From Our Website

From our Bury St Edmunds headquarters, we have grown a respected business that provides a professional, tailored service to an extensive list of companies in Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Thetford, Ely, Newmarket and Ipswich. Importantly, our relationships with clients tend to last, with several contracts dating back to 1985. Our experienced, progressive management team and commitment to treating clients and employees with the respect and care, is what sets us apart. You'll discover that our local knowledge and tailored service enables us to give you a level of professionalism that the national suppliers struggle to achieve.


Mobile security patrols are an effectual and cost-effective alternative to static and manned guarding security solutions. Tailored to your business's specific security requirements, a highly visible guard in a sign written vehicle can act as a deterrent to criminal behaviour. Due to the random nature of the mobile guard's patrols, planned burglaries are therefore more difficult to organise and execute, significantly reducing the threat of a break in or other criminal activity. Your property is most vulnerable at night, during the weekends and holiday periods.


Employees who hold keys to your site are in a position of huge responsibility. They're the ones who have to respond to an alarm activation at three o'clock in the morning, not knowing what they'll find when they arrive. Often alarm activations are false alarms, but what about the one time that it isn't? The team at Abbey Security are fully trained to deal with all eventualities, and being based in Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge we can be on site very quickly. At a cost of less than 1.25 a day, it's easy to see why so many organisations in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire are increasingly choosing to outsource their keyholding requirements to Abbey Security where they value the professionalism of a long-standing local security company.


Your security needs are unique. Whether you want manned guarding for patrolling or full gate control, reception duties or machinery and plant monitoring, we tailor our static guarding service to meet your requirements in detail, acting as a seamless extension of your organisation. Our officers are handpicked with the greatest care and consideration. Every one, without exception, is highly skilled and committed to protecting your people and property with unrivalled professionalism. Our officers are dedicated to protecting your people, property and assets, and are experienced in dealing with any situation that may arise.


Restricting access, installing intruder and fire alarm systems, and CCTV cameras, all add value to your manned guarding services. Having an effective security system coupled with a professional monitoring service will not only increase the protection of your property but also reduce your ongoing costs. If you're looking for the installation of a CCTV system we work closely with a trusted supplier, Salvus Security Systems, who have helped many of our clients over the years. For maximum ease and efficiency, you will always deal with one contact at Abbey Security.


With more highly trained, dedicated officers in East Anglia than any other security guard company, our local knowledge and professional approach gives you a service that even national suppliers struggle to achieve. Our experienced management team selects the very best, most committed officers, so whatever you need, our service is tailored to ensure you enjoy seamless, superior protection. Restricting access, installing intruder and fire alarm systems, and CCTV cameras, all add value to your manned guarding services.


We have a unique approach to staff wellbeing at Abbey Security. Our officers benefit from an ongoing personal development programme, and we encourage all staff to grow their careers with us. By rewarding success and long service we are able to retain the best officers in the business. To this end, we give out monthly and annual awards to officers and teams based on customer and supervisory recommendations. Our latest officer of the month can be seen below. Where we are different, is that we care about our officer's outside of work as well as during working hours.
