Exeter sits on the River Exe, about 37 miles northeast of Plymouth, and 70 miles southwest of Bristol. With a population of around 118,000, it’s a bustling vibrant city. Exeter is served by two major railway stations, Exeter St David’s and Exeter Central, an international airport and the M5 motorway so we also have our fair share of visitors too, so as you can imagine Patronus is kept very busy looking after and serving such a popular city!

Exeter city centre, as well as being the original home of Patronus Security HQ, is also the hub of the city with numerous national chain stores (John Lewis, Debenhams, Next etc) as well as smaller independent shops and boutiques, in fact Exeter has been identified among the top ten most profitable locations for a business to be based and in June 2004 was granted Fairtrade City status.

Patronus are specialists in retail security and serve many of the businesses in and around the city centre. Our guards are not only a visual deterrent to potential shop lifters, but also an effective tool in monitoring the loss and control of stock.

The University of Exeter also sits in the heart of the city and a population of around 18,000 young brain boxes. Students, naturally gravitate toward the many clubs and bars scattered around the place, giving Exeter a healthy, buzzing nightlife especially in term time. The marine camp nearby at Lympstone also provides a few thirsty customers. Overseeing and looking after the happy revellers are our friendly, diligent door supervisors.

Our fully trained and SIA licensed door men and door women are ever present guardians of our local pubs and clubs, ensuring a safe and trouble-free night out.   They also provide a comforting safe presence at the annual Christmas Light Switch On in the city centre.
