Regent Security

Regent on way to Security Sector Top 10

Coventry-based Regent Security has shot up into the top 11% providers in the UK for security services.

The news comes in the latest scoring round in the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) assessment of its members by the Security Industry Authority (SIA), the governing body of the UK's security industry.

Continual improvement is central to the scheme which is underpinned by a progressive quality standard, says Regent Security training & HR support manager Allan Foster.

“Individual contractors can use their score to track and measure progress against the ACS standard as well as compare their overall performance to that of other approved contractors,” says Allan.

“We have been scored 97 points against a target of 75 points for this year, which in effect pushes Regent Security up in to the top 11% UK security service providers.”

Each year, all member companies of the SIA approved contractor scheme are independently assessed against the standards of the scheme. All approved SIA contractors but for those on certain Passport schemes assesses its performance against 89 individual indicators of achievement.

At assessment, these scores are verified by an independent assessor interviewing staff and clients, looking at company systems both internally and on site, and evaluating all disciplines the company provides such as key holding, manned guarding, CCTV and more.

“The majority of the increase in scores this year comes from the work we have done in relation to people, such as appraisals, training and the environment, and we’re naturally delighted with the outcome,” says Allan Foster.
