    When coupled with our expert security personnel, CCTV systems significantly enhance your security measures, assuring a swift and effective response to potential threats or issues. Our highly trained operatives are committed to providing rapid responses to any disturbances and are fully prepared to coordinate with emergency services when the situation requires it.

    How Securing The Maritime Sector Isn’t Always Plain Sailing

    As an island nation, it’ll perhaps come as no surprise that our maritime sector is one of our most pivotal. The latest estimates place the overall value of the seafaring industry at around £116 billion, and offers employment to more than a million people living in the UK. Sadly though, with such popularity comes the inherent risk of crime.

    Many people immediately jump to piracy as the major issue facing shipping by sea, and that’s certainly true, with more than 300 hijackings reported in the most recent figures. Maritime issues aren’t just on open waters, though – instances of hijacking and robbery (67 incidents) and cargo and fuel theft (375 incidents) are steadily rising, prompting more robust security for our maritime sector.
