Teesworks Sees Month With Zero Reported Intrusions

The first month with no recorded intrusions on the Teesworks site since records began has been hailed by Operations chiefs.

Hartlepool-based business NE Security Ltd took on the contract for security at the Teesworks site a year ago.

Their work alongside Teesworks teams sees staff confront criminal intruders, urban explorers and trespassers to prevent crime, but also keep people safe from the potentially grave dangers posed by ex-industrial infrastructure and hazardous materials.

Teams carry out more than 10,000 vehicle security checks every month.

October saw no recorded intrusions or unauthorised access incidents on the vast Teesworks site.

This is the first time this has happened since records began in 2017 – and came at a time when the site was seeing some of its busiest activity in the ongoing demolition programme.

David Garside, Director of NE Security Ltd, said: “It was a great honour and achievement when NE Security Ltd was awarded the security contract for Teesworks after a successful tendering process in December 2021.

“We knew it would be a challenge to keep the site secure due to its size and many complexities, but we have worked hard since day one to implement robust security procedures across the whole site.

“Almost a year on, we are very proud of the significant steps we have made towards Teesworks site security. NE Security Ltd staff, in conjunction with Teesworks management, have worked tirelessly to reduce crime and the opportunities to commit crime, and to reduce unlawful intrusions onto site.

“This has, hopefully, helped numerous site projects remain on schedule and proceed without interruptions or delays.

“All of this has been made possible thanks to the hard work and dedication of the local men and women that make up the NE Security Ltd Teesworks Security Team.”
