CCTV in a vehicle is really easy to install. Our sister company SURE Transport offer CCTV kits for your vehicle, this includes vehicles such as a car, van, emergency vehicle, taxi or small coach. The kits come in options of 2 or 4 cameras, however, we can build custom kits if needed with more cameras.


 Our kits are plug and play, you simply purchase the kit and all of the equipment can be screwed into position and the cables simply click into the back of the DVR for recording onto either a hard-drive or SD card.


Violence/Burglary/Robbery in Nottingham

When on the receiving end of violence, it is important to be prepared. Especially if the violence is ongoing or if you are putting yourself into aggressive/dangerous situations. In the UK there are six million lone workers which represent approximately 20% of the UK workforce.


Lone workers can be the target of violent crimes when working in mental health or health care generally. The Suzy Lamplugh Trust recommends the SURE24 SG390 personal alarm as part of any kit when working alone. This alarm sounds 120dB at the single push of a button which could be the difference between an attack being carried out or help being alerted.


We often supply estate agencies, support workers, nurses and many other professions along with people who jog or have to walk home at night.
