We are pleased to name Gough & Kelly response drivers Gary Jones and Wayne Osborne joint recipients of our Employee of the Month award for March. Thanks to the actions of both men, a break in that could have ended in disaster for one of our Leeds city centre clients was dealt with quickly and safely.
Following a single intruder alarm activation that came through to the GK 24/7 monitoring centre, Gary arrived immediately at the site in question. Observing that something was amiss, he requested that a second response officer be dispatched to help him carry out a full internal patrol.
Wayne, who was in the vicinity of the site at the time of the alert, arrived quickly and together the two men discovered an intruder ransacking the building. After restraining the man, they called for immediate police assistance. Both men went on to testify in court, leading to a successful conviction.
Sean Morgan, control room manager, said: “I am so pleased to have such diligent employees representing Gough & Kelly. It is always pleasing to get the right result for our clients. Catching this criminal in the act not only stopped any theft from the premises but was also followed through with a conviction.”
We introduced our Employee of the Month initiative in February as a way of rewarding members of staff who have gone above and beyond in the name of duty. Recipients receive a certificate and an additional day of annual leave.Return to the News page
