Security Guards / Guarding

Static Security Guards & Manned Guarding

At Foremost Security we can provide you with static manned guarding, gatehouse and concierge services throughout Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

We have over 20 years of experience in providing security and manned guarding services, so you’ll be in good hands.

What is ‘guarding’?

Guarding involves a trained uniformed Static Security Guard being stationed at your business. At Foremost we offer short term and long-term contracts, so you can have a guard 24 hours per day, 7 days a week for the whole year, or you can have a guard for a few hours a week.

By having a guard stationed at your business it means someone is there to respond immediately and deter potential threats. This will allow your employees to work alone or at night with the knowledge there is security there to keep them safe and give you peace of mind. The licensed guards are fully trained to BTEC levels in all aspects of security and also have NVQ qualifications in security provision.
