General Duties

The Diplomatic Security Service (DSS), a subsidiary of the Defense Intelligence Service, is a Private Security Company (PSC) located in British Columbia, Canada. Some of the same people who work for our parent company also help carry out duties for this agency. This allows us to function on the same level as our PSC competitors worldwide.

Our Security Officers are licensed through the Government of British Columbia. But that is our only similarity with other BC companies. We only hire Officers over 21 years of age. After their initial training, they must have a minimum of two years military service, or public/private policing. In addition to BST, DSS Officers must possess Advanced Training (such as handcuffing) and First Aid (minimum OFA Level One with CPR/AED endorsement.)

Communicating effectively is also important. This is why our Officers must comply with Provincial regulations requiring that security workers be proficient with the English language.

All of these requirements set DSS Officers above our competition.

These are some of the General Services available:

  • Security Officers
  • Security Consulting
  • Loss Prevention Officers
  • Special Events

If you have a problem not mentioned above, please contact our office. All calls are confidential.
