I would like to take a moment to congratulate, Colin Canavan on obtaining his Canadian citizenship recently. Colin is originally from North London, UK. and moved here 3.5 years ago on his own. He has been a devoted employee over the past couple of years and through hard work and appreciation of a challenge he is currently Supervising our Community Patrol Division. Colin is also a qualified Level 3 First Aid attendant and can be found providing his skills to some of our major clients. Congratulations again or as we say in French "félicitations"!

Watch out Criminals!

Hello everyone, I just wanted to share some very exciting news with you all. As I'm sure your aware that we started our overnight Ambassador patrol with the Downtown Vancouver Business Association on Sept 2 and have received a very positive response from businesses and the homeless people that we encounter. We are now able to add crime fighters to our list of accomplishments for our overnight team. On Sunday morning at approx 0500 am our team observed a male breaking through a security fence in front of a popular jewelery store in the Downtown core. The team set up as not to alert the suspect and contacted the Vancouver Police Department about the current situation. The suspect was seen entering the store and after about a minute,leaving with a backpack at a brisk pace. The team followed the suspect until the Police apprehended the male a few blocks away. I just wanted to congratulate Will and his team and the Vancouver Police on an excellent job.

Hello everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know about the wonderful time we had at the Southlands County fair last Sunday. Southlands County Fair provides partial funding to several program like the Summer Riding program which enables underprivileged kids to take a series of riding lessons. As well, donations are provided to Pacific Riding for Developing Abilities and Southlands Therapeutic Riding Society with the remainder of funds raised are used to support the Southlands Riding club who has been non-profit since 1943. This is our second year at the event and again it provided us the opportunity to reconnect with the community and our supportive clients. It still amazes how you can drive just a few minutes from your home and end up in a place that looks like you out in the country side and far away from the action of a big city. We at Genesis Security appreciate these types of opportunities to be able to give back to the community and for us it reconfirms our commitment to the community.

Consumers Choice Award.......It’s a Repeat!!!

It is with a great amount of pride that I formally announce the news that Genesis Security Group has once again been awarded the Consumers Choice Award for Security Guard Services.

As a past winner in 2007, we are very pleased to repeat this honour.
Considered a ‘Seal of Excellence’ within the community and beyond, this prestigious honor signifies our on-going commitment to quality, service and value.

Unique to North America, the Consumers Choice Award is an initiative of Consumers’ Choice Institute (Canada). All winners are determined by consumers, not a panel of judges or professional food critics. Consumers and local businesses are surveyed by an independent company, and are asked to vote for an establishment that they feel represents the ultimate in “…excellence, based on the elements of quality, service, value and appearance.”

The fact that the award is determined by consumers makes it all the more noteworthy in my opinion, as Genesis is always striving to be a leader both within the Community and our own industry.

Thanks must go out to all of our clients, employees and the public who support our Community Patrol.

As the awards ceremony nears, we will release more details.
