“…We have an excellent partnership with City Group Security and I genuinely regard it as that. We have frank and honest discussions about how to get the job done and they are willing to change the way they work to meet the ever-changing needs of our sector. The management is very strong from top down to supervisor and this makes it easy to get things sorted out without any issues. In many cases City Group Security go beyond the contract terms on our sites to delight our customers and they are well regarded…”
