We understand their role in providing a visible deterrent to crime, that’s why our uniformed security guards are expertly trained to respond to threats and protect your property with the highest standards of professionalism. We offer both regular uniformed security guards and tactical uniform security guards depending on your needs. Next time you need to hire a uniformed security guard, Canada’s number one security company is standing by to assist.

Why Are Uniformed Security Guards Important?

Crime flourishes when environmental conditions allow it to, and most petty crimes are crimes of opportunity. Uniformed security guards address both of these issues, acting as an effective visible barrier while adopting a customer service-based approach for customers and visitors alike.

When you station a uniformed security guard at your property, it sends a powerful signal to criminals that their activities are being monitored, and security guards are standing by should they attempt to engage in criminal behaviour.

Real-Time Reporting

Many of 1Northwest Security’s most popular services utilize the power of TrackTik technology for real-time reporting. Based on GPS tracking, this app allows our security guards to work smarter, more efficiently, and cover more ground. Via GPS pings, clients can watch the progress of security patrols in real time via an app or live dashboard that also includes critical details like pictures and reports from the field.

We Are Always Here to Help Serve Our Community by Providing the Best in Class Security Service.
