  • Any contract to provide site security officers will naturally include regular visits by Inspectors, during both day and night, with periodic ‘spot’ checks by senior management.  Such visits will be utilized for the dual role of roving motorized patrols in the site area and immediate surrounds, which will serve as an additional deterrent to would be criminals and facilitate a ‘zero delay’ response to any incident if any such need arises.

Where do we go from here?

  • All we need is to be awarded the opportunity, to back up our claims!

Putting our money where our mouth is!
