RETAIL SECURITY SERVICES, STORE DETECTIVES UK. Retail Security Many of Adapt Security Manned Guarding td Officers have a background working in customer-facing roles. Where we deal with the public at large – busy Mums, Dads and their families – we know how important taking a softly, softly approach can be. Our uniformed Officers are skilled at dealing with large crowds, letting thousands in during the sales or evacuating entire shopping malls in an emergency. We also deploy covert store detectives, oversee control room operations, manage car parks and provide First Aid.
