Guarding Services

UNIFORMED GUARDS - Providing long term guarding solutions or emergency/holiday cover, our security personnel are licensed by the Security Industry Authority, screened to BS7858 and are fully trained, CRB checked and fidelity bonded.

Whether you require highly visible guards to act as a deterrent, control access or work covertly as store operatives, you can be assured that we only supply top quality personnel.

RECEPTION SECURITY - Front-of-house staff are the most visible security presence in any business and it is very important that the Security Officers match the company’s image. It is also vital to achieve the balance of appearing both welcoming and secure.

Sentry Security can fulfil both of these requirements by supplying a smartly dressed and well-spoken Security Officer to look after front-of-house security. These Specialist Officers perform a dual function as a distinct security presence and a business support role by answering telephones, signing-in guests and maintaining control of access to the building, all from your reception area.

Guarding services provision complies with the BS7499 code of practice.


Keyholding & Response


Keyholders should be able to attend alarm calls within 20 minutes of notification. If the keyholder is a member of your own staff, Can they make it in time? Are they always available? Will they have to travel from outside the area? What happens if it’s a genuine alarm? Will they be going alone?

Sentry’s dedicated and highly trained response officers can attend any out-of-hours problems including intruder and fire alarms or to allow access to authorised personnel or contractors. Our Officers are licensed by the Security Industry Authority, and are fully trained, CRB checked and fidelity bonded.


Our Rapid Response vehicles ensure attendance within the 20 minute requirement. Trained personnel, skilled at coordinating the involvement of police, engineers and repair contractors can attend to ALL alarm calls, confirmed or not. You can rest assured that whatever police cover you have Sentry Security will always attend.

Alternatively, we can meet your own keyholder at your premises to ensure he/she is not alone and at risk. This service is compliant with BS7984.

Need a security presence without the need to have an officer at your premises all night?

Our mobile patrol service is an extremely cost effective way of maintaining a visible deterrent. External/Internal security checks are carried out at random times throughout the night and over weekends and all patrols are electronically recorded.

Our Open Up and Lock Up service ensures your premises are opened up at the start of the day, or secured when staff leave to go home. Our mobile officers will arrive shortly before the end of the working day and check that the last member of staff has left the building. We will then patrol and check the entire building to make sure all the doors and windows are closed and that all non-essential equipment is turned off, then set the alarm, lock up and leave. The mobile officer returns next morning, unlocks the building and allows staff to enter. The Open/Lock Up service is ideal for you if you operate a business with multiple locations or if you work long and unsociable hours, because it takes away the time-consuming task of opening and locking up all your properties and ensures your safety.

Schools are extremely vulnerable, due to their location, to attacks by vandals, thieves and arsonists. Even minor damage can cause disruption and distress to school children. Sadly it is often older pupils that cause the damage.

Sentry Schoolwatch is a bespoke service which provides security patrols and/or keyholding and alarm response.

Patrols can be provided on an ongoing basis, or just during school holidays.

The Health & Safety Executive define lone workers as "those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision".

Companies have a corporate responsibility to monitor the welfare and safety of employees working alone. The threat may not always be from working with the public. Accidents (trips or machinery related injuries) or sudden illness (eg heart attack) do happen and an appropriate response could mean the difference between life and death.

Examples of lone workers:

* One person working in a shop or petrol station * District nurses * Cleaners * Security Officers * Caretakers * Keyholders * Estate Agents * Drivers * Engineers * Electricians * Sales reps * Social workers* Self employed * Office personnel working late *

Sentry Security has several solutions to this problem. From lone worker monitoring to fall alarms, panic alarms and security escort services. Regardless of location or numbers of people, we can help you meet your legal responsibilities.
