Highly trusted security services

According to the British Chambers of Commerce, crime costs UK businesses £19 billion a year – and we don’t want to be part of those statistics. We’ll never relax.

When it comes to protecting people, buildings and assets, our clients know that they’re in the safest possible hands with 14forty.

Robust security systems give peace of mind

There are two very different sides to security. One is the friendly 'meet and greet' approach you need during the daytime at reception, and the ability to deal with day-to-day issues. The other is the physical protection, sophisticated surveillance and alarm response needed to spot potential threats and resolve them fast. 

That means different officers with different styles, training and approaches for different times of the day. And it takes an effective mix of manned guarding, mobile response and security systems.

We provide the perfect solutions in a comprehensive and cost-effective way that harnesses the power of technology. Each plays its part in mitigating risk – a physical presence as a deterrent, cross referencing data from CCTV and alarm systems to pre-empt a security breach. Using remote or mobile monitoring to improve efficiency without increasing the level of any threat.

A wide range of security services

It all begins with gaining a clear understanding of our client’s business – including an audit and risk evaluation of every single aspect that could affect security. We also look at the external environment, local demographics and historical data.

Now we get accurate, real time data on every activity so we can measure security service performance. More importantly, our client partners gain peace of mind with safer working environments for their people and visitors.

Complete trust in manned guarding

There are times when 14forty security officers are the public face. Representing us on the front line. In close and direct contact with clients, people and other visitors. Our security teams strive to perform to the highest standards, providing our clients with complete trust in their judgement and decision making.

With 14forty, it all starts with the rigorous screening of potential officers – using a technology-based vetting programme that we offer commercially to businesses.

Our security services training programme is just as rigorous – not only on the technical and systems side but in the right behaviour’s officers need for positive and effective interaction with people. And it goes much further, with a programme of qualifications to develop transferable skills for their future careers.

We offer effective security systems and technology that supports officers to perform efficiently and safely. Whether they’re working as part of a mobile service or dedicated to a particular site, all of our 14forty officers are monitored through a control centre.

Mobile security services for rapid response

Clients can rest assured in the comfort of knowing that 14forty mobile patrol are never more than a short distance away, day or night. As well as being a powerful visible deterrent, our vigilant officers respond rapidly to deal with any serious issues – whether it’s security, fire, flood or other damage.

We also take care of key holding, empty property checks and meter readings, providing a cost effective and technical solution that provides controlled access to buildings.

Our partners appreciate the ability to monitor what’s going on at any time, as well as looking back at past activity. That’s down to the security services as well as the smart processes and transparent reporting that we use.

The investment made in PDAs, for example, means that security officers can save time and work a lot more efficiently. They use PDAs for everything from checking into and out of shifts to tracking daily routes and tasks, radio tag scanning, and instantly communicating threats or incidents. All this information is instantly uploaded to a reporting system enabling our clients to view it in real time.

Protected by the best security systems

Our clients know that with 14forty, they are in the safe hands of people who understand leading edge security systems technology inside out and know how to put it together seamlessly.

Our integrated systems can include access control, intruder detection and alarms, CCTV with video analytics and ANPR, and remote 24 hour monitoring. We’re protected 24/7 – and every second of every day.
