Highly professional company, used as stand in security when Cove UK took over Solway holiday park while we were setting up to make a in house security team. Highly recommend

Adrian came highly recommended to us by a number of partner organisations. He met with us quickly to discuss his services and agree what could be put in place. Since AJ Security have had a presence on our site, there have been no further incidents and residents living around the site feel reassured knowing they are there. Communication has been excellent throughout. Would highly recommend.
