Anyone else sick of putting the news on lately and seeing crime, death and Brexit everywhere?!? ... Yep, same here. It seems that nearly everyday i watch the news on TV, read the Express & Star or look through online news it's yet another knife crime in Wolverhampton or stolen cars in Birmingham.
Security is an important - yet often, overlooked aspect of having a business. It is an area that many people feel can be cut back on or totally scrapped in order to save on money. We understand that. In the struggle of businesses in this uncertain time it's natural for cost cutting to be going on where ever possible.
This time of year is so joyful. Catching up with old friends and distant relations. Finding those wonderfully thoughtful gifts for your loved ones. Celebrating Christmas with your family traditions.

As a long established security firm we always find this is our busiest time of the year. Sadly rises in theft go hand in hand with Christmas time. The West Midlands was reported to have the second highest burglary rate in the country over the 2017 festive period.
For anyone who own a premises - whether it be commercial or residential, security is always important. Whilst alarm systems and CCTV monitoring go a long way to help keep your premises secure, there are other things you can do to minimise risks.With crime appearing to be ever rising and more and more businesses being targeted by thieves is it time to review your security?
When it comes to security - whatever type you are looking for, manned guarding, mobile security, keyholding & alarm response, open/locks or vacant unit checks it is vital you use a trusted, experienced and competent company. With all industries these days you come across the 'cowboy' companies, just looking to make a quick buck and not carry out a proper service. This is NOT something anyone wants when it comes to something as important and sensitive as security.
