You need a way to cohesively protect your people and patients, your restricted stock and your sensitive and private records.

  • For almost a decade, we’ve entrusted Southern Cross Protection with a number of our facilities in both NSW and QLD. Southern Cross Protection has been providing security solutions fit for each site including mobile patrols and welfare checks. Their security services include calls on site and making sure doors and windows are secure and intact, whilst looking for signs of damage, vandalism, forced entry, and unauthorised persons. Southern Cross Protection remains a reliable and dependable security partner that certainly contributes to IRT’s long-standing stable repute in the aged care industry.

  • To keep up with the rapid change the retail industry is undergoing, it is undeniable that businesses such as ours need to do things differently. Price wars and constant promotions to grab market share continue to put pressure on margins. Loss prevention and shrinkage management have a direct impact to those margins, helping create a competitive advantage against retailers that do not manage them. Our partnership with Charter Security (part of the Southern Cross Protection Group) over the past 17 years working on loss prevention has resulted in lower shrinkage and a safer working environment for our staff and customers. This long term relationship has raised security standards in the retail industry.

  • This letter is to highlight our satisfaction in having sub contracted our security to Charter Security (part of the Southern Cross Protection Group), and how we have appreciated working with them for the past 6 years. Their strength in our eyes lies in the support they provide to us whenever we are faced with issues, items out of the ordinary or situations where we need security expertise. We know that with one call our concerns are taken seriously, are listened to, and are dealt with in a calm, efficient manner that considers our position, budget and timelines. We have many high profile events here with various dignitaries, VIPs and celebrities, and have been able to approach these events with a great level of confidence because we know that they are on top of it all. They are genuinely keen to ensure their clients receive the best service they can offer, and are able to do that in a personable, positive, and mature manner that gives us the comfort that we will be in partnership for many years to come.

  • From the moment the team stepped on-site, they knew our event inside out. All guards were in position well before the rostered times, all staff were happy, pleasant, and smiling, and enjoying their tasks. In addition to all being incredibly friendly, many assisted with other tasks of radioing when stocks at the door were running low, and handing out of lanyards, show bags, and catalogues to our visitors. This was never asked of them but something they all took the initiative to do. Having a team like this on-site instills enormous confidence in us, knowing that the job will always be addressed and get done to a high standard. We look forward to working with this team again. We have nicknamed these guys ‘The A-Team’.

  • I am writing to praise the efforts of all your staff. Their calm professionalism displayed during aggressive protests has reassured our staff and prevented the crowds from turning violent. I wanted to express our gratitude on behalf of the Liverpool City Council for providing such an excellent service.
