Keeping our Clients safe for over 30 years

Welcome to CPS image
Our consultants are able to significantly reduce our clients’ liability by providing the most effective means of security specific to the scope of each assignment. Whether it is electronic security or an investigative approach, we are confident that through detailed risk and threat assessments C.P.S is able to accurately determine the proper security measures needed.

C.P.S agents are trained using the latest standards of quality and performance meeting the requirements of the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services. Each agent is licensed, insured and must pass a rigorous training program prior to the commencement of their duties. This ensures consistency for all C.P.S personnel.

Our integrative solutions have been the key to our success in maintaining strong, long-term relationships with our clients. By combining electronic security systems with highly trained security personnel, C.P.S is effective in all aspects of protection, which is an essential requirement desired by clients when facing today’s site demands.

How It Works:

When audio and visual deterrents are triggered, 97% of intruders leave because they know they’ve been caught. In most cases they leave empty handed without causing any damage to your property. In the rare instance they boldly remain on the premises, we notify authorities or our Mobile Response Team.

CPS pairs high-tech cameras and advanced software with live video monitoring done by a virtual guard to identify – and stop – intrusion as it’s happening.
The Value of CPS Video Monitoring Services

Our video security monitoring solution protects your business from crime, interrupted work, and more by detecting and thwarting would-be thieves and vandals.
Even if an intruder isn’t actively malicious, you may be held liable for trespassers who injure themselves on your property – and our audiovisual deterrence system will discourage them from pressing onward.

CPS live surveillance monitoring systems act quickly and effectively, keeping your business safe no matter what happens. Our security camera monitoring service leverages technology alongside live surveillance monitored remote human guards to ensure your business is protected.

Taken as a whole, the CPS video surveillance services will keep your business proactively protected in a way that traditional surveillance cameras and old-fashioned banks of CCTV monitors simply can’t.

Your business needs a surveillance monitoring system that can prevent crimes, not just help clean up after the burglar is long off your property.
Vacant Property Security with Virtual Guard Services

Vacant homes and buildings attract the attention of various unwanted elements. You don’t want thieves, vandals or curious local youth looking to cause harm, plunder piping, or simply looking to explore on your property. When unauthorized individuals break into your vacant properties, they put both themselves and your real estate investment at risk. Even if your property is not actively being used, robust vacant property security is critical to reduce potential damage and minimize your legal liability.

CPS offers remote security monitoring and virtual guard services for round-the-clock vacant property security. We make it possible to keep your vacant properties safe at all hours, day and night, without having to staff them with expensive on-site guards. Our unique real estate property security solutions will deter trespassers, catch thieves, and protect your assets.

CPS vacant property security uses special recognition software that automatically identifies and responds to intruders and other threats. Our software instantly alerts the trained staff of our virtual guard services, who evaluate potential threats in real time. Our virtual guards can respond by contacting monitors, activating remote deterrents or alerting the local authorities.

Through the combination of our remote security monitoring and virtual guard services, you can rest assured knowing that you have the best vacant property security on the market.

Canadian Protection Services has a widespread service area. Included in these areas is downtown Hamilton and downtown St. Catharines where our team is constantly encountering direct dealings with the homeless population as well as the individuals within our community who live with mental illness and struggle with addiction.

Working with the homeless community was a constant learning curve for the team as there are many different struggles that come with being homeless or less fortunate, such as: mental illness, disabilities and addiction. Canadian Protection Services quickly realized that the homeless population we directly encounter, was quickly increasing faster than the team could keep up with learning about their struggles to better work with them.

In late 2016, Canadian Protection Services brought on their very first in-house Social Worker to the management team, Sarah Weatherston. Upon joining the team, Sarah was fully trained as a patrol driver and then began riding along with the patrol staff to get a better first-hand experience of the specific barriers that we needed to overcome as a company to better work with the community.

In 2017, Sarah implemented a program within Canadian Protection Services to better support the homeless population. Often, the patrol drivers encounter vagrants sleeping at response calls or loitering at sights that the company is responsible for. The patrol drivers will then contact Sarah with the person’s information, and Sarah will find a shelter for the individual to stay at so they are off the property and sheltered for the night. This concludes with satisfaction for the client, satisfaction for Canadian Protection Services, and satisfaction for the vagrant who will then have a warm place to spend the night.

Sarah constantly keeps the company cruisers equipped with boxes that contain snacks, water, Gatorade, hats, socks, gloves, scarves, hand and foot warmers, and personal hygiene products for those within the community who are in need of these products. Sarah is on-call 24/7, 7 days a week. Sarah works closely with a contact at Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) and is in the process of having all of the patrol staff trained in SafeTalk training to better support those in need within our community. Sarah spends her time riding along during different shift times with different patrol drivers to assist at calls or responds directly from her residence, to calls where she is needed.

In addition to the community, Sarah is completely available to any of the team members who require any kind of support or are looking for social resources. She responds to sites and will support any team member confidentially and provide any resources they may be looking for.

Since Sarah deals primarily confidentially with our team, she also handles our complaints department. Any complaint that comes to management, although there are not many, is handled discreetly and professionally.

Matthew has worked as a static guard, mobile patrol, mobile supervisor, trainer in many courses as well as close protection and client services.

He strives to ensure every client receives the stellar service CPS is known for throughout the industry.
Matthew works side by side with Owner and CEO Ron Hazell to ensure every site is given that added touch of excellence of service. What most clients don’t see is Ron and Matthew out in the wee hours of the night giving our clients properties that added protection.

Canadian Protection Services believes strongly in being a locally owned, family oriented security company.

Our CEO "Ron Hazell" spends time and works closely with his son Cameron Hazell.

Cameron has just recently graduated from Business Studies at Mohawk College in Hamilton. Hopefully Cameron will apply his studies to Canadian Protection Services as we continue to grow and be a valued leader in the security industry.

Cameron has had the benefit of watching his father throughout his life and was a natural fit to our organization. With the proper mentorship Cameron has quickly grown with the company and has the respect of his peers.
