When do you need to supplement security services?

Whenever your current security system fails to attend to your security requests, this is always a first sign that you need additional service to enhance your security. There are countless reasons why individuals and businesses might need to supplement their existing security systems. Some of the most common reasons are 


1) Business Growth and Expansion

When a business grows, productivity increases along with the assets and properties. Likewise, the more a business expands its operations, the more it is likely to be exposed to more security threats. It is crucial for a business to maintain an adequate security system as it grows, or else they risk losing their assets and properties. Whenever a business goes through the growth process, its current security systems will automatically become inadequate, necessitating the need to supplement these systems. 

At Metropolitan Security Services, we work with multiple businesses from diversified industries, such as commercial real estate, hotels, resorts, construction, education, financial services, professional services, arts, culture, entertainment, accommodations, and food services, among others. We understand the principles of business growth and expansion, which is why we provide bespoke security solutions to supplement your existing security systems.

2) An increase in threats and potential criminalities

If assets and properties are in an environment where there has been an increase in security threats and potential criminalities, then you have every reason to supplement your existing security systems. Theft and vandalism are two examples of security threats and criminalities that can spread quickly without warning. Prevention is always better than cure, and it is crucial that you protect all your assets and properties from criminality by all means necessary. Metropolitan Security Services offers a variety of security solutions to supplement your current security measures in the event of any unexpected rise in security threats and potential crimes. 

In cases where primary security systems are CCTVs, surveillance cameras, alarm systems, and biometric access control. Metro Security officers are trained and equipped with enough knowledge, skill, and experience to reinforce these systems. Our security guards constantly go through technical training to keep them up to date with the latest security monitoring technologies. This means all our security guards are capable of working with and dealing with any security device, making them the first and best option for supplemental security guards.

Mobile patrols

When you already have manned security guards and security monitoring devices as primary security solutions, then our mobile patrol services will be another option at your disposal to supplement your existing security solutions. The presence of our marked mobile patrol vehicles constantly monitoring your premises and properties will deter any potential criminal offenders. In addition to working together with the police and local authorities, our mobile patrol teams will carry out thorough inspections in search of any security breaches. If any security breach has been identified, our mobile patrol teams are tasked with immediately taking every possible action to protect your properties and assets and eliminate every security threat.

Likewise, our alarm response teams work hand in hand with our mobile patrol teams, and they adhere to the policy of responding to every security incident in the shortest space of time possible. We guarantee that you won’t have to worry about responding to late-night duty calls when you work with Metropolitan Security Services to supplement your alarm response security. 


Canine Security

We offer security dog services along with professional dog handlers as an alternative to mobile patrols and other security services. Canine security is one of the most recommended security reinforcement solutions to enhance the effectiveness of manned security guards and security monitoring devices. Security dogs are the most effective solution to search for, detect, and eliminate potential crimes on your properties and premises. Our goal is to provide first-class security and protection. For this reason, we will provide highly trained security dogs accompanied by qualified, experienced, and certified dog handlers to protect your assets and properties. 


3) Unexpected situations and security emergencies

Security emergencies can occur without notifications, especially on short notice. But when they occur, none of your properties or assets should be left vulnerable to any risk or threatening environment. Metropolitan Security Services understands that emergencies can happen at any time, so we provide 24-hour emergency backup security services on short notice. Whenever your existing security solutions have failed to respond to your request, it is our responsibility to ensure that none of your properties or assets are jeopardised.

      How Businesses Can Deal With Internal Security Threats

      How Businesses Can Deal With Internal Security Threats

      how businesses can deal with internal security threats

      If you don’t take precautions to protect your business from security threats, you will risk losing a great deal of money, property, and assets, and in worse-case scenarios, you might risk losing your entire business. A business security threat is any situation, condition, or environment that has a negative impact on the productivity, growth, or expansion of your business. Anything that can result in your business or company suffering financial or physical losses is considered a security threat. 


      Local Businesses In Haringey Suffer At The Expense Of These Security Threats.

