About FGH Security

FGH Security provide world-leading manned solutions for event security and crowd management.

Fed up with poor standards and how security companies treated people, Managing Director Peter Harrison founded FGH Security. Peter places a large emphasis on changing perceptions of the security industry, making sure staff have a great place to work, and ensuring customers are continually impressed.

They are friendly and focus on customer service, meaning situations rarely escalate and people interacting with staff are more likely to cooperate amenably. This all leads to fewer incidents, and the public feeling safe and reassured.

All staff are fully trained through in-house trainers and mentors to handle all types of situations according to best practice. This means minimal disruption and maximum safety, allowing clients to run their businesses as effectively as possible regardless of what happens.

Events coverage includes student unions, bars, clubs and festivals, such as Manchester Pride and Kendall Calling.
