Based in Surrey, we are the trusted choice for security services locally and nationwide. With our resources and manpower, our security company fulfils contracts across the UK.
Please note, we have a dedicated page on this website for event security stewarding and management. We also have a page for our various security guard training courses.
As such, we have not included these services here.
NDST’s door supervisors are fully trained and licensed to Security Industry Authority standards and work at licensed venues and events nationwide. They arrive at the venue or event in uniform, providing a professional look and reassurance.
Whilst on-site, our door supervisors are the first impression given of your venue or event. With this in mind, customer service and satisfaction are our utmost priority.
Staff report to site in time to carry out safety checks as detailed below:
Some roles and responsibilities of our door supervisors include:
We can offer fully trained pit teams for your event. Trained to a BTEC level, through our partnership agreements

To ensure we provide the required level of service, our security officers go through site-specific inductions. Their tasks can include:
NDST can provide fire marshals to monitor and maintain fire safety. They identify hazards, ensure escape routes are available and take effective action if a fire occurs.
In the event of a fire, the fire marshal helps ensure the safety of everyone at the premises. They are fully trained to respond professionally to fire risks and situations by:
Fire drills should be held at least once, preferably twice, each year. Following the fire drills, the fire safety manager should hold a short debriefing session with the fire wardens in order to learn of any problems or difficulties that were encountered. The problems and any remedial action taken to reduce their occurrence in the future should be recorded. Fire drills are important exercises and provide an opportunity for plans and procedures to be developed and modified if necessary.
In some premises where there is a risk of terrorist action directed towards the premises or to others in the vicinity, it is also valuable to carry out a bomb drill occasionally, with the purpose of reminding staff of the actions that they should take. Again, a record of the exercise should be kept and procedures modified if necessary.
Particular consideration should be given to the actions taken in respect of a device thought to be in the street outside as well as those to be taken if a bomb were to be placed inside the building.
We provide officers for short- to long-term contracts, covering all events and circumstances, from private security for a CEO, celebrity or individual to royalty-level security for a multi-national team. Individuals and organisations requiring the services of a solo close protection officer, or an integrated close protection team, are assured of the highest quality protective service available.
NDST can also supply fully integrated VIP protection teams. As an example, these can comprise of a driver, protection officer, escort officer and security team leader.
The key personal attributes of dog handlers include:
To become a dog handler in most public services, you would first need to be working in the organisation. You would then need to meet the organisation’s requirements, such as experience. For example, police handlers usually need at least three years’ experience in ordinary police work before transferring to the dog section.
Entry requirements for private security companies will vary depending on the company. You would be expected to have experience of working with dogs. The National Society of Security Dog Users (NASDU) recommends that you should first get experience as a security officer before considering becoming a dog handler.
Since March 2006, it has been a legal requirement for dog handlers to have a Security Industry Authority (SIA) licence. To get a licence, you must:
When you become a dog handler, your training will vary according to the organisation. For example:
In all organisations, you would have ongoing training to make sure that you maintain the required standards.
In the security industry, you can complete the ASET Level 2 National Award for General Purpose Security Dog Handlers. Training is offered by a number of private training organisations. You could also work towards NVQ Level 2 in Providing Security Services.
As a dog handler in any service, you can work towards NVQ levels 1 to 3 in Animal Care.
We deploy trained first aid officers with current Senior First Aid Certificates to provide all levels of first aid at events nationwide.
A first aid officer is on hand to assist with any medical situation, from small injuries to medical emergencies, helping ensure the safety of visitors and staff. In the event of an incident, your first aid officer will clearly assess what has happened while identifying further risks or hazards. They will calmly reassure any casualties, assess them and call for appropriate assistance if necessary.
