Our mission statement is "Operating with Absolute Integrity" and this is reflected in our mutual trust, open and fair dealing with our clients and our security personnel.  The Directors are hands-on involved in the everyday running of the business and lead the rest of the team in Being Byers. Our brand values direct our everyday decision making and actions and they are:

Dependability – A trustworthy, honest, realistic and reliable partner for our clients and personnel and is not shy of going the extra mile. We are approachable and aim to please.

Care – We have a big heart and are not ashamed of showing people how much we care. We work with people from all walks of life but share the same vision – a desire for everyday safety so that we can enjoy life with our loved ones. 


Passion – We have contagious energy for our work and projects and we believe it is this fun, outgoing, spontaneous and young at heart spirit that lends positive word of mouth to our growth. Part of our successful and long lasting relationships is our relational approach that complements our dedication to the security trade.


Boldness – We embrace change and jump into projects with full force by getting our hands dirty and exercising courage on various levels. 


Class – The classy touch makes us refined and professional, approachable, transparent and humble because we have nothing to hide and we are proud to BE BYERS.
