University and college Security

We provide a range of bespoke security services for universities and colleges.

We can provide your university or college with round-the-clock security guards to patrol the campus during the day and night. Our security guards will control access and movement throughout the campus, assist visitors and students who need help, lock up buildings throughout the campus at the end of the day to prevent unauthorised access and unlock the campus again in the morning.

Here is a breakdown of the university and college campus services we can provide:

  • Uniformed security guards on site 24/7 who are licensed by the security industry authority
  • Regular site patrols 24/7
  • Deterring unauthorised access
  • Access and movement control on site
  • Building lock ups and unlocks
  • Assisting visitors and students
  • Assisting emergency services
  • Resolving emergency or criminal incidents
  • Daily occurrence report logs

All security guards provided by Shield Facilities are smart, professional and presentable, whilst their approachable nature makes them a real asset to your site and university or college as a whole. Always on hand to assist those around your campus who may need it, their presence alone will be enough to deter potential criminals and ensure crime rates remain low all year round.

Drug Detection Dog Services

Colleges and universities may sometimes have issues with substance abuse. We can help maintain a safe, drug free environment by bringing our drug detection dog teams onto campus to perform drug searches.

This will assist in identifying any students or staff that may be possessing, using or distributing controlled substances on campus.

Our Proactive Drug Detection Dogs Detect the presence of drugs by searching cars, buildings, schools, factories, postal depots, aircraft’s and ships.

Commanded by the handler, the dog indicates the presence of drugs by giving a passive signal, normally a sit or “stand and stare”.

Our Passive Drug Detection Dogs can scan people entering work places, nightclubs, festivals, airports and many other environments.

Worked on a lead by a handler, our dogs make no contact with the people they scan. If drugs are detected on a person, the dog will indicate to the handler, giving grounds for a security officer or police officer to conduct a search for unlawful possession of drugs.

Shield Facilities provide Drug Detection Dog teams to seek out drugs and mind altering substances. Our drug detection dogs are trained to indicate the presence of:

  • Cannabis

  • Cocaine

  • Crack Cocaine

  • Heroin

  • Amphetamines

  • Ecstasy

  • Ketamine

  • MDMA

The Drug Detection Dog Services helps to maintain a drug free environment. The teams are uniformed and operate overtly, also acting as a deterrent. For a more discrete service, we can operate in plain clothes and in an unmarked vehicle.

Our Drug Detection Dogs can be trained to detect virtually any odour, in many different environments. Our dogs are trained to locate target scents on persons, in vehicles, concealed in bags or buildings and are comprisable to teams operating in the public sector. The dogs are well trained to UK and European standards and the handlers are self motivated and experienced. We also integrate well with other security personnel during a deployment, which makes for an overall efficient and professional for the client and attending public. A full confidential written report is made available following every deployment, this is sent across to the client should they wish to receive it, we then keep it on file.
