A Credible Company
Island Security Ltd security services are designed and executed to a very professional standard within the industry guidelines. We operate within SIA guidelines and concentrate on the vetting procedures of our staff to ensure every effort is made to recruit the correct quality of labour operating in the market place and pay them the best possible rates available. This has the effect of keeping labour turn-over to a minimum and consequently delivering a consistent service 24 hours a day seven days a week.
In 2005 our industry is undergoing major change with the introduction of licensing. All of our staff have to obtain a license to operate as a security officer in the United Kingdom. Our organisation fully endorses this statute which is long overdue.
The objectives of the Private Security Act are to ensure that the service provided is by qualified (trained) individuals that are honest and trustworthy to guard your most valued assets around the clock, thus removing the unprofessional element of those unscrupulous companies still operating in our industry by enforcement rather than relying on good practise by those already in the industry.
Our organisation will also actively accord registration on the authorised suppliers list as part of the SIA scheme.
