We are also able to offer dual role responsibilities such as fire safety and first aid, emergency planning and evacuation procedure, keeping your environment safe and your stock secure.
If you’re looking for retail security that goes further than the shop floor, look no further than Churchill Support Services who will go above and beyond to protect every inch of your premises.
For larger facilities such as shopping centres and retail parks, you may need security that goes beyond a fixed location. That’s where our experienced mobile guards come in, delivering extensive coverage to ensure total security across your entire site.

Churchill Support Services can deliver a full CCTV package for your retail premises, from bespoke installation to round-the-clock monitoring services, all carried out by fully trained, qualified and professional personnel.
CCTV provides a fuss-free, high impact security tool which can give you a level of 24/7 protection. As well as acting as an effective visual deterrent, it can also be used as a first-response platform, providing evidence against criminals if necessary. Depending on your level of service, officers monitoring your store will immediately deploy security personnel or alert police.
Working together with you to create the exact solution you need, we will make a full assessment of premises before recommending the best installation strategy for optimal coverage and ultimate peace of mind.
We have been providing comprehensive security solutions to businesses of all sizes and requirements, across a wide range of industries in the UK for more than two decades.
Whether you require mobile patrols to monitor a retail site, security officers to provide protection at your hotel reception, need a key holding and alarm response service for a corporate building, or are looking for a CCTV security solution, we’ve got you covered.
Each of our security officers are SIA licensed and trained to the highest standards. We have also been ranked in the top % of ACS Approved Contractors, with our services being recognised as “industry-leading”.
“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.”Read their story >
”Since that first evening of stress and worry, I can now leave our offices in the evening without having to worry. Every touch point from Churchill has led to this point, and I can only thank Churchill Support Services enough for taking the stress off my shoulders. Well done, keep up the good work.”
Businesses frequently turn to private security to provide responsive and dedicated protection. No business wants to become a victim of crime; it damages your businesses finances and reputation, as well as putting employees at risk. Deploying a strong security presence on your site can act as a powerful visual deterrent against crimes such as theft, vandalism, or sabotage.
Whilst security guards do not have the same powers as police officers, they are authorised to perform a ‘citizen’s arrest’ if safe and reason to do so, such as witnessing a crime, protecting others or preventing damage whilst the police arrive.
All security guards must hold an SIA licence to carry out ‘licensable’ activities. We also offer a range of online training courses to all our employees, covering first-aid and health and safety, and so can deploy officers with specific training if required.
If you’re considering a career as a security officer, you’ll need to complete the necessary training to obtain an SIA licence. If you have a licence and are looking for employment, check out Churchill Support Services job vacancies.
CCTV systems can usually be installed within a couple of hours, on the same day. This ensures you can benefit from quality CCTV, without disruption to your business. We can also offer a thorough assessment of your property to create the best installation strategy for you.
Security guards are trained to carry out a number of duties, ensuring they’re always prepared for all eventualities, including:
Monitoring your gatehouse/reception to control access
Regularly patrolling your property and site to provide mobile security
Examining your CCTV system to detect and respond to intruders
Diffusing unwanted situations before they can escalate
Providing additional services such as managing logbooks, post, telephone calls or greeting visitors
At Churchill Support Services, we try to be as flexible and responsive as possible. Whilst it’s best to plan your security needs well in advance, we’ll always try our best to provide the security you need within a short time frame.
