OCS, the international facilities management services company, has been appointed by Her Majesty’s Courts & Tribunals Service (HMCTS) to provide security services encompassing security guarding and alarm monitoring.
HMCTS has invested in new contracts to deliver more time efficient, consistent and user-focused services across its sites. Effective from April 2020 and working in conjunction with the service, OCS will now be providing specialist security and alarm monitoring solutions as part of wider efforts by HMCTS to modernise and improve the experience for service users.
OCS will work alongside HMCTS to mobilise the transition period which will see representatives meet to aid the introduction of new processes and solutions offered by the organisation. The contract will see the delivery of security guarding, key holding, CCTV alarm monitoring and alarm response under a comprehensive security offer at sites which are in constant demand and see heavy footfall.
Justice Minister Chris Philp MP said: “These new contracts will modernise and enhance the experience of all those using our courts and tribunals, delivering more user-friendly services. Our justice system is one of the most advanced in the world and this Government is committed to ensuring that it remains so.”
Bob Taylor, CEO of OCS UK, Ireland and the Middle East, added: “We’re delighted to be awarded the contract to provide security services across the estate and excited to be working with HMCTS to transform and modernise the security service and enhance the experience of courts and tribunals users.”
