Since 1996, Provident Security has grown from a one-man operation providing security at high school dances to becoming one of British Columbia’s largest security firms . With a team of more than 100, and more than 10,000 installed systems, Provident provides complete electronic security installation, service, monitoring and response services as well as a full complement of security guard and consulting services.
Of course, what we are most famous for is our guaranteed five-minute response service.
Provident was incorporated in 1996 by Michael Jagger to provide special event security services as a means to help cover University tuition. The company was started using a $500 limit on a personal Mastercard and has since grown to become one of Vancouver’s largest privately held, full-service security firms.
With offices in both Kerrisdale and Whistler, we offer a complete range of services for residential and commercial clients including security and video system design, installation, monitoring and guaranteed response services. In addition, we provide uniformed security guards as well as a complete 24/7 concierge service.
Since starting with our first client, York House School, in 1996 providing security at high school dances, Provident has grown to become the only security firm in Vancouver that offers a complete range of security services without contracting out any part of our operations.
We own our own 24/7 central monitoring facility in Kerrisdale where we monitor alarm and video signals for more than 7,000 systems in Vancouver and Whistler. From our sales team to the installation, customer service, alarm dispatch and alarm response teams, every person involved in our client’s security is a Provident employee. Client information is never shared with outside companies. – less
