"Tactical Security" is a term that is widely mis-used by security guard companies to try and up-sell security services that are "tactical" and to represent their personnel as "specialized" or "elite".  Unfortunately; there are no regulations that prevent security guard companies from representing themselves as "tactical security" and the fact is that most are just basic security guards who "dress in black and call it tac" which equates to "all show and no go". So we will dispel the myth and provide you with the truth about "tactical security".  


The reality is that "tactical" is a police and military term, also referred to as "ERT" (Emergency Response Team) and "SWAT" (Special Weapons And Tactics).  In order to compete for these units, police and military members who have already undergone a minimum of 6 months of basic training combined with years of proven general duty experience, must compete to become a "tactical" unit member and then undergo extensive, very specialized and rigorous training. These "best of the best" members dedicate hundreds of hours to train for the absolute worst because they are the ones that other police officers and soldiers call upon for help.  There are very few who can make it through elite military and police training to earn the right to be called "tactical" unit members.  


So let's be real here.  What is a tactical security guard other than a regular civilian guard who took a 40 hour online security guard course, dresses in black and carries extra flashlight and handcuff pouches on their uniform? Most security guard companies are owned, managed and staffed by regular civilians who have little to no specialized training, let alone any law enforcement or military "tactical" training or experience. They have never been in a life and death situation, nor have they been dropped into a combat zone or responded to emergencies where they have selflessly risked their own lives in the most dangerous of situations to protect the lives of others. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TACTICAL SECURITY!   

Our company offers specialized security services that are delivered by members of our Critical Incident Response Team.  All CIRT members are highly trained and experienced (Canadian, US or UK) law enforcement officers or combat soldiers who have served in specialized TAC/ERT/SWAT, crowd management/riot, surveillance, intelligence, G summit security, critical infrastructure protection, dignitary protection, recon, sniper or elite special forces units.  Our CIRT provides specialized security services to respond to labour strikes, protests and/or civil unrest;  to protect critical infrastructure and high security facilities and to provide high-profile security support at major events. On rare occasions our military specialists may deploy internationally to provide armed security, maritime security and VIP protection services in high-threat and combat zones. 


CIRT members have crowd management equipment (riot gear), however; it is rarely required and most of our deployments are resolved through officer presence, effective communication and respect.  Despite the extensive specialized experience and training of our CIRT members, we are NOT the police and private security officers do not have the authority or tools to replace the police.  We are the first line of defence and we work closely with our clients, community stakeholders and local law enforcement agencies to support initiatives to keep the peace and restore order.
