Who We Are

Guardmore was launched in February of 2006 in Edmonton, Alberta. We are a full-service security provider with nearly a decade of experience and a military-trained management team. With extensive experience in private sector security, the founders recognized the need for change. Rebecca Richmond took a calculated risk and made a courageous investment to start the company with the help of her brother Alex. Today, Guardmore has management offices in Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario and is frequently awarded ongoing contracts with Fortune 500 companies.

Guardmore’s top priority is to uphold a reputation for excellence and to deliver reliable, transparent service. In addition to the highest trained security guards, Guardmore offers unparalleled service through PALTRAC, the most innovative security guard management software on the market. We are always improving and attend multiple business seminars each year to deliver the best service as we continue to grow.
