We are an SIA, ACS Pacesetter accredited supplier of security services.
Our reputation and growing portfolio of public and private sector clients have been achieved by providing innovation and excellence.
Despite the increasing trend by clients to choose technology such as CCTV and intruder monitoring systems to keep their property and personnel safe, there is still a need to have ‘boots on the ground’ in the form of a security officer.
Whether it is patrolling on foot, meeting and greeting a visitor to the site, controlling access and egress or providing a visible deterrent, there are numerous assignments where a human presence is required. Not everything can be done ‘remotely’ with technology!

What We Do
Our officers are all licensed with the Security Industry Authority (SIA). To get a licence, our officers have passed a 5-day course, including training in powers of arrest, criminal and civil law, conflict resolution, physical intervention, emergency response and dealing with vulnerable people. Additionally, our guards all receive specialist in-house training in first aid, terrorism awareness (Action Counters Terrorism – ACT) and fire marshalling. You are getting much more than ‘just’ a security guard with Direct Security Solutions.
We provide manned guards at a range of different appointments all over the UK, including warehouse/logistics sites, sports venues, at-risk (fire) residential buildings and front-of-house reception areas.
All our manned guarding assignments are supported by Trackforce software providing our 24/7 control room personnel with real-time visibility of our guards’ on-site activity. This enables us to ensure our guards follow your instructions and provide a digital record of all patrols and related activity.