      Every day, local businesses in Haringey suffer at the expense of these security threats, which can be either external or internal. When employees steal, use, or misuse business assets (property) without the employer’s consent or the company’s authorization, this is known as employee theft. Theft from employees is one very good example of an internal security threat. Besides theft-related issues: anything that happens within the organization of your business or company that might lead to loss or damage to property is defined as an “internal security threat.” Employees may express themselves in unacceptable or aggressive behaviours for a variety of reasons, which may result in businesses being vandalized. In simple terms, vandalism-related activities by your staff and employees are another example of an internal security threat to your business. When machines, appliances, or electrical equipment are not properly monitored, or maybe they are not properly switched off, this is a recipe for creating a dangerous working environment besides increasing unnecessary expenditures and bills for the company. 

      examples of internal security threats

      Abuse Or Misuse Of Company Working Hours Or Production

      Abuse or misuse of company working hours or production hours is another internal security threat that is often overlooked by business owners. Without constant monitoring, employees often take advantage of their employers’ absence to use work production hours to attend to their personal issues; if this goes out of hand, this means the productivity of the company is reduced, which has a direct impact on the company’s profits, returns, revenue, and income streams. Depending on your specific business model, internal security threats differ, which is why at Metropolitan Security Services we consult and work closely with you to develop bespoke security solutions. Get in touch now to consult with our internal security threats experts for free and get a free security and risk assessment, along with a detailed report of every security protocol required to protect your business from every internal security threat.

      Close Monitoring Of Business Property Assets

      solution to deal with internal security theft

      The most recommended solution to deal with internal security threats is close monitoring of business property and assets. This can be done by working with professional security guards within the internal structures of your company or business. Metropolitan Security Services is a private Haringey security guard company that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide close monitoring security services to businesses, assets, and properties. For many years, we have worked closely with Haringey businesses and communities to provide first-class residential and commercial security guards and services in accordance with British established standards. To guarantee satisfaction for the close monitoring of your business, property, or assets, we only offer security guards with enough qualifications, certifications, insurance, SIA licensing, and experience to effectively attend to any security situation.

      Security Guards Vs Internal Security Threats

      Security guards will perform regular mobile patrols in search of any internal security breaches or potential internal threats against your business. If any are found, a security guard is tasked with taking immediate action to restore the security of your businesses. The responsibilities of these security officers include performing thorough risk and security assessments, identifying and eliminating threats, and restoring security and protection status. Depending on the security threat level, security guards are equipped with enough skills to deal with internal security threat issues swiftly and with the minimum of disruption, as well as work together with the police, emergency services, and local authorities. In case of medical and fire emergencies and threats, all our security guards have received training and certification in emergency first aid at work and firefighting skills to protect your business. This means when you have our security personnel working within your business organization, you don’t have to worry about handling any security emergencies that might threaten your business, property, staff, or assets. 

      In your absence, security guards will work closely with your staff and employees, and security officers will solely have the responsibility to identify, monitor, and inspect unusual behaviours among employees. Security guards will serve as an extra eye for your businesses; they will keep a close watch on theft or vandalism-related activities and take every necessary action to protect your businesses from any of these threats. In the presence of security guards, it is difficult for employees to misuse or abuse working or production hours. One of the most significant benefits of having security guards handle and combat internal security threats is that nothing will ever go missing from your business because everything will be accounted for. Security officers are responsible for the accountability of everything that goes in and out of your business; they are tasked with carrying out searches on individuals, delivery vehicles, and traffic where necessary. 

      Security Monitoring Devices

      CCTVs, surveillance cameras, motion detectors, alarms, and biometric authenticators can be used to effectively monitor, detect, inspect, and control internal security threats. Security guards play a crucial role in ensuring that these security monitoring devices always perform at their best. As a result, at Metropolitan Security Services, we always ensure that all of our security guards receive regular tech training to keep them up to date on the latest security technological systems. In order for security monitoring devices to guarantee 100% satisfaction, they must be managed, maintained, and operated only by qualified security personnel with relevant experience, licensing, and skills in working with these devices. 

       Every business is unique and requires unique security solutions and protection against specific internal security threats. Contact us right away for a free consultation with our internal security threats experts, who can create a bespoke security solution tailored to your specific business.

