelopments, motorways, train routes etc

No matter how small or large the scale of the occupation, we can help. Call us today on 0333 001 5100 to find out more.
