Glasgow City Council

Following a number of years as the security partner to Community Safety Glasgow, SecuriGroup was awarded the security contract to Glasgow City Council in late 2015. Our support for the third largest city in the UK incorporates many key services such as the council office and public buildings, the city’s construction projects, taxi and Homesafe marshal services, and the award-winning events department, Glasgow Life.

Client Understanding

Founded in Glasgow, SecuriGroup has an unparalleled understanding of the city. As a leading UK security organisation, we provide Glasgow City Council with both local knowledge and national expertise. This capability, combined with award-winning expertise, meant that SecuriGroup was able to play a collaborative role in assisting the Council in achieving its goals set out in its 2017 strategic plan.

Glasgow City Council Operational Delivery

Operational Delivery

SecuriGroup delivers over 100 staff per week to Glasgow City Council sites, with an additional 300+ required for large scale events. We also operate a dedicated management team, supported by a 24-hour control centre and alarm response vehicles. Regular weekly meetings with the Council ensure that planning for projects is determined months in advance, ensuring efficient mobilisation and delivery.

Community Safety Glasgow (CSG) work in partnership with SecuriGroup to deliver security solutions to a wide range of clients. CSG are delighted with the partnership, and has found SecuriGroup to be professional at all times whilst delivering a high standard of security service.

Glasgow City Council Mobilisation


SecuriGroup sensitively managed the TUPE transfer of 45 employees from the incumbent supplier, managing one-to-one meetings and providing a single point of contact for each new staff member. In addition, SecuriGroup organised a bespoke training programme for events personnel, utilising many of the staff members hired for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games and 2014 Ryder Cup.

Glasgow City Council Results


Shortlisted with Community Safety Glasgow for the Security Excellence Awards Partnering Initiative of the Year in 2015, SecuriGroup has developed an excellent relationship with Glasgow City Council. Over the duration of the relationship, over £2.5m of contracts has been diverted from Serious Organised Crime Groups and significantly improved the view of construction within the city.
