Direct Security in Support at Huge Squatter Removal in London
10th January 2020
Yesterday, Direct Security Solutions supported a huge squatter removal in South East London. We were there to remove over 50 activists that had illegally occupied the property over the last two years as part of a ‘Save the Trees’ protest.
We assisted our sister company DCBL by providing a number of our highly-trained security officers, whilst also working closely with the Met Police with what was an extremely challenging eviction.
The operation went well, after months of planning to effectively remove the huge number of squatters that had been living on the property.
Direct Security provides manned guards at a wide range of different assignments all over the UK including warehouse/logistics sites, sports venues, at-risk (fire) residential buildings and front of house/concierge reception areas.
All of our manned guarding assignments are supported by Trackforce software providing our 24/7 control room personnel with real-time visibility of our guard’s on-site activity.
This enables us to ensure guards perform their tasks following their instructions and provides a digital record of all patrols and related activity.
We offer a range of services including waking watch, intruder detection, keyholding, residential security, mobile patrols & property protection.
