When it comes to theft control there is no better solution than a well-trained, alert security guard.

Our Loss prevention officers work in retail environments to prevent shoplifter theft as well as theft from store employees. Our Officers maintain a presence in the public retail space, monitoring shoppers and employees alike for unusual behaviour.

We work with a diverse group of retailers to provide loss prevention security by well trained personnel in customer settings, especially high end luxury boutiques. Appearances can make a difference with each client’s locations. We can staff the officers in a suit, standard uniform or a more casual polo look.

Every security officer is screened to meet individual customer needs. Our Security personnel are highly qualified, responsible professionals who take pride in their work.
