Career Development At Blackbird Security

We provide numerous in-house training programs through Blackbird Academy to equip our security team members with the skills and knowledge they need to safely navigate security across all industries.

Amir is spearheading our in-house Use of Force - Handcuffing & Baton Certification course, available for Blackbird Security tactical, loss prevention, and condominium security guards.

What is Loss Prevention?

Loss prevention refers to any element of a retail security strategy that aims to reduce a business’s loss of inventory. These losses are typically related to theft, either by employees or external business visitors and customers. These efforts help protect a business’s bottom line by safeguarding inventory and cash. 

We take pride in providing the best loss prevention services in Canada through our uniformed security guards, undercover loss prevention personnel, and tactical security guards.
