Has this company been fined or charged yet ?

I respect the people wanting to work for free, but come on ?? Lol

When I say for free, I mean cheap wage. Observe and Report.

Yes, they have been dinged with violation tickets and had other charges previously.

Only a matter of time before it happens again.

I love it

You also need a real badge and forage cap

In reference to the second image showing the drop leg 'holster' for the radio:

Now, in the event
that you approach an assailant,

Here's what I want you to do:

You're gonna pull up, left hip forward, placing your right hand
on your away hip thusly, giving the illusion that you have a gun.

Which, of course, we both know you don't.

Okay? But you know what we do have?

Our voices! We have our voices.

If you remember one thing
from today, it's this:
The mind is the only weapon
that doesn't need a holster.

Yes, Ontario prohibits security guards from carrying badges. The fines are much larger though. (upto $25,000)


Up to $25,000? That’s a huge fine!! I wonder if they got badges for all their employees or if the owner just bought one online for himself?

They have been fined before and there's more on the way.

I had a friend forward me the charges and short form wordings for offenses under SG act. Once I get back from vacation, there will be some happy hunting.

This sounds awesome. I hope the book being dropped on them is being dropped from the top of a sky-scraper, need that terminal velocity for maximum legislated effect.

They should suspend or revoke their SG license

Doesn’t seem the SG Act is working if they have wanna be company’s like this doing illegal business on the Act

There probably aren't too many compliance checks occurring or people don't care enough to complain so they get away with it until someone finally calls them out on it. I didn't know they were violating any laws until those who live there mentioned it.

Side note since they (ETF) have sew-ons: Does anyone know why officers in the states wear their badges but officer/members here do not?

I see that now. Seems municipal police services in Saskatchewan do but Alberta doesn't. Interesting. Other places probably do as well. Might just be an Alberta thing.

There not a lot of investigators in the province. The ones that are here, work mostly out of TO and have to travel all over the province.

From what I understand, the RCMP did not even issue metal ID badges until the 1950s or 1960s, as I read a story about how, during WWII, members in Saskatchewan who were repairing radio tower sites were approached by farmers with firearms who thought the members were Nazi / Axis "agents" - the members supposedly showed the "warrants of appointment", or ID cards.

I had to surrender my silver badge when I received my gold one - I was not quick enough to have "lost" it while "fishing" when "my wallet, which contained my badge, fell out of my back pocket, and I was unable to retrieve it, as I was out at the deepest part of Lake Whatever-Which-Is-Known-To-Be-Badass-Deep", as happened to a few much-longer-serving members back then.

If you haven't seen the baton video, it's worth a check out.

I'm sure he did a million takes and THAT was the best one.

Same with British Columbia, there aren't very many investigators here either. Investigators here belong to the Ministry of Attorney General - Security Programs Division, though. To my understanding, they do a lot of travelling as well and are also responsible for vehicle armor and armored cars, body armor and metal recyclers on top of security licensing and applicable regulations.

Seems like a strained resource, that's a lot of stuff to look at.
