Outstanding Personnel, Superior Training

Our people are our product. We take the time to carefully select each individual that possesses our shared values. We then take the time to train each officer to believe they can make a difference and make people feel safe through their first impressions, their smile, their deportment, their manners and their site knowledge.

Our personnel are trained in our own government registered facility, retained through a strong compensation and incentive program, and we recognize outstanding performance with incentive programs and ongoing professional development and advancement. Westguard retains a network of qualified personnel in Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo and Kelowna.

Our teams are supported 24/7 by our C3 Customer Communication Centre and a large network of field support officers and supervisors.

A Tradition of Quality Since 1984

We led the way in quality as the first ISO Certified licensed security firm in North America back in 1998 and are still amongst only a very few select firms in our field that hold this independently audited quality management certification, recognized worldwide.

At Westguard, we believe that if it isn’t measured, it isn’t getting done. Collaborating with our partners, we always strive to exceed immediate local needs as well as meet the global demands of a world defined by increasing connectivity and convergence.

Whatever the security service area, you can count on our expertise and experience to come through for you every time.
