Our Shopping Centre Security Services 


Our team here at Perth Security & Guard Services have over 23 years of experience providing security services for shopping centers across Perth and Western Australia. 

Our primary shopping center security services include: 

Security officers 


Our team of professional security guards has over 2 decades of experience patrolling and overseeing the safety of shopping complexes, large and small. We provide both a stationery ‘watch out’ service and can also conduct ad-hoc or regular patrols of your center, on either a full-time or part-time basis. 

Our officers are fully licensed, highly skilled, and have the experience and leadership qualities necessary for an elite security service. So, when it comes to addressing instances of unauthorized access, theft, vandalism or violence, you know you can depend on us. 


Alarm response 


Threats to a security center don’t stop at 5.00pm. This is why we offer a tailored alarm response service monitoring your center day and night. If we detect unauthorized movement, our officers and local law enforcement authorities will be immediately notified to quickly address it. 

Our team is trained to act quickly when alerted. So, you can always have the peace of mind to know your complex is secure 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 


Access control 


Not all parts of your shopping center are open to the public – so it’s critical to ensure only authorised visitors are permitted to enter. This can involve installing systems that require readers, keypads, key cards, and fingerprint scanning to ensure authorised access.

Our equipment can relay data back to your systems, so your team will also know who is coming in and going out (and ensure only welcome visitors can come inside).
