Security History | Charter Security London & South East

Charter Security was founded in 1980. As a family business it set out to do things differently by offering customers exceptional service built around their requirements and not ours. They also focused on valuing their employees and providing a fair and rewarding workplace. Both of these objectives provided the foundations for success. 

We've since worked with hundreds of clients and have successfully overseen security at a number of prestigious locations including Waterloo Station, Tower Bridge, the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and more recently, the London 2012 Aquatics Centre.

Our long-serving and loyal workforce is supported by quality-assured processes and has access to state-of-the-art technology. Our clients have the peace of mind of knowing that we have a host of highly regarded accreditations, including CHAS, Security Industry Authority Approved Contractors Scheme (SIA ACS)ISO 9001ISO 14001 OHSAS 18001SAFE Contractor, and Link - Up.

In 2014, Charter Security joined forces with Grosvenor Services. Grosvenor Services are themselves a family owned company with operations in Ireland, the UK and USA focussed on facilties management, cleaning and security services. The partnership is a perfect match given the importance both organisations place on traditional family values and putting the customer at the heart of our operations.
