The use of personal protection equipment, such as radios, GPS trackers, and torches, is permitted by security guard services. It is against the law in the UK for security personnel to carry knives or other weapons, including guns. Security officers are equipped with a variety of approaches and are trained to safeguard both individuals and businesses. Even though they are not permitted to do so in the UK, security guards are permitted to use handcuffs to aid arrest suspects. They have also received training on the appropriate use of force.
