Ellie Schotchmer - 31/01/2019

All of the Security Scotland staff were really great. They were so friendly which is exactly what we wanted, and were all really helpful. I was particularly impressed with your supervisor who really helped us on organising the process and positions of the guys when escorting artists to & from their vehicles.

Jennifer Morrison - 09/2018

Thank you for all of your operational support on the ground at the Great Scottish Run in Glasgow City Centre and the key input throughout the event and please also thank all your staff for staying back – it was a great event and the other organisers were very happy.

Firstly, I was at Fiesta Fold over the summer as a punter and your staff on the gates were fantastic! Thank you for a fantastic team at the Cathedral - nightshift and dayshift. Staffing suitability was on point! Really well presented and approachable. They supported the operation on the ground really well.

Paul Gillmon - Seniors Open 08/2018

Claire Johnston - National Bowls Championship 08/2018

A big thank you to everyone who helped make our National Championships a success. The event went really well and I have nothing but praise for all the staff that worked over the couple of weeks. Every member of staff conducted themselves in a very professional manner and could not fault them at all. It made my life easier and didn’t have to worry – especially the overnight security, the retailers left each night in confidence that their goods were in safe hands. Please pass on my thanks to the full team.

Gillian Urquhart - Historic Scotland (Kings and Clansmen Event) 08/2018

Thanks for arranging for us to have 7 staff on at the weekend. They were a great team, I have thanked Stuart in person for the level of service they provided but I’d also like to put my appreciation in writing to say thanks for helping everything run so smoothly at this weekend’s event. I was very impressed and I received complements from the staff at Fort George too to pass on.

Robert Hanratty (General Manager - Guardforce Security Limited)

‘Having Security Scotland on the Ed Sheeran World Tour showed just why we worked in partnership on such a premier tour, the Management Team understood the brief from the first meeting and delivered high quality, competent personnel, from start to finish the company epitomised professionalism’

Roddy Mackay (EDF Festival – Festival Director) - July 2018

Without doubt THE BEST security firm in Scotland by a coutnry mile. For the third year on the trot Security Scotland policed our event with a smile, the professionalism of the staff is absolutely superb, great attitudes... even in thr pouring rain! If anyone requires security for any event you don't need to look anywhere else, don't settle for second best, go for the best. Mark Thorburn and his team simply cannot be beaten.

Laura Gray – Historic Scotland (Viking Invasion, Dunstaffnage Castle) 06/2018

Taking this opportunity to drop you a note to thank you for your sterling work this weekend. In spite of some noteworthy challenges, by and large your team did a great job and special mention to the team manning the west one way system.

Les Kidger (Director at LCC Live: Summer 2017) – October 2017

“Since Security Scotland took over the security & stewarding provision at LCC Live we have noted significant changes. The staff they provide are very professional, experienced, pro-active and most importantly very people friendly, which as an event organiser is pivotal to ensure we maximise the whole customer experience at our events. The time & effort the Management Team put in pre-event in terms of planning, event documentation & venue site visits was excellent which ensured our show days ran seamlessly. Their liaison with Police and all other event agencies was a credit to them and it was continually commented on throughout our summer shows up & down the country. I would definitely have no problem recommending Security Scotland to any event organisers looking for a security provider. Looking forward to 2018″

Warren Jones (Fusion Festival Head of Crowd Management) - September 2017

"Chris, I've just arrived home, a massive thank you doesn't seem enough to you and your team. What a weekend and I could not have done it this year without you.

Fraser Napier (Historic Scotland) – May 2017

“Just wanted to pass you over some feedback about the two members of Security Scotland who were supplied yesterday for the single-day event at Bothwell Castle. They were absolutely brilliant! Their main duty was to direct traffic into our 2 car parks which they did well, but more than that they passed visitor feedback they received to me which was really useful. Their customer service was excellent. They also gathered together three heavy a-frames for me to load into my van at the end of the event which was really helpful. I hadn’t asked them to do that but was really grateful.”

Ross Glover (Motherwell Fan) – April 2017

“I wish to compliment you on the quality of stewarding and the helpfulness of the staff from my experience of attending the Irn Bru Cup final recently at Fir Park. I am a St. Mirren fan and was sitting in the Cooper Stand. As I have a disability and cannot weight bear, I require a wheelchair for anything other than a short distance where use crutches to take my weight. As I had bought a seated ticket for the game, required my wheelchair to be stored during the match. I phoned Motherwell FC beforehand and spoke to a very nice lady named Stacey who assured me my chair would be able to be stored during the match. On matchday, the stewards were extremely welcoming and helpful, most notably Nicola (I think) Who advised where my wheelchair would be stored, Kenny who helped me to my seat and Deirdre Who was on hand to make sure everything went to plan (apart from the result Of the match!) I would be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to those concerned — I hope you are the correct person to send this e-mail to. people are very quick to complain when things go wrong so think it is important to compliment When things go well. Thanks again!”

Alan Marshall (Motherwell FC – Safety Officer) – April 2017

“Since taking over the stewarding at Motherwell Fc we have noted tangible Differences The staff from security Scotland are very professional and very Supporter friendly, I have noticed a dramatic drop in supporter complaints down to zero. The rest of the management staff at the club are also getting positive feedback about the supporter experience on matchdays. On the occasions that we have taken staff away to other venuse we have had our supporters commend them for being the go between with the grounds safety team. The clubs operation has had nothing but praise from the Police and match delegates. Indeed the SPFL commented on the professionalism from the safety team at the recent Irn Bru Cup final which Fir park hosted. Motherwell Fc look forward to working with the safety team to raise the level of the match day experience for all supporters both home and away in the coming seasons.

Colin Murphy - Hamilton Academical F.C. – Mar 2017

“Since taking over the stewarding at Hamilton we have noticed a tangible improvement on all fronts. The support we have as a club from Security Scotland gives a level of confidence that we were lacking in recent times.

All of your staff’s suggestions for improvements to the stadium have been implemented and we will continue to seek their advice as we go forward”

“ We have used Security Scotland for a number of years and from the outset they have provided a first class service to our Clients. The job specification required a considerate and professional approach to the many challenges presented by a busy city centre location. Security Scotland met those challenges and with the continued support and hands on approach from senior management, they continue to provide a Manned Guarding Service at developments under our management. Consequently, I would have no reservations whatsoever in recommending this company to anyone looking for a similar service. ”

John Sanders (Operations Manager – Mitie) – Aug 2013

We have since then worked together on the introduction of TVM’s at Glasgow underground stations, Commonwealth games in Glasgow 2014 and more recently provided personnel for stewarding requirements. I have found James, Mark & Fabio’s knowledge, experience and straight forward honesty a breath of fresh air in the security industry. I look forward to many more years of continued partnership in what we do and do well. ”
