Oakpark Security are delighted to announce the start of a new working relationship with a prestigious department store chain at their site in Colchester, Essex. Oakpark will provide upskilled uniformed retail security officers to supplement the chain’s in-house loss prevention team during times of staffing stress, increased risk or seasonal peaks in footfall.

“The contract is an exciting opportunity for Oakpark Security to showcase our focus on customer service, but also to enhance our specialist knowledge of this challenging sector.”

Key to our success in being chosen by this discerning customer was an ability to mobilise the contract quickly and efficiently, and guarantee a high quality pool of local security officers who could be deployed at short notice if necessary.

We will further be supporting the customer with a Mobile Response service to provide keyholder escorts in the event of an intruder alarm activation at both their retail outlet and their local distribution centre.

Operations Manager Rob Clark has worked closely with the customer during this mobilisation and offered the following comments: “It is always rewarding when Oakpark Security secures new business in our hometown of Colchester, especially when we can create jobs that exceed the recommended remuneration of the National Living Wage Foundation. However this is a particularly exciting opportunity not only for Oakpark Security to showcase our focus on customer service, but also for our entire team to enhance their specialist knowledge of this challenging sector”.
