Hotel Security

Hotels often have a large amount of different people entering their premises and using the services within their establishment. This makes it difficult for the hotel’s staff to keep an eye out for anyone who may look suspicious, be committing any sort of trouble or crime or be vandalising the property.

Hotel guests and employees’ personal belongings or even their well-being can be at risk due to criminal activity or even acts of terror in some circumstances. This is where Hotel Security comes into the picture.

The Top 6 Reasons to Consider Hotel Security Guards include:

  • To prevent or deter people from causing property damage.
  • To stop any crime from being committed in areas that are less populated.
  • To prevent any damages, crimes or trespassing when the hotel is closed.
  • Provide a quick response in the instance of an emergency.
  • To protect both customers and staff members.
  • Monitoring and Maintaining Key Card Access

Crimes Committed in Hotels include:

  • Theft
  • Vandalism
  • Physical/Sexual Assault
  • Rape
  • Drug Dealing
  • Hate Crimes
  • Terrorism
  • General Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Loitering

One of many ways a Hotel Owner can protect their business, staff and customers from any of these threats is by hiring hotel security guards to deter and prevent such behaviour.

Here at Region Security Guarding, we and our guards have years of experience working within the hospitality industry and are available 24/7 to offer manned security guarding and tailored hotel security services throughout the entirety of the United Kingdom. Our Guards are trained and fully SIA Licensed, so that you can count on us to prevent any problematic individuals within your premises.

There can be vandalism issues within specific areas of the hotel as well, such as the public toilets or bar area. This is where having a guard and CCTV in place can really help to minimise the riks to your business.

Hotel Theft

Hotels are almost always accompanied by a car park that surrounds the premises of the building, these parking lots can often fall victim to theft, with employees and customers cars being stolen during their stay at the hotel. Our Security Guards promise to perform internal and external patrols of your sites so that such incidents never take place.

Our punctual, committed and reliable security team will always keep a sharp eye out for any robbery and theft that may take place within the hotels that we patrol.

No matter if your Hotel is a large multi-chain company or a smaller business, Region Security Guarding promises to provide a tailored solution to cater to your security requirements.

CCTV in Hotels

Region’s SIA Licensed Hotel Security Guards will keep a close eye on all access points of your Hotel 24/7 to prevent the entry of any unwanted visitors and can provide additional CCTV monitoring throughout the building, strategically covering any areas that may be prone to suspicious or criminal activity of any sort.

Hotel Room Keys and Locks

Deadbolts and other such locks are crucial to preventing burglary, theft or generally any unwanted visitors that may try and access the hotel rooms of any guests or any rooms they are not supposed to have access to. The most secure kind of key is an electronic one that are re-keyed after every use. No matter what your lock and key solution may be, our guards will always be well-trained and guided on how the keys are distributed and used.

Our Hotel Security Guards can provide solutions such as:

  • Site Patrols
  • Room Checks
  • Access Control
  • Harassment Prevention
  • CCTV Monitoring

A site survey of your hotel will take place, determining and organising with you the specific services that need to be performed in order to keep your business up to standards. Once these services start to be provided to you our supervisors will often visit to ensure that our guards are correctly maintaining and securing your site.

Our officers aim to help by conducting regular patrols of the site, preventing any crimes and checking other risks such as broken windows that may have been broken into, they will also ensure that guests are behaving appropriately and are also keeping their televisions and other appliances at a low volume to prevent noise complaints, monitor alcohol usage within the premises to avert any anti-social behaviour and mention health and safety issues to hotel management.

Guards provided by Region Security Guarding will always treat guests and staff members alike with upmost respect and politeness to ensure your hotel is a friendly and inviting environment for all.
