Case Studies

Active Luton

Riverbank Primary School is an Active Education Trust Free School for children aged 4-11, situated in the Biscot Ward of Luton. Our safeguarding team has worked with the School for over 2 years in securing the premises hence allowing a safe learning environment. Our team locks and unlocks the site at the times requested by the client and conducts extensive safety checks to ensure the property is safe and secure.

Our Process

Step 1

We begin by determining the extent and type of service that you require. Our team can securely retain the keys to your premises and respond to alarm activations, or allow supervised access to emergency services if needed.

Step 2

Our team works alongside you to outline a clear protocol that will be used to guide the response to alarms. In the event of an alarm, our guards remain on-site to liaise with authorities and resolve the situation.

Step 3

After a recorded incident, our Incident Manager works quickly and thoroughly to produce an accurate report and make it available to you within 24 hours. We then discuss the key learnings.
