PETERBOROUGH, ENGLAND, May 03, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A score of 163 points puts the Peterborough based security firm in the very top of all SIA ACS accredited security companies in the UK. This was the second time that Accent on Security has been awarded an exceptional score by SIA ACS, with the previous one being 159 points, an exceptional achievement for a security group of its size. This year the score was not only maintained, but also increased up to 163 points, making Accent on Security one of the leading companies in the UK in door supervision, security guarding, CCTV and key holding services.
The Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) is a system of inspection for providers of security services, which is regulated by the Security Industry Association (SIA).
Established in 2001 by the Private security Industry Act, the SIA is required through the ACS to establish a "system of inspection for providers of security services, under which those organisations, which satisfactorily meet the agreed standards, may be registered as approved, and may advertise themselves as such."
The objective of the SIA's ACS is to raise performance standards and assist the private security industry in developing new opportunities.
Accent on Security's ACS score has increased to 163 following its recent audit, a result which has thrilled the whole team, especially the company's CEO Rog Hatlem: "We are delighted with the results, which keep us firmly within the top 1% of SIA ACS accredited security companies," commented Mr. Hatlem.
He also added: "2013 has proved a difficult year for the security industry, but AOS have been actively involved in a number of new projects and 2014 looks set to be a very promising year for us."
Not content with resting on its laurels, AOS is following a rapid growth programme for the remainder of 2014, with a forecast to increase the turnover of the business considerably. The company, which has a geographic focus on London, the South East, the East Midlands, the East Anglia, Northwest England, and Southern Scotland; is already well on its way to achieving its target.
