Alarm Response Management CIC

We are a not-for-profit organisation

Meet The Founders...


Stewart Brown - Director


Stew was a Metropolitan Police Officer but was injured soon after joining forcing his early retirement. However he eventually passed the medical for the RAF Police. Stew served in the UK and Europe where he received commendations for work to capture spies in Germany before fatherhood and the purchase of a house forced his leaving military service. On returning to civilian life he spent several years investigating offences with the Post Office where privatisation issues saw him become active in business development.


Stew then moved into Private Investigations before an opportunity to assist in the development of a Neighbourhood Warden Service took him into building community safety projects where he has spent the last 15 years. His efforts led to him receiving an Outstanding Achievement Award for leading the only team  to eliminate the UK's highest value crime of metal theft. His training in business development and marketing assisted in building ARMGB. As a not for profit organisation Stew produced a business concept which restructured the profit element which produces a funding stream for community projects.


Stew's hobbies include several giant scale radio control model aircraft and ancient history. Amongst his several archaeological discoveries is a Roman military establishment in Lancashire which had previously existed only as a legend. Stew especially enjoys being a grandfather.


Patrick Kavanagh - Non Executive Director


Retired after 32 years law enforcement service and has 11 Chief Constable's commendations for his work plus other awards. Pat has a wealth of experience of investigating crimes and incidents, managing and conducting covert surveillance, preparing cases, attending court and giving evidence, as well as serious and repeat case reviews.


Pat achieved the degree in Master of Education (UEA) based on organisational culture and learning. Pat is a Restorative Justice Facilitator. He continues to work in partnership across the statutory and voluntary sectors retaining contacts at all levels in the Public, Charitable and Military Uniform Services, as well as the wider Criminal Justice System, to reduce the need for repetition in the work place. Pat is qualified and authorised to conduct public space surveillance.


Pat was seconded to Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary where he reviewed statistical information; writing and editing reports and briefing papers for Chief Officers and Government Ministers.

Pat was a district commissioner in the Scout Association.



We want you to understand where we have come from and our passion for keeping people safe.


The project is not a "quick fix" but a long term attempt at changing the way public security, community safety and Policing is carried out in Britain. ARMGB was established as a Community Interest Company (CIC - which is a not-for-profit organisation) in response to central government allowing a new type of company, limited by guarantee, to operate in a similar way to a charity. A CIC can operate as a charity and still make a profit providing it benefits the community. Our profits will be returned to the community to fund projects like equipment for schools, road safety, drug awareness, or to support charities or organisations that make a difference in your area.
