Hackett Security, a St. Louis-based security systems company, acquired Reli Security Alarms in Cape Girardeau, Mo. Reli has provided security services for both residential and commercial customers for more than 22 years. With this acquisition, coupled with the purchase of Secure Tech in Jackson, Mo., in 2009, Hackett Security aims to increase market share with clients in the Southeast Missouri region. The company serves clients in Southern Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee as well as Missouri.


“The Reli acquisition will enable Hackett Security to continue to expand regionally bringing our system design, installation capabilities, and UL listed central monitoring station capabilities to more homes and businesses throughout Southeast Missouri,” said Michael Hackett, chief executive officer and president of Hackett Security. “This not only includes houses, apartments and offices, but also schools, colleges, universities and healthcare facilities. Reli has served the area for over two decades and we look forward to building on their outstanding reputation.”
