Securiguard maintains a highly trained canine (K-9) division that is certified in narcotic and explosive detection as well as canine protection patrols. Developed for high-risk situations, Securiguard's K-9 division was the first private patrol certified by the RCMP.

The division has since been expanded to include foot patrols for customer sites, as well as providing explosives, weapons and narcotics detection services. You will find our K9 teams working many high-profile sites at major transportation hubs and urban/rural locations throughout the province. Securiguard K9 teams benefit from expert training staff with Police K9 expertise. Our K9 service has been used effectively in crowd control situation for major events. The use of a dog in conjunction with trained security guards adds a high level of deterrence and peace of mind for our clients.

Our K-9 teams are geared for rapid response to assist our clients with unique challenges in camps, airports, cruise ships, trucking and shipping environments as well as for the physical protection of assets such as remote parking lots and commercial properties.

We're currently accepting applications for K9 Handlers to join our team of certified professionals. Training will be provided but a Security Workers License and passion for working with dogs are essential. Our K9 teams are then validated and certified through the Justice Institute of British Columbia in Protection, Narcotics or Explosive Detection.
