Static Guards

Group 8 Security is well known in providing security services throughout Ireland.

All our security guards are PSA licensed and trained to at least Fetac Level 4. In addition, we provide customer specific training prior to posting a guard at your premises so that he is familiar with your set-up and any specific duties that need to be carried out.

Below are some of the types of premises for which we currently provide uniformed security:

  • Construction Sites
  • Retail Premises
  • Housing Estates
  • Cinemas
  • Student Accommodation
  • Office Buildings
  • Warehouses
  • Hospitals
  • Car Parks
Protective Surveillance

Protective Surveillance, a Covert Protection Service

Group 8 Security offers Protective Surveillance as either a stand alone service, or to aid our Close Protection Services.

Protective Surveillance enables an individual to go about their daily routine without obtrusive protection, yet with the peace of mind that they are surrounded by a highly trained protective team.

Protective Surveillance is a means of providing protection, on-going intelligence and Risk Assessment via Surveillance, both physical and electronic. Protective Surveillance is ideal where normal Close Protection Services might be seen as sensitive, intrusive or inappropriate.

Protective Surveillance is suitable for:

  • High Net Worth Individuals
  • Stalking
  • Children and Families

We would also recommend Protective Surveillance as part of a larger Close Protection Package, used as an intelligence and risk management tool.

Residential Security Teams (RST)

Protection of your residence is a frontline defence and deterrent as either part of a close protection security package, or as a stand-alone service. No-one should feel at risk or vulnerable in their own home; but sadly, wealth or fame attracts a certain level of threat.

Ideally, prior to any deployment of residential security, we would carry out a full Security Review and Risk Assessment. However, should circumstances dictate rapid deployment, a Primary Review and Risk Assessment would be carried out and acted upon; this would then be followed by a more in-depth report.

For whatever reason you feel unsafe, we will be able to put your mind at ease with workable, cost effective solutions.

Some solutions include:

  • CCTV
  • Static Security Guards
  • Mobile Patrols
  • Panic Buttons
  • Access Control
Mobile Patrol

Our Mobile Patrol Teams carry out frequent call-out patrols and checks at irregular times, to ensure that a client’s premises is fully secured and safe. Our Mobile Patrol Service also include an Emergency Response to security risk situations.

This service is an alternative, cost effective package for clients who do not favour a full time manned guarding service. Our Patrol Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


At Group 8 Security it’s a prerequisite for our employees to have a Private Security Authority (PSA) license. We provide training in-house, to ensure each of our security guards carry out best practice in the field. After finishing our training, our guards are confident in their ability to perform their duties no matter what the circumstances.

We offer a variety of training courses, and have a fully licensed and qualified training department. The training department serves a dual purpose, we offer both internal and external training programmes. The programmes on offer include:

  • Door Supervisor and basic guarding skills
  • Manual handling
  • First Aid
  • Retail Security Awareness
  • ISPC Code Training
  • Dealing with violence and physical treats


We offer internal training that is both realistic and practical. Our in-house training is tailored to the sector and business’s needs. We are security professionals interested in raising standards within our industry and in giving the public and our clients a cost effective high quality training experience.

Please feel free to contact us to find out more about times and availability of each course.

Deployment of our teams as static, mobile or rapid reaction to any location, can be arranged at short notice. Our Management Team are on hand to discuss any requirements that you may have regarding this.
