Pakistani Christian Hero Security Officer saves drunken man from committing suicide off highway bridge



Haroon Yousaf on duty at Ardleigh Green

A security officer from an Ilford based company was involved in a remarkable life saving incident whilst on a patrol in Romford, when he prevented a drunken and depressed man from jumping off Ardleigh Bridge over the A127. He is being hailed as a super hero by management staff from the engineering company who are coordinating the bridge replacement project, for his quick thinking and calmness in a very difficult situation.

Haroon Yousaf who has been employed by A. A security for over 9 years is a committed and hard-working individual who rarely misses a shift when healthy. Although he has been suffering for some time with a painful cyst in his stomach region he bravely endures his work without complaint.

During the early hours of Saturday 25th November, whilst patrolling around the current Ardleigh Bridge, Haroon noticed a man with one leg planted on the bridge and another leg dangling from the other side of the bridge, it was clear to haroon the man was attempting to jump off the bridge.

Despite having never dealt with a potential suicide on his shift before, Haroon swiftly followed protocol for the site. He first contacted

the other security officer on site a Mr Ahmed and asked him to contact our control centre, whilst he kept the man committing suicide engaged.

Mr Ahmed than contacted A.A. Security control centre who asked Ahmed to immediately contact the police and to inform the senior operative for the engineering clients at the site, of the emergency.

In the meanwhile Haroon Yousaf, described how he kept the the man attempting suicide from jumping, he said:

"I tried to make the man think of positive things in his life, I asked him if he had any family and explained that his death would cause them great panic. I told him despite how he feels at the moment family and friends love him and need you in their lives so that together you strengthen one another.

"I also told him about how God had saved me from great depression after my mother passed away and it seemed to work he calmed down and started to listen to me."

"Something changed however and at one point he just started to shout expletives at me, but I ignored him. I told him it was fine to vent his frustration at me just as long as it helped him calm down."

When Mr Ahmed his security partner and several men arrived on the bridge behind Haroon he used gestures and his eyes to ask two of them to go to the other side.

Two employees from our clients crossed the road but not before they had placed cones on the road, preventing any traffic from getting to an area where a potential jump or fall from the man attempting suicide, might cause additional deaths or injuries.

Once the site foreman got o the other side he and Haroon exchanged looks, Haroon kept the attention of the man they were attempting to save by talking and looking at him, when the foreman ran to grab the man from around his waist from behind, Haroon followed up and grabbed the man from the front. Together the two man pulled him away from danger and held him to the ground until the police arrived.

Mr Ahmed returned to the site immediately and called the A. A. Security control centre as soon as the man was safe. He also immediately began to write up the Incident report, ensuring that it was kept for evidence purposes.

When an A.A. Security Services response team arrived on site they asked if Haroon wanted to remain on site or leave with full pay and Haroon decided to remain. His commitment to A.A. Security has been labelled as 'unrelenting and total' by Director Juliet Chowdhry.

Wilson Chowdhry, Director of A.A Security Ltd, said:

"The intelligence and foresight of Haroon Yousaf has to be complimented. Not only did his quick thinking save a drunken man from committing suicide that may well have simply been a momentary depressive state related to the drink, but his actions also saved many others who could have been involved in a very dangerous vehicle incident and consequential collisions.

"His recall of our company protocol and the investment we put into training him effectively helped guide his actions in what was a tremendously brave and well coordinated reaction to a new and very dangerous situation. It proves that inward investment can really yield professional dividend.

"The manner in which our security operatives and our client operatives teamed up to save so many people is simply a textbook delivery of life saving services."

SIA licensed Construction site security officers from only £9.00 per hour



A. A. Security Ltd has a proud history of providing specialist security services to a range of industries for in excess of 23 years. Our innovative approach and bespoke design have made us a must have company which has ensured our client retention stands at 95%. Not bad for an industry tarnished with a reputation for poor quality.

One of our major clients is HOCHTIEF (UK) Construction Ltd, who are part of a huge global business network. The project we are protecting is the Ardleigh Green Bridge Installation for Transport for London. The contract requires us to provide staff that control ingress and egress to a constantly developing site during the daytime and to prevent all access during night shifts. All in all the contracted hours on site are 252 hours per week.

The Quantity Surveyor on site expressed great concern about the previous contractor who had failed to provide the right quality of officer. Falling asleep on site, dubious records for patrols and several thefts on site caused huge concern. Moreover the officers had a very poor understanding of the English language - good language skills are a must for a site with a large constantly changing workforce.

Since the initiation of our service the client has remarked on the quality of our uniforms and deployed staff. The Quantity Surveyor said:

"The uniforms worn by your officers are clean and appropriate. Security officers wear all the correct PPE including hi-vis jackets in orange, not yellow, and look presentable. Every officer deployed so far has been able to converse well and is very competent. Not only do they have security training but LUCAS training which compliments our work - this has inspired us with confidence. We also note that A.A. Security officers are extremely punctual."

To ensure patrols are conducted regularly we have installed a real-time patrol manager system on site - a facility few security companies can offer. This equipment affords the client 24 hour access to records of patrols and our hourly evening call records to the control centre. This has gone a long way in resolving the doubts about patrols taken by security teams, a product of the previously removed security contractor. What's more the improvement in service provision has impressed the client so much they have already agreed to get us started on a new contract.

Together Stronger - Peace vigil builds stronger community preserving our security and safety



With less then 24 hours till an important peace vigil in Ilford A.A. Security Ltd were asked to produce a security and risk survey and then to protect the event.  

 

Ilford has been subjected to several police raids as part of the London Bridge terrorist attacks with several suspects arrested. Local religious and community groups organised this vigil in collaboration, to remember the innocent lives lost and condemn the brutal attacks. It is their hope that the solidarity shown will be a beacon of hope to all and a chance to restore peace and local morale.