        How to Prevent and Control Employee Theft in Haringey

        How to Prevent and Control Employee Theft in Haringey

        how to control employee theft in Haringey

        When your staff steal, use, or misuse company property (assets) without your permission or the company’s authorization, this is defined as employee theft. In the past 5 years, there has been an increase in reports that local businesses in Haringey have suffered at the expense of employees stealing, using, and misusing their employers’ properties without express consent. If employers do not attend to preventing or controlling the issue of employee theft, their businesses could suffer great financial losses. Besides, local Haringey companies are losing a great deal of money and assets due to employee theft. Before you proceed with reading this post, you should ask yourself a few questions. 


        1. Are all your employees loyal and honest?
        2. How vulnerable is your company to employee theft?
        3. How do you deal with employee theft and protect your company?
        4. Do you have any security or protection against theft from employees?
        5. How reliable are your security measures against theft from employees?


        business evaluation against employee theft

        Business Evaluation Against Employee Theft

        If you need any assistance in evaluating the security status of your company or business against employee theft, then get in touch now! We offer free consultations, security and risk assessments, and a detailed report on your company’s current employee theft status. While it is necessary to secure every aspect of your company from any potential threat or harmful environment, employers often overlook internal security issues and then turn to focus more on protecting their businesses from external security threats. 

        Yet internal security issues can do more damage to your business than you realize. Prevention is always better than resolving an issue, which is why every employer must make sure they have adequate, reliable security protocols to protect their companies from both internal and external security threats. The fact remains that not everyone you hire will be faithful, reliable, and trustworthy in their work with you. For various reasons, certain individuals will be interested in stealing from you.

         It gets worse when unfaithful employees become toxic and begin influencing other faithful workers to join them in committing such crimes. Besides stealing tangible assets from your company, when employees steal or misuse time, this can have a huge negative impact on the productivity of your company, and there is no doubt that when productivity is affected, the company’s returns, profits, and income are directly reduced. 


        How To Deal With Employee Theft

        tackle employee theft

        Considering that your staff is equipped with enough knowledge and understanding of every aspect of the company they work with, without monitoring and inspection, dishonest and unfaithful staff could take advantage of such knowledge to collaborate with their fellow non-staff to execute bigger theft operations. One good example would be the use of delivery vehicles to smuggle out valuable assets from your company during working hours. Another example would be that the staff responsible for holding the key to your business premises might come after hours to commit clean undercover theft operations, which can go unnoticed.


        Which is why companies must consider having the locking and unlocking of their businesses done by trusted, reliable security providers like Metropolitan Security Services. If you need to guarantee that nothing goes in or out of your company or business without proper accountability, then working with us is one of your best options. We are a Haringey-based private security guard company, and for years we have worked closely together with local businesses to tackle the issue of employee theft.

         We guarantee the provision of a bespoke security solution 24 hours a day, seven days a week because we have been providing locally trained, qualified, certified, SIA licensed, and skilled security guards with enough experience to deal with employee theft issues at your company as quickly and quietly as possible. 

        Prevention And Control Of Theft From Employees

        Monitoring the behaviour and activities of your employees closely is considered one of the best possible options to prevent and control employee theft. As a result, Metropolitan Security Services specialises in providing professional security guards with the capabilities of monitoring, inspecting, and detecting unusual behaviour among your staff and employees. Despite the fact that our security guards will work with the police and local authorities to guarantee the total protection of your company or business, this means you don’t have to worry about anything, as our security officers will deal with staff theft issues immediately

        The presence of security guards alone on your business premises would discourage and demotivate employees from stealing or even attempting to steal, as they would be aware that they were being watched. Employees cannot steal time or misuse business production time in the presence of manned security guards because security officers are seen as an extra set of eyes for the company. Close monitoring, inspection, and searches of delivery vehicles, traffic, and individuals coming in and out of your business premises would make it difficult for a dishonest, unfaithful employee to smuggle or steal company property without being noticed.

         Security devices like CCTVs, surveillance cameras, alarm systems, motion detectors, and biometric authentication all contribute to the protection, prevention, and control of employee theft. These devices are more effective and can guarantee 100% protection when they are operated, monitored, and inspected by skilled, experienced, qualified, and SIA-licensed security officers. Which is why we always make sure that every security guard at Metropolitan Security Services constantly goes through tech training to ensure they are always kept up to date when it comes to working with security monitoring devices. 

