Kingston Council

Kingston upon Thames London Borough Council, which styles itself Kingston Council, is the local authority for the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames in Greater London, England.

Gurkha Security Services has been successfully serving Kingston Borough Council since 2022. Our team’s expertise in handling high footfall areas and diverse security requirements has made them an invaluable partner for the council. In addition to providing security services, GSS has also taken on the responsibility of managing and training new staff members, many of whom were transferred under TUPE regulations. 

Through regular training sessions and close collaboration with the council, GSS has implemented robust security solutions that have significantly improved safety and security in Kingston. Our proactive approach has not only benefited the council but also gained recognition from other stakeholders such as the Kingston police. One of the key reasons for our success is our commitment to excellence and dedication to providing professional security services, simple as that.
