Protecting Your Site from Travellers

As we head into summer, the number of travellers setting up camps on private and public spaces across the UK is set to rise as it does year on year. Here at Marpol Security, we have our own Trespass Response Teams operating across the country, ready to clear your land of unwanted visitors before they can get settled in.

A rapid and robust response

A tactic commonly employed by travellers is to arrive under cover of darkness to set up their camp before sunrise, as it makes it more difficult to remove them. They may also move in on weekends, when they know many commercial premises are unstaffed. Our Trespass Response Teams are based locally and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Once we are informed of travellers arriving on your land, we can have a team there within minutes.


Repeat offenders

If your land is frequently occupied by travellers, you can take advantage of our subscription service. This transparent and pre-arranged response package includes a free, no-obligation risk assessment and report that includes our bespoke recommendations for preventing the return of travellers to your property. We will agree our removal tactics with you ahead of time, so that our Trespass Response Team can engage any unwanted visitors to your site without further consultation. This ensures that your land and assets are protected as quickly and efficiently as possible.


K9 Units

Few things are more likely to deter travellers than a team of trained security dogs and their handlers. Our canine units are one of our most effective tools for removing trespassers from a site and moving them away from your land.


Court-appointed bailiffs

To remove travellers from your land in a robust and effective manner, we ensure that every step of the eviction process is conduct in line with the law. We provide court-appointed bailiffs to serve eviction notices and if an amicable, early departure cannot be achieved, we will then proceed to forced eviction. This helps to minimise your costs and limit any disruption to your business.
