A number of Blackbird Security personnel are placed at various stations under a tent where a large crowd of people are entering an event. Some security guards are checking bags, others are keeping an eye on the crowd.

Where are Event Security Staff Used?

Risk Assessment

Each event carries an element of risk that needs to be factored into the organizer’s plan. A security site assessment, or physical risk assessment, is an evaluation conducted by a security expert that includes actionable recommendations on how to safeguard the site and prevent risk. Not only is safety important for guests, it’s also important to cover yourself against any potential liabilities.

Uniformed Security Guards

Events ebb and flow and there’s always a small element of chaos involved on the day. A uniformed security guard is your frontline defense against crowd incidents, gate crashers, or anyone causing trouble within the event. Our uniformed security guards are experts at diffusing challenging situations thanks to their customer service training and security experience.

Mobile Patrol Security

If you’re running an outdoor event, our mobile patrol security team will ensure the integrity of your perimeter and prevent anyone from gatecrashing. Our event team follow pre-arranged routes on a randomized schedule in highly visible security vehicles. They’re flexible, they’re efficient, and they’re cost-effective.



The Blackbird team was unbelievably helpful and professional at our company’s event. The team showed up every single time sharp and ready to tackle any tasks assigned to them. Everything was simple and organized. They lead you through the whole process so you understand what services they are providing you as well as what you need from them and how they are going to deliver it. Thank you Blackbird and Ranko for the best experience.

It was a pleasure having Blackbird Security on board with our event this year. Our Pharmacy Skits Night welcomes 500-600 students and faculty each year and is held in a large venue. From the feedback I've received from our attendees, all the guards were respectful and attentive to the crowd. We look forward to continuing to work together in the future and do not hesitate to recommend the company to colleagues.

I hired Blackbird Security several times for suit and tie client events, special open houses and for concierge services. Their security guards were all presentable and professional. Dealing with Black bird has been a pleasure and I will continue to use their security services. Their security training is excellent and their employees are all great to deal with. Blackbird is a fantastic security company.

We had a small private event and needed suit and tie security. Brett and his team did an excellent job. Good professional company, will use them again.

I wouldn't trust any other company than Blackbird to take the stress off of event hosting.


Great service at a recent event we held at our residence. Security guard stayed longer than our hired time slot to ensure the property was secured.

Blackbird Security gets 2 thumbs up from me and my family. We unfortunately lost my Dad suddenly last year, and because of the COVID regulations planning a funeral was harder (than normal). We hired Blackbird to help maintain social distancing between guests, contact tracing, and to make sure masks & sanitizer were available for everyone during our outside Celebration of Life for our Dad. Thank you Blackbird for helping us celebrate my Father's life safely. My family appreciated your hard work.

Industry Leading Training Through our Blackbird Academy

As the role of security professionals continues to evolve, Blackbird Security saw the need to train our staff to handle any scenario in a calm and reassuring manner. That’s why we created our pioneering Blackbird Academy training program. 

Delivered via our own in-house team and exterior experts, our comprehensive training program encompasses areas like St. John’s Mental Health Training, Indigenous Awareness Training, and Conflict Resolution. If your current security provider doesn’t offer this level of training, perhaps it’s time to upgrade.

Modules include:

Customer Service Training 

Verbal and Written Communication Training 

Incident Report Writing 

Access and Crowd Control Training

Incident De-Escalation Training

Advanced Security Training 

WHIMS Training 

OFA (Occupational First Aid) Training

Above all else, our guards must hold a valid security license for the province they operate in.
