Static Security


The role of the security team within this sector is to protect your staff and to act as a visual deterrent; this is achieved by reducing the belief of a criminal that they can get away with committing a crime, due to the likelihood of arrest.

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.

Static Security Patrols

The main reasons for security patrols are:

  • To prevent fire, flood and damage to your property.
  • To prevent waste of your company’s resources.
  • To prevent accidents.
  • To detect and prevent offences.

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.

Reducing your environmental impact

As environmental issues are becoming more important due to the cost of wasted energy, our security operatives can check for, and switch off unnecessary lighting, saving you money by reducing energy bills. This will also help to reduce your company’s carbon footprint.

Property Guarding 

Static security guards ensure your staff are obeying the rules and regulations laid down by your company. This can be anything from enforcing the no smoking policy, to safeguarding the physical and intellectual property of your organisation.

All our Static Guarding operatives are in communication with not only the control centre, but with their colleagues. If contact is lost between any of our guards, an immediate investigation is begun to ascertain the cause.

Peace of Mind

These security patrols provide an added level of vigilance and intelligence gathering. The effective execution of this strategy will often prevent an incident occurring in the first place.

There are also numerous added value initiatives that Impact Services recommend within this sector
