Security Services Across Ontario

Innovative Security Management (1998) Inc. (ISM Security) is a privately owned Canadian Corporation that was registered and incorporated on December 11, 1998. The company was licenced in January of 2001 to provide security guard services and in January 2004 to provide investigation services. The President of ISM Security is Gordon J. Fisher. Since being licenced in January of 2001 (Guard Division) and January of 2004 (Investigation Division), Mr. Fisher has planned, organized, researched, networked, and successfully launched both the Guard Division and Investigation Division of Innovative Security Management (1998) Inc.


To ensure that both Divisions of ISM Security are well managed and successful, a number of initiatives and resources have been undertaken. As such, Mr. Fisher has used the resources of the The Small Business Centre of London, Ontario Management Development Program of Fanshawe College, The Private Security Service and Investigative Service Act, 2005, Canadian Private Security Manual, The Canadian Private Investigator’s Manual, and completed a course in Advanced Surveillance certified with the Spy Academy. In addition, experience in Law Enforcement, Security and Investigations has been acquired through sixteen years as a Corrections Officer, five years as an Auxiliary Police Officer, president of licenced agency since 2001, and in Law & Security field, since 1984.


The primary services provided by ISM Security are highly trained uniformed Security Guards, Private Investigators, Loss Prevention Officers, Personal Protection, Labor Disputes, Security Services, Event Security, and other security services in London and Southwestern Ontario. Initially, the primary geographic area targeted was London and surrounding areas, however it should be noted that we have provided security services to many clients in many regions of Ontario.

Our employees are graduates of Police Foundations programs from Westervelt College, Fanshawe College, Lampton College, Ex- Military Police, EX Police, Armed Guards, Corrections Officers, Firefighters, Paramedics, and in-house highly trained Security Guards.

“ It was most helpful to the students to gain experience in this environment and beneficial to the development of the technical investigator.

The ministry takes great pride in the training it offers to police technical investigators, which has proven to be the best offered in North America. This training would not be possible without the support of local businesses.

Once again, thank you for your continued support of law enforcement in the community.”

Peter ShadgettDirector, CISO. Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services

“Your comprehensive review of all safety and security aspects with regard to the Festival and its patrons during the time leading up to the protest planned for our Opening was invaluable to our successfully launching our season. The knowledge, response time and professionalism that emanated from your staff was impressive.

On behalf of the Festival’s audience, artists and staff please pass on to your team our profound appreciation.

P.S.: Thanks for having your team respond to our needs and requests. Your team was very responsive and valuable to our position when reacting with situations at the gates and Main Building entrances.”

“On behalf of King’s College and Orchestra London, thank you for your continued support of Music Reigns, The Gala. This year’s event featured the upbeat music of ABBAMANIA and Orchestra London, a fabulous silent auction and a lovely dinner. It is due to the support of people like you that the event was such a huge success.

We greatly appreciated having your security officers at The London Convention Centre on Thursday, May 4 and Friday, May 5. It was comforting to know that your staff were there keeping an eye on things and insuring that the event was a pleasant experience for everyone.”

“My wife and I have been tenants of Homestead at 1128 Adelaide St. N. for
over 2 years. Recently our building received the services of ISM Innovative
Security Management to deal with an extended situation in the building. I
believe Homestead set up the service. Over the roughly 2 weeks that ISM
staff were in our building I met several of their staff including Jimmy D.

These security professionals were professional, polite and patient. My wife
told me that one young man even held the door open for her one afternoon as
her hands were full with bags. Many other tenants in our building are
seniors and I'm sure they appreciated the professional and polite service as

I realize that the situation that these security professionals were at our
building was very sensitive and I saw that they worked with Homestead, the
LPS and any other personnel very well to get the job done. We appreciate the
security work that they did here. It made a difficult situation much easier
to handle knowing that we had such professional security personnel on-site.”

“My name is Sydney Hamill, I'm writing this email today wanting to acknowledge the outstanding professionalism and performance of your ISM team that works at the Spoke at the University of Western Ontario.
I am a very frequent visitor of the student bar, especially on Wednesday night Rick McGhie's. Supervisor Charles (Chuck) makes such an effort emphasizing how to properly discipline students and patrons when things get out of hand while still giving the person a fair chance. The ISM team presents a figure of authority there by creating a safe and comforting feel while promoting a fun and an enjoyable environment.
Being a second year student I very much enjoy having a fun and entertaining time but all within reason and your team allows that to happen in such a manner.”
