Protection of the Public Policy
CRG Security Solutions and CRG Security Services Ltd recognise their responsibility to the wider community and the role it has to play in protecting the public.
To support this all of our licensed officers receive awareness training in the Project Griffin initiative which is designed to encourage members of the community to work in partnership with the police to deter and detect terrorist activity and crime. All of our officers are empowered to recognise and report suspicious activity and behaviour to the police.
There is also an expectation that if in the course of their day to day duties our officers see evidence of criminal activity or anti-social behaviour they will either report it directly to the local police or do so via their control centre. In the event that they do identify such incidents the officers are instructed they must not put themselves at risk of harm or injury. The officers have also received a similar instruction if they identify vulnerable people that may require protection to ensure their safety.
Members of the management team have received awareness training in Project Argus. This is a NaCTSO led initiative which asks businesses and other organisations to consider their preparedness for terrorist attack. It explores what is likely to happen in the event of a terrorist attack and identifies the measures that can assist in preventing, handling and recovering from such an incident.
Our door supervisors are trained to identify vulnerable people and know what steps to take to protect them. The aim is to enable door staff to support police in taking an active role in ensuring the safety of the public.
Corporate responsibility has long been embedded in the way we do things at CRG - not becuase we feel an obligation to do so, but because we genuinely believe it's the righ thing to do. Our key areas of focus are on local communities and businesses, the environment, health and safety and of course, our people.
Communities and businesses
Our aim to provide safe environments for our clients to live and work and where they can be confident that our prodcuts ans services are keeping them safe, keeping their personal and business assets protected in order for them to achieve their own goals. This takes many shapes and forms - from leading specific initiatives, to helping drive tangible socioeconomic improvements because of the way we do business.
As the goverenment sets even higher standard to meet the challenges posed by climate change, we are committed to measuring, monitoring and improving our carbon footprint. We continue to take proactive steps, both on behalf of our cleints and within our own organisation, to minimise our impact on the environment.
Health and safety
We work closely with our clients, partner, employees and insurers to ensure that we follow best practice throughout our business, and make health and safety our number one priority. We support national campaings such as carbon monoxide awareness with the HSE in order to implement safe working strategies and keep ahead of future safety legislation in order to provide the best possible 'future proof' systems for all our clients.
In addition to ensuring our people work in a healthy and safe environment, we are committed to creating opportunities whilst promoting equality and diversity. We continue to strive to ensure that our people strategies (both recruitment and development) reflect our commitment to corporate responsibility, which is acheived by our in-house development training programmes.
