The Security Industry Authority is an independent body responsible for regulating the private security industry. The SIA oversees the compulsory licensing of individuals working in the private security industry to ensure that private security operatives are ‘fit and proper’ persons who are properly trained and qualified.
At TrustOn we employ vigorous vetting procedures and ensure that all staff working in the company have the appropriate SIA licenses for carrying out their work. All of our front-line officers have to meet tough criteria; not only do they have to pass identity and criminal checks, they also have to show evidence of their range of skills, knowledge and experience.
ISO International Standards ensure that services are safe, reliable and of good quality. At TrustOn we know that the maintenance of rigorous standards is vital in ensuring we provide our clients with a robust security service.
Just one of our processes which is fully accredited to ISO standards is our automated control desk which allows us to provide a better service to our customers as well as react to unforeseen events, 24/7.
