Adequate Security Throughout The Year

Adequate Security Throughout The Year

begin your year with adequate security

comprehensive security guard services in London (Haringey)

Every year brings change, new ideas, and better ways of doing things. As we share season’s greetings and new year’s compliments, we will outline the importance of having adequate security throughout the year. 


We offer first-class commercial and residential security services 24 hours a day, with 100% guaranteed peace of mind. All our security guard officers are SIA licensed, certified, insured, qualified, skilled, and experienced enough to manage any security situation. 


We are always on guard.

It goes without question that crime is at its peak at the beginning of every year. Burglary and theft are the most common crimes carried out by criminal fortune seekers to sustain their lives as the new year commences. Criminals are always on the lookout for opportunities to breach vulnerable properties or premises and commit their crimes. Without adequate security protocols, you risk losing your properties and assets to the misfortune of vandalism, theft, and burglary. 



For more than 35 years, we have been protecting residential estates, commercial properties, hotels, schools, retailers, construction sites, and warehouses, among other businesses, from diversified industries. Our goal is to provide adequate security guard services and solutions to businesses and individuals. We consult with each client to develop a bespoke security solution designed to address their specific security requirements. We are always on guard and provide comprehensive security guard services, which include manned security guards, mobile patrols, alarm responses, lock and unlocks, key holding services, vacant property inspections, event security, reception security, CCTV monitoring, and canine security, among others. 


advantages of having adequate security

Before we outline the advantages of having sufficient security solutions, it is necessary that we classify the difference between general security and adequate security. Having any security measures in place to protect properties and assets is considered “general security,” whereas adequate security is the customization of general security services to be sufficient. Now with that being said, the next questions are: 

1) Do You Have an Adequate Security Solution? 

2) How do you know whether your security solutions are sufficient?  

4) Where do you find an adequate security service?  

5) How do you secure your assets and properties with reliable service throughout the year? 


free consultations

If you are looking for answers to any of the above questions, or maybe you are in need of assistance with any security-related issues, then search no further than Metropolitan Security Services. Consult with our security experts for free; we are always available 24 hours a day at your service to offer assistance. We adhere to the policy of responding to every security request with immediate action, even on short notice. Besides, we offer free security and risk assessments as we evaluate the appropriateness of your current security measures. Following assessments, we provide detailed security reports with specifics for all of your security requests. We can schedule free one-on-one meetings with all local business executives and clients in London (specifically, Haringey) in addition to reports and assessments. Get in touch now.


sense of security and peace of mind

  • Adequate security is essential for business owners, as it guarantees 100% peace of mind.
  • Adequate security assists in the reduction of insurance premiums.
  • Adequate security mitigates risks including vandalism, theft, and assault.


Knowing that you have appropriate security solutions to safeguard your residential and commercial premises means you will never have to worry about responding to late-night duty calls. Spare your staff and family the risk of responding to any security duty request; when you work with Metropolitan Security Services, our security guard will take on the sole responsibility of patrolling your premises at regular intervals in search of any potential crimes or security breaches. The presence of our uniformed security guards actively monitoring unusual activities on your premises is one of the most effective crime-deterrent solutions. 

At Metropolitan Security Services, we go beyond just protecting assets and properties; we offer security guard officers with excellent interpersonal skills. All our security guards go through consistent emotional intelligence training so as to enhance their knowledge and skills to deal with any security issue with as little disruption as possible. Our team has managed to maintain a resounding reputation based on proven aptitude, a clean appearance, courteous manners, and their ability to manage the most testing security situations. 


the importance of time and communication in security

Communication is an important aspect of security; when there is a lack of proper communication within any security system, that security automatically becomes inadequate. Every security guard we provide is capable of relating, engaging, and communicating appropriately when they are carrying out their duties. For businesses’ security guards will actively improve your customer care services with their excellent communication skills while they protect your businesses from any threatening environment. In residential estates, security guards will actively use interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence to identify, inspect, and monitor any unusual activities within these residential premises.

Time is one of the most crucial aspects of security, which will determine its adequacy. Whenever a security alert emerges, a security guard is expected to respond immediately and attend to the alert. Alarm systems, CCTV cameras, and other security devices can generate security alerts, but these devices cannot take action to deal with security threats. Metropolitan Security Services understands that delays in responding to a security alert can lead to the loss of property and valuable assets. which is why we adhere to the policy of responding to every security alert with immediate action to safeguard properties and assets, even on short notice. If your current security systems are lacking in their response time, this means you have an inadequate security solution. Do not risk losing any valuable assets due to poor protection response time. Supplement your security systems with our immediate response services and enjoy the guarantee of adequacy within your security systems.

