SECURITY A TOP PRIORITY
Doha Festival City has announced that Teyseer Security has been awarded the contract for security services.
Qatar-based Teyseer Security is preparing to take control of the 670,000 sq.m. building as Doha Festival City prepares to open its doors to the public in February 2017. Prior to the opening, the security company will allocate 70 dedicated security professionals to Doha Festival City for the protection of all visitors and employees, with the guard force increasing to over 100 upon the mall opening. Trevor Hill, General Manager, Doha Festival City Mall, explains, “Our extensive consumer research has shown that one of the primary considerations for our visitors' choice of shopping mall to visit is for a safe and secure environment, which is just as relevant to their overall experience as the leisure, entertainment and retail offering." According to Zaher El Khatib, Business Development Manager, Teyseer Security, “Our security staff will be well trained to create a risk-free environment, to carry out risk assessments in accordance with situations as they may arise and provide peace of mind to all visitors whilst they enjoy this new world-class destination. The 100-strong guard force and team of dedicated supervisors and CCTV operators will include Arabic speakers and female guards to ensure that visitors to Doha Festival City will feel completely at ease.”
