Is a Security Company registered with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority Registration Number 199798 as well as registered with the South African Intruder Detection Services and the South African Insurance Association and South African Security Association – what does the above mean? Well it most certainly means that we are a stable and legal entity and are by no means a fly by night operator.

With our vision of being committed to the provision of services to clients thus ensuring quantifiably higher levels of service and professionalism.

Vision / Mission Statement

Our business philosophy is to fully understand and meet the exacting requirements of our clients. We do not regard ourselves as exclusively an Electronics company, rather as security specialists with the ability to design cost effective security solutions to suit each client’s particular circumstances. We place a great emphasis on developing long-term relationships based on trust and integrity and aim to establish a win-win relationship between our company and clients.

In achieving this win-win relationship, we realise that our clients have three particular needs:

That we develop an in-depth understanding of their business & security requirements.

That we provide solutions tailored to meet those requirements.

That our levels of service-delivery meets exceeds their expectations

While we maintain a knowledge base of leading-edge technology, our aim is not merely to sell “the latest and greatest” technological innovations to clients, but rather to provide long-term solutions to your individual business needs.

Due to the nature of our industry, it is not possible to give you the assurance that problems will not arise from time to time – but today’s problems are handled today!!!


G&P Security core product and service offerings comprise the full spectrum of security electronic installations, from closed circuit television (CCTV) and alarm systems right through to electric fencing, intercoms and gate motors.

Our clients enjoy the assurance of a totally independent and dedicated Control Room, which is SAIDSA compliant and enables us to offer a unique operating mode with simultaneous SMS alarm signals received by the client directly at the same time as the signal is received by the Control Room.

Our focus is protection and personal service. It is, we believe, the very foundation of our existence and the most important reason for G&P Security Reaction to be in business.

G&P Reaction Response

All G&P Security Reaction vehicles are monitored via satellite tracking through and are replaced every two years; all areas of coverage have a backup vehicle should the assigned one need repairs. The drivers of these reaction vehicles are all accredited armed reaction officers who have successfully completed advanced safety and emergency driver programs. All drivers are trained up to the required standards as required by P.S.I.R.A (Private Security Regulatory Authority of South Africa) and equipped with their own bulletproof, weapon, torch and all relevant self-defense products available.

G&P Security Community Interest

At  G&P Security Armed Reaction we have a particular interest in the neighborhoods we serve. We therefore take real note of and attend all possible community and policing forums in and around the areas where we operate. It is an important factor in the identification of crime trends and the development, refining and implementing, of suitable pro-active new crime prevention strategies. The owner also stands as vice chairperson to the local Sector Policing Forum.

G&P providing you with the ultimate in technology

G&P Security makes use of multiple zone alarm systems, the more advanced of these systems is able to integrate to both Access Control and Video Recording systems. The client is consulted extensively to match their needs with the best product for their application and needs.
