Gardner Security

Gardner Security Ltd was founded in 1980 by James Gardner, after a stint with the RAF and a career as a Police Officer with the CID in London. He chose Chichester because he'd got to know and like it when he was based at RAF Thorney Island.

For 27 years, the company was a landmark in The Hornet and for a short time move to Westhampnett Road. In the Spring of 2010, Gardner Security Ltd merged into Christie Intruder Alarms Ltd (CIA) and took their name, and moved their operations base over to CIA's headquarters in Waterlooville.

Although the name of the business and its location have changed, nothing else has. Just as James did, CIA's ethos is based on providing a personal service and the right product for the individual situation at a competitive price.
