Simple, Safe, and Secure Uniformed Security
Uniformed Security Guards are the core of our security services at Blackbird. These dependable and flexible security guards are equally at home in retail, the public sector or industrial settings. 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 uniform 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.

I have tried many other security services - they are all the same and subpar at best. I gave blackbird a shot and was very glad that I did. The management is super responsive, learns quickly from regular feedback and strives hard to meet my individual business needs. A refreshing experience vs dealing with the other security companies out there. Would recommend to any business looking for quality service!Store Franchise Owner SDM 2276
Blackbird Security has been performing the role of safety ambassadors for the City of Duncan since the summer of 2019. In this role, they have helped provide a safety presence along the Trans-Canada corridor. Their staff have been professional, reliable and on time. They cover all shifts including any time one of their guards is sick. They are quick to respond to calls and available anytime during the day/evening. I recommend them to anyone looking for professional security guards.Director of Corporate Services, City of Duncan
