"I started working with Radius just after I started with Slug and Lettuce as an area manager for Manchester. Since the very beginning I have found them to be extremely professional, great to work with and all General Managers of my sites are also very happy with the stewards they have on their doors.
Their training is thorough and we were all invited to sit in on this before any stewards were allocated to any of our sites. The stewards were specifically chosen depending on area and demographic. The stewards work well in the main with the GM's and if there have been any issues they have been resolved quickly, helpfully and professionally.
I receive a weekly report of any issues in my bars and have regular and open contact with Mark who has also assisted in licensing matters. Overall I am very happy working with Radius and believe they are in a different league to other door companies."

"Radius Security were recommended to me by a colleague who had recently reviewed his security teams in the North West and decided a change was needed and he had introduced Radius successfully into his region. I had concerns over a Security team in place at one of my venues as their actions were causing unwanted attention from the Licensing Authority and Police. There were concerns regarding changing a team in this area but after meeting the management of Radius and seeing for myself the professional set up of the business I took little convincing to change the door. In my experience a door team was a door team and if they minimise the issues at a venue then I was happy in the past. Radius has changed my perception of the door security business in that the approach of this company to customer service, building a relationship with the management team and carrying out continual training with all of their employees has shown that going the extra mile will reap the rewards in customer satisfaction and very little trouble.
In the time that Radius have been controlling the doors at my venues I have had no significant problems to speak of which has been a breath of fresh air in some of the tougher business on the area and the support now that I have seen from Police and Licensing is very much down to the fact that they are also very comfortable with the current security firm. I would fully recommend Radius Security to anyone in the future"

"I wanted to document my thanks to you for the professionalism of the Door Supervisors at O'Neills Didsbury over the weekend. I was out on Saturday evening and spent some time watching and talking with Darren at the main entrance. He was polite, professional, smart & very diligent in his role on the front door, constantly checking customers ID and condition on entry, whilst also monitoring the business both inside and out. I spoke to him for some time without introducing myself and he is most certainly a credit to your company.
Sometimes comment is only made when things go wrong, however it is equally important to congratulate and thank when they go well, and a good job is done.
Please pass on my thanks to Darren for his excellent service."
Mitchells & Butlers – Chris Price
"I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you sooooo much to the door staff who helped me when I fainted on Friday night. Not that I remember much but the female Door Supervisor with blond hair was lovely and looked after me. It will remind me in future to eat before I go out drinking. Huge thanks for keeping me safe."

"please pass on my thanks to Darren, Kristopher and the others for assisting myself and Dave outside a venue in the early hours of Sunday morning following an outbreak of fighting when another venue kicked out.
We were vastly outnumbered despite requesting further patrols and the lads did a great job at stopping people gathering around us and kept us safe whilst we dealt with the incident, i know Darren ushered a female away who in all her arm waving managed to smack me in the mouth ( accidentally i believe) but i think his words were "just leave the lady to get on with her job and she'll sort it".
Its always comforting as a police officer to know that not everyone out there wants to fight us and that many door staff will step in and assist us as much as the law allows them and Radius has some great examples of this."
GMP – Danielle Riley
"Its not often that I put pen to paper to give positive feedback, but I believe true credit should be given where it has been earned and is definitely due.
Whilst it is widely known that violent crime in licensed premises has significantly reduced in the city centre over the last twelve months, incidents at Revolution Bar have been practically non existent.
I consider that this is largely due to the influence and disposition of the Head Door Supervisor.
He is clearly a leader who sets his own high standards on his team. This results in Preston Revolution Bar operating a safe, secure premise for patrons to attend and enjoy. Ultimately the venue polices itself.
May I therefore request that my thanks are passed onto him and this note is placed on his personal record."
Preston Police – Sgt John Lovick
"I would personally like to state that I attended an incident at Revolution Bar last night with a very intoxicated female.
One of the members of doorstaff - Lee who I believe is also the Area Manager of RADIUS security was dealing with a female, the courtesy, level of care and attention he showed to this female was well above the usual standard and extremely appreciated by her friends and noted by passing members of the public and indeed myself attending.
Whilst working city centre on numerous occasions I have noted the quality of the door staff at this location and the manner in which they treat customers even those that are ejected.
I hope this very positive feedback finds it way back to the Revolution Bar."
Cheshire Police - Pete Goring
"I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to a member of your staff, for showing professionalism and using his initiative to make the people of Preston safe.
John was working as a Taxi Marshal when he identified a drunk & vulnerable female in the City Centre. He used his initiative to ensure that she got home safely, not only putting her into a Taxi but also paying the fare.
During the same shift, the staff employed at the rank assisted Police officers when a fight broke out. They intervened by detaining three males until the Police Officers arrived and then dispersed the crowd.
These actions could have possibly prevented a serious incident occurring and I am grateful for these kind actions. It is good to hear that in our City Centre we can all work together in reducing crime and to make Preston a safer place"

