Museums, Art Dealers and Collectors Security
Museums, galleries, art collectors and stately homes are a prime target for crime due to the high value of their collections. These can consist of artwork, valuable artefacts and antiques. They require a high level of security and surveillance at all times.
Having worked within the art world for many years now, Sec Tech UK has an excellent understanding of the steps needed to ensure that treasured goods are well protected from thieves and criminals. Because of the high value of the pieces, they are always a target for organised crime. For this reason, full understanding of the threat and the precautionary steps that need to be taken to ensure that the pieces stay with their rightful owners and guardians is of the utmost importance.
Security can often be even harder to provide for museums as they have all their works on display as opposed to under lock and key as a collector might. All areas must be heavily alarmed and closely monitored at all times to avoid any criminal activity. These institutions can be particularly prone to raids and to smash and grab offences which can happen at any time. All security personnel and museum management must be aware of threat at all times and ready to act quickly to avoid any damage or removal of any of the pieces. Everyone needs to know what to do in the event of an incident. Having this type of planning in place is a big step towards minimising the backlash and knock-on effect that an attack can have on a museum or valuable collection.
Sec Tech UK’s exceptional vigilance levels and attention to detail sets us apart from many other security companies who do not get to the root of the problem and create preventative measures prior to an incident. With specialist training, we can help existing staff members be aware of potential risks and how to manage these effectively within their environment.
