Physical Security

Professional, highly-trained security personnel are the first line of defence and very often provide a visible deterrent that stamps out a protected site as a target that is safeguarded against criminals, intruders and trespassers.

Whether you have a specific security threat, wish to guard against potential breaches, or need the assurance of having accredited staff on-site during hours of higher-risk operations, the Cerberus team delivers.

Mobile Patrols

A popular service to maintain the security of locations out of hours, and during periods of closure with highly visible vehicles and guards to inspect your premises regularly. Variable patrol patterns deliver comprehensive coverage of your site, both preventing and mitigating your most crucial risk factors. Read more about our mobile patrol services. 

Open, and Lock-up Services

Ideal for large organisations, sites with multiple properties and high-value retail premises, an open and lock-up service ensures that your property is opened and closed safely. This includes following alarm protocols, protecting personnel, and guaranteeing the security of your premises during those more vulnerable activities.

Keyholding Services

Rapid responses from trained officers to manage alarm activations, intrusions and remote sensor alarms. Keyholding prevents staff from dealing with potentially dangerous situations, as well as providing the convenience of quickly resolving false activations outside of regular operating hours.

Construction Site Access Control

Full management of site access for construction sites, protecting your workforce, equipment, tools, materials and machinery from theft and criminal damage. Access can be controlled by stationary guards, turnstiles, biometric passes and keycard readers to ensure only authorised visitors can access your site.
