Advanced security solutions for prisons

Maximising prison security requires advanced solutions that integrate internal surveillance, perimeter security, and access control seamlessly.

These sophisticated systems are designed to monitor your site continuously, allowing for immediate responses to any potential breaches or disturbances within the facility.

Violence between inmates, aggressive behaviour towards guards, and drug dealers using drones to drop off packages over prison walls are regular occurrences.

As a result, partnering with an experienced security company is key to meeting your needs and requirements.

External CCTV cameras

Robust external CCTV cameras provide prisons with the ability to monitor perimeter and outdoor common areas. 

These high-resolution cameras are crucial for maintaining visibility around the clock.

As a result, these cameras act as a deterrent to potential external threats and ensure site perimeters are guarded 24/7.

From PTZ devices, all the way through to long-range thermal and bullet cameras, our system designers will deliver on your requirements.





Internal surveillance cameras

Internal surveillance systems within prison walls are paramount for monitoring inmate activity, preventing contraband circulation, and violence, and ensuring the safety of both staff and inmates.

This 24/7 surveillance capability is essential for maintaining order and responding quickly to incidents. 

Where threats turn into live security events, the footage gained is crucial in remedying the situation.

Dome, fisheye, and anti-ligature cameras are key ingredients of a well-designed internal surveillance solution.


Access control & lockdown solutions

Controlled internal access solutions are vital for navigating the complex requirements of a prison security system.

These systems ensure that only authorised personnel can access secure areas, thus managing internal movements effectively and preventing unauthorised entry.

Intercoms, facial recognition solutions, fob access, and lockdown systems, form part of an integrated approach to access control within a prison.

As a result, these solutions protect guards, staff and visitors from a range of threats.



Perimeter security & alarms

Perimeter security and advanced threat detection systems form the first line of defense in prison security.

Employing the latest technologies, these systems detect any unauthorised approach or breach attempts, enabling rapid deployment of security measures to neutralize threats.

ANPR, thermal cameras, AI-driven video analytics, and long-range bullet cameras are the backbone of a robust perimeter protection system.

Furthermore, monitored alarms fitted with beams and motion sensors are deployed to detect and deter intruders and those looking to breach the prison’s perimeter

We engaged Safeguard Systems to design and install an internal CCTV and access control fob system to protect our premises, staff and car park. These guys worked with me to give me the system I needed, and worked to challenging deadlines. Great company, top people.

I've partnerred with Safeguard on several projects before and I wouldn't go anywhere else for a quality security system installation. Our client, a high-end hair salon required a full studio design and fit-out along with a highly effective CCTV system to help protect and watch over their premises.

We are a trustee organisation responsible for a recreational facility and its associated pavilions and buildings. We approached Safeguard Systems to upgrade our security CCTV systems. The customer experience has been first class from start to finish.

Safeguard Systems fitted a complete camera and intruder beam system for my storage compound, started the job very quickly and explained what was possible clearly. Really happy with the system, the remoter viewing capabilities and I've had no reliability issues either.

I got in touch with Safeguard Systems to help secure our warehouse unit with an intruder alarm and CCTV system. They were incredibly helpful and came out to conduct a survey on our premises when others just wanted to provide a quote over the phone.
