This week saw the Queen pay a special visit to London’s West India Dock to board the HMS Sutherland to mark 20 years since the warship was first commissioned.
Anyone who has been a loyal follower of Queen Elizabeth II will know that The Royal Navy has played a huge role in her life.
In addition to being a Naval wife, she has also been a Naval mother, daughter, and granddaughter.
The challenges in securing heavily armed ships, often with helicopters and a large workforce, are huge.
SRS has been securing operational Navy ships since 2013, and are experts in mobilising at short-notice and at speed in order to provide the necessary reliable and trusted security for these high-profile ships.
In addition, being docked in London makes the security job more sensitive.
SRS carries out a program of up-to-date scenario based training to simulate real-life security breaches.
Recently these have included new training relating to:
- intruders on site
Investing in our guards with this training is imperative to ensure we minimise any potential threat and provide the fully bespoke security support that all of our clients expect.
Krav Maga is an effective, modern, and dynamic self-defense and fighting system. It is designed to be practical and intuitive for people of any age, shape, or size.
Each new guard receives Krav Maga Training when they join us. They then receive regular follow up Krav Maga training every two to three months.
Unlike many other self defence systems, our training covers more than just fighting. The techniques expand on your natural instincts to develop skills quickly and effectively, while enabling you to address attacks under any scenario.
There are just over 32,000 Police Officers in London and only approximately 10% are armed officers.
It is currently illegal for any security guards in the UK to be in possession of a weapon. However, the Guard Dogs Act of 1975 provides for the use of dogs to guard a property, provided the dog is under the control of a handler.
SRS is proud to be working with one of the UKs largest private hire coach companies.
City Circle provides top-quality coach services to the leisure, corporate and tourism markets. They have recently relocated their Headquarters to Hayes, West London. The new premises will also house their fleet of top-end private coaches.
Based on an Industrial Estate, Security Risk Specialists will provide 24 hour security support, 7 days a week. Security will include the latest CCTV installation as well as around the clock guarding.
Managing hotel security is a balancing act. A visible security presence provides guests with reassurance that both they, and their possessions, are safe during their stay. On the other hand, guests want to relax and enjoy their stay and not be made to feel nervous or oppressed by the security measures in place.
Security in hotels, particularly in the UKs capital and major cities, has recently come under scrutiny after a spate of terror attacks and threats.

Why Brexit could be damaging for our security industry…
Pre-Brexit British citizens could move easily to another EU country and citizens of EU countries equally free to move to the UK and according to the 2014 Labour Force Survey, 79% of the 1.73 million EU nationals living in the UK were in employment.
The UK was rocked by the seismic decision to leave the EU with many facing economic uncertainty as a result and whilst there has been no immediate impact the next few years will reveal the real outcome of the referendum result.
At 11pm one Saturday night just before Christmas we received a panicky phone call from the owner of a media agency based in Islington. His office had just been broken into for the second time in a matter of days.
The first burglary had also taken place at night. A gang of thieves on mopeds had gained entry by using hammers to smash one of the office’s huge glass windows. They vandalized the office before making off with around 12 Mac computers. These were loaded into a car parked discreetly around the corner by one of their accomplices before they fled on their mopeds.
