Short description of the contract or purchase(s): Historically the integrity of scenes were staffed/secured by police officers; however over recent years this role has successfully been undertaken by an appropriately qualified service provider. Services are required to carry out scene guarding services for periods of time whilst the scene is required for forensic retrieval, searching and assessment or simply to protect risk to life.
The objectives of this Contract are to release police officers from the task of guarding major Scenes, back to their front line activity. Initially such Scenes shall be staffed by police officers and/or police staff in order to allow the Contractor adequate time to organise deployment of Staff.
Applicants should note that the duration when services may be required will be dependent upon the nature of the scene and its complexity.
A Scene that requires guarding may be varied in location. Historically these have included, but not limited to private dwelling houses, flats, nursing homes, hotel/guest houses, public houses, streets, parks, beaches and in open countryside. Each Scene provides its own individual challenge to the Customer who has to assess its parameters and to provide suitable security.
The Contractor shall work closely with the Customer(s) to adopt a proactive approach to ensure that Services meet all requirements.
Wherever possible the Customers will agree common processes and procedures. Where necessary the Contractor shall adapt its services to meet the needs of the individual Customer.
The Contractor shall take cognisance of the need of the Customer to work within stringent guidelines.
