Special Event Security 2 banner 700x300

Commissionaires provides professional, responsive and cost-effective security solutions for events of any size. Whether you need our services for a multi-day event or for just a few hours, we have the resources and the expertise to provide vigilant and professional support without overextending your budget.

Our commissionaires, many of whom have experience in law enforcement and the military, are trained beyond provincial security standards to identify potential threats, deter unwanted incidents and de-escalate unwanted behaviour. Commissionaires arrive at the event site fully briefed, professionally dressed and ready to perform their duties.

Special event services can include Threat Risk Assessments, 24-hour security support, traffic and parking control, mobile response, and more.
