"We approached Region Security Guarding with an urgent need for security at a large site in Pineham, Northamptonshire. They provided us with a quotation within the hour and managed to resource a security guard for the following day. The security guard worked on the site for a two-month period and was punctual, reliable, and professional throughout. Any queries or requests that we had throughout this period, were actioned promptly by the Region Security manager. We would definitely recommend using Region Security, as they provided an excellent service for a reasonable price."


“A professional and reliable service. Always easy to contact and has never let us down with cover. No hesitation in recommending and competitively priced also. After using an unreliable costly company for several years it is a pleasure to do business with Region Security. Thank you Namrita and team!”

“Fantastic service, really could not have asked for more from them.”


"Due to increase in shoplifting the company supplied us with security guards. They proved to be very good and managed to catch many shoplifters. In fact some of them were our regular customers. In a few months our takings and profit has gone up. I would recommend Region Security Guarding anytime."

We're Proud To Work With:

Retail Security Guards

Our retail security guards are expertly trained to safeguard and protect your site using multiple methods. One of our primary strategies for retail security is the placement of security guards alongside your floor staff, which acts as a deterrent to possible thieves and a swift response in the event of a security threat.

Additionally, our retail security services include our guards surveying your establishment through vigilant CCTV monitoring and regular premises patrols. This allows our guards to keep a keen eye out for any suspicious activity and stay ahead of the curve, where possible.

When we provide our retail security to clients, our security guards will operate either in your storefront or from an on-site surveillance room, depending on the duty they’ve been tasked with. For added reassurance on your end, we also offer keyholding and alarm response services, so that our guards can respond to any site disturbances promptly and safely.

How Can Retail Security Help Me?

Retail security helps to improve loss prevention and security threats in establishments. Having uniformed security personnel and visible security measures – such as surveillance – can provide a visual deterrent to potential criminals.

By making sure that your site is appropriately covered and safeguarded, you can put your mind at ease knowing that security threats are mitigated.

With retail security officers working across sites nationwide, we will be able to take immediate action to stop any incidents as and when you require it.

Retail Security Customer Service

Retail security officers provide more than just helping to keep your store safe and stock on the shelves. They also provide a friendly face and a greeting to your customers.

What Stores Can You Offer Security For?

We have a wide range of clients that we have provided shop security services for. This includes:

Jewellery stores – Selling highly valuable merchandise makes Jewellery stores a prime target for theft. Our security guards can deter theft, monitor customer activity, and respond to any suspicious behaviour or incidents.

Electronic Stores – High-end electronics such as smartphones, laptops, and gaming consoles face a higher risk of theft. Our security guard will provide a strong visual deterrent for your store.

Department stores – Large department stores have a high volume of foot traffic, multiple entrances, and multiple floors. Retail security guards are essential to monitor large floor spaces with regular patrols.

Supermarkets – By helping to monitor entrances and exits, retail security can help to prevent shoplifters and provide a sense of safety for staff and customers.

What Areas Do We Cover?

At Region security guarding, we provide retail security services both locally and nationwide. Whilst we may be based in the West Midlands, we cover the entirety of the UK.

We know how important it is to have the right security solution no matter where you are or what type of retail store you own.

How Do You Identify Retail Theft?

There are many small signs that a person might display before they are about to shoplift. However, please remember that just because someone displays these behaviours, does not automatically mean they are a thief.


  • Anxious behaviours, including fidgeting and acting shifty.
  • Avoiding line of sight with staff or customers.
  • Leaving the store without making any purchases.
  • Wearing large clothing/coats or bringing large bags – especially in Summer months.
  • Aversion to eye contact – especially with staff.
  • Paying very close attention to staff locations.
