Description:This British Standard gives recommendations for the management,
staffing and operation of an organization providing security guarding
(see Annex A) services on a static site and/or mobile patrol basis.

services, keyholding and response services, door supervisors, close
protection services, event stewarding and the management and
operation of closed-circuit television (CCTV).

supervisors, keyholding and response services and event stewarding are
given in BS 7872, BS 7958, BS 7960, BS 7984 and BS 8406 respectively.
