Clients have hired us to provide security guards for strikes, insurance scene protection, shopping malls, alarm & fire system failures, outdoor product displays, crowd control, long weekend crime deterrence, indoor and outdoor events involving alcohol, and more.

We supply our guards with any security and communications equipment that may be required for your site, such as flashlights, hard hats, safety vests, radios, and cell phones.

Bylaw Enforcement / Parking Control

Many facilities are plagued with parking problems caused by unwanted vehicles and/or vehicles parking inappropriately. No-parking zones and handicapped parking spaces are constantly abused. A parking enforcement program can solve this problem. Our security guards can be registered as municipal bylaw enforcement officers and issue tickets or authorize the towing of vehicles, as best suits your situation.
