At Charter Security, we understand the concerns business owners have about the security of their buildings during evenings, weekends and other out of hour's periods.

That's why we've developed a professional keyholding service in accordance with the requirements of BS7984:2008 Keyholding and Response Services - Code of Practice and the Policy of the Association of Chief Police Officers. This policy recommends that commercial premises have two key holders with telephones, transport and the ability to respond quickly to any incidents.

We'll start by meeting with you at your premises. This will allow us to carefully assess your building and agree appropriate entry procedures for our keyholding officers who are all SIA licensed and fully trained in incident management.

We'll then collect your keys and issue you with a receipt. Your keys will be coded and sealed within our secure control room. If an incident does arise, we'll break the seal and access your building in accordance with our agreed arrangement. In doing so, we'll help to remove the worry and inconvenience associated with security alarm activations however they may be caused.
