Uniformed Security Guard Services

Uniformed security guards are central to our services at Optimum Security. They provide trustworthy on-site surveillance with flexible, customized solutions for commercial, industrial, government and residential spaces. Our highly trained guards act as a visible deterrent to potential criminals. They are trained to spot suspicious activity, respond to threats, act quickly in emergencies and provide professional and friendly customer service.

Optimum Security is one of the fastest-growing security companies with a reputation for providing service of the highest quality throughout Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario. We offer regular uniformed security guard services along with specialized short-term guarding, fire watch and special event security. We’re ready to assist you with all your security needs to safeguard your property.

Why Is It Important to Hire Uniformed Security Guards?

Most crimes occur because someone took advantage of an opportunity. Unsecured and unmonitored environments practically invite criminal activity. Uniformed security guards are an effective solution as they present an image of capable authority. Having recognizable security on-site makes would-be criminals think twice before acting. Stationing uniformed security guards at your property sends the message that the area is monitored and illegal activity will not be tolerated. If an incident does occur, the guards are ready to step in.

On-site security provides a variety of benefits for business sectors of all types. Aside from staying alert to prevent theft and other criminal activity, uniformed security also provides frontline responses to medical emergencies, fires and other emergent events.

Our trained guards understand and act on emergency protocols to keep people calm and safe while the proper authorities arrive.

At Optimum Security, we understand that your company’s image and reputation are critical to your success. That’s why our uniformed security guards undergo training to assist customers. Oftentimes, the guard is a customer’s first interaction with your company. Our team’s customer service training highlights friendly communication along with the ability to step in and diffuse tense situations before they escalate.

Our building fire panel went down suddenly, and the repair took several weeks to complete. We hired Optimum because of their experience with vulnerable folks in the DTES. Every firewatch guard I met was calm, friendly and with a professional, courteous demeanour, which is exactly what we asked for, and what was best for this building. Every person in the office I dealt with was helpful, reasonable and professional. This should not be that unusual to find in companies, but it is. Really happy we decided on Optimum for this project.
