Where is Private Residential Security Used?

Residential Mobile Patrol

Our mobile patrols can be customized to provide a level of coverage to suit any budget. Our guards can be assigned to cover routes at random intervals that will keep criminals guessing. Our Mobile Security team can be tracked in real time. This is thanks to our cutting edge TrackTik GPS monitoring technology.

Alarm Monitoring

Heading out of town? Our alarm monitoring team are available 24/7 with a reliable and fast response. When an alarm is triggered, our team responds within minutes, assessing the scene, addressing the cause of the alarm and providing a detailed report of their findings. No matter where you are, you’ll instantly know what triggered the alarm, and what our guards found at the scene.

On-Site Uniformed Security Guard

Available on short notice, for long or short-term need, our security guards can be dispatched to provide a constant and highly visible deterrent to crime. As condo break-ins continue to spike across Canada, our guards can be deployed to monitor access points, garages and other vulnerable sites.



Hired Blackbird for their security and concierge services. I am constantly impressed at the professionalism and quality of their team. Their guards are polite, respectful and have handled stressful situations with compassion. I would recommend Blackbird to anyone looking for security solutions.

We have been using Blackbird Security concierges for over 2 years at our building and I have nothing but great things to say about them. The residents have given us great feedback about the concierge personnel Blackbird has placed at the front desk and I would highly recommend this company to other stratas and property management companies.

Gordon MC
Stratawest Management Ltd.

I hired Blackbird Security several times for suit and tie client events, special open houses and concierge services. The concierge team members were always very professional and had excellent deportment. You can tell Blackbird puts a heavy emphasis on customer service training with their staff. Dealing with Blackbird for the past 5 years has been a pleasure and I will continue to use and recommend their services to other property managers and strata council members.

I highly recommend Blackbird for any security needs. They provide patrol services to a property I manage in Vancouver and they have been able to reduce trespassing on the property as well as increasing the security of the building. Their customer service is top notch.

We appreciate your outreach. Your staff has been doing an excellent job inspecting and promptly reporting any issues or potential security threats to the building. We value our current cooperation and look forward to maintaining a strong working relationship moving forward.

Josh Kempf
General Manager, Sandman Hotel Winnipeg

Blackbird security provides us with ongoing weekend overnight security services. All the guards are very well trained and go above and beyond the call of duty. Great customer service, great communication. Love getting the daily shift reports via email for easy review and tracking. The regional manager responds to questions and concerns extremely quickly and is always available to chat and communicate info to the on-site staff.
