Gough & Kelly


Escalating levels of crime and vandalism in our towns and industrial estates, along with the perceived increasing threat of terrorism, have resulted in a higher than ever need for experienced, trustworthy and professional security guard hire in both the public and private sectors.

The manned security guard hire sector is forecast to grow 12% over the next five years. Statistics show that there are already more security officers than police officers, and a physical presence will always be the greatest deterrent to a potential intruder.

Whatever your requirements in this area, our security team can provide expertly trained personnel for every job, 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and we have a proven track record in delivering a highly professional service.

The main day-to-day problems that persist and require support from our officers include theft, vandalism, travellers and arson. But not all of the guard’s duties are focused around crime prevention. Aspects of their time can be utilised to add value to the service provided by incorporating additional duties into their role. These include reception, post-room, first-aider, fire marshal, weighbridge and escort duties; all of which support the smooth running of your company.

Accreditations & approvals

We adhere to all practices relating to the management, staffing and operation of manned security guard hire services on a static site in line with BS7499 and the Private Security Industry Act 2001.

We are accredited on the ACS (Approved Contractor Scheme) with the SIA (Security Industry Association) for static security officers, mobile patrols and key holding, which means you can be confident that our processes, procedures and service meet the highest standards.

A bespoke service

We design a customised service to meet your security needs. An initial risk assessment will help us to establish the extent of the service you will need. Every site is different, and we will tailor the solution to suit you and your business, providing exactly the right number of guards with the particular skills you require.

We offer short and long-term contracts comprising a wide range of services, all of which carry the Gough and Kelly guarantee of professionalism. They include:

• Static security officers
• Mobile security patrols
• Door supervisors
• Key holding
• Remote CCTV monitoring
• CCTV operators and control room operators
• Car park management
• Gatehouse security officers
• Retail security officers

Mobile patrol services

Gough and Kelly Mobile provides a wide range of services, including key holding and alarm/CCTV response, mobile patrols and lone worker protection/escort services.

Our patrol officers can also provide you with a key holding or a ‘lock and unlock’ service, which can include turning off all unnecessary electrical equipment, securing all windows and fire exits, locking and alarming the premises.

Our mobile patrol service provides a complete low-cost security solution, to help maintain business continuity. The spot checks provided by our mobile patrol service help prevent criminal activity, as there is no set pattern followed for the patrols. Swipe points are placed at agreed inspection points, which our officers read with PDAs, allowing a full record of site patrols to be kept. Our patrol officers perform regular external and/or internal mobile patrols, opening and closing of your premises, as well as attending to alarm activations.
