Why 168 Security Limited?
Formerly known as Capricorn Security & Training Ltd we relaunched as 168 Security in 2017 to reflect our expanding services and round the clock protection. Led by John Lardner who has over 20 years experience in the private security industry, the team is committed to providing a high calibre of security personnel that can represent both 168 Security & YOU with a professional approach that is often lacking within our industry.

Our Operations are based in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire but our teams can be dispatched in & around London & the South East.

We take care of the logistics for one-off assignments such as a VIP Event to long-term contracts for venues & corporate sites. We can also work alongside your existing security provider to add additional support.

Our Team will discuss your security concerns & needs in person and after a full risk assessment, we will provide you with your full security & protection solution at your desired location.

168 Security Limited is 'on call' every hour of every week to our clients so you can speak directly with a security operative to come to your assistance when you need it most.

168 Security has a designated logistics team that can manage your security workforce on your behalf, using a unique software program to schedule, monitor & confirm shift attendance as well as safeguarding our officers in hertfordshire.

If you work within the Licensed trade & hospitality industry you can be assured that our team works tirelessly to build a solid rapport with your licensing officers, police & local authority to increase your customer experience & protect your premises license.
