IF WE ARE SAFE,
WE ARE PEACEFUL...
At the entrances and exits of our homes, workplaces, during our visits to shopping centers and in many other places, the fact that private security guards meet us at the door and pass through the security controls allows us to feel confidence and humor. Because the concept of trust is a concept that also represents peace.
Evlerimize, işyerlerimize giriş ve çıkışlarda, alışveriş yaptığımız alışveriş merkezleri ziyaretlerimizde ve daha pek çok yerde, özel güvenlik görevlilerinin kapıda bizleri karşılamaları, güvenlik kontrollerinden geçmemiz, güven ve huzur duymamızı sağlıyor. Zira güven kavramı huzuru da temsil eden bir kavram.
Not only for work and home environments, but also for us to have fun peacefully especially in entertainment areas can be ensured by the controls at the security points. Among the powers of Private Security Guards are issues such as passing through the sensitive door of those who want to enter the areas where they provide protection and security, searching the tops of these people with a detector, passing the items through the X-ray device or similar security systems, asking for identification at meetings, concerts, sports competitions, stage shows and similar events, and funerals and wedding ceremonies.
Depending on the current conditions, the powers of Private Security Guards may also expand. For example; As explained in Article 7/c; (Amended: 23/1/2008 – 5728/544 Md. ) Arrest in accordance with Article 90 of the Criminal Procedure Code, as described in Article 7/d (Amended: 23/1/2008 – Article 5728/544. ) They also have much broader powers in the field of duty, such as arresting and searching persons for whom there is an arrest warrant or conviction.
In social events,natural disasters such as earthquakes and in case of distress,they can enter the workplaces and residences in the field of duty. On the other hand, they have the authority to take into custody items that constitute a crime or may be evidence during searches or that may pose a danger although they do not constitute a crime, provided that they immediately notify the relevant law enforcement authorities. In order to protect the person from a danger to his body or health, he has the authority to arrest, to ask for identification in public transportation facilities such as airports, ports, stations, stations and terminals, to pass through the sensitive door, to search the tops of these people with a detector, to pass the items through the X-ray device or similar security systems.

Tepe Savunma and Security Systems are also voluntarily involved in many corporate social responsibility activities with the aim of adding value to society, protecting and keeping it safe . The corporate social responsibility activities developed jointly with AFAD and AKUT on the basis of being prepared for disasters and climate crises and the voluntary "Tepe Hayat Team" consisting of Tepe Savunma employees are valuable indicators of the efforts in this context.The basis of Tepe Defense and Security Systems' understanding of "security"; It is based on the understanding of "protecting people, society, nature and the future as a whole". "Private Security Service" is offered with the goal of a sustainable world.
