Industry Accreditation
Approved Contractor Scheme

Shergroup Security is an Approved Contractor within the UK’s Security Industry Authority’s accreditation scheme. For our clients, the key benefits of this highly prized accreditation mean across our global services:

  • Using Shergroup Security helps our clients to fulfill their obligations on the vital issue of security for their staff, shareholders, and other stakeholders because we operate at the highest professional standards within the security sector.
  • As Approved Contractors, Shergroup Security is demonstrably committed to customer service and the compulsory licensing of our staff. This means that our clients can rest assured that every security officer deployed on their premises will be working within the law.
  • Shergroup Security’s employment practices have been extensively assessed in respect to quality and best practice. UK security officers are thoroughly vetted and screened under BS7858, and as part of the overall Approved Contractor scheme we only employ security staff with exceptional and proven experience.
  • We have extended this vetting procedure to other parts of our global security service using the UK model as a template for vetting procedures in other parts of the world.
  • Our clients receive personal attention from senior security professionals to ensure that every detail of the security contract is addressed to the customer’s satisfaction.
  • Being part of the Approved Contractor scheme means that Shergroup Security clients can expect cutting edge ideas and technology to be used in the delivery of services.
  • The status of the Approved Contractor scheme is recognized by the police service in the UK, and it offers the potential for enhanced working relationships. The aim is to provide practical benefits through 'joined-up' police, business, and community initiatives, and, where possible, Shergroup Security will look to work with local UK police officers in their more demanding assignments.
  • As with all aspects of the UK accreditation system, Shergroup Security looks to build working relationships with policing partners throughout the world.