Since the opening of Revolution Wigan, Radius Security has delivered an excellent and outstanding service. I feel their commitment to delivering the highest standard of professional Door Supervisors is exemplary.
I have witnessed first hand, the training, time and effort that they invest into the company and its employees, to ensure that all staff employed by them are of the highest quality and fully trained.
The Door Supervisors carry out their role with the utmost professionalism and their desire to operate and maintain a safe, secure and welcoming environment for all customers is of paramount importance, which is reassuring and also comforting for a Manager.
The communication structure throughout the company is first class and whoever you speak to; you will find them approachable, knowledgeable and also friendly, therefore making any queries or questions you may have, easy to answer and quick to resolve.
Radius were given a clear, concise, realistic brief prior to the launch of Halo, which I have to say, they followed to the letter. Warrington is a notoriously difficult town to trade in, plus we were launching a 1700 capacity club, which had effectively been closed for 3 years, in a town where the next biggest venue is 400 capacity.
It was a critical part of the strategy that we had a professional and flexible security provider that could work alongside us on this project to ensure we left nothing to chance. Radius have worked closely with us and the local authorities to ensure that we set the bar and raise the standards of the security provision in the town by leading example.
We have used Radius as our door team for over five months, and I would like to take this opportunity to place on record my appreciation of the service supplied.
We have had a consistent team in this period, who understand my requirements and expectations, and the service they’ve supplied has been excellent. They’re always punctual, polite, well presented and handle all situations in a professional manner.
We receive regular contacts with both Area and Operations Managers and they’re always willing to assist with any issues that arise.
In conclusion, I have used numerous companies in my time in this industry, but the service I get from Radius is exemplary, they’re a thoroughly professional organisation who understand the needs of the site and are willing to listen and work together to ensure that my customers and staff have an enjoyable time in a safe environment.
I am happy to recommend Radius Security (UK) Ltd to all.
Hog’s Head, Didsbury
I have worked in and around nightclubs and bars for over 15 years now and I was introduced to Radius when I took over as the DPS of my current venue in January 2009.
Over the time since my arrival I have been thoroughly impressed by the approach and the professionalism of the company from the Managing Director down to the staff themselves. The organisational skills within the company, I believe is second to none. The approach taken towards the importance of the license and the safety of that license has been as much impressive as it has been refreshing. I know of the close links with the Police and Licensing that Radius prides itself on and I believe that this puts them in good stead for any role that they are put forward for.
The manner in which they maintain the lines of communication to the venues and the manner in which problems are resolved has given not only myself but my staff a great deal of confidence towards the whole company to provide a service which everyone is happy with and everyone can work with on a night to night basis.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Radius Security as I believe they provide an excellent, thoughtful, professional and organised service to the benefit of the venue, the police and the longevity of the licence.

Mark, just a few lines to ask that you pass on my thanks for the efforts that the Door Supervisor team have made at the "Off The Wall" venue in St John Street.
Prior to Radius taking responsibility for the security at the premises there were serious concerns as to the running of the venue. This was due to a large extent to the type of persons visiting the premises. As you will be aware the situation was brought to a head on Christmas Eve 2010 when a large scale disturbance occurred and Police closed the venue.
Since that time the premises was subject of a Police action plan as a last chance, and part of that plan was a change of Door company. Radius took over in January 2011 and since this time have been responsible in no small part for a turn round in the venue. We have seen a drop in the number of violent offences and calls about antisocial behaviour. The type of person now visiting the venue has changed, with most of the old "troublesome" element not now visiting or not being allowed entry into the premises.
This has required a professional approach by the door supervisors to achieve this in a relatively painless way. Credit must go to the Head Door supervisor, Ben Smallwood who has overseen this process. I am aware that he has personally been on the receiving end of threats whilst overseeing the changes but has always handled these situations in a calm and professional manner.
Please pass on my personal thanks to the team for a job well done.
