What was the security risk?

This case study is a good example of our retail security guards.

Retail establishments encounter many security challenges and threats. These include fraud, theft, cyber threats, and property damage like vandalism. However, one of the biggest dangers they face is the occurrence of shoplifting.

Shoplifting is a significant hurdle for countless retailers nationwide. Many stores face incidents of theft on a daily basis. These incidents can vary from internal employee theft to armed robberies. Criminals target retail outlets to steal goods for resale, while others seek to make off with a store’s cash earnings.

Bristol Sweet Mart was looking for some additional security coverage for their store. They quickly got in touch with us. We supplied them with a security solution that suited their business requirements.

How did we help them?

We started working with Bristol Sweet Mart at the end of January 2024. We provided them with SIA-licenced retail security officers.

Our guards will have many duties protecting Bristol Sweet Mart. But their main one is deterring burglars. One way our guards will do this is by conducting regular patrols around the store. Whilst our guards are patrolling, they look out for shoplifters and get a better understanding of the store’s safety. We ensure all of our retail guards can handle any type of security situation. We also make sure that they are fully trained to detect all signs of shoplifters.

Another way our security guards stop burglars is through their strong security presence. Our guards’ mere presence supplies Bristol Sweet Mart with a strong visual deterrent. This presence can be used to suggest to shoplifters that the store has good security in place. Thus, scaring them away.

We initially provided Bristol Sweet Mart with a short-term security contract. But this has now been extended and is currently ongoing.

"The security has been fantastic overall. Guard is an absolute superstar and please pass on our thanks. I have been very impressed and we would like to use Region if we have any holidays to cover in the future."


"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."

"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."
