Cheshire police headquarters are located in the market town of Winsford. The purpose-built site houses the force communications centers, offices, administration blocks and vehicle garages. Managing the effective control of staff and visitors was a challenging project, with key emphasis being placed on the protection of the force's staff and buildings from a range of potential security risks.
Paramount Security Group was awarded the contract to manage and maintain the security needs of the prestigious location. With extensive experience in supplying and maintaining the requirements of police forces within England and Wales, Paramount Security Group offered the confidence level the force required to ensure its aims and objectives would be met.
The estate had a wide range of systems from different security manufacturers, they also ranged from obsolete equipment which needed to be maintained, through to more advanced modern systems designed specifically for the law enforcement market sectors.
Service level agreements (SLAs) were critical to the client, as any system down time would be costly and cause unacceptable levels of disruption to the facility. Paramount’s national service centre is able to manage any incident from its Midlands location, dispatching response engineers to ensure any disruption or system failure can be addressed quickly and in most cases prevent a widespread system malfunction.
Paramount has a proven work history with the protection of law enforcement premises, working with other major UK police forces gave Cheshire Police the confidence to award the security contract to Paramount Security Group for a term of five years.
