Our Services Are

Retail Security

It’s a well known fact that the retail industry has faced huge difficulties since the end of the Celtic Tiger. The biggest issue of course, trying to increase sales while minimizing losses. No easy feat when dealing with a struggling economic climate which has resulted in staff shortages, existing staff hours being cut and of course the infamous cutting of the Garda overtime budget which have all been contributing factors to one element in today’s society seeing a huge increase. Crime!

Not only have retail outlets seen an increase in crime related activities from external sources but sadly so too has there been an increase in internal employee theft. Be it discrepancies in stock control, till skimming, or accounts records being doctored. RFC can provide you with fully trained, licensed and uniformed security officers. Our security officers are trained to be courteous to you, your customers and staff while maintaining complete professionalism when dealing with the more nefarious elements of society who attempt to target your business as a source of illegal gain. Of course, our staff are trained to be a constant and visible deterrent to criminal acts, but we can also provide you with more discreet solutions to other issues you may be experiencing. Whatever your needs, we can tailor your service to ensure you are getting top value for your custom that will be fully dedicated to protect you, your employees, your assets and your customers to ensure hiring RFC becomes a solid investment rather than just another cost

Commercial Security

Each commercial client has their own unique requirements. Perhaps you just need a uniformed presence, maybe a discreet CCTV monitoring operation, or even a full combination of reception, patrolling, escorting, key holding etc.

RFC will tailor a package that suits you giving great value to you, yet helping to bring other costs down through experienced recommendations. After engaging the services of RFC we will meet with you to specify your exact requirements and show you how we will put in place a system of accountability and reporting methods to ensure that you are always kept up to speed on the status of your premises integrity.

We provide uniformed guards for reception duties who will be fully trained on the use of your communications system and fully trained in the importance of representing your business to only the highest professional standards. Both visitors and contractors will be properly vetted and documented upon arrival as per your individual requirements in a courteous and professional manner in such a way that first impressions will be lasting for all of the right reasons.

Patrols will be carried out rigorously and if required CCTV will be monitored diligently while reports and all other necessary documentation will be maintained and clearly defined to ensure compliance with any and all auditing processes you may need to satisfy.

We can also arrange both opening and lock up procedures to suit your needs, and can arrange for mobile patrols outside of business hours and respond to alarm activations allowing you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your premises are being guarded by the best. RFC can also supply your business with extra security staff in the event that your business holds any social events on or off site, once again tailoring a package to suit your every need.

Industrial Security

If Industrial security is what you need, then look no further. Like all other elements of our chosen field, RFC is both equipped and experienced to cater for all of your security requirements.

Whether it’s one facility, a housing estate project or even an entire complex RFC can provide you with full assistance. Be it mobile patrols, Key holding, alarm response, open/lock up services, static guard presence or a variety of access control measures requiring a team of security personnel covering your site 24/7 365 days a year RFC can cover all of your needs. Fully detailed and defined reports are maintained and if required, we can also place digital patrol recording proximity readers on your site to enable you to monitor patrol routines. These readers are discreet and easily installed to enable the patrolling officer to swipe each reader as he passes by utilizing a small hand held device. This device is later downloaded enabling us to provide you with a detailed account of the officers movements while on your site. Depending on your requirement we can provide you with a monthly, weekly or daily record.

Door Supervisors (DSP)

RFC is the leading company in this field thanks to our innovative approach to providing security to licensed premises. While our competitors continually make the mistake of seeing licensed premises as sites that require a ‘strong hand’ approach and make the unfortunate misassumption of sending staff that believe they should demonstrate a stern no nonsense approach RFC see’s the bigger picture.

Our clients need to sell their venue to the public as a place to come to enjoy themselves without feeling intimidated or demeaned. With that in mind we train our door staff to know the importance of representing not only ourselves as a professional outfit but also to represent your venue as the place to be. We accomplish this by ensuring a polite and friendly approach is taken by our staff towards your customers. Your customers will be greeted courteously and made feel welcome to the establishment while being monitored in such a way that they will feel safe rather than be greeted with an oppressive atmosphere.

All of the tactics we employ are done in a way that always considers implementation, that will help your customers to enjoy their visit to your venue, and therefore help to retain and expand repeat business for you.

All of our staff are uniformed, licensed and trained to a level that exceeds the minimum Fetac Level 4 certification required to obtain a license. Most have already completed basic First Aid and some have St John Ambulance certificates. We already provide door staff to several well known sites in Dublin and Cork and our clients regularly compliment our attention to customer service.

We supply all of our staff with 2 way radio’s and discreet earpieces and they are trained to keep an open line of communication with regular scheduled check in’s so that all areas of concern are continually monitored. If trouble ensues our staff are trained to deal with it professionally and are able to quell most disturbances through polite yet assertive communication. Our staff are trained to only make physical contact as a last resort once it is necessary to restrain someone from hurting themselves or others. In this scenario, reasonable force will never be exceeded.RFC also prides itself in maintaining a strong relationship with local law enforcement. Naturally we are fully licensed by the Private Security Authority to engage in these services as well as carrying full insurance, and as always RFC can tailor a package to suit your venues individual requirements at the most competitive rates in the industry.

In addition to being cost effective our elimination of gung ho tactics all too common in the door security field helps to reduce the chances of legal action being sought due to a mishandled situation.

This is why RFC are the main industry leaders when it comes to offering security solutions to licensed premises.

Event Security

As off yet this is an area that does not need a specific event security license so any licensed company can get involved in this area. Unfortunately this means that many companies attempt to get involved in this sector without realizing the importance of proper planning.

We at RFC Security already provide cover to many different events around the country so are experienced in many areas of Crowd and Access Control. RFC will be happy to carry out a detailed evaluation of your planned event and advise on the areas that will need coverage, once again being able to offer a cost effective tailored solution to suit your needs. We work closely with the client and local law enforcement to ensure that members of the public attending the event are kept safe and secure and enjoy their time at the event thanks to our courteous and professional approach. We can cater to your needs at short notice if necessary but prefer advance notice of your requirements where possible to ensure that you will always be in a position to avail of RFC Security’s high standard of attention to detail and professionalism which has already become our defining feature. If you require this service call our offices and you will be directed to the right site manager for your event.

  • We are a busy property management company and we recently switched providers of our "after hours emergency service" to RFC Security Limited. Not only were RFC competitive on price they have proven to be better on service. In the past as a Director of Maple Leaf Property, I found myself constantly answering queries from our previous provider. I could never leave my mobile phone out of my hand for fear of missing an emergency call as it was inevitable that I would get disturbed After switching to RFC I can honestly say that I can relax at the weekends and after hours. The staff have proved themselves to be totally competent and direct all the emergencies to the relevant service provider. I would also be very concerned that the service they are providing to our customers is polite and customer friendly and to date I have received no complaints. I am very happy with the service and I will continue to remain with RFC as long as they continue with the high standard of service they are providing at present
