The finalists for the 2021 UK’s Outstanding Security Performance Awards have been announced. Entrants from across the security sector are celebrating their success in the first phase of the judging process.
Between them, the sixteen awards recognise companies, individuals, teams, products and initiatives that have made a significant impact and have demonstrated outstanding performance at the highest level within the sector.
“The OSPAs are growing year on year and really have become the ultimate accolade for everyone working in security, whether a buyer or supplier” says founder of the OSPAs, Professor Martin Gill. “I would like to thank everyone who entered for making this a bumper year. With such stiff competition, I can honestly say that every finalist is a winner.”
During these difficult times with the ongoing pandemic, vacant property security has become more critical than ever before. Thankfully, at SGC Security Services, our team has years of extensive experience providing cost-effective and reliable void property security solutions.
We pride ourselves on utilising the latest market-leading technology to proactively meet any security requirements, and when it comes to void properties, businesses are increasingly in need of new and innovative security software and technology.
Although CCTV systems and video verification technology can bring a wealth of security benefits to your business, our RSI wireless camera systems can be a highly-effective alternative solution. Continue reading “How Our RSI Camera System Can Protect Your Void Property”read more
Owner of SGC Security Services, Paul Macarthur, posted on the topic of vehicle and assets theft. Highlighting a recent story on criminal gangs carrying out daredevil raids on lorries at high speeds.
It seems as though this time of year has seen an increasing amount for delivery firms targeted by thieves, who become more bold in their attempts to steal high value goods. Continue reading “Delivery firms increasingly at risk of vehicle and assets theft”read more
Well done to the SGC Security Services team at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust presenting a cheque to the children’s ward to enable the children to have a better Christmas. The funds are being used to purchase a new Ipad so that they can see and speak with their parents throughout Christmas and beyond.
When the first lockdown hit the UK, many businesses in the hospitality sector were forced to close their doors, with no real idea as to when they could open them back up again. While government support schemes have helped many within the industry pay their bills, this could only go so far.
With the furlough scheme set to end in March, it’s likely that a fair amount of businesses within the sector will be faced with having to cut jobs and even close their doors for the last time. However, the last few weeks have seen the beginnings of light at the end of the tunnel. As after the second lockdown passed, businesses in the hospitality industry are once again able to open their doors and welcome staff and customers.
Even though we are technically out of full lockdown though, and the rules have been somewhat relaxed in certain areas, it is not as simple as opening the doors and letting customers walk in. It’s still hugely important during this time to maintain strong crowd control security parameters. Continue reading “Crowd Control Security is More Important Than Ever”read more

A few days ago, at 13:00 in the afternoon, one of our clients’ void properties was broken into…
Unfortunately, this has been an all too common occurrence during the Covid-19 national lockdowns. The first lockdown suffered from a surge in break-ins at commercial sites, and many more businesses have been left vulnerable over the last couple of months too.
Criminals have been targeting any shops, pubs and other commercial premises that have been left vacant and without adequate security. Sites that have been left unoccupied for an indefinite period have needed the right kind of vacant property security in place – now more than ever. Continue reading “Recent Void Property Break-in Foiled Thanks to Video Verification System”read more
The student lifestyle is in full swing, with September behind us and universities remaining open throughout the second national lockdown. However, unfortunately there’s another side to student life that isn’t so great, and this is because many students are prime targets when it comes to crime. With statistics showing that nearly a third of all students in the UK fall victim to crime while they’re at university.
Making sure students are protected and safe comes down to more than just ensuring their smart phones and laptops don’t get stolen. It’s about providing a stronger sense of security and support to students for things like stress. Experienced security guards who are trained to protect students and provide student accommodation security, can be critical in helping students to receive the care they need to fulfil their potential.read more
