In this article, we’re going to look at some of the services we can deliver to Manchester businesses, organisations and individuals. If you’re looking for professional security solutions in Manchester, you’ve come to the right place.


Manchester Manned And Static Guarding

Manned security guarding is the consolidation of security manpower in a set place. As such, manned security guards often operate in an access control, loss prevention, asset protection or crowd control capacity. In fact, essentially any security role requiring security staff to be continually onsite can be classed as manned or static guarding.

In order to perform their role effectively, manned security guards need to be properly trained and highly experienced. For example, this may include training in how to spot and respond to suspicious behaviour, how to implement physical intervention techniques properly and lawfully, how to orchestrate and control evacuations and how to maintain security best practice in a variety of different types of premises. Manned security personnel can also operate in a duel-role capacity where required. This may include taking on first aid, fire warden or health and safety roles.

It’s also important that manned security staff are able to absorb and act in accordance with businesses’ existing culture, dress appropriately for the environment they’re operating in (whether that’s high-vis jackets and hardhats or smart corporate attire) and conduct themselves in a fashion that enhances a business’s reputation.


Mobile Security Patrols

Mobile security patrols involve security professionals undertaking a variety of techniques designed to safeguard large sites (such as business and retail parks) or businesses operating out of multiple premises (such as factories, warehouses and industrial facilities).

Mobile security officers make scheduled and random (to prevent criminals from being able to predict inspection times) inspections on the premises under their watch. These visits may include internal patrols, the implementation of open-air security techniques and checks that security best practice is being adhered to.

The Mobile Patrol service is often paired with alarm response and keyholding services. When you choose a professional keyholder, a full set of your keys will be stored in a secure offsite location. This is helpful if you lock yourself out of the premises – and it is essential for mobile security professionals to be able to respond promptly and effectively to an alarm activation.


Manchester Event Security

If you’re organising an event in Manchester, you need to consider security. Whether it’s a wild birthday bash or a professional business conference, you need to consider how you will be able to keep your guests, property and premises safe.

We’ve created A Comprehensive Security Guide For Event Planners which goes into detail about how to implement proper security at a variety of events. So, check that out if you’re currently thinking about your event’s security.

Here, however, we just want to highlight that, although each event has very different security requirements, Churchill Security are able to provide effective security for events of all sizes and types – from weddings, birthday parties and work dos to executive conferences, festivals, gigs and sporting events.

Retail security guards are highly trained security professionals. Retail security officers play a vital role in loss prevention – acting as an incredibly effective visual deterrent as well as a rapid response solution to criminal activity that takes place on your premises.

Churchill Security’s retail security team will act as your eyes and ears on your shop floor. This involves monitoring for suspicious activity, responding appropriately to any crimes (including the use of physical intervention techniques) and liaising with the emergency services in the event that a security incident does take place.

In addition to uniformed security personnel, we also provide plain-clothes instore detectives. These security operatives work discretely to spot and prevent theft and other criminal activity from occurring.

Our retail security team often operate in a dual role capacity, offering fire safety, first aid, emergency planning and evacuation procedure expertise.


Manchester CCTV Security

CCTV is an excellent visual deterrent; it helps to action an immediate response to any suspicious or criminal activity and provides evidence that can be used to help prosecute offenders in court.

We can provide your Manchester property with a complete CCTV security solution. This includes everything from your initial site assessment and bespoke installation to active monitoring services carried out by fully qualified professionals.

When you choose Churchill Security for a CCTV solution, we will visit your site to help you plan exactly where cameras should be installed to maximise exposure and minimise blind spots.
