Devon SIA Security Company

Patronus Security UK Ltd currently holds SIA Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) status for the provision of Security Guarding Services.

Static Guards

We have extensive experience of working on construction sites, solar farms and wind farms, all of which are an increasingly common sight here in the south west. Services we offer range from gate duties, site locking/unlocking and site patrols to security risk assessments and consultancy. Our static guards are familiar with and understand the nature and requirements of such assignments and are available for round the clock guarding of your assets and valuables. Among our clients are major UK construction companies as well as local government.

Mobile Security

When it isn’t practical or financially viable to contract in a static guard, a mobile patrol may well be the answer. Our liveried security vehicles are a highly effective visual deterrent to unwanted visitors to your business, property or land. Our patrols operate 24/7, 365 days a year with guards completing security logs for your peace of mind. Our mobile patrols also provide a lock/unlocking service for your site when it isn’t convenient for you or your staff to do so. Our clients include local city councils, business parks and industrial estates.

Key Holding Services

Let us take the stress out of responding to those middle of the night alarm call outs by allowing us to hold your keys. Our guard will be on site within 30 minutes to re-set a false alarm, log events and update you during more sociable hours. Where there has been a genuine intruder our guard will remain on site and patrol until Police officers attend the scene. A full log will be provided.

Rural Crime Security

Devon has more than its fair share of farmland and small holdings and therefore more than its fair share of rural crime. Diesel, vehicles, tools and machinery are the most common targets for thieves. We can offer everything from mobile patrols, CCTV, security lights and ‘smart’ padlocks to simple security signage.

Vacant Property Inspections

We can keep an eye on your vacant property when you’re not able to.  Whether it’s a vacant private dwelling or an empty retail space, empty buildings attract unwanted attention and visitors.  Our staff will attend your property as often as required, inspect the property inside and out and provide a report.  We can also give access for workmen and contractors and take meter readings if necessary.
