Myth vs. Fact: What You Should Know Before Hiring Private Security

You can never be too careful. We’ve yet to encounter a situation where this isn’t true. If you’re considering security services for yourself, your property, proprietary information or business property, you’ve probably heard myths about security guards that could be giving you pause. At Cancom Security, we want to clear up these misconceptions so they don’t keep you from protecting what’s important to you.

Security Guards Aren’t Trained: MYTH

Our security guards are trained above and beyond government requirements and far exceed the industry standard. Why? We want our guards to be ready for any situation with a cool head, broad knowledge and impeccable standards. We know it’s more than just the safety you’re hiring. You’re also hiring a representation of your brand and reputation. We make sure when you hire our private security, you get the very best the industry has to offer.

Security Services Are Limited: MYTH

At least it’s a myth for Cancom Security. We know there are other security companies that only offer patrols or stationary guard services. We’re so much more than that. Our goal is to provide our communities and clients with the security services that best meet their needs. When you work with us, you have a comprehensive list to choose from that includes:

  • Security guard services
  • Parking enforcement and signs
  • VIP close protection
  • Mobile security
  • K9 detection services
  • Private investigative services
  • Intelligence services
  • Loss prevention
  • Security systems
  • First Nations security
  • Cottage patrol and protection
  • Residential security
  • Traffic control

If you’re interested in any of these services, we’re happy to talk to you about your specific situation and provide an accurate quote.

Only the Wealthiest of People and Companies Can Afford Security: MYTH

Like anything, the kind of service you’re requesting dictates the price of something. We have security services that range in price, and we work with clients and potential clients to deliver the kind of service you expect at a price you can afford. We don’t only work for wealthy clients because we know they aren’t the only people or businesses concerned with safety. Contact us to talk through the services you need. We always do our best to meet your security needs in a way that makes sense monetarily.

Security Guards Don’t Have Customer Service Skills: MYTH

We understand this is a fact for a lot of security companies in business today, but not at Cancom Security. We have five corporate values that we live by. The first is our commitment to service. We know our clients depend on us for the protection of the most valued assets, and that includes their reputation. We treat them with the utmost respect and care.

We foster an environment of honest communication. We know gaining your feedback is the only way to ensure we’re operating at the highest level of integrity and offering world-class service. We work to capture the voice of our clients as often as possible.

Security Guards Should Always Be Honest and Ethical: FACT

Our corporate values are the pillars on which our business is built, two of which are honesty and integrity. We demand both by hiring guards who are inherently honest with a high standard of integrity. That's why we're the gold standard of security companies. We have strict guidelines for honesty, integrity and sound judgement.

Hire Peace of Mind

We know you’re hiring the peace of mind that comes from knowing you, your loved ones, your property and your business have an added layer of security to keep them safe. That’s what we provide at Cancom Security. Reach out to us at 1-877-847-9910 or contact us here any time to discuss all your security needs.
