Why Us


At Canyon Security Specialist & Consulting we believe in a world where communities can walk at night and feel safe in their homes.

So we put it all on the line to make this world a better place and a reality for all our clients.

Passing on the Benefits


We are able to offer security services for lower prices than our competitors because we are a company who believes in offering more to their employees, therefore we operate with less middle management.  With less middle management we have less overhead. That translates to more cost savings passed on to our customers.  Additionally, it translates to higher pay to our employees, this eliminates turnover and makes sure your guard is of the best quality in the industry.  We also provide insurance and retirement options to our employees where some of our competitors do not. We are an honest and fair security company in Phoenix who will provide you supreme services that will exceed your expectations.

Everyone one of their security guards were the most professional and well dressed guards we have ever seen. We were all very impressed. The owners bent over backwards to accommodate us when we needed last minute coverage and did punish us with heavy charges like other companies do. We had guards in suits, and the others were in uniforms and they looked great. We received compliments regarding their courteous and professional demeanor each time we’ve used them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Q&A with our CE0: Kenneth Laird


    What do you love most about your job?

    My job has been in Law Enforcement/Emergency Management over the past 30 years.  I love the positive impact that I have been able to make within my purview, and in my communities as a Law Enforcement/Emergency Management Executive.  I want to bring that experience and provide exemplary service that makes a difference for our clients who request our services.

    What inspired you to start your own business?

    We started this business originally as an off duty security broker of law enforcement (police) services.  Since then we have expanded, into a private security company, we offer a multitude of services to include; armed/unarmed security, private investigation and a variety of consulting services.

    Why should our clients choose you?

    I have employed most of our competitor security providers out in the marketplace, throughout the years in my role as a law enforcement executive.  Throughout those experiences I have seen all of the short comings and successes of what makes companies succeed and what makes companies contracts fail.  We have taken steps in our company to eliminate those short comings.  We hire the best, most qualified individuals to complete our clients requests for services.   We train our guards over and above state requirements. We provide our employees with employment that they can be proud of and provide for their families, which equates into excellent customer service.  We constantly communicate with our clients and our employees, which also equates to excellence in relationships with our employees and our clients.  Our company is very selective of whom we hire, and we provide the best of the best in the industry.  We implore you to try our services as they are truly second to none.
