Manned Guarding Security

Access control by fully uniformed Security Officers

All of our Manned Guarding Officers are fully screened in accordance with industry standards to include BS7858. Allied are proud to have been one of the first security companies to achieve approved status with the SIA.


Following the initial SIA Approved License Induction Training, our Officers receive further specific vocational training to meet the needs of individual assignments. In addition to this, Allied ensure that Officers are trained in First Aid and many other specialist areas where required to meet the specification of each assignment.

Our Security Officers are highly visible, uniformed professionals whose presence serves many functions, which can include:


  • Being a highly visible deterrent against crime

  • Reassurance for your employees

  • Health & Safety support

  • Maintenance checks

  • First Aid

  • Access/Egress control

  • Personnel and Vehicular searching

  • Patrolling

  • Locking and Unlocking

  • Assignment specific roles 


Although our Static Security Officers work under the direction of our structured management team, we encourage them to interact with the client’s on-site team so as to provide a bespoke, personalised service.

What is Manned Guarding?

The term manned guarding essentially pertains to the security guards who are responsible for ensuring the safety and protection of various entities. These security personnel are physically present at the designated locations and their activities are regulated and supervised by a government department.

Their primary role involves safeguarding properties, individuals, valuable assets, and more from potential threats such as unauthorised entry, physical assault, theft, or any form of criminal damage.

What do Manned Guards do?

The deployment of a manned security guard is contingent upon the specific needs and preferences of our client(s). These security guards are typically dressed in uniforms and are entrusted with the task of safeguarding a particular property.

By maintaining a conspicuous presence, they serve as a strong deterrent, effectively deterring any criminal or inappropriate activities from taking place within the premises. Their proactive approach ensures that potential threats are identified and prevented, thereby maintaining a secure environment.

Manned security guards play a crucial role in protecting various assets by providing a physical and visible security presence. Their responsibilities are tailored to meet the specific requirements of our clients.

Our dedicated professionals act as a shield, ensuring the safety and security of designated properties. By actively deterring potential wrongdoers, they create an environment that discourages criminal activities and promotes a sense of safety and peace of mind for both individuals and assets under our protection.

Access Control by Manned Guards

Utilising manned guarding security measures is crucial for maintaining the safety and security of individuals, buildings, and valuables. These security methods include the deployment of static officers, regular patrols, alarm systems, and security cameras.

By employing state-of-the-art security systems, security guards can perform their duties at the highest level possible, ensuring a proactive approach to preventing security breaches.

The presence of licensed manned guarding officers is a visible and effective deterrent against potential threats. This security measure is widely adopted across various industries worldwide, with security officers stationed in diverse environments such as shopping centres, manufacturing sites, stadiums, government buildings, warehouses, void properties, and private residences.

Their role is to safeguard the premises, assets, and individuals within their jurisdiction, providing a sense of security and peace of mind.

While manned security guards are distinct from law enforcement personnel, they play a crucial role in protecting their clients' interests. In the event of criminal activities, security guards are trained to respond swiftly and effectively, alerting the appropriate authorities as necessary.

Their primary responsibility is to ensure the safety and security of the designated property or assets, demonstrating a commitment to maintaining a secure environment for all stakeholders involved.
