Paul Harris and Joanna Stanley from RedBox Security Solutions Ltd.

Joanna Stanley, from Cramlington, and Paul Harris have teamed up to create RedBox Security Solutions Ltd, a bespoke security and risk management service based in Brunswick Industrial Estate, Newcastle.

RedBox Security Solutions specialises in assisting businesses and individuals to manage security risks in their workplaces and homes, offering consultancy and analysis, as well as handling sensitive issues and in-house guidance on security and risk management issues.

Paul is ex-British Army, serving firstly as an infantry soldier in the Coldstream Guards and secondly as a non-commissioned officer in the Royal Military Police (RMP). He has more than 25 years of experience within the security industry.

Joanna, who spent six years in the British Army, work within the security print industry, in the highest-level security environment, while in her spare time has also worked as a special constable for Durham Constabulary.

The duo, who plan to recruit staff in due course, are in the process of entering partnerships with local businesses.

Paul said: “With our military career backgrounds, and our combined knowledge and expertise, we are uniquely placed to advise businesses and individuals about their security requirements.

“This industry is always evolving.”

“We’re looking forward to introducing a range of innovative services to our clients, such as Virtual Security Management – a cost effective alternative to the traditional in-house security function.

“We also hope that our bespoke approach will go some way to assist in professionalising the security sector. We will be providing solutions with an ethical methodology – always with a strong focus on enhancing client satisfaction and employee-partnership interaction and trust.”
