Carlisle Security triumphed at this weeks IFSEC 2009 Awards with a clean sweep by winning in both the award categories for security guarding. The IFSEC Awards ceremony, hosted this year by John Sergeant of Strictly Come Dancing fame, saw Carlisle Security pull off a remarkable “double” in their first year of entering the competition; an achievement also making them the only entrant to win two awards.
The work Carlisle Security does for Merseyrail Electrics was recognised by the first of the two awards: “Guarding Service Delivery to Customer”. Recognising as it does the very best practice in service delivery and customer satisfaction this award underlines Carlisle’s commitment to providing it’s customers with t op quality services and value for money. Carlisle Security then took the “Policing Partnership of the Year” award for the provision of the now familiar Travel Safe Officers on London’s Docklands Light Railway. This was the first year this award had been made at IFSEC, and recognises the role of private security companies within the wider policing community. In Carlisle’s case it particularly recognised the close working links between the company and police services around the country; and especially those with the British Transport Police.
Martin Woollam, Carlisle’s Operations Director, accepted the awards on behalf of Carlisle Security. This brings to three the number of awards won by Carlisle Security in the last year, having earlier carried off the award for Best Security Partnership at the Security Excellence Awards. Carlisle Security believes that due to their hat trick of awards they are the most “recognised” security company in the UK in 2008/2009.
