Mission Statement

The security industry has changed tremendously in the past few years. Hiring practices have changed and overly aggressive styles of operation are no longer in favour. Instead, the objective is to hire and train security staff who demonstrate a more polite and professional approach to security, while still providing excellent customer service. Jonathan Murray, President of Operations at Shield Security Services and his senior management team have decided to adhere to this new and very effective approach. As a result, Shield Security Services succeed in providing service of the highest-quality while maintaining the trust and respect of clients.

About Our President

Jonathan has been working in security and related industries for over 20 years. Along with his reliable and trustworthy team, he is committed to achieving not only a high standard for Shield Security, but in setting the bar for the entire industry. His resume includes the Ottawa Congress Center, training the Toronto Maple Leafs security team, providing security for the Toronto Zoo, and protecting the visiting NATO Assembly in cooperation with the House of Commons and Senate security. Additionally, he has provided close protection security for high-profile clients including Dr. Oz, Jenny McCarthy, and Dr. Patch Adams.

Even after many years of contributing to the field, the philosophy at Shield Security Services remains the same: simply comply with all of the guidelines that the industry has set into place, strive for 100% customer satisfaction, and everything else will follow.
