About RGP Security

Simon Pridmore & Rick Pridmore RGP Security

MD - Rick Pridmore & GM - Simon Pridmore

RGP Security initially started life in 2009 as an NVQ assessor organisation, specialising in Security & Spectator Safety by Managing Director Rick Pridmore.  Rick has over 20 years in the security industry accumulating a wealth of experience.

Whilst operating as a freelance store-detective and door supervisor, Rick was keen to expand the company.   With his experience of owning & running 2 ninjutsu dojos in East Anglia Rick began a ladies' self-protection course under the RGP banner and recruited a small team together.


In 2012 RGP officially launched as a Private Security Limited Company. One of the first assignments was the prestigious Centre-point Event in London, and other contracts were then secured.  The RGP team once again expanded, recruiting experienced officers with a wide spectrum of experience.


As RGPs reputation as a friendly, reliable professional company grew, they acquired further contracts and venues across the country which extended the company's portfolio further.


RGP has successfully expanded as a Private Security Organisation and in a relatively short time became a Ltd. Company, securing a professional foothold in the local and broader community.

With the continued growth, Rick brought in his brother Simon Pridmore to the position of General Manager.  


Simon brings nearly 20 years of security experience to the Company, having previously been in Loss Prevention Management and Training roles for both the John Lewis Partnership and HMV (UK Ltd).  


He was also Chairman of Cambridge Cam-link Security Network and has spent several years in public space surveillance; being recognised with both a National Award and a Divisional Commanders Commendation from Cambridgeshire Constabulary.

RGP deploy multi-skilled, trained SIA Licensed Officers who will work professionally, ethically and effectively in all areas of the many varied assignments they undertake.

RGP are proud to represent its home town of Ely within the security sector and have developed a strong relationship with the City of Ely Council (becoming a member of the Chambers of Commerce).  Although RGP are based in Cambridgeshire they also operate in their neighboring Counties and further afield.

RGP continues to operate and fulfill contracts within the various areas of the Security Industry, including differing roles of manned guarding, licensed Door Supervision (Bars/Clubs, Corporate & Private Events) and Event staff for Festivals and Stand-Alone Events.

RGP Security places a strong emphasis on 'Investing in people' with its team of dedicated Licensed Guards & Officers, which is why we like to refer to ourselves simply, as the RGP family.
