In April 2018, G4S commenced the integrated security contract for over 790 properties in the UK, including job centres, for the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP).

The contract will run for an initial period of five years, with the potential for a two year extension thereafter.

The DWP’s objective was to procure a security service supportive of their transformation programme which aims to reduce costs, whilst maintaining safety of the users of its properties. We will be modernising the way security is provided using an Effects-Based Methodology "Security Threat Risk Assessment" which has been aligned with the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure best practice.

Essentially we are looking to minimise threats by reducing and better managing anxiety of members
of the public at DWP sites, reducing the likelihood of incidents occurring.

The contract, one of the largest integrated security contracts to be awarded in the UK, will combine G4S’s security technology with professionally trained G4S security officers across the DWP estate, providing an innovative and cost effective solution to meet the customer’s needs. This is consistent with our values of Security, Service Excellence, Innovation and Teamwork.