    Security Solutions For Housing Associations

    Housing Association Security

    security solutions for housing associations

    "Why Is Security Crucial To Housing Associations?"

    It is undeniable that housing associations play crucial roles in accommodating thousands of people in communities by providing affordable housing. in order to provide good service, housing associations are responsible for attending to the needs of their tenants, such as making repairs and doing housekeeping. Registered social landlords are responsible for taking into account the protection, safety, and security of their tenants. 

    Any premises, regardless of its function, is vulnerable to several forms of risk. which is why Metropolitan Security Services is working together with housing associations to support local communities in creating safe and secure living environments. We provide bespoke security services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, taking into account budgetary constraints and developing preventative solutions and action plans to mitigate the risks associated with crime, such as property theft and anti-social behavior. 

    All our security guards are SIA-licensed, qualified, certified, insured, and experienced enough to attend to and take control of any security situation that may arise at a residential premise. We value social values and ethics, which is why we offer security guards with excellent interpersonal skills capable of using emotional intelligence to detect, inspect, and monitor unusual activities.

    Improving Living Standards

    When we work with private registered providers of social housing, our security guards will take on the responsibility of improving the living conditions for tenants on behalf of housing associations. For example, if our security officers detect dampness, mold, leaks, or electrical faults, they will immediately notify the appropriate authorities. This means the presence of metro security officers making regular patrols and inspections in search of any possible risk, that might affect the wellbeing of tenants will mitigate tenants’ complaints and dissatisfactions. Metro security guards will conduct thorough inspections daily to look for any security breaches on your premises, and if any are discovered, they will take immediate action to eliminate any threats and restore your premises’ security status. In large estates, housing associations are responsible for accommodating different families from different social backgrounds, and obviously, in some cases, some families might have anti-social behaviours that might affect the neighbouring families. It is necessary for housing associations to work with security guards with enough social and emotional intelligence to detect, identify, monitor, and control antisocial behaviors. 

    Attention To Minor Grievances And Information Dissemination

    To provide tenants with better service, housing, and living conditions, housing associations must pay close attention to feedback and complaints. Private registered providers of social housing can improve the quality of their service by attending to grievances and resolving complaints from tenants. Security guards can serve as an extra set of eyes and ears for registered social landlords. One of the primary duties of security officers working with housing associations is to make use of their excellent interpersonal skills to engage in conversations, including listening to petty grievances, complaints, and feedback from tenants. Information and feedback are crucial to housing associations, as they will point out specific areas in need of improvement. When a housing association consistently uses this information to improve areas of weakness, their service will improve as well as their reputation. Attending to tenants’ grievances builds up trust, hence creating strong relationships between tenants and registered social landlords. When housing associations and tenants create strong bonds, this means the associations will mitigate losses and unnecessary expenditures on their properties, which might be brought about by unhappy or dissatisfied tenants. On behalf of the housing association, Metro security guards will pay attention to tenants’ minor grievances, submitting the information to the appropriate authorities of the association. 

    security guards will serve as an extra set of eyes and ears for housing assosiations

    Theft And Vandalism

    Dealing with theft and vandalism is one of the most common challenges faced by registered social landlords on their premises. Theft and vandalism can be either external or internal. Internal theft and vandalism involve tenants stealing from their neighbours and the destruction or misuse of housing association property by tenants, whereas external theft and vandalism would be carried out by intruders or non-tenants. These criminally unacceptable activities have a huge negative economic impact on private registered providers of social housing and can result in major setbacks. But housing associations can save their organisations a great deal of money, property, and assets from theft and vandalism by working together with a local private security guard company like Metropolitan Security Services to safeguard and protect their premises. Besides working with security monitoring devices to control and monitor vandalism and theft, working together with the police and local authorities enables us to guarantee 100% complete security and protection against theft and vandalism 

    Making use of security guards to safeguard and protect the security of tenants and properties is one of the most cost-effective ways for housing associations to improve their services. At Metropolitan Security Services, we serve and assist in building safe and secure living conditions for our communities, which is why we have special security solutions for housing associations.

    Whether an association is managing large estates to accommodate families, small facilities to cater for the elderly, or homeless hostels, whatever purpose it serves, we offer non-budget constraining solutions. We understand how housing associations’ security requests are unique and determined by the purpose they serve. As a result, we work closely with each association to develop and provide a bespoke security service. Get in touch now to consult with our housing association experts for free. as they can provide you with a detailed report of all the security measures required to improve and secure your services.
