Security Coverage When You Need It
Don’t need a dedicated security guard at your site? Blackbird’s Patrol Security team provides all the value and coverage of a full-time guard, without cutting corners on the service. Our patrol security service is offered 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, acting as frontline prevention against theft, vandalism, and other threats to the safety and security of your site. Thanks to their industry-leading training and flexibility, our patrol security guards are utilized by a growing number of clients across Canada
Why Are Patrol Security Services Important?
In an era of tight budgets and rising crime, we learned that many of our clients need a robust security presence, but their budget doesn’t allow for a full-time security officer. We created our patrol security service to fill this need, providing a proven barrier against theft, vandalism and other threats to the security of a site. Typically deployed on foot, our security guards are trained to respond to any scenario swiftly, while adhering to your existing security protocols. Following the completion of each patrol, you’ll receive a detailed report from the scene
Typical Duties of Patrol Security Staff
Strategic, randomized patrols of the site

Frontline emergency response
Where are Patrol Security Guards Used?
Blackbird’s Patrol Security Guards are commonly deployed in spaces where a static security guard isn’t required. Instead, they patrol pre-determined routes around your property, watching closely for incidents, signs of forced entry, or anything out of the ordinary. They’re highly effective on their own, or deployed alongside a static security guard. Examples of sites commonly covered by our patrol security guards include:
Our dedicated foot patrol team ensures a highly visible security patrol presence around your site when it’s needed most. They are equally adept at conflict resolution, and adopting a customer service-style approach to enquiries from the general public. Our clients love the flexibility and service standards of our foot patrol team, with the service custom-tailored to fit their unique needs and budget.
Need a rapid response at your site? Our vehicle patrol team are second-to-none. Whether their presence is required at predetermined or on a random basis, our vehicle patrols can be tailored in frequency to match your security needs and budget.
We get it, you can’t have staff on-site 24 hours a day. That’s why our Patrol Security team can be deployed exclusively to respond to alarms and other specific triggers at your property. All incidents they find are logged in a detailed Incident Report, so you’re fully aware of the situation and how it was handled. Thanks to our TrackTik technology, you’ll even receive images of the site as our guards found it.
Had the pleasure of hiring Blackbird Security for my industrial portfolio which covers over one million square feet in area. They have been amazing to work with; great communication, detailed reports and always go above and beyond their scope of work to ensure a proper job has been completed. Would recommend this company to property managers who want to ensure first class service to their tenants.Industrial Property Manager, ONNI Group
Blackbird Security's staff have been professional, reliable and on time. In cases where staff have been sick, Blackbird has always made replacements to ensure we have the coverage necessary. They are quick to respond to calls and available anytime during the day/evening.Director of Corporate Services, Duncan BC
Our business association employed the services of Blackbird Security to ensure the safety and security of our business members and community in southwest Vancouver. We appreciated the professionalism displayed by the staff and guards, as well as the prompt attention to our concerns and emails. Nightly patrol reports were filled and staff kept us informed and updated on issues in the district as required. Can highly recommend Blackbird Security to businesses or associations requiring security services.Executive Director, Marpole Business Association
Blackbird Security is an outstanding integrated security provider. They supply professional and reliable security guards for a couple Downtown properties of ours in Edmonton, Alberta. Their mobile guards are very responsive, fast acting, professional and thorough during their patrol checks. With combining their guard man-power and mobile fleet, we have peace of mind that our site is always safe and secure. With my two Downtown locations, I need to be able to trust that my security provider has not only our back, but our valued tenants as well. With that in mind I have no doubt that they will be able to provide you the same top notch service for any of your security needs.Commercial Property Manager, ONNI GROUP
