About Us


WYE SECURITY SOLUTIONS provide a range of security services to customers throughout Monmouthshire, Gwent, Gloucestershire and the South of Herefordshire. The company was founded in 2016 by Managing Director Andy Element who has gained over 20 years of experience within the private security industry and has worked within the NHS security sector and in events and operations management for large security companies. Through this diversity, he has gained valuable experience and recognises the importance of providing high quality, dependable security services.

The vast majority of our operational staff have trained with and been hand selected by our managing director who is a qualified security industry trainer. This ensures high standards of operation, teamwork, and finely-honed communication skills throughout the organisation. Our operations staff provide a helpful and reassuring service to the client and all of our operational staff are SIA licensed and CRB/DBS checked. They also have first aid qualifications and have completed a rigorous induction programme that includes counter-terrorism training. 

We pride ourselves on our professional customer service and presentation that always exceeds expectations. We liaise with our customers from the first enquiry to conducting a free security assessment and producing detailed instructions before a final debrief. We provide feedback that allows both parties to learn and perfect, while addressing any issues that arise.

The company has gone from strength to strength since it was set up, expanding to cover a larger geographical spread and offering a wider range of services than ever before to both residential and commercial clients.

SIA Approved Contractor Status

Despite rapid expansion in the areas above, we continue to pride ourselves on our professional service, attention to detail and proactive approach which has been demonstrated by our success in achieving SIA Approved Contractor status for the provision of Key Holding and Security Guarding services. The ACS Standard encompasses all aspects of a security provider’s operation. It takes a holistic view of how well an organisation is managed and an approved organisation must demonstrate to an independent assessor, on an annual basis, that it has met defined standards.

Safe Contractor Award

We are also proud to have been awarded the Safe Contractor accreditation as safety is of paramount importance in the work we do. The award is one of the UK’s leading health and safety schemes and demonstrates our commitment to health and safety, and sustainable and ethical practices.

I am very pleased with the service provided. No blow-outs so extremely reliable.

I have used Wye Security for many years now as security at our hunt ball, they give total peace of mind , an area of organisation I can totally forget! From car parking to incidents needing first aid and management of tipsy party goers to the overall security of the site be it a stately home or a marquee in a field, their attention to detail is first class! Total peace of mind.

Thank you very much for all the effort you and your team made to keep this service running smoothly. Especially Dave, who in a way became a part of our team and I am sure a lot of staff members using Bowling Green car park have already noted his absence. I’ll definitely keep in touch with you regarding renewing the service. We will probably start looking into it again late August/early September and discuss the details. Yet again, thank you very much for all your help. I am sure Dave’s presence in the car park and his watchful eye prevented a lot of incidents from happening. It also gave EIG staff reassurance that they are safe while walking to their cars during dark winter afternoons.

Gloucester Cathedral have been happy to work with Wye Security Solutions on major events where extra security staff have been required. The staff are always smart, polite, friendly, professional and excellent time-keepers. The Cathedral will be using Wye Security again and have already booked their services for future events.

Dee Paoletti – Cathedral Events Officer 20th February 2019

We used Wye Security Solutions last year for the first time and we were really impressed. Andy and his team were professional and approachable, a perfect fit for our family festival crowd. When things got a bit heated they diffused the situation quickly and calmly without any extra aggravation. We look forward to working with them again this year.
