Government and Municipal Security
Public Sector Security Guards
Governments and Municipalities play a vital role in our lives, yet their properties face increasing security risks. Blackbird Security is proud to play our role in keeping them safe, offering flexible government security and municipal security solutions that uphold the safety of the public, while remaining conscious of public sector budgets.
Why are Government Security and Municipal Security Important?
The high profile and frequent footfall of public buildings makes them a target for criminals and individuals with more sinister motivations. In these high-profile spaces, it’s vital to meet this threat with a robust and effective security response.
Across Canada, Blackbird Security has been privileged to help safeguard the essential services that keep our towns and cities running smoothly. No matter the size of the office, building, park or public area, our team will devise a custom security plan that’s devised to meet and exceed the unique needs of the client, while upholding our rigorous security standards.

Where are Government and Municipal Security Staff Used?
Our specialist public sector security guards are stationed in a variety of settings across Canada.

Mobile Patrol Security
This cost-effective security service involves our guards patrolling pre-determined routes on a randomized schedule. Our mobile security guards can be deployed on bicycles or cars, relaying their positioning in real-time through our innovative TrackTik technology. These patrols can be scheduled, randomized or set to respond to alarms.
Concierge Security Services
Our concierge security specialists provide safety and security for your office or building 24 hours a day. They will monitor your building cameras, safeguard keys and enforce building policies diligently. Our concierge experts receive specialized training that allows them to administer first aid assistance and act as fire marshals in the event of an evacuation scenario.

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
