Rural Crime: How Keyholding and Alarm Response Can Help.


All of our security officers are specially trained to respond to a multitude of situations in a calm and professional manner.

The start of 2022 saw a sharp rise in rural crime as the cost of living crisis hit the countryside. The first indications from NFU Mutual’s 2022 Rural Crime Report revealed that the first quarter of 2022 saw thieving rates increase by more than 40% than the same period in 2021. The cost of this rural theft was an estimated £40.5m across the UK last year. The majority of their thieving targeted fuel, livestock and kit.

Particularly, well-organised criminals continued to pester farmyards, stealing high-value farm machinery as the cost of agricultural vehicle theft reported to NFU Mutual remained at more than £9m last year. More specifically, theft of Land Rover Defenders cost farmers approximately £2.6M, which is a rise of 87% on the previous year.

 Our keyholding and alarm response services are a reactive domestic and commercial service which provides you with peace of mind that if there were to be an intruder, we deal with it on your behalf. If you need a keyholder at any time, whether that is by day or night, our fully trained and licensed uniformed security officer will attend your premises and ensure your property is safe and secure. They aid in eliminating any potential risks to you or your premises.

Additionally, mobile patrols are another effective solution to protecting your property. Depending on the size and location of your property, there are different ways that our mobile patrol officers can monitor your surroundings. Firstly, our patrols in marked security vehicles create a presence at your business, which can prevent criminals from entering or targeting your property in the first place. This is also a great option for a business that requires multiple locations to be checked. Secondly, our mobile security officers can check your site on foot, allowing them to access areas that vehicles are unable to reach. They still wear a uniform which deters criminals and they can also complete interior patrols if they have keys and access to your property.

All of our security officers are specially trained to respond to a multitude of situations in a calm and professional manner. It could be an intruder alarm situation, or a health & safety response, but they will always proceed according to the client’s requirements. This includes liaising with emergency services and alarm companies to ensure that your premises are safe and secure. 

All our services offers you peace of mind that if the worst were to happen, you have a qualified team to help deal with the situation, and prevent huge losses from thievery.
