Residential Security Team (RST)

The threat to a client’s residence or place of business from criminals, terrorists, racists, activists and the mentally ill is increasing. When there is a possibility of robbery, vandalism, attack, kidnapping or even assassination, protection from a professional RST Team is vital. Legislation in the UK, which is governed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) has made it illegal to use unqualified ‘Minders’. It is a legal requirement for Close Protection Operatives to hold an SIA Close Protection qualification and a valid SIA Close Protection License. Failure to do so will result in prosecution and non the indemnification of insurance claims.

Starguard deploys highly trained SIA licensed Close Protection Operatives who have the ability to operate in an RST role to minimise threat to property and protect the principal in all situations. This allows the principal, their family and their staff to relax without the worry of organising their own personal safety.
