In the UK today there are an estimated 4.25 million CCTV cameras installed up and down the country. Combine this with the fact that 24% of the security industry’s activities are attributed to security guarding alone and you get a strong idea of the importance this particular service provides our cities and the demand for its many benefits across the UK. Whether you’re aware of it or not, safety measures are an everyday part of our lives. They’re in the streets we walk, the buildings we enter and shops we browse – and they’re there for a damn good reason.
Today, the role of security is evolving as the role of crime becomes more sophisticated and dangerous each year. Take retail security for example, in the last year alone warehouse fraud increased almost 30% while criminal damage rose by 24.6% costing business owners £81m. Looking at the construction industry, you really get an insight into how harmful a lack of security can be as a recent report revealed that 1 in 5 construction sites in the UK are vandalised each and every week because they are viewed as a soft target.
Every day our security guards take on roles designed to protect companies, watch over campuses and prevent trespassers causing damage to your business. When it comes to security guarding in a city like Bristol, the objectives are simple and straight forward. We aim to ensure public safety is never compromised, we safeguard your property or environment and we take responsibility for areas you might not be equipped to take on yourselves. How, you ask? Offering static officers, deploying teams of mobile guards trained to carry out mobile patrols across large sites and giving you guards capable of managing gatehouse duties and access points, there’s not much our team of security guards in Bristol can’t do.
Understanding the vibrant environment this coastal city offers, we are all too familiar with the unfortunate threats that are too often associated with highly populated areas. Our motto is: where there are people, there’s the chance of crime. No the most uplifting of sayings, but certainly a realistic one from our years of experience.

Allowing Churchill to take care of all your Bristol security guard services is the first step to take when it comes to unleashing the potential your business has.
