For the third year running Safetynet Security Group proudly sponsor Kenilworth Wardens under 14's Junior Football Club.
Otis Hanley, CEO of SafetyNet Security Group is delighted to announce that having recently completed all of the necessary criteria, we have now achieved RIPA compliancy.
RIPA is the law governing the use of covert techniques by public authorities. It requires that when public authorities, such as the police or government departments, need to use covert techniques to obtain private information about someone, they do it in a way that is necessary, proportionate, and compatible with human rights.
RIPA’s guidelines and codes apply to actions such as:
- intercepting communications, such as the content of telephone calls, emails or letters
- acquiring communications data: the ‘who, when and where’ of communications, such as a telephone billing or subscriber details
- conducting covert surveillance, either in private premises or vehicles (intrusive surveillance) or in public places (directed surveillance)
- the use of covert human intelligence sources, such as informants or undercover officers
- access to electronic data protected by encryption or passwords
RIPA applies to a wide-range of investigations in which private information might be obtained. Cases in which it applies include:
- public safety
- emergency services
Safetynet Security Group is delighted to announce that effective the new 2013/2014 football season, we have secured the contract to supply static security officers to Birmingham City Football Club, on match days.
This is a ‘front of house’ scenario whereby our duties will include liaison with Directors, Management, Staff, Team, TV crews and the general public. This involves the control of access/egress to all of the major car parks associated with St Andrews and the main stadium car park.
Otis Hanley, CEO of SafetyNet Security Group, a staunch lifelong supporter of the club added: “I am delighted to be afforded an opportunity to work alongside the club I have supported since my youth. I know we can impact on security immeasurably and bring on board our professionalism in order to ensure that all match day parking runs seamlessly”.
Despite a tough climate SafetyNet Security Group has recently won a contract to supply the full ‘on-site’ security solution to an internationally known company that has taken over new premises in Sutton in Ashfield. This company has specialized in and developed a range of products specifically designed for harsh environmental conditions and where there is a risk of explosion due to the presence of flammable atmospheres both offshore and onshore.
Having spent £2M+ refurbishing the whole site, our client was looking for a security company that could take over security, hit the ground running and provide an innovative solution which would solve their ongoing security requirements.
Otis Hanley, CEO of SafetyNet Security Group added that he is delighted that we have been chosen to supply the full on site security to this organization and look forward to developing a strong working partnership with our new client, moving forward.
SafetyNet Security Group is delighted to announce that after a successful ‘trial’ period, effective immediately, our services have been engaged to supply static security guarding to Birchfield Community School.
We will work closely with the Head Teacher and her staff to ensure the Safety of all staff and students is maintained. This will be maintained by the control of access/egress to the School grounds, in a professional and dignified manner.
Otis Hanley, the CEO of SafetyNet Security Group, commented that we are delighted to be afforded an opportunity to work with the School during the longer term.
Safetynet Security Group is an ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) approved Security Company and has also completed the Community Safety Awareness Scheme.
Originally employed as Taxi Marshals the role has developed over time as a high visibility sign-post for help and early intervention approach. We have had excellent feedback from the public on their pastoral work and businesses, CCTV and Police on their work to prevent problems escalating.
We have continued to supply Street Wardens to Leamington Town Centre during a weekend, working closely with Warwickshire Police and Warwickshire District Council.
This has led to Warwick University rolling out a scheme to adopt Street Marshalls to adopt a new strategy to look after their 5000+ students living in the Leamington Spa area. This will help improve the relationship between the Universities, local authorities and local community.
SafetyNet Security Group has been tasked to help with this new initiative. This will promote positive community relations and encourage students to behave responsibly. It will also afford protection to the student population in Royal Leamington Spa.
SafetyNet Security Group has been tasked to work closely with the relevant authorities with the supply of additional Street Marshalls, which will not be restricted to weekends, but will also encompass week days.
