 Retail security guards  for UK stores

If you require a more prominent security presence within your retail shop or shopping centre, we can also provide uniformed retail security guards (manned guards) to work independently or alongside undercover store detectives.

Our retail security guards are a visual deterrent to criminals, and protect the safety and wellbeing of customers and employees in the retail environment.

We only employ the best SIA licensed, vetted retail security guards and store detectives, to help retail businesses prevent financial and emotional damage caused by shoplifting, robbery, violence, abuse, vandalism, fraud and other similar dangers.

Whether you are in need of an extra security presence in store, discreet surveillance or help in reducing theft and damage to stock, Security Kings are here to help.

Store Detectives are not the same as Retail Security Guards.

Although they are both part of a store’s security, they have different roles.

Security guards are usually dressed in uniform and work in full view. Store detectives discreetly operate undercover among both employees and customers.

We take accuracy very seriously

Customers who are not stealing do not appreciate being accused of shoplifting, and this can be extremely damaging to a store if loss prevention officers or store employees falsely accuse a shopper. We make sure that all our loss prevention detectives are expertly trained to be accurate and confident in their observations detecting crime.

Before a suspected shoplifter is approached, officers must work through a process in their minds to ensure all of the requirements to identify shoplifting are met.

Our loss prevention officers use the ASCONE model, which provides a guideline that ensures they do not act unless they are 100% correct in their actions.
