Axis Security Secures deal to protect iconic London landmark

Axis Security has been awarded a contract to provide manned guarding services to St Paul’s Cathedral, one of London’s most iconic landmarks.

A team of security officers with a supervisor have been employed to help secure the Cathedral seven days a week, with duties including visitor bag checks and mobile patrols. While St Paul’s Cathedral is one of the most famous and most recognisable sights of London, receiving hundreds and thousands of visitors every year, it is primarily a place of worship and so a discreet and customer-focused service is essential.

The contract was awarded to Axis Security as a result of the company’s excellent reputation in providing manned guarding services at neighbouring Paternoster Square, where the estate security team is part of the business security forum supporting the City of London Police.

David Mundell, Managing Director of Axis Security, says the contract win is a significant achievement, and the result of careful planning: “The team was handpicked with extremely capable security officers who have become genuine ambassadors for the Cathedral and Axis Security. We are extremely proud to be working with, and helping to protect such an iconic London landmark.”
