Are you one of the thousands of people affected by intimidating behaviour and crime?

Known for its exceptional cheese and a good old hot pot, Lancashire is a great place to live, visit and do business. Home to Churchill’s humble beginnings all those years ago when we set up shop, if there’s one place we’re familiar with, it’s Lancashire.

But as with all things in life, there are two sides to every coin and today we are unearthing a few home truths about our home county.

Let’s play a game. Can you guess what the biggest challenge Lancashire is facing today when it comes to YOUR security?

Car theft? Drugs? Robbery?

What if we told you that your biggest risk in Lancashire today is a toxic combination of ALL these things rolled into one hideous beast? What is this epidemic? You guessed it; this beast is known as anti-social behaviour.

Fact: There were over 70,000 cases of anti-social behaviour in Lancashire last year.
Fact: There were over 20,000 cases of violent crime in Lancashire last year.
Fact: There were over 15,000 cases of criminal damage and arson in Lancashire last year.

Painting a disturbing picture of a beautiful county, it’s important to remember that whenever there’s a large population (1.5 million to be exact), trouble will likely follow. Yes, Lancashire has an unusually high level of anti-social behaviour (compared to Cumbria, Yorkshire and other surrounding areas) however these are the challenges we diffuse every single day.

Every town has that one area known for being tarnished by vandalism, noise pollution and generally the kind of place you avoid like a bad smell. But this is where we step in.

So, what will our Lancashire security guards do to help?

We protect, we prevent and we pre-empt. We control how you are viewed by the public and you can be sure we have measures ready to control the detrimental variables your property, business or site is exposed to.

A town split in so many different ways in terms of policing needs, something’s got to give and it seems quite obvious where the holes lie. Viewed as an elephant in the room that no council or governing body wants to touch, private companies and property owners are turning more and more to security companies in Lancashire to thwart this problem once and for all. We will help and we will make things better.

What is anti-social behaviour?

Trying to answer this question is where the problem lies. In that sense, it’s the worst possible problem any town can experience because the challenges it creates are endless. It’s not a simple crime, there aren’t specific patterns or reasons and there are no planned targets – just people and buildings in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The bad news is to solve anti-social behaviour would be to solve boredom. The good news is to prevent anti-social behaviour would be to use Churchill Security. Confronting confrontational behaviour and combating patterns of vandalism with the consistent presence of an unfazed security force, we can help. We can help reduce the chances of your area becoming an anti-social magnet, reduce your chances of being targeted by criminal damage and, if it’s too late for prevention, we will take tried and tested measures to remove problems such as repetitive vandalism and put things back to normal for you, your business and for local residents.

So, what’ll it be? For so long, the public have resigned themselves to accepting this kind of intimidating problem that in turn comes with a whole catalogue of crimes, but you know what? It’s not acceptable.

If you have any kind of security problem or perhaps you want to remain out of harm’s way, the simple answer is to hire a security guard. Get in touch with us today. Tell us your concerns and we’ll tell you the solutions, it really is that easy.

Whether you’ve experienced the destructive after effects of anti-social behaviour, you want to protect your business from violent crime or you need security measures in place to avoid criminal damage, we will help you every single step of the way.
