Security for retail and shopping centre environments covered by Senator Security from their offices in the South East, Wales and the Midlands – Manned Guarding, Uniformed Security Guards, Public Space Surveillance – PSS, Remote Security Monitoring, CCTV, Key Holding and Mobile Security Patrols. Senator also provided value added services to become an integrated part of the day-to-day operational team.

Additionally, Senator also manages the car parks at retail locations and provides ‘Front-of-House’ and Information Desk services – therefore providing a visible security presence for visitors and staff on site.
Many threats face the shopping centres and retail parks; terrorism, gang violence, riot, arson and natural disaster – one such threat that is ever present in modern times is terrorism and a key to successful anti-terrorism operation is the effectiveness of the Centres’ communications operation and whether the security teams are intrinsically involved as the additional ‘eyes and ears on the ground’ to provide early warning and/or prevent any potential ‘flash points’ and identify suspicious behaviour that may lead to such an occurrence. There is certainly a place for well-managed CCTV, remote monitoring and coordinated alarm response but there remains the real need for the experience and intuition of a manned guarding presence. The “Operation Fairway” initiative details how the effective communication within a centre can prevent a potential terrorist situation and then also demonstrates the negatives of a poor complacent team with catastrophic consequences. This clearly demonstrates how crucial it is to involve everyone in the Centres/Retail Parks security operation with everyone knowing his or her defined roles and responsibilities.
