Here at Stok K9 Security Services, we pride ourselves on aiming to raise industry standards. We have a solid security dog handler team in place to ensure we can fulfil even the most demanding enquiry. Stok K9 Security Services canine teams operate in line with the Guard Dogs Act 1975 and The Dangerous Dog Act 1991, which allows us to use dogs to guard a customer’s property, provided dogs are under control and that appropriate warning signs are erected and visible at site entrances. Stok K9 Security Services undertakes site surveys to identify where appropriate signage is required and arranges for the provision of that signage, to ensure its security operations comply with the requirements of all relevant Acts.
All security dogs and security dog handlers, deployed by Stok K9 Security Services, are highly trained and routinely assessed. Training conforms to British Standards 8517-1, the UK’s highest standard for dog and handler training. The training provided to dogs and their handlers is also recognised by and meets to standards of the follows professional standards institutions:
- National Association of Security Dog Users (NASDU)
- National Training Inspectorate for Professional Dog Users (NTIPDU)
- British Institute for Professional Dog Trainers (BIPDT)
Only security dogs and security dog handlers meeting the above training standards will be deployed by Stok K9 Security Services, ensuring customers are provided with the highest possible service standards, with the lowest risk of service ‘error’ (e.g. dog becoming uncontrollable and potentially dangerous).
Hotel CCTV Systems
We work with the cutting edge technology from industry leading suppliers to provide you with an effective Remote CCTV services monitoring solution that is also cost-efficient. Your hotel CCTV system is connected via the Internet to a secure monitoring station, sending images from your CCTV cameras directly to our security personnel. The footage can be monitored 24/7 or during selected hours, often outside of normal business hours or when the property will be empty. Our smart security hotel CCTV systems inform security personnel in the event of an alarm being activated. To provide the best view possible, cameras are then re-aligned, zoomed or an alternative viewpoint is selected.
Using our state of the art software we draw digital barriers in and around your chosen areas which trigger immediate alerts to our control room. Each business is supplied with a 24 hour monitoring station for personal use at your perusal. Our professional security personnel then manually monitor the CCTV footage, looking at recent footage as well as live footage to properly assess the situation.
If a risk is identified by our Remote Monitoring centre, we react to manage the situation by either:
- Communicating directly with the intruders via an inbuilt tannoy system
- We can inform you if required
- We contact the emergency services
- Dispatch our 24 hour response team
Normally, intruders are deterred by the tannoy system and the knowledge that they have been detected, but in the event that they aren’t, our team is in a position to ensure the emergency services can act accordingly to resolve the incident. Our Remotely Monitored CCTV services act as an active deterrent, allowing immediate action to be taken, preventing or reducing damage or loss of property. CCTV footage that isn’t remotely monitored can provide you with evidence after damage has been done, but a monitored hotel CCTV system can help prevent it entirely.
Manned Guarding for Hotels
Our SIA licensed officers are screened and vetted in accordance with BS7858. We provide uniformed staff to secure your premises, assets or to ensure the safety of the attendees of an event and your staff and minimising antisocial behaviour. Our security guards are extremely professional as we carry out a thorough recruiting process to make sure we offer first-class manned guarding for hotels. Stok K9 Security Services undertakes site surveys to identify where appropriate signage is required and arranges for the provision of that signage, to ensure its security operations comply with the requirements of all relevant Acts.
All Stok K9-deployed personnel conform to the BS7858 certified security vetting standard. BS7858 is the background screening (vetting) of individuals employed in an environment where the security and safety of people, goods or property is a requirement of the employing organisation’s operations and/or where such security screening is in the public and/or corporate interest. By operating to the British manned guarding for hotels standard, Stok K9 Security Services aims to ensure people of the highest integrity operate on customer sites. Every Stok K9 Security Services worker holds a valid Security Industry Authority (SIA) Manned Guarding front-line licence, so fully complies with the SIA’s licencing requirements.
