Guess they are exempt from signaling turns and coming to a complete stop to boot!

I’ve seen their vehicles around. I wonder if they have any equipment in their cars that isn’t allowed. I may have to do a traffic stop and see.

Perusing their videos, they are equipped with white and amber flashing lights, and spot lights. And either defective signal lights or they just simply don't utilize them. Not sure what the rules are for extra lights on vehicles out there.

With the amount of pockets they have on their persons and to directly quote "goodies," I would not be surprised if they had some interesting equipment on them. Supposedly they are going to have an armed division?

Absolutely epic training video from their website. It sure was nice of the banquet hall to let them use their ballroom...

And if you click on the security licence .jpg file on said website you'll find the owners home address in Brampton :roll:

An "elite" response from an "elite" company. As opposed to ignoring the criticism like a professional, CEO and Founder Ernesto Hernandez gets a little defensive instead when people say bad things on youtube.

Interesting that security vehicles don't have to be marked as per the "Private Security and Investigative Services Act" of Ontario. Only if it's marked does it have to meet the requirements...

Wow, that's harsh. The one guy on Facebook who gave this clownshoes company a five-star rating should seriously reconsider in light of the owner's immaturity.

Oh wait ...

... it was the owner himself who gave his own company a five-star rating.

Link to their instagram photo where someone asks about what is strapped to one of their legs with the response of "thigh holster and some goodies." https://www.instagram.com/p/BaUL3oNhLc8/?taken-by=etfsec

The ones that are used for patrol seem to have 'ghost' decaling on the driver door as seen faintly in this image of theirs: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZHHnOnhBET/?taken-by=etfsec

And their reference to having an 'armed division' is found here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BNAcmhhlBj8/?taken-by=etfsec Don't think they handle CIT or Nuclear so yeah...

Good eye Hattie.

Those vehicle markings most certainly do not comply with the Private Security and Investigative Services Act Regulations.

Private Security and Investigative Services Act Regulations
O. Reg. 364/07: VEHICLES

Marked vehicles
3. (1) If a vehicle is marked as being a vehicle used in the provision of security guard services, it must comply with the requirements of this section. O. Reg. 364/07, s. 3 (1).
(2) The word “SECURITY” or “SÉCURITÉ”, in upper case letters, must be prominently displayed in a colour that contrasts with the colour of the vehicle,
(a) on both sides of the vehicle, in letters not less than 10 centimetres high; and
(b) on the front and back of the vehicle, in letters not less than 8 centimetres high. O. Reg. 364/07, s. 3 (2).

Someone should give out one of these (I’m from BC, apologies if this is the wrong form)

I try to keep a keen eye but to be honest I think I just wasted more time than anyone should reviewing their instagram posts. It was slightly entertaining and provided some comedic relief.

(maybe I am secretly considering joining up..........not)

They've got "goodies", but...
Do they have K9 dogs who fly F7 hornets in perfect formation while barking hostage negotiation terms in 37 languages?
Becase Harry's company does.

Also loving the push bars on the Chargers...
didn't realize security gets into hide speed pit manuevers while doing mall parking lot patrols.

This company appears to have been contracted by the Toronto Catholic School Board.