        Securing And Protecting Your Business From Employee Theft

        we are your best security option

        Performing regular patrols to monitor, inspect, and take immediate action to protect your business from every possible threat, including theft by employees, is among the duties performed by security guards at your business premises. We guarantee your satisfaction when we are in charge of holding the keyslocking and unlocking your premises, and nothing will ever go missing unaccounted for. We will be solely responsible for closely monitoring unusual visits from both staff and non-staff, as well as any suspicious activity, during and after business hours.


        In addition, we have an alarm response team working together with our entire security teams in accordance with the policy of immediately responding to every security request 24 hours a day. Which means no matter what time of the day it is, you will never have to worry about responding to late-night duty calls or attending to any alarms. When we respond to a security alert, request, or call, our security guards are tasked with conducting a thorough inspection in search of security breaches, and if any are discovered, they are responsible for taking immediate action to restore and ensure that your business premises are properly secured and protected. For added security against employee theft or external theft by non-staff, Metropolitan Security Services offers mobile patrols and security dog services accompanied by licenced professional dog handlers. The regular presence of mobile patrol vehicles constantly visiting your business premises will deter potential criminals.

        Contact us right away; we provide free consultations, free security and risk assessments for your business, and a detailed report of every security protocol required to protect and secure your business against employee theft.

          Industrial And Warehouse Security In Haringey

          Industrial And Warehouse Security In Haringey

          Industrial And Warehouse Security In Haringey

          In Haringey, warehouses serve multiple purposes for local businesses. While most companies rely on them for the storage of stocks of goods, which are valuable assets worth large amounts of money, others use warehouses as strategic facilities to store products and supplies while they prepare them for distribution. For heavy industries, warehouses can be used to store and accommodate heavy machinery and hardware, and for light industries, they can be used as production facilities as well. For whatever purpose a warehouse might serve in Haringey, the fact still stands that these huge facilities are characterised by their capability of storing and accommodating valuable assets worth a great deal of money.

          For this reason, whether its petty theft, employee theft, massive break-ins or robberies, warehouses are always a primary target for criminal fortune seekers. Unless businesses and warehouse owners are willing to risk and lose their valuable properties, stock, and assets, they must prioritise securing warehouses with adequate security protocols. Get in touch with our warehouse security experts for free and get a free security and risk assessment for your business, along with a detailed report of every security measure required to secure your facility. 

          wether its petty theft

          Haringey Warehouse Security and Protection

           This post is going to outline some of the security protocols that businesses and warehouse owners can adopt and implement, in order to secure and protect their warehouses from any possible threat or harmful environment. Adequate warehouse security and protection protocols are essential for every business as they reduce operational costs, insurance costs, compensations, and other liabilities that a business may pay to its stakeholders. 



          initial step in security

          Surveillance is crucial in industrial and warehouse security, and it comes in two different forms, which can be either security monitoring devices or manned security guards. Security monitoring devices involve the use of CCTVs, surveillance cameras, motion detectors, alarm systems, and biometric authentication, among others. Installing electronic security monitors and devices to inspect and monitor every entrance and exit point of the warehouse, is one of the most recommended actions to protect your facility. While additional electronic monitoring inside and outside your facility would help to protect your property and assets, in order to secure your premises with 100% guaranteed protection.

          You will need professional security personnel at your warehouse and industrial premises. Security personnel or manned security guards will take full responsibility for the inspection, monitoring, operation, and maintenance of your electronic monitors and devices. Responding to alarms and immediately attending to alerts raised by electronic monitors and devices, is one of the main duties performed by security guards in warehouses and industrial facilities. One of the best ways to ensure that nothing goes missing unaccounted for in any warehouse or industrial facility is by having adequate surveillance. 

          Warehouse And Industrial Security Guards

          Metropolitan Security Services only provides top-tier, first-rate warehouse and industrial security guards who have relevant certifications, qualifications, insurance, licensing, and experience. We have a flawless reputation in Haringey for providing quality warehouse protection to local businesses in accordance with established British standards. Our security officers will maintain a rigorous access control system to ensure all visitors, delivery drivers, labourers, management, and facility staff provide identification upon arrival and sign in and out of the facility while at the same time adhering to every company policy.

