Who are we? Dean Talbot answers his phone whether it rings at 3pm or 3am.

It’s been just over 10 years since Dean and Lucia Talbot started their business and they sit down to reflect on the rollercoaster journey of emotions and excitement that they have endured over this period. Over this time they have seen the best of humanity and the worst. “We have had two children and employed a number of staff who we also think of as part of the Talbot family. Sitting here 10 years later, we can honestly say that we wouldn’t change a thing,” Dean said. He still has the same passion now that he had 10 years ago when he started Talbot Security Group. Dean and Lucia first met in Ashburton 19 years ago after Dean returned from doing security work overseas. He had been a soldier in the New Zealand Defence Force for nine years before that. “In 2008 the decision was made to form Talbot Security Group, a professional security business, in our home town, we have not looked back ever since.” Dean put together a business plan and after getting knocked back by several banks, he spoke with a business mentor who put him on to Shane Calder at the BNZ in Ashburton. Shane was great to deal with, open to Dean’s ideas and gave them the bank loan that started it all. Dean employed his mate Corbie and they set about finding clients and promoting TSG. Dean is the face on the ground, the first port of call, while Lucia keeps the security

group’s administration and compliance in shape. They are proud of the business they started all those years ago that has developed to meet the needs of their local community. They are also proud of their local roots,

their team and the new services they are developing. On April 1, 2009, TSG conducted its first patrols. TSG has remained on duty, 24 hours, seven days a week from that day.

How we started Patrolling is the core business of Talbot security group and entails physically checking buildings, houses and other assets around our district. During patrols they can encounter anything from lights on, unsecured gates and doors, to finding offenders breaking into properties. No two nights are ever the same. The night-time patrols of Ashburton reveal a side of the town only a few see. Dean says private security companies fill a need in the community as people seek reassurance that they and their homes and property will be safe. While the night-time work brings potential hazards, the other services bring variety. In 2009, due to escalating violence within our community, the decision was made to issue our staff with stab-proof vests and these have been mandatory for all TSG officers to wear during patrols ever since. 2010 saw the next natural progression in their business, with the addition of specialist training courses. Dean is passionate about passing on his accumulated knowledge and skill in martial arts training, teaching the victims of crime to defend themselves. Another course that Dean added to his repertoire, was the Hostile Environment Awareness & Travel Safety (HEAT) course. Dean has won international contracts to train Humanitarian Aid workers heading into hostile environments. He says it is rewarding work and he sometimes hears

from his students about how they used his techniques to good effect. In 2014 the decision was made to branch out into alarm installation, alarm servicing and alarm monitoring. This is the electronic division of Talbot Security Group and it has grown ever since. Professional training and development

keep his officers up to date with law changes and the latest security practices. His staff complete at least three months’ training with an experienced officer before operating solo. Their company is the only Mid Canterbury member of the New Zealand Security Association; the association provides au-

dits and guidelines for its members across the country. Dean is regularly contacted by the public to report suspicious activity. When this occurs, they do advise people to contact the police via 111, but when their responsibilities to their customers allow, they will always attend.

What we offer The real value-add for TSG customers, is 100 per cent peace of mind, derived from their passion, professionalism, ethics and local knowledge.

While Talbot Security offer a comprehensive menu of security services, their real point of difference to customers, is in their expertise, training and attention to detail. Each day they meet the constant challenge that is safeguarding people, facilities and valued assets. They understand that one size does not fit all and they work with each customer, to develop a programmed that fits their security needs. Dean is very proud of the level of services he and his team provide and he holds himself and his team to the highest standards of honesty and integrity. They strive for “Perfect execution of the fundamentals of security”. This can only reflect in the quality of service they provide. His team of professionally trained officers will detect, deter and respond to a wide variety of security challenges within the scope provided them by both local and international laws. Their systems are monitored by experts meaning that alarms are responded to immediately, by people trained to cope with whatever they find. Dean is often phoned by burglary victims who want protection beyond locks. Almost all are distressed that their privacy had been invaded and property taken. Dean offers cost-effective, high value, security solutions. He doesn’t compromise on quality, service, or attention to detail. That’s the value he offers and the reason he has loyal customers to thank after 10, successful years in business.

What does the future look like? Talbot Security Group’s main focus has not changed from when they started, it is still the protection of our home town of Ashburton. That said, changes are afoot at Talbot Security Group’s Dobson Street base. The bottom floor of the building is being renovated to accommodate a new locksmithing service. Lucia Talbot said the service would include key cutting and new vehicle transponders, and staff would be available to give advice about locks suited to a range of situations in the home and office. They will run a mobile locksmithing and key cutting service as well. Training for the staff has increased in response to recent events and they are currently recruiting. In Ashburton, the team must be versatile as they are called upon to not only provide security, but sometimes to dispense first aid, or even de-escalate a volatile situation. Dean‘s company has tracked burglars and detained offenders until police have arrived. Dean is also running more specialist training courses than ever, to meet the increased demand from companies and non-government organisations for staff training. He teaches men and women to be confident about survival in a range of potentially threatening situations and he shows them techniques to ward off attackers. He recommends the courses to individuals as well. The Talbots are looking forward to another 10 years providing great security services for Ashburton.

Mitre 10 Mega Ashburton What led you to Talbot Security? It was the fact that it was a locally-owned business. As well as that, Dean and the team show an interest in our business and take a proactive role in security matters. What are the security challenges/needs of your business? General security, with nightly patrols ensuring our building is always secure. They help with advice and support on all security matters, including incidents of theft. We find Dean very engaging and adds value and confidence to our team They often go over and above our expectations and I would have no problem recommending their services. – Simon Lye

To our valued clients: Without your continued support from the start, we wouldn’t be here today. Our partnership with our clients is the foundation our business is built on.

– Dean Talbot To our staff, both past and present: I gave a quote to the Guardian many years ago: “Sometimes I wonder why somebody would turn up knowing that they may get spat at, abused, or even harmed…” I fully respect each and every one of my team as they continue to do their jobs with constant professionalism.

To the community: Thank you. You are the reason we do this. Our children are growing up in this community alongside yours and we want to make our community a safer place to live.

Thanks for doing a great job and taking care of our premises. Congratulations to Dean and the team at Talbot Security Group on their 10 years anniversary.
