I definitely recommend Intercept for all security services. They performed a risk assessment to help us determine where we should focus our security efforts. With mobile patrol at night and parking enforcement during the day, my property has never been safer.

Intercept Security Services guard the apartment building where I live. I used to be in an unsafe neighbourhood, and I was nervous it would be the same where I moved. However, the guards at the front desk are always so friendly and helpful, and there's someone there 24/7. I always feel safe, and I love that I never have to worry about unauthorized people entering the building. Plus, when I have guests park in the parking lot, they never have to worry about damage to their vehicle. Intercept is the best!

I got my security training and licence from Intercept. Instructor Mr. Arshad was really helpful and humble. His way of teaching is really efficient. I will surely recommend this institute if you are willing to get your security licence.
