Security Services


Barton Security provides uniformed or plain clothed personnel to the commercial and industrial sectors.

  • Permanent Guarding

The role of the security guard has changed significantly recently, involving increasing responsibilities and the use of high technology. All our personnel should not only be able to take control of any situation in a calm, confident manner, but should be seen to be doing so. By using appropriate behaviour, the security guard becomes more effective and in doing so, a better service for the client is provided.

We supply personnel for:-

  • Gatehouse Duties
  • Crowd Control
  • Reception Duties
  • Special Events
  • Front of House Guarding
  • Sporting Events
  • Building Patrols
  • Concerts
  • CCTV Monitoring
  • Conferences

  • Access Control Administration and Management
  • Stewarding
  • Refurbishment Programmes
  • Exhibitions
  • Vehicle and Personnel Searches
  • Car Park Control

The main objectives of security guards are:-

  • The protection of life
  • The protection of property and premises
  • The prevention of loss and waste
  • The prevention and deterring of crime

The Private Security Industry Act came into being on 11 May 2001 and states that those working within it need to be licensed to operate. The SIA – Security Industry Authority - regulates the industry and it is now illegal to work as a security officer without an SIA licence. This applies to contract staff only.

Barton Security is accredited to ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and undergoes a full and thorough inspection annually as well as independent unannounced inspections by other organisations.
