What to Look for When Hiring a Security Guard Company in Calgary

To some, hiring a private security company may seem like an unnecessary expense, but consider exactly what you stand to lose if someone breaches your security. If you want to ensure your business’ safety, there’s no way around it – you need to invest in top-quality security. We understand that this can seem like a bit of a daunting task, so to help make choosing the right security company that much easier for you we’ve compiled a handy list of what to look for when hiring a security guard company in Calgary.

Qualifications & Training

While a security company may boast years of experience, it’s definitely worth looking into whether their guards are actually certified or not. Most security companies actively showcase their and their staffs’ training and qualifications on their websites and should have no problem providing proof of such upon request. Any security guard company that avoids displaying their qualifications or refuses to show proof of their certifications should be avoided at all costs.

Experience & Reputation

When it comes to security companies, experience and reputation go hand in hand. Who would you rather have protecting your business’ valuable assets and information? A reputable, local firm that’s been around for a while, or a brand-new company who may or may not have the necessary skills to safeguard your business?

Customer Reviews

Practically everyone has a smartphone or at least one device capable of connecting to the internet, so there’s no excuse not to conduct some quick online research on a company you’re looking to hire. A company’s online reviews can provide eye-opening insights into past clients’ experiences and what you can expect when working with them.

Range of Services

When looking to hire a security guard company, you need to understand and consider the different kinds of services they offer. Do you want static guards? Mobile patrols? Entry-point security? Before deciding on which security company to work with you need to carefully consider the specific types of security services your business needs, then find a company that can cater to such needs.

Stick to Local Businesses

If you’re still not entirely sure of the type of protection your business needs, it’s best to consult with a smaller, more local security company. Not only will they be able to respond faster, but local security companies also tend to have a better understanding of the area and have experience in dealing with any applicable local threats.

365 Patrol was a pleasure to work with. Our guard arrived early, was courteous, and did a great job for our private event. Communication with 365 was quick and easy, and they didn't have any trouble providing service on short notice. Highly recommended.

Hired Patrol 365 to monitor our condo building during some renovations as we were experiencing a number of security related issues. Everyone at 365 Patrol was great to work with. Called them on a Sunday afternoon and they were ready to start that same evening. They did an indepth walk though of the building with me and asked lots of good questions to understand what exactly we were looking to get out of their services. Each night they promptly arrived right on time and provided updates throughout the night on any incidents. An absolute pleasure to work with and will definitely be a repeat customer if we have any additional security issues.

Incredibly impressive service! Mohamed put together a security package for us on very short notice and executed it perfectly. Mohamed met with us in person less than an hour after our initial call and set things up on the spot. We couldn't be happier with how things worked out. Highest possible recommendation!

365 Patrol Ltd. was hired to guard and protect our secured terminal and yard. 365 Patrol Ltd. was extremely professional, courteous, very accommodating and always reliable. Our interactions with the guards and employees were always very pleasant and they complied with all security requirements and our strict security protocols. They will be our first call should the need for security arise in the future. Highly recommended security firm!

We used 365 Patrol for a temporary work site in Calgary that needed nightly and weekend security for approx 2 months. We were very pleased with the service, and they exceeded our expectations. Mohamed and his team were professional, punctual everyday and even offered extra security ideas to make our site extra secure. Their rates were very reasonable and we will definitely use them again. Highly recommended.

We organize an annual outdoor festival and 365 Patrol was hands down the best security service we have worked with! Mohamed did a full site walk through with us and helped us identify the best areas to place the guards. For both nights, all guards were on time, professionally dressed and were super friendly. Mohamed was professional and very easy to communicate with for the duration of working together. I couldn't be more pleased with 365 Patrol and will definitely be hiring them again next year.

I used this guard service for a very important client that we were unable to provide security for at the last minute. I called Mohamed Siad late last night after calling many other guard service companies that were not able to provide a guard for us at such short notice. Mohamed was very professional and followed up with me this morning to make sure everything went smoothly. The guard that he dispatched arrived early to site and called me to confirm what we were needing him to do. He called me again this morning to check with me before he left site. I would highly recommend this guard service to anyone! Their customer service will exceed your expectations!

Very impressed with 365 Patrol, they were very good to deal with, professional and responsive. They showed up on time and gave us a great rate on their service! We ended up switching security companies this year and were very happy with the decision. We will definitely use them again!

We needed a security guard at the last minute. 365 Patrol was the ONLY company of the many that were called that responded in a timely manner to our request. We asked for a plain clothes guard to arrive the next morning. People come and go from our building at random times all day long and we required the guard to be the official greeter at the door as he was screening people. He was polite and unobtrusive. When not busy, he was engaging and pleasant with staff and endeavoured to fit in with the surroundings so that it was less apparent that we had a guard in the building that day. I would highly recommend 365 Patrol and would not hesitate to use their services in the future.

365 Patrol was great to work with. The security guard who looked after our event was great: always early and focused on watching over our event equipment. We were able to make changes to the security times needed last minute, which was very helpful. We will definitely use them for our future events.

At our annual event we needed a security company to look after our equipment and tents during the night. We hired 365 patrol and were very pleased with the professionalism and service they provided. We found it was very easy to communicate with them and they were able to work with our tight deadline. We highly recommend them and will continue to using them going forward.

We recently worked with Mohamed and 365 Patrol on an over night job for an outdoor event we were planning. Not only were they professional and accommodating, they were absolutely wonderful to deal with during the planning process. They showed up early, checked in before they left, gave me a progress report and then their main office followed up after the event to ensure things had gone smoothly. I will be using them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for security services.

We found them very curtious, friendly and professional and would highly recommend this company.I have worked in other buildings where the security guards seemed unapproachable or lazy, and am very happy to say that this is not the case with this company at all. I would highly recommend them and will be referring anyone who is looking for a good security company to them.

365 got me out of a terrible bind! When our office fire panel stopped working and I was told we would need to have someone in the building 24/7 to do fire watch until it was fixed, I panicked. It was 3pm in the afternoon and staff were getting ready to leave for the day so I didn’t know how I was going to find someone to stay in the building overnight. Luckily, Google helped me find 365 and I was able to get a guard to our building by the time we were closing at 5pm. The guards were friendly and professional. When we did have building emergencies arise, the guards were very considerate of my time and polite when they called me for assistance. All in all I was very pleased with the service and would use them again (although I’m really hoping for no more issues where I would require guard service)! :)

My condo building needed security services following a break and enter. 365 Patrol was called after 10pm and they had a guard at my building and actively patroling by midnight. The guard was professional and the service/communication was excellent. Out of three "24 hr" security companies called that night, 365 was the only one who called back.
