ISC secures key operating license to provide security and crowd management solutions in Singapore

Integrated Security Consultants (ISC Group) reports that ISC Singapore has been awarded Security Agency license status, in turn enabling the company to offer its full portfolio of security and crowd management services in the country.

This important milestone is another step forward on the journey begun when the company expanded into Asia back in 2013. Since then, ISC Singapore* has been supporting DTZ Facilities and Engineering Pte with the recruitment and selection of the 24/7 full-time site security team for the SGD $1.33 billion Singapore Sports Hub, which opened earlier this year.

The new license enables ISC to offer a portfolio of services across Singapore, including event and venue security provision, crowd management, safety planning, crowd safety resources, consultancy (in such areas as venue layout and design, deployments, risk assessments and operations), event and project management, venue site crew management, security guarding and an array of corporate security solutions.

ISC is well known for its security and safety work with clients including Wembley National Stadium Ltd (London) and the American National Football League.

For its part, and following this latest development, ISC Singapore is now meeting with industry professionals looking to enhance their security and crowd management provision in Asia, and particularly in Singapore.

“We’re delighted to continue further developing our service provision for the events industry in Singapore,” enthused ISC Singapore’s senior director Roger Hooker. “We very much look forward to making a positive contribution, offering specialist advice as well as plenty of practical hands-on support for our clients.”