          Besides closely inspecting and monitoring unusual behaviours all over the warehouse, our security guards will be a visible eye for your company, tasked with making sure that every employee theft issue is prevented and dealt with as soon as it occurs. Using excellent interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence, Metro Sec warehouse security guards are capable of swiftly tackling any security issue that may arise at your facility with as little disruption as possible to your business. Since we understand how security guards are seen as visible, trustworthy employees of your company and are usually the first point of contact for your customers, they have excellent reception skills. The duties of warehouse security guards include performing patrols, crime-deterring searches, and thoroughly inspecting delivery vehicles and traffic for theft and smuggling, among others. 

          Industrial And Warehouse Security Services

          Haringey business security for years

          Criminals do not have set work schedules, nor do they work on a fixed time sheet to victimise their next targeted warehouse or industrial facility. Which is why at Metropolitan Security Services, we make our services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Even on short notice, we respond to every security emergency with immediate action. For years, local warehouses and industrial facilities in Haringey have been satisfied with our exceptional emergency backup security services. We adhere to the policy of responding to every security call with an active response in the shortest space of time possible, ensuring that no criminal gets away with a crime.

          If you have protection cover under our key holding service, you will never have to worry about responding to late-night duty calls, nor will you have to risk putting yourself or your staff in any potential danger. No matter what time of day it is, our alarm response team will always respond to every alarm alert immediately and without delay.

          While our lock and unlock service ensures that nothing is smuggled into or out of a warehouse or industrial facility without being noticed or accounted for, you never have to worry about internal criminal activities such as employee undercover theft. This is because only an authorised individual can lock and unlock your facility.

           The presence of our security dogs, accompanied by professional dog handlers, would be the best option to enhance quality security and protection for your warehouse and industrial facility with 100% guaranteed peace of mind. Reinforcing your existing security protocols with mobile patrols is one of the most recommended options to deter external criminal activity like burglary and robbery, among others. The visual presence of marked mobile patrol vehicles regularly patrolling your warehouse and industrial facility will deliver a clear message to potential intruders not to easily target your business for these criminal offences. 

          Get in touch now, consult with our industrial and warehouse security experts for free, and get a free risk and security assessment with a detailed report of security measures required for your specific business model.

            Why Are Retail Security Guards Prioritised In London?

            Why are retail security guards prioritised in London?

            why are retail security guards prioritised in london

            Given that everyone is aware of how retail security guards can help protect retail businesses in London, there are plenty of ways in which retailers can take advantage of retail security officers to boost the profits of their businesses. Due to the heavy competition faced by retail businesses in London, quality customer service and a strong brand reputation have been proven methods which successful retailers have implemented over their competition. While retailers can use retail security guards to secure their stores and provide excellent customer service, this post would outline the reasons why retail security guards are prioritised in London. 


            First Impressions And Great Customer Service

            Retail security guards are often the first point of contact for your customers, so they must be professional, personable, and in possession of interpersonal and reception skills. With such a security person at hand, this will create a sense of security for your clients. Your customers will become more confident in your business. When people gain trust in your business, they will have confidence in your products, and they are likely to rely on your service. Thus, the presence of a retail security officer alone creates a healthy, safe shopping environment, which is usually the first preference for every customer. The fact remains that everyone prefers to do their shopping in environments where they are kept safe and secure. Knowing that a retail security guard is keeping an eye on every unusual activity, people will feel more comfortable and are likely to spend more time in the store. As a result, retail security guards can indirectly increase sales and profits, which is why most retailers in London prioritise retail security guards. 


            General Inspection

            It Is Necessary That Retailers In London Must Minimise And Cut Unnecessary Expenditure And This Is One Of The Main Duties Of Retail Security Guards

            Besides securing the safety of customers, staff, assets, and stock, retail security officers are responsible for premises patrol and general inspection duties, which can save retailers a great deal of money. This is how. After hours, staff members in general might forget to switch off machinery or electrical appliances, and this can leave machinery operating without inspection overnight. While this can cause unexpected harm or possible danger to staff and clients alike, it can also cause unnecessary electrical billing and expenses to retailers.

            Quality Protection

            There are countless ways in which retailers in London can secure and protect their businesses

            At Metropolitan Security Services, we provide retail security guards with all the necessary certifications, qualifications, skills, and experience to guarantee that every retailer performs at its best. In the event of a medical emergency, a retail security officer has enough first aid training to attend to the affected person while waiting for emergency services to arrive. Retail security officers are capable of identifying and monitoring unusual behaviours among staff and customers and taking precise and effective action with minimum disruption to your business environment.


