Is warrant work getting more dangerous?

We aim to keep ourselves safe when assisting warrant officers in their duties, but this isn’t always as easy as it should be.

Most people are glad to see us because they have a lock problem and have hired us to solve their problem. But when doing warrant work, many people are not always pleased when we turn up at their front door and then proceed to open said door for the warrant officer to carry out their job.

A recent warrant we attended ended with our locksmith getting smashed across the head with a claw hammer by a rather annoyed customer. The said locksmith then spent four hours in hospital getting stitched up before being released back into the community.

Scary stuff for all involved, and all of us at Delyn Locksmiths learnt from the experience. We do this type of work day in and day out and it can sometimes be repetitive and we all take things for granted regarding safety. But this episode has taught us to expect the unexpected and keep an eye on what’s going on around us. You only have to take your eye off the ball for a second for it to become a very bad day.
