Our History

Crime Prevention Services Ltd was founded by Geoff Farrell in 1982, Karen's late husband. The business began operating in Deeside, and year on year continued to grow significantly in employees and clients. A second office was opened in Clitheroe to help assist with the ever-growing demand on installing and maintaining security systems. In 1989 a purpose-built office was built on the Westbound side of the A55 as you approach into Chester, replacing a derelict farm and local eyesore. This building, following additional renovation and expansion, is still our Head Office today. In 2001, Geoff had an Alarm Receiving Centre built, which was a pinnacle moment for Crime Prevention Services Ltd, as we were the first company in Wales to achieve the coveted NACOSS Gold accreditations for all disciplines of security. A security company with their own Alarm Receiving Centre is not common.

Crime Prevention Services Ltd went on to win a contract with a National Supermarket Chain which grew each department within the company significantly and put the company in a position to tender for more national contracts, a trend which endures today.

In 2006 the CPS family were hard-hit by the unexpected tragic passing of the company founder, Geoff Farrell. Karen stepped in after Geoff's passing and took over the business, becoming the Managing Director.

Year on year Crime Prevention Services continues to grow. Karen has carried on Geoff's vision of long-term clients and employee retention and continues to be committed to providing bespoke electronic security and fire safety systems to a range of clients, some of whom we have been working with for decades.
