Keyholding services are where a set of your keys are securely held by the security company. In the event of an alarm response being issued, trained security officers will visit your premises to check it over for signs of forced entry or damage. Any criminal offences will be reported to the police and other necessary arrangements made to fix any problems. Once secured your alarm will be reset and the premises secured using the key set held by the security company.

This sort of service is a simple one. The benefits of keyholding are that it offers peace of mind to business owner, it helps ensure the safety of staff and removes the need for them to monitor the security of the business 24/7, it leaves this task to the experts who are trained to deal with many types of situations. AK9 Security Services will offer you peace of mind and a quick response to alarm calls leaving you the business owner to concentrate on running and developing your business.