A large leaflet drop of 5000 flyers promoting the event were distributed in areas where terror suspects were arrested in police raids following the terrible London Bridge attack.  Moreover the event was held only days after a retaliatory attack on Muslims who had completed prayers at a mosque in Finsbury park.

As part of the security plan A.A. Security ensured that police and other statutory services were notified of the gathering. This included redbridge licensing team and the CCTV central office.

 Not knowing what type of reception an event like this would have it was agreed that we would use our close protection services for the key religious figures involved in the event.  Four visible security officers were also involved in protecting the event by way of controlling access to the town hall steps and ensuring that visitors were mustered into areas that were agreed and provided reassurance to participants at the rear of the event and a community interface.

The event was held without any untoward incidents and has been hailed as a success by the Council and other bodies.

Now we at A. A. Security feel we can say we have contributed to the wider safety and security of the people of London and wider in the UK.

A.A. Security honours martyr Police officer PC Keith Palmer at peace concert



On the 22nd April 2017, A.A. Security was privileged to be chosen to Event plan and protect a peace concert held before 10 Downing Street for slain national hero PC Keith Palmer.

Mr Palmer gave his life protecting Londoners during an attack in the capital on 22nd March 2017, that killed 6 people and injured over 80 more.

British Pakistani Christian Association collaborated with minority faith leaders from across the country to hold a 'London Against Extremism' rally in honour of PC Keith Palmer, one month after the terrible attack.  Invited guests included Imam Dr Taj Hargey, Nazi Holocaust Survivor Dr Martin Stern, Ranbir Singh of the Hindu Human Rights Group and Alan Craig Christian Campaigner to name but a few.  To make things difficult a procession to the Policeman's memorial at Pall Mall also had to be organised where a wreath of flowers was to be laid.


Due to the current risk state of 'severe threat' our Director Wilson Chowdhry had to meet with Senior Police Officers to devise a safety plan and emergency plan.  We held little hope that the plans would be approved as it is extremely rare that such events are approved in the wake of acts of terror such as the Westminster Attack.

By ensuring the plans were comprehensive and liaising with the Police at every juncture we gained approval for the event.

Hundreds joined the successful event which completed without incident.

Wilson Chowdhry, Managing Director of A.A. Security Ltd, said:

"Planning this event required a number of skills.  We had to risk profile visitors and risk assess the event ensuring that an emergency plan and Security Plan was in place and an exit strategy ready to be utilised should things go wrong.

"Due to the financial limitations of the lead group we had to ensure that all of the above could be produced without excessive costs for our clients. 

"The vent was successful and so I guess we did our job right.  Now we are ready to provide the same quality of service for other clients."

Ilford Town Centre security beefed up during Easter Market



As Easter draws in many Borough's incorporate specialist markets to increase trade and commerce into their town centres. 

Markets bring in a variety of new products and particularly niche items that enhance local shopping experience.

One such market in the Redbridge Easter Market which ran from 10th April to 13th April 2017.  Their hours of operation are from 12:00 - 17:00 and included a bedding stall, mens and womens fashion stall, a variety of food stalls, face painting and much more. 

The organizers hope to introduce a regular one week market in future months.

Breaking down and reconstructing a market is a timely and effort-driven process and most stallholders fear their vulnerable physical constructs, provide little protection for the valuable products and equipment they store inside.    Moreover the marquees themselves are prone to vandalism.

This is were A.A. Security came in...

As a security provider with over 24 years experience and with our head office based only a few seconds from Ilford Town Centre, we were of course a first choice provider for security for the venue.

Our evening security officer patrolled the centre every 30 mins and reported several crimes that would usually go unreported, such as the applying of stickers on railing and streetlights by women who ply their trade at night.

We also received confirmation from our clients that our security efforts noticeably reduced crime in the town centre.

Joel Kyari, one of the organizers for the event said:

"A.A. Security were amazing.  Not one stallholder experienced any loss or damage.  Moreover local Police have informed us that they had the quietest evening streets in the town centre for the duration of our event.  

"Apparently having a visible security deterrent reduces crime fairly significantly.  Our choice of security provider and our quality of market traders has developed a high level of appreciation and we are confident that we will secure a license for a more permanent market.

"Great praise is deserved by A.A. Security for their sterling work that has enabled to fulfill our objectives."

British hooligans wreak havoc in local pubs!



 


Britain has a bad quite embarrassing history of football hooliganism.  Fortunately FIFA noticed that the hooliganism in France during the recent Euro 2016 campaign was triggered by Russian hooligans.  Besides their behaviour was captured by many media groups. 

However, this does not exempt us from the realization that such violence is a problem here in the UK too.

For years property owners have been scared to walk out of the door if their own home town team loses.  Fearful that over inebriated fans will take out their anger on the innocent homeowner.  

More than 100,000 English and Welsh fans travelled to the Champions League and Europa League matches outside of England and Wales.  British fans were amongst the worst behaved fans during these tournaments.  Moreover in pubs and other locations showing these football matches across the UK crime stats increased dramatically after a loss and sometimes during a win due to over exuberance.

AA Security can protect your properties in the UK.  Whether it is through a deterrent such as a CCTV installation,  Uniformed security officers around vacant or operational properties during a time of heightened excitement, or door supervisors in your pubs and clubs, we can provide the necessary expertise to reduce, report and respond to crimes of this nature.

England are about to embark into the knockout stages of the Euro 2016 finals.  The games will get harder and if history repeats itself we could be in for some disappointment soon.  Don't get caught unawares make sure you have the right security for your situation.
