As the #1 SIA-Approved contractor, Churchill Support Services are well-positioned to provide security for your premises. Whether it be a small office building, a municipal council chamber, or a celebrated town hall, we ensure any problems on the outside don’t impact what happens within.
With our extensive range of services, we provide the security solution your premises desires – simply speak with our team of experts to determine the right combination for you.
Government buildings will naturally face a variety of security threats, from protesters rallying around the entrance to targeted attacks aimed at spreading terror through the community.
Security guards are crucial to seeing off any and all threats, and are able to control access to the premises, challenge suspicious individuals, and provide advance warning of serious threats. Not only are they a visible deterrence, but their presence provides a level of stability that fosters trust and co-operation between citizens and their local government.
For larger premises, mobile security patrols are the perfect security solution. Our highly trained officers will patrol the boundaries of your site, ensuring those who are considering criminal action see them and think again. Should a security threat arise, our mobile patrols will respond rapidly, and if needed, intervene to stop any crimes in progress.
Mobile patrols are ideal for areas with a high population of government buildings and agencies – this way, our officers can supply top-notch security for multiple premises at the same time.
CCTV has come a long way from its inception. Here at Churchill, we lead the industry in developing cutting edge techniques to detect and respond to security threats.
Our control centre is open 24/7/365, and can actively monitor thousands of cameras at the same time. Should our highly technical system detect a potential threat, our experienced operators will immediately review the situation and organise a timely response. As such, our CCTV package is best used in tandem with other services, including having officers on the ground to respond to said threats.
Churchill’s joint key holding and alarm response services are a crucial component of securing your premises. We will hold a copy of your keys at an off-site location, allowing us to respond to lock and unlock requests. This avoids the security nightmare that is lost or stolen keys, which can have serious ramifications for local government operations.
The proper investigation and resolution of triggered alarms is also imperative, and with Churchill’s average response time of 30 minutes, we aim to secure your premises as quickly as possible.
With local government fulfilling a broad array of functions, many of their activities and the nature of their material will be sensitive or delicate. This makes it critical that access to certain rooms are limited and controlled, to avoid data leaks or harmful interference.
Churchill’s sophisticated access controls are an excellent way to tackle this. From simple systems like ID cards and fobs all the way to facial recognition and biometric scanning, we provide the exact arrangements you need to secure your restricted areas.
“I would like to express how professional the Churchill staff deployed to our site have been. Many people have tried to access the site, but have always been deterred by the Churchill team. I couldn’t of wished for a better service. Thank you to the team for all your support throughout the project.”
“Since the contract mobilisation, the services delivered by Churchill and our dedicated security officers have been above the standards expected. Dean Cain, our allocated Regional Business Manager, has also been a great support throughout to BWSC, our sites operations and to the security staff.”
“Churchills UK coverage, high degree of flexibility and experienced senior team have resulted in an excellent level of support across our events. Their approach and drive to really understand our events and the type of team they need to deploy at each venue has ensured that our customers and teams truly have a security team that have their safety and security at the forefront of their approach.”
“We appreciate the work Churchill Support Services has done and thank you for your contribution to the successful management of our emergency provision, through which we were able to provide accommodation and support to these often-vulnerable clients.”
“Churchill have taken over the CCTV monitoring for 12 of our locations. The team have handled the process smoothly and efficiently and we are confident that we are in safe hands. There has been consistent communication between us and the control room and they have taken a lot of the pain away from us and our team”.
“Churchill Support Services have been awarded the security contract for our new £32M facility here at Newport. When the facility was opened by HRH Prince Charles, there were a number of VIPs on this day, and the Churchill team worked closely with the Royal Security Team to make the day run smoothly.”
Our security officers are trained to perform a wide variety of responsibilities, and will follow security best practice at every occasion. Their duties could include:
Churchill’s security guards are available 24/7, year-round. Our aim is to provide security that works for you, and part of that is scheduling our services in a way that is convenient and fulfils your specific needs. Whether that means having security in overnight, just in the daytime, or indeed round the clock, our officers are here to help.
This includes all holidays, so if you need security over Christmas, on New Year’s Eve, or over Easter weekend, we have you covered.
Not at all! Our specialist team have experience across a broad range of sites, from small one-room businesses to massive multi-building compounds.
In all cases, we implement a security solution package that addresses key areas of concern, no matter the size of the premises. While different buildings may need multiple or more numerous security measures, we bring our same dedication and professionalism to each and every posting.
Due to our customized approach to security solutions, we have no standard pricing plan. Our prices are instead based on the type and number of services provided, and as a result, are highly flexible.
This grants you greater control over what your budget is spent on – and allows us to tailor our services to provide your premises with the specific security it requires.
All of Churchill’s security guards are fully accredited by the Security Industry Authority (SIA), meaning their training is the best in the business. We pride ourselves on our People First approach, and invest great time in meticulously training our staff to equip them for work in the field.
All of our staff undergo an extensive 5-year vetting process before they enter our service, which underlines their proven honesty and integrity.
As you might expect, the timescale to install CCTV is highly dependent on the size of the premises, and how complex the site is. We start by examining the location, marking down any entry points and possible blind spots, before planning your custom layout.
While some installations can be completed as quickly as one day, some bigger projects may extend to a week. However, all our installations come with the same quality guarantee that Churchill is renowned for.
Churchill Support Services are a nationwide company, and offer our security solutions to all locations in the UK. We manage an expansive network of professional security officers and operations managers, allowing us to offer the same high standard of service everywhere in the country.
For a rundown of what services we can offer where, feel free to contact our knowledgeable team.
To ensure full coverage of the site, all entry points and blind spots need to be covered, as well as any key or restricted areas. Consequently, there is no size-fits-all when it comes to CCTV, as we will first need to assess the size and layout of the premises.
Our specialist team will then make the decision on how many cameras are needed to properly secure the site.
