IGS Investigation and Guarding Services is a privately owned company built on the philosophy; 

we do not extend ourselves beyond our means but seek to build long term partnerships with our Clients based on the key principles of respect, trust, honesty and professionalism hence our mission statement 


Professional Service Delivered Through Excellence. 


We aim to understand the culture of our customers in order for us to meet their business needs and this strategy has proved successful which has seen IGS grown considerably since 2009 to become a market leader in the provision of bespoke security services within the Durban and surrounding areas. 


We at IGS, offer a professional, discrete service and as well as a need for a clear business understanding, we are acutely aware of the importance of providing a quality service where we work hard to maintain our reputation and that of our Clients,  based on uncompromising integrity and the highest ethical conduct. 


Relationships are founded on mutual respect and we believe our success in the industry illustrates our strength in proving an innovative security solution and at the same time understanding and meeting the expectations of our clients.  We are aware that "complacency breeds contempt” and therefore seek ways of providing innovative solutions and support to our clients.


We not only have an experienced management team but also have an in-depth support mechanism at all levels which ensure that businesses operate efficiently and effectively.  The success of IGS has allowed us to re-invest into critical support areas such as our centrally located Head Office based in Red Hill which is the central hub of the company and where our 24/7 control room is operated.  


IGS works firmly in the ethos of "Ownership, Responsibility and Accountability” and our staff are given the support and tools to do the job.


As well as the need for a clear business understanding we are acutely aware of the importance of providing a quality service with partnerships and relationships founded on respect and trust and believe our performance standards are gauged in the delivery of excellence of service.


We believe there is a requirement to provide an innovative approach to the service provision and to add value over and above the norm. This is demonstrated through the manner in which we continuously strive to look at ways in which our clients can benefit from the services we provide to them in developing new ideas through the shared partnership approach.

With all of our Clients, the key element at the heart of our service provision is integration.  This places as much of the service, including management and supervision, in local hands but relies on external management for professional advice, technical support and reactive response including escalation procedures.

Our offsite support teams actively liaise with the onsite teams to help with queries and to tackle any issues before they occur.  As we are centrally located, members of our support teams are also able to attend site as quickly as required.
