Alarm activations can happen at any time – day or night, rain or shine – meaning it is not always easy or possible to rely on family, friends or staff to assist at your property. CIA’s Key Holding & Alarm Response offices – which are manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, by fully-trained Alarm Response Operatives – serve in and around Gloucestershire including: Burford, Cirencester, Chippenham, Malmesbury, Marlborough, Nailsworth, Oxford, Stroud, Swindon, Tetbury, and Witney.

Key holding can also be used to help protect your workforce, by using our service to lock up your property or accompany lone workers off the premises at night.
