"We provide professional security services & solutions to protect:- people, properties and businesses in the South East"

OLiver Nonis, Managing Director

Established in 2007 in the south east, UK. We pride ourselves in our work, our approach and the commitment to our clients and team.


Our existing infrastructure, experience and central location (Canterbury based) make us an ideal security provider for any clients requirements. Our proven track record of over a decade of experience; providing a tailored security service to a wide range of happy clients.  Clients have recorded a dramatic decrease in complaints against staff; coupled with strong praise from our testimonials which highlight the level of care we implement. We aim to go above and beyond the range of duties to ensure our team are on hand to deal the level of support to ensure a safe and secure environment is maintained in your property or business.

Our existing network of around 200 staff, sophisticated offices and extensive training put us ahead of other providers. We have staff on reserve at all times to comfortably fulfil any requirements. Our in-house training company now allows us access to any training courses required for our staff or for yours, allowing us to work together to ensure all staff have access to the best training available.


We pride ourselves on our professionalism and approachability; we try to be as personable as possible whilst providing an all-encompassing service that tailors to the diverse locations we protect. Our years of experience working alongside larger institutions like the University of Kent, Student Union and various events teams and societies have left us very comfortable providing a safe and consistent service that is adaptive to the needs of large organisations whilst not ignoring the needs of our smaller clients that require a more personal & tailored service.

We were proud to be one of the first Security Providers to integrate the Body Worn CCTV Cameras, the rollout has been a resounding success; our cameras ensure a level of quality not available prior and have also been an invaluable tool for our clients.

We are confident that our existing protocols, training and service exceed the requirements of your business or property. However, we are always striving to improve our service with regular training and assessments and feedback. We are always keen to work closely with you and your staff; to gain feedback and allow the chance to streamline or enhance our security guard service. We pride ourselves on maintaining that level of high service that has allowed us such growth over our ten years of trading. We encourage you to speak to our clients or read some of our testimonials, as we believe our work speaks for itself. We look forward to the opportunity of working alongside you and your ventures.

Some kind words from our clients:

Absolutely brilliant security company, we used Akon as our on set security for Celebrity Haunted Mansion and I could have not asked for a more professional team. We were working in challenging freezing conditions for a week and I did not hear one of them moan once. Not only did they provide top notch security for our location they also went above and beyond their duties and became a central point of our production helping with the logistics of running a hectic remote location. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to any other TV company or indeed any company that need first rate security.
— Lara Bishop Unit Manager - Celebrity Haunted Mansion North One Television
We have been customers of Akon for nearly 9 years now. Akon have provided us with door staff every weekend and for special events as well. The door staff always behave with complete professionalism. They are the first face our customers see and are polite and courteous to all. Always early to start shifts and work well with our own staff to maintain a safe environment for our customers to come and enjoy a good night out! Thank you Oli and all the staff at Akon!
— Laura Toon

A selection of our recent clients:

AKON are a professional and well run company who tailor their service to suit the needs of the client. The quality of the door staff is excellent and this is due to the thorough recruitment, training and management processes AKON have in place. They provide the security provision for our annual summer ball which attracts over 4,000 students, and also provide a team of door staff at our nightclub on a weekly basis. The service they deliver is excellent and I could not recommend them more highly. “
— J McCain - Kent Union
We held a student gala ball for 300 people. This was the first time we worked with Akon Security on this project, and they were fabulous! They kept a low profile, unless needed, but had “eyes” everywhere and were completely in control. The staff created a happy environment liaising with the guests in a friendly but professional manner. I would highly recommend them.
