"Spurious allegations against Option 1 Security"

A review of Option 1 Security Ltd by Advocacy Team written on Wednesday 26th of December 2007



I was disappointed to read your comments and would like to take this opportunity to rebut some of the spurious allegations made:

1. A.B.H. (Actual Bodily Harm) is an English offence and not Scottish (someone has been watching 'The Bill').

2. As an expanding company, recruitment is a constant process. We actively target new personnel to satisfy the demand of our growing portfolio of clients and assignments.

3. Pay rates with Option 1 Security are more than competitive and markedly higher than minimum wage.

4. Training is in line with statutory guidelines enforced by the Private Security Industry Act (2001). Each member of staff completes a nationally recognised qualification consisting of two exams and a minimum of 30 hours of classroom based training.

Option 1 Security is one of only and handful of SIA approved contractors and is independently audited by a UKAS accredited firm conforming to all the relevant British Btandards.

As a company we continually strive to be the security company that others are measured against.

You or your friend are welcome to contact me directly where I would be happy to address any grievance either of you may have.
