Sector Security Services Ltd was founded in 1995 and has provided Security Solutions to customers in a variety of industries throughout its history. Our range of security solutions and geographic coverage has grown steadily over the years, to match the needs of our customers and the everchanging security landscape. It began with a small team of operations and administration staff. Today, Sectors expertise also spans an array of Total Security Solutions for our clients including Control Room services, lone worker monitoring, manned guarding, key holding and alarm response, CCTV monitoring, help desk services and security consultancy.
Our mission is simply to supply Security with support in order to make sure that when our customers return to ‘home’ or ‘work’ everything is safe.
Sectors vision is to be the best provider of the most effective, value for money, quality service, by giving our unique, dedicated, fast and effective response to our customers both established and new.
For more than 25 years, Sector has steadily evolved from a Lancashire based company concentrating primarily on traditional security services into a national dynamic security solutions leader with a breadth of speciality services.

Security Industry Authority – Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS)
The ACS scheme measures private security companies against a set of independently assessed criteria which are based upon widely recognised business improvement models (including ISO 9001 and the European Foundation for Quality Management Excellence Model). The scheme also draws upon Investors in People and includes relevant British Standards.
Continual improvement is also the reason why scoring is used as part of the assessment approach. Individual contractors can use their score to track and measure progress against the ACS Standard. They can also use their score to compare their overall performance to that of other approved contractors. Sector Security’s last audited score easily places us in the top 10% of all approved contractors in the industry.
Sector Security Services Ltd holds SIA Approved Contractor Scheme approval for the following services: CCTV Monitoring, Security Guarding & Key holding.
CHAS is a pre-approval scheme, which allows contractors to demonstrate to potential clients that they meet the required health and safety standards, specifically focussing on policy, organisation, and arrangements.
Safe Contractor is another accreditation, which demonstrates to potential clients that all specific standards of health and safety are being met by a professional and safety conscious company.
Sector’s Control Room operations are conducted internally, and our facility is modern, well equipped, and fully meets all BS 10800: 2020 and BS 7499: 2020 requirements. The benefit of our inhouse facility is that we can ensure first-class service delivery, whilst maintaining confidentiality, security, flexibility and management and staff stability.
