With K9 Protection Ltd our value-added services for the student industry mean we firmly believe we stand out from the crowd when it comes to offering keyholding solutions to the student living industry. In addition to our fast response times and professional team, K9 Protection Ltd are able to provide so much more than just a man with a key to unlock a door. When we attend a student living site on a lock out call in addition to the "normal" services you'd expect, we have a guard who:
- Understands the stressful situation of being locked out
- Can access your resident database and verify identity prior to opening a door
- Can use access control software where required to re-issue a replacement keycard
- Is first aid trained, and has a compassionate and pastoral approach
- Is trained in scene management and evidence preservation skills

In addition to a security guarding service, K9 Protection can manage your post and deliveries for residents staying within your site with our tried and tested post handling services.
We know how important your duty of care to your students is, which is why all of our security staff are vetted to BS7858 and monitored for changes in their DBS file. In addition to industry vetting, all of our student services team are monitored with the Disclosure & Barring Service.
We know how easy it is to lose a key-card, and whether through on site security or a lock-out response service, we're able to help. We will verify the resident's identity and issue cards with the minimum of fuss.
We work with your CCTV installers to ensure that we have a system that works for the building and its guests. Our skilled team are able to use video analytics to monitor a large number of cameras at once and respond rapidly to any potential incidents, no matter how quickly they occur.
At K9 Protection we understand that for many students going away to university is often the largest upheaval in their lives so far. We select guards who strike a perfect balance of security, customer service, and an empathy-led pastoral approach.
