1Do your Guards have Criminal Background Checks?
Yes, for felony & misdemeanor convictions and/or arrests, and if an
employee candidate has a felony conviction, they will be denied
employment by CS. Before hiring, we also check prior employers and
require character references for employment, and Good conduct.
2Realistically, how quickly can you have a security guard at the location need?
If it is within the areas that we operate, then within 30 Minutes of
the call (2017 average was 1hour). If the site is rural or outside the
area, then travelling time would need to be factored in.
3How do we renew the contract?
Contracts are renewed automatically unless you request to cancel.
4I do not know how long I will need the Security Guard, how flexible can you be?
CS fully understand that flexibility is key and that if you hired a Security Guard for 8 hours we appreciate that this could go to 10 or 12 hours depending on circumstances and we could accommodate this.
Changes to a contract can be made at anytime, 24 hours’ notice would
give CS and you the customer , the time to ensure that the changes are
implemented smoothly. We also appreciate that 24 hours’ notice is not
always possible, in cases of emergency cover etc.
The Service Agreement for the provision of a Security Guard can be a
one off shift to a set amount of days/weeks/months all year round.
Under certain conditions we can provide a stand-by service for a
smaller fee, rather than a full time Security Guard.
5What Guarantee do we have that someone will actually turn up?
We are a bespoke Security Company, guards from CS not turning up once
or twice would jeopardise our reputation and damage any future
business. It is in everyone’s interest that we deliver a high quality
service at all times.
All CS guards have a proven track record in being punctual and
professional, and CS has a ZERO no show record as of 2018. To add to
this, when you book one of our guards, we’ll give you our duty
operations managers contact detail. So If you have any problems you
can contact them in a moments notice anytime night or day.
6Do i or my company need to provide anything?

utility. This is a place or a unit (depending on site) where the
guards have shelter and access to water, electricity and sanitation.
