    Increasing arrests and convictions
    in the retail sector with SECOM Smart Guarding

    With state-of-the-art, always-on Smart Guarding installed across the UK portfolio for a major supermarket chain, we reduced the overall cost of security – allowing the business to deploy guards in only the most high-risk stores during peak times for criminal activity.

    Over the course of our deployment, Smart Guarding was responsible for the reporting of over 800 crimes, resulting in 120 arrests with a 100% conviction rate and over 50 years of custodial sentences. With our intelligent solutions, the retailer was able to spot criminal activity quickly and alert SECOM’s trained operatives who monitored the situation and dealt with it effectively, creating a safer environment for staff and customers.
