ESG Security has been awarded a contract to provide overnight manned guarding to a heritage property in Oxfordshire. The managers of the building have noticed several incidents of suspicious activity in the last few weeks. They suspect that a highly organised criminal organisation has been “casing” the property. The surrounding area is a “hotspot” for burglaries due to its rural location, slow police response and overall vulnerability of the premises. Thieves consider heritage properties to be easy and better to steal from, as they think they will find jewellery, cash and antiques in great quantities. The security officer on-site is also vigilant of trespassers who attempt to commit vandalism and arson.