            Responding to alarms and patrolling the business premises are some of the primary duties of retail security officers. In order to reduce and control theft-related activities that can cause huge impacts or great losses to the business, for example, delivery vehicles can be used to smuggle out a great deal of valuable stock and retail equipment. It is necessary for a retailer to have proper and strict monitoring of everything coming in and out of the business and to keep records of when certain activities took place and how they occurred. Time keeping is one of the most critical aspects of keeping every business performing at its best. It is of great importance that retail businesses in London operate in accordance with their official business hours, which is why the locking and unlocking of retail stores must be done at the exact scheduled time.

            Having retail security guards to handle the locking and unlocking of your retail premises means you will not have to worry about delayed production and working hours being wasted as these security personnel are always available at your site before and after working and production hours to lock and unlock your premises. Likewise, retail security guards are technically trained to operate and manage technological devices, which include cameras, motion detectors, and alarms, along with key-holding responsibility, which means you don’t have to worry about responding to late-night unexpected duties, nor do you have to trouble your staff outside business working hours to check or handle any possible faulty or risky situations.

              The Importance Of Hospital Security Guards In Health Facilities

              The importance of hospital security guards in health facilities

              Reasons why health facilities need hospital security guards and not general security guards

              The environment around doctors, nurses, and patients isn’t precisely their primary concern. It is not their responsibility to keep an eye out for odd behaviour, nor do they continuously look to see if someone is snooping around taking patients’ drugs. Healthcare workers must prioritise their everyday responsibilities such as saving lives at stack and taking care of patients which keeps them busy and occupied every time. This is where security comes into play, security plays a lot of important roles within the health sector. Every floor, the perimeter, and the parking lots should all have security guards on duty. This means if staff members, patients, or even visitors notice anything unusual or might need any sort of help, a security officer is always on hand to assist. 

              The Most Important Security Roles in the Health Sector

              In medical centers, a lot of people come and go during the day. Patients are at their most vulnerable when they are ill and admitted to a hospital, and there are considerable risks of violence, theft, and other crimes in hospitals and medical centers. If there are no security measures in place, hospitals might be simple targets for theft of medical equipment, patients’ personal properties, or staff members’ belongings. Patients may experience unnecessary stress from other disruptions, such as unwelcome visitors or visitors who are under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicating substances. A significant quantity of sensitive information needs to be protected, and a security plan needs to be in place to secure this sensitive data. In a hospital, adequate security can offer protection and peace of mind. All of the patients who are treated at the facility can feel safe and secure if the hospital has adequate levels of security. Protecting health care professionals who need a secure workplace, such as nurses, doctors, and other staff members, is another duty of hospital security guards. Hospital security is crucial, and there are numerous advantages to having proper security in place. 

              The Primary Duties Of Hospital Security Guards

              The Primary Duties Of Hospital Security Guards

              Our hospital security officers will make sure that all hospital property is secure while also protecting staff, patients, and visitors. Their responsibilities include patrolling the structure and its surroundings, keeping an eye on all activities within and outside the hospital, and working to avoid disruptions, vandalism, theft, and fire inside the building. On a regular basis, necessary security-related reports are made to the appropriate responsible authorities. In addition, we provide hospital security guards trained to follow every hospital’s protocol to alert you to any problems that can jeopardise patients’ safety or the structure’s integrity, such as maintenance problems. Even though most medical centres have a lot in common, we understand how each medical facility has certain unique protocols. For this reason, you can consult our medical security experts for free and get a free security and risk assessment together with a full detailed report of every security measure needed in place to better secure the facility. 

              Hospital Security Guards With Special Skills

              Hospital Security Guards With Special Skills

              We offer hospital security guards with a variety of skills, unlike other general security guards. These include acute observational abilities, which are essential because it’s important for security to continuously be on the lookout for anything suspicious, such as unauthorised vehicles, anyone entering prohibited areas, patients who appear lost, or damaged security cameras. Our hospital security officers will be visible members of the medical staff and occasionally the first person a patient or visitor contacts. Customer service, reception, and concierge skills are also necessary.

