Ward Security

OverviewSuggest Edit

From a routine property inspection on an empty unit, to the provision of an explosives search dog trained to Home Office standards, to audit assistance on your data compliance issues, we have the resources in-house to ensure both you, and your clients, are protected to the highest possible standards. Ward Security was established in 2000 by security specialists David and Kevin Ward, to fill a niche for a highly professional provider of a range of tailored, integrated and flexible security services to organisations in the Kent area. We still have an office in Kent but we now operate nationwide and employ over 700 people. David and Kevin are still the owners with a hands-on role, but now head up a senior management team which includes a number of long-serving ex-Police officers. We recruit, train and reward the very best staff – complemented by the latest technology and communications – to ensure the highest levels of security and Client service. We sell not on price but quality of service, demonstrated by highly impressive long-term Client retention, frequent recommendations and a wide range of accreditations. That said, our Clients regard us as a cost effective partner who provides excellent value.
