The major cable distribution facility at Northwood, North London has suffered constant cable theft issues since August 2009. Vital Security Solutions were bought in to address the problem.
The security teams are all SIA licenced guards and work on a staggered rota with constantly changing shift patterns to eliminate possible uniformity and maintain the element of surprise. The teams patrol the depot boundary and inspect all possible entry points as well as carrying out random vehicle spot checks.
The primary scope included:
- SIA Operatives
- Staggered Security Shifts
- Full Security Management