               Our hospital security guards are trained to be courteous and proficient in guiding people in the right direction. Interacting with patients, hospital staff, and others is a communication skill used by Metropolitan security guards at hospitals. Despite sending information, responding to inquiries, and addressing issues using their professional communication skills, security guards in hospitals can maintain a secure environment for patients and staff by being able to communicate effectively. Our hospital security guards receive extra training that they may be able to pick up on even the slightest changes in a person’s behaviour or environment. They are able to identify certain activities or signs and intervene, for instance, if a patient is acting suspiciously or if a room is out of place. 

              A hospital security guard can identify patients who are in distress or who require medical assistance by paying close attention to detail. To carry out their tasks, hospital security officers must have physical fitness, with the ability to stand, walk a distance, and move quickly. It’s crucial for hospital security guards to be capable of working under pressure because they usually work in emergency situations. In an emergency, they are required to be able to reason clearly and act quickly. In tense situations, our security guards are capable of maintaining their emotions and the calmness of others.

               Metropolitan Hospital security officers are trained to utilise and maintain security systems because they are a significant component in hospital security. Understanding how to operate security cameras, alarm systems, and other technologies that keep a hospital secure fall into this category. 

              Health Care Departments That Need Extra Security Monitoring.

              Health Care Departments That Need Extra Security Monitoring

              Emergency departments are very chaotic and highly charged with emotion. In order to ensure that everyone is able to reach their desired destinations swiftly, it’s crucial to maintain order, provide a calming presence, and keep access open. Due to the fact that emergency departments are open 24/7, close monitoring of the internal and external access points for ambulatory (ambulance) and non-ambulatory operations is required. While doctors’ and nurses’ first priority in these departments is to save lives, security has a responsibility to reduce confusion, conflicts, and disruption. 

              Due to the increased danger of violence brought on by a patient’s condition, behaviour, and mental health, we provide a specialised hospital security team response to protect both patients and medical personnel. The pharmacy is one of the most targeted departments for theft because it stores bulk prescriptions and medication, making it particularly vulnerable. Hence, close monitoring must be prioritised. There is a high risk of theft around cashiers and cash collection stations. Internal theft might be just as problematic as thefts committed by visitors or patients. A security camera system with CCTV monitoring is used as a deterrent to criminality inside the hospital. In order to properly prosecute criminals, it is also a potent device that can be utilised to gather evidence of criminal conduct. 

              Metropolitan Hospital Security guards have every necessary skill required to use and inspect these devices as well as respond to remote alarms depending on the size of the healthcare facility. Various deliveries and the storage of expensive and necessary supplies keep hospitals busy. Security can be responsible for keeping an eye out for any suspicious activity by monitoring the flow of traffic in the parking and delivery areas. 

              Despite this overview on the important roles of security within the heath sector they consult with our hospital security experts for free, they will provide a free security and risk assessment with a detailed report of every necessary security protocol needed in place to better secure your facility

                Protect Your Property

                real estates 1 e1655919670391

                Your property is like your fortress, accommodating valuable assets within. It goes without question that properties always gain more value with time. When you own a property, it is a multipurpose lifetime investment that is ever-increasing in its value. From both a business and personal perspective, properties are like kingdoms full of treasures.  

                Do not risk your valuable investment

                IMG 1655795128684 1 e1655922109202

                Every property is a valuable investment with an ever-increasing value, but there is one thing we all have to accept. Properties are vulnerable to losing their value if exposed to any sort of threat or danger. In any case, it is not wise to risk your property, nor do you need any damage to this precious investment. Why would you risk losing anything that belongs to you when you have the option to protect it?

                What and who is the risk?

                Property can be threatened or damaged by criminal activities like theft and vandalism. In the case of vacant properties, illegal inhabitants can be a threat to your property as they can be capable of doing unpredictable activities to your asset. This is why it is necessary to have a vacant property inspection. An unmonitored situation can bring untold destruction to your property. For example, if no one responds to a small fire situation, everything on your property might end up in ashes in a matter of minutes. The list of possible risks is endless. Yes, this sounds threatening because it is real.

                Prices for weekly vacant property inspections with a full detailed report start at as little as £10.00 per week. By the usual standard terms of insurance, Metropolitan Security Services will provide you with a fully recorded VPI security visit by web requirements.
