CHICAGO | One of Chicago's most experienced security guard companies has changed its name to Intellex Security.
Formerly Intell Security, Intellex Security will continue to bring more than 90 years of experience in law enforcement and security to retail, trucking and construction companies as well as hotels and conventions.
"Due to a conflict with a company that has a similar name, we decided to avoid confusion with that company," said Intellex President Joseph Kelly. "The name's changed, but we still bring more than 90 years of experience in the law enforcement and security field."
Kelly, along with Patrick Murray, who spent 28 years with the Chicago Police Department having climbed the ranks to detective, started Intell Security, now Intellex, in 1989. Kelly began as a cadet with the Chicago Police Department in 1965 before being assigned as a patrolman. He was promoted to detective in 1970 and eventually became a sergeant in 1976.
By 1978, Kelly became lieutenant. In 1990, Kelly was promoted to Captain before retiring in 1997.
"It kind of went hand-in-hand," Kelly said of starting the security guard company. "Because of my experience and contacts in the Chicagoland area, we started to provide security guards in an area where it was severely needed."
Intellex Security has been hired to work such major Chicago events as the Chicago Blues Festival, Celebrate on State Street, the Taste of Chicago, and construction performed for the Chicago Transit Authority and for a variety of conventions. Intellex has also provided security for special events hosted by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and several Fortune 500 companies, including Walgreens, United Airlines and Hilton Worldwide.
"We provide a wide array of services, such as off-duty law enforcement, armed security guards and unarmed security guards," Kelly said. "We've worked with retail companies, trucking companies, on construction sites, hotel security, convention security, travel group security, industrial security and more."
Kelly said Intellex Security customizes its coverage for each client individually.
"No event is too large or too small for us," he said. "Our strength is managing people. We know how to put the right people in the right places."
