For over 80 years, the Commissionaires Victoria, the Islands and Yukon have worked right here in the Comox Valley, serving the community, and helping keep residents and businesses safe. Now they’re proud to be expanding service offerings, with a new, more accessible office space on Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay.
“We’re excited to be moving to the heart of Courtenay. We’ve been part of the community for decades and our new office will really put us front-and-centre,” says Chris Duncan, North Island Client Services and Sales Manager.
You’ve probably interacted with the Commissionaires countless times while going about your day-to-day life in the Comox Valley. They provide security at 19 Wing CFB Comox, Comox Valley RCMP, Service Canada and other businesses, and with a new office space and resources, you’ll start seeing a lot more of them.
“We’re expanding our mobile service area, video response and surveillance services, which means we’ll be able to build new relationships with businesses across a wider area,” Duncan says.
The Commissionaires was founded to connect military veterans with meaningful employment in local communities following their return from service. While they now accept employees from all walks of life, their dedication to their social mandate hasn’t changed. As a locally owned and operated not-for-profit organization, Commissionaires offers best-in-class security services while offering employees some of the best pay incentives and benefits in the industry.
Commissionaires is a full-service organization, which means services are fully customizable for clients, and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week:
- Security guarding: Posting a guard at your business during specified times.
- Mobile guarding: A guard checks-in on your business regularly, or responds to triggers from video or other surveillance technology.
- Live video surveillance and installation: With 24/7 monitoring, get peace-of-mind knowing your business is being secured. Rather than just responding to issues, live surveillance can prevent a crime from taking place at all.
- Security audits: A security audit will assess your needs and location to offer professional, customized advice to improve safety. Commissionaires’ security experts can offer risk mitigation advice on everything from innovative video options to simple environmental factors like improving lighting.
The Commissionaires are excited to start the new year in a new office, and plan to provide other convenient services in the coming months.
