Guarding Functions

i. Sentries (Stationary Guards) A sentry is a guard assigned to guard over or protects a specific post or location. These posts normally include visitor access points, watch towers, etc. Often the function of a Sentry will include access control.

ii. Access Control To assist our personnel in delivering an effective service to our clients, we make use of a combination of Access Control Registers, Visitors Registers, Vehicle Identification Stickers, Sleeping Passes, Workers/Domestic Identification Cards, etc. to ensure that only authorized persons enter the premises under our control.

iii. Patrolling Guards We utilize an on-line MagTouch system in conjunction with all patrolling guards to ensure that an effective service is  delivered to our client. Check points are setup that must be visited by our patrolling officer. These points must be visited either in specific sequence or randomly, as requested by our client. On request we can supply the client with a printout of the patrols completed, detailing the points visited, dates and times.

Long Term Contracts The bulk of our services is based on long term guarding contracts to Industrial as well as Residential clients, supported and backed up by our Supervisory and Armed Reaction Teams.

Special Events may vary between supplying a single “Car Guard” for a function one evening at your house, to deploying a full Protection Detail with SRT (Special Response Team) backup for a couple of weeks who we have on permanent standby; a group of highly trained, highly skilled operatives ready to react to an emergency situation, should it be required.



We offer all standard technical security installations and maintenance on alarm systems, electric fencing, gate motors and CCTV installations. We also do short-term vehicle and asset tracking, surveillance, counter-surveillance and de-bugging.
